And what's the prize? LOL. Remember brother 'Mu'min'? He used to have competitions on this forum and actually send out prizes. That was so cool.

Oh I forgot to put it in that thread that there will be awards! HOWEVER they will just be little blinkies or small images saying which place you got :sl:

 

I don't work, but Insh'Allah someday if I do and I make good money, I will have competitions with real "prizes."

 

BUT these contents aren't to try and win something, rather to just have fun with.

 

Masha'Allah brother Mu'min was SOOOO generous! May Allah protect him and bless him always and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the prophet Muhammed and his family! ameen

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

I suggest that when you make the poll in the end you don't write the name of the author, but just the poem so that people really vote for the poems themselves without being biased.
