Assalaamu 'Alaikum Brothers and Sisters!
Are you interested in doing da'wah to non muslims ? I believe you are!
But the Western media is the tool of Satan working as a curtain to constantly drop infront of the Western peoples' eyes so they never see the truth about Islam. Western countries' people have been brain washed and duped by their media so much that they take fright at the mention of Islam and most of them will shield their intellects and thoughts as to not listen to your da'wah reasonings.
And so, I reckon it would be best if we get them to read and listen and view Islamic articles, audios and videos without them knowing at the beginning that it is Islamic teachings they are experiencing. Once they start getting interested, only then we can reveal to them that it is Islamic teachings they were experiencing all this time. This will make them surprised and they will realize the media has been lying to them all along when they say Islam is an unpeaceful Religion and they will get interested to learn more and more about the truth and they will never believe their media anymore regarding Islam. And, that is what we want. We want to reach the non-muslims more than the Western media that is prejudiced against Islam. Otherwise, if we mention at the beginning that we are going to give them materials on Islam, the very first thing they would (do due to prejudices towards Islam) is turn their faces away sealing their hearings and visions (Deaf, Dumb and Blind, they will not return to the straight path). So, our materials would be falling on blocked ears, eyes, brains and hearts. That's not what we want.
Anyway, the best way (in my opinion) is to give da'wah via the internet as that is a tool that can communicate with people from one side of the world to the other. But, we can't force people to click links to visit Islamic websites and so I reckon one of the best way to attract millions of non-muslim audiences is to bring them (at their unawareness) to the doorsteps of materials that teach and promote the teachings of Islam. And that, I reckon we can do by the help of computer softwares as Internet users are always interested in softwares, especially the free ones. This is where, we (me and you) come-in and give away free softwares (that I build by programming) to the internet masses and when they start their software sessions, the softwares would work as they intended in the background while in the foreground they would show text articles on Islam aswell as show Youtube videos on Islam to teach the following:
1. What is Islam;
2. Common Terms between Islam and their religions;
3. Misconceptions about Islam;
4. Prophecies by other Prophets and Messengers (Peach Be Upon Them All) in other Religions and Scriptures about the coming of the Final Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
My idea is to first see which softwares people are willing to pay hundreds of USA dollars for and them build them and finally advertise them all over the internet to give them away for free. This will attract a huge number of people wanting to get their hands on softwares which would have cost them thousands of USA dollars had they purchased them somewhere other than coming to us. Once they start using their software copies, the softwares would start giving Da'wah and lift the blind curtains off their eyes the Western media has dropped on them for so long. And, anyone too prejudiced enough to shut down their copies to stop seeing materials on Islam would find their softwares closed down and not doing the work they got them for. Now, if they want the softwares to work for them then they must force themselves to stop being prejudiced towards Islam. in other words, they have to watch and hear the materials on Islam that the softwares show them. It is as simple as that.
From time to time, the softwares would ask them questions on Islam and prompt them to pick answer from a list of right and wrong answers. If they get their answers wrong too often then that means they are not viewing the materials and just getting the software to do the work for them and so the softwares would stop working or expire. This is to make sure they don't ignore the materials and do go over them.
This is my motto:
To use the software for free: Read, Listen and View the materials the softwares shows you on Islam and learn the real Islam. Answer questions on Islam correctly and use the softwares for free. Otherwise, payup to use them!".
I reckon most users would want to use them for free rather than pay high prices and so they would learn to stop hating materials on Islam and start becoming patient on Islam and go through the materials. One way to prevent prejudiced users from paying up and buying the softwares in order to avoid watching the materials on Islam is to put high prices on the softwares so no one but a crazed would be willing to pay.
Now, the question is what kind of softwares would be in demand that users would be willing to use everytime they logon to the internet ?
The following softwares or sites people use everytime or regular when they log online and so my softwares must be as good as them:
1. Internet Browsers (IE, Fire Fox, Netscape Navigator);
2. Webmails (Hotmail, Yahoo Mail);
4. Social Networks (facebook, youtube).
So any ideas ? What softwares do you reckon non muslims would use regularly everyday or atleast once every 2 or 3 days ?
