Muslim Programmer Intending To Build Da'wah Softwares

Recommended Posts

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);
3. Searchengines;
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.

Jazakallahu Khair!

Wa alaikum assalam brother

 

First, please do not add an s to the word "software". Its both a singular and plural word.

Now about your idea. I think your approach to dawah is not a very nice one. You're trying to force people to learn something they did not intend to. People must have an interest in something before you start introducing it to them. Reading your thoughts, its as if you're trying to enslave people into doing whatever you want. People are not animals you know. You can train an animal through giving bits of food at a time when they do the moves you're training them to do. But its humiliating to do so with people.

Besides, all the software examples you gave are already there free of charge, without having to dictate anything on them. Let alone compete with giants like Google, Mozilla or Microsoft.

 

Its much better to think differently. You can build software in the category of stuff like.. meditating, soul searching, mind relaxing, stress management..etc. In general, software to people who are tired of the stress of modern technology and materialistic life. People who look for happiness that western values failed to provide..etc.

Such audience would feel that what you give them is close to their hearts, and probably what they've been looking for. The software would perhaps let them listen to a few verses recited by a beautiful and attractive voice, listen to the adhan, read some quotes of wisdom and tranquility from the companions of the prophet, or showing videos of how Islam is best friend of the environment, best solution for world peace, and ultimately the best way of life.

Dot,

 

I am not forceully trying to enslave people into Islam. Most western or caucasian people believe in misconceptions about Islam due to their media brain washing them against Islam. Now, you will find a lot of people that do not want to hear about Islam due to them thinking it is a religion of crazy people. How are you going to get the Islamic message through to them when they shield their eyes and ears the very moment Islam is mentioned to them ?

I thought the best way to do that is see what softwares they are interested in and build them. This way, when they play the softwares the softwares would work in the background and in the foreground show videos on Islam. Out of curiosity the brain washed people will watch the videos just to see what the software is showing them. This is one way I would be able to get through to them with the Islamic message. now, once they view the message then they will realise it is not a Religion for the crazed and figure-out that their media is a hypocritical liar.

It is like you knocked on the door of a Christian and before you can open your mouth with Da'wah the person inside slams the door on your face because as soon as he sees your Muslim dressing he thinks you are a crazy Muslim at his door to butcher him because his media taught him that's what Muslims are. Now, did you get your Islamic da'wah through to him ? No. So, what is your next step ? You findout he watches a certain drama everyday and so you decide to pay the tv station money to air your da'wah message at the breaktime/advertising time when that particular drama is shown. What will be the result ? That person would view your da'wah message when the drama is paused by the station to show adverts and he would realise Islam is not what the media has been portraying all along. He will try to learn more to see how much the media has been lying and as he goes along researching to find more and more about Islam he would start getting interested in it and might convert. Had you not taken steps to get your da'wah message through to him in a clever way and just left and given up on him the moment he slammed his door on your face then he never would have converted/reverted.

My point is, people do not read about Islam because they are not interested in a religion they deem to be violent due to their media telling them that. So, one way or another we must get them to hear, read, view etc. the true message and then they will learn that they have been lied to and readily hear, view etc. more to learn more and just might convert/revert. My softwares is like the ad break.

There is no forcing of conversion/reversion here. Just a clever way of getting the true message of Islam out to the masses who are not willing to learn about Islam only due to their media lying to them and making them think it is a violent Religion. The media blinded them against Islam through lies. I want to show them the light of Islam thorugh the softwares. If they want to walk the straight path or stay in their beent paths then that is upto them but we must put ourselves in a position to tget the message though to them.

Perhaps I didn't make my idea clear enough. The thought of introducing Islam without labeling it Islam is not bad. I just recommended the areas more suitable for it. I'm also against the idea of "to use this software, you should listen to this, or do that..". In my view, this is humiliating to Islam.

Mmm. I think you have a point as my good intentions might endup getting bad results.

Ok. Then, I have to find ways to show the materials without indirectly forcing people to view. maybe, I just open side windows minimised in size on the softwares where the windows would show the materials. This way, if users want to read they can maximise and when they don't want to read they can minimize or close the windows.