Currently, I can only build softwares that deal with the browser to automate the browser. So, whatever you can do in a web browser, I can get the software to mimic your fingersteps in the browser (so to speak) but at a faster and tireless pace repetitively. The software would have a browser. Think of the software to be an automated browser. A browser automation tool. A bot. What you can do in a browser, the software would be able to do the same in it's own browser. Normally in a browser you do the following and so it can do likewise too:
1. Type text such as in webforms and search boxes and conduct searches and registrations/signups;
2. Click links and buttons (such as click search buttons on searchengines to conduct keyword searches);
3. Scrape Data onto your hard drive from webpages such as links, prices and articles etc.
I can program the software to do all that too. I can build softwares to do things like:
* Spin articles/content (content spinner);
* Mass create accounts (auto register/signup to forums, social networks, webmails, etc.)
* Mass login to accounts (webmails, forums, social networks, etc.)
* Bulk message members on social networks, forums, etc.
* Mass submit links to searchengines, directories, etc.
* Do keyword research by scraping keyword suggestions from searchengines and make lists;
* Keyword search on searchengines and scrape links found under the keywords and make lists;
* Find blogs with comment section open and leave your comments and links;
* Scrape content such as articles and prices from websites;
* Backlink check on webpages;
* Find links that providel links DoFollow status;
* and so on.
Don't suggest me a software or bot idea that will commit cheating/fraud or indecency or something that only you yourself would use but believe others would not as my main aim is to get as many people using my softwares as possible so our da'wah is seen by as many people possible. Not interested in gaming or contest bots. And remember, right now I am not charging you to build the softwares. I just need a good software idea which will endup in millions of people using them regularly. That's all.

Are You A Parent?
The "Ultimate Parenting Course" is Coming to Town
Surah Yusuf is an amazing surah that deals with the HUMAN CONSCIENCE in the form of a story. One aspect of this story is the relationship between the child and the parent. On this point Shaykh Mohammad Akram Nadwi comments as follows:
"The unifying concern of this surah is human conscience – how it is informed, how it is trained and tested, how it is supported and rewarded. This concern is not presented as an argument or doctrine but as a story. We need to reflect on the central concern of the surah and also on why the form of a story works so well to convey it...
Conscience is located in the deep interior of a person; it is separate and removed (in some ways, protected) from the external world and from the habits of other people. The unfolding of the story in this surah is a demonstration that the integrity of a person’s conscience is sustained by their commitment to connection with God. The attitude and behaviour of Ya’qub and Yusuf, ‘alayhimaas-salam, throughout the intricately woven incidents, demonstrate that these two men are, at all times, aware of being in the presence of God and answerable to Him. The feeling never leaves them that God is present and God is good: when there is not the least sign of things turning out well for them, they seem able to wait with a gracious patience for things to turn out well. At no point do either of them neglect to think, speak and act in the best way, i.e. in the way most pleasing to God.
Conscience is a personal teacher. What it teaches is sometimes also taught by social convention and religious rules, and laws derived from these. But in the end, norms and conventions, the rules and laws in society, are not sufficient to deter people from doing wrong – if they see other people do something wrong and get away with it, they think: why shouldn’t I do the same? Only a strong, healthy conscience can prevent people from following the habits and manners of the people around them and, instead, doing what pleases God and doing it in the way that pleases God." - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi
There are many different courses, books and lectures on parenting and raising children by both Muslims as well as Non-Muslims. This informs us that there is a real issue with raising good children as well as "raising" good parents. But the irony is that these materials and courses often times deal with issues in very superficial ways focusing on techniques, methods, skills, philosophies and ideas. Far from being helpful these are sometimes harmful to both the child and the parent. What is beneficial is beneficial only in a very limited context. The simple reason for this is that they do not really deal with the human conscience which makes the moral judgements and not to mention the fact that the authors themselves have no strong and healthy conscience.
The "Ultimate Parenting Course" is the one that makes the concern of the HUMAN CONSCIENCE central and most important - this is none other than Surah Yusuf - The Best of Stories. If you want to be a good parent and if you want your children to be good children then having a deep understanding of Surah Yusuf is a must for you. This is an opportunity for the whole family with crèche facilities for younger children (2-12 years). You cannot afford to miss this lifetime opportunity.
Book your place now as the registrations are nearing an end.