      "Arise and Give Warning!" - Surah Al-Muddaththir in the British Context

      "You,  wrapped in your cloak, arise and give warning! Proclaim the greatness  of your Lord; cleanse yourself; keep away from all filth; do not be  overwhelmed and weaken; be steadfast in your Lord’s cause" [surah Al-Muddaththir 74:1-7]



      How do we warn people? What do we warn about? Who do we warn? Is it our duty to warn? How do we handle the consequences? Why are we uncomfortable to warn? How is it applicable in the UK?



      No doubt these are important questions that many of us would have in our minds about the command to warn people.

      "We think that warning is harsh and unfashionable so we only give people the good news.  But we don't realise that warning is part of the good news. You strike  and alert people's minds with the warning (or bad news) so that they  would be eager to receive the good news. Good news alone without  warning has little effect. This can be seen in the Christian tradition  when the Privy Council decided that Hell fire is not an essential part  of Christian belief, opposing Jesus' teachings. Fear of God should be  dominant in people's minds and that is why Prophet Muhammad (SAW)  started his mission with warning. We will learn this in detail in Surah  Al-Muddaththir" - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi

      Coming up this Saturday in Cambridge (and Worldwide through live on-line  access), for the first time in the UK, a detailed explanation of Surah  Al-Muddaththir by Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi, one of the foremost  scholars and thinkers of the Western world today.

      Please sign up today for this amazing groundbreaking explanation of Surah Al-Muddaththir....

      "The Magnificent Journey continues... Today's  seminar was yet another awesome seminar in the series with exceptional  crowd and amazing insights from Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi. This is truly a  historic seminar series on the explanation of The Quran and is  redefining our understanding and relationship with the Book of Allah.  The emphasise of Dr Nadwi on establishing our connection with Allah and  utilising the space given to us for recognising one God, is the key  highlight of these seminars. Each seminar begins by strongly negating  the wrong practises which have been introduced in the true teachings of  worshipping one Allah and then builds on it by inviting us to ponder on  the sings of Allah and get closer to our Rabb. Truly inspiring series, I  would strongly recommend everybody including men, women and families to  attend the Magnificent Journey Seminars as these are life changing and  truly install this urge of loving the Book of Allah. The subtle nuances  of the language which make the Qur'an such a powerful speech are  beautifully explained by Dr Akram Nadwi in a nice balanced way keeping  the things simple and interesting at the same time. His tremendous  scholarships of Hadith literature and exceptional skills of Arabic  language make this series a unique experience and a historic event in  the city of Cambridge."- Awais Ahmed Awan, Cambridge

      "Jazakumullahu khayran. I can't thank you  enough for the opportunity. I am so impressed by the Sheikh,  subhanallah, mashaAllah. A very rare example of tradition fused with  awareness of the environment and reality while not compromising God  consciousness. If only there were more like him. Questions, I'm so glad  we can ask them even if it's not about the sura. Yes, how else are we to  learn from his wisdom and experience if we don't ask? The issues facing  Muslims in the West are so many and so confusing and I just love the  fact that he does not have an inferiority complex about Islam. It's  really sad to see psychologically defeated scholars start throwing away  tradition in the name of progress and fitting in. Sheikh Akram Nadwi  gives you the sense that the real life is in the hereafter so don't have  to get so tied up with the philosophies and controversies that  sometimes take away our attention from the real purpose. The onus is on  us, are we being pious?" - Aisha Barkatulla, Cambridge

      "How magnificent to have spent a weekend in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and his companions, reading and studying their ahadeeth. I feel as though I was transported to their  times and have returned with renewed strength and resolve to continue the work we  need to do in the ‘Daar ud-Da’wah’ we live in. I am sitting here with Ijaazah in  hand feeling honoured that Allah allowed me to be a student of Sheikh Akram  Nadwi and through him find some connection with some of the great scholars of  our past. From his poignant scholarly anecdotes, to his emphatic  exhortations, punctuated with Urdu and Persian poetry; studying with the Sheikh is a  truly enriching experience. I’m actually learning a lot from him both about  rectifying myself and the most important focal points for that and rectifying some  of the causes of the downfall of our Ummah today. Without resorting to alienating any particular group or school of thought, the  Sheikh is not afraid to hold a mirror up to what needs changing in our  communities and in our times. I liked the balance of holistic spiritual principles and  finer technical details Sheikh also discussed and his lessons are suitable for serious students of knowledge and people who  are in the early stages of their journey. I look forward to future  courses. I found the crèche facility to be very useful. I would have found it very difficult to attend without it. The venue was great and respected the privacy of brothers and sisters. May Allah make knowledge a proof for us and not against us. Ameen" - Fatima Barkatullah, London (Testimonial on the Forty Hadith Course)


            "This course has really been far beyond my expectations  Sheikh Akram  has given me a new perspective on the topics covered, including a lot  of wisdom and bringing the topic away from the superficial discussions  to the core essential foundations that need to be understood by every  da'ee. It has completely change my perspective on the inner dimension of  a da'ee and the outer expectations of a da'ee. I have rarely seen  that depth of understanding when it comes to the dawah. May Allah bless  him, increase him in knowledge and wisdom and allow all the da'ees to  benefit from his wisdom and his understanding." - Steeve Brador, London

      English Defence League (EDL) in Makkah?

      This  statement may come as a surprise for many but the situation in Makkah  at the time of the Prophet (SAW) was far worse than any confrontation  the EDL may have had with the Prophet (SAW) and the his companions in  Makkah. The Prophet (SAW) had to deal with the extremely hostile  "Quraysh Defence League" (QDL) which undertook a ruthless propaganda  campaign against the Prophet (SAW), his message and the believers. The  situation today in the UK is not at all similar to how it was in Makkah.  However there are elements within the society who seem to be inspired  by the QDL. One such group is the English Defence League which appears  to have taken the hatred of Islam as the core of its ideology. Others  include new-atheist and some evangelical groups.
         
      No matter how persistent the QDL was, it failed to distract and  derail the mission of the believers. On the contrary, they went into  oblivion. But today, even the slightest appearance or propaganda from the EDL seems to really distract us.  This is not surprising at all as the early believers followed the  guidance that was sent by Allah (SWT) to deal with the situation.  Whereas we have no clue whatsoever whether that guidance even exists let  alone how we can apply that guidance. Then we look for inspiration  elsewhere like any other community would do. This is when we need stop  and think.
         
      Surah Al-Muzzammil is an early Makkan surah revealed to the Prophet  (SAW) to give strength to his mission. One of the main aspects of this  surah is how to deal with hostile elements within the society.
       
      "You  [Prophet], enfolded in your cloak! Stay up throughout the night, all  but a small part of it, half, or a little less, or a little more; recite  the Qur'an slowly and distinctly: We shall send a momentous message  down to you. Night prayer makes a deeper impression and sharpens words––  you are kept busy for long periods of the day–– so celebrate the name  of your Lord and devote yourself wholeheartedly to Him. He is Lord of the east and west, there is no god but Him, so take Him as your Protector,  patiently endure what they say, ignore them politely, and leave to Me  those who deny the truth and live in luxury. Bear with them for a little  while." [surah Al-Muzzammil 73:1-11]
         
      There is such deep meaning and guidance in this surah for  every Muslim society and individual on how to conduct themselves in the  face of opposition and hostility. The seminar coming up on Saturday by Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi is a must for every one of us living in this society.

Questions, I'm so glad  we can ask them even if it's not about the sura. Yes, how else are we to  learn from his wisdom and experience if we don't ask? The issues facing  Muslims in the West are so many and so confusing and I just love the  fact that he does not have an inferiority complex about Islam. It's  really sad to see psychologically defeated scholars start throwing away  tradition in the name of progress and fitting in. Sheikh Akram Nadwi  gives you the sense that the real life is in the hereafter so don't have  to get so tied up with the philosophies and controversies that  sometimes take away our attention from the real purpose. The onus is on  us, are we being pious?" - Aisha Barkatulla, Cambridge
