The Idea

Active Islam's primary goal is to provide service to all Muslims reminding them of events such as prayer times, holidays, Ramadhan and other important dates in the muslim calender. In return Muslims making use of the service would pay a modest amount each month. All proceeds are re-invested back into the Muslim community, making Active Islam eventually a key contributor to the Muslim population. ActiveIslam will be registered with the Charity Commission and operate as a Charity under the UK Laws.

Active Islam takes the latest wireless, wireline and voice technology and implements it into an application required for todays modern Muslims living in the western world. In the absence of the call of prayer from the minaret of a mosque and the general fragmentation of the culture, an electronic reminder of these events keeps Muslims informed at all times wherever they are. This aids Muslims to keep on time and up with critical events in today's hectic world. The secondary and equally important goal is to provide much needed investment into the Muslim community.

Finally, Islam has suffered a great deal of bad press in recent years. Active Islam's third goal is to portray a positive and modern image of the religion.

How It Works

Muslims interested in the service would go to the ActiveIslam web site and subscribe from a list of alerts available to them. For examples, they can choose to be notified of the Lunch time and evening prayers only. Users would then decide on a method of delivery suitable to them, email, mobile phone, pager, voice, fax etc.. Given the time zone and more accurately the subscribers lateral and horizontal location, a message is delivered to them via the channel of their choice at the appropriate time.

Upon signing up for the service, the user would provide credit card details that will be used to deduct the monthly donation. The amount has a minimum value but requires the subscriber to enter an amount they feel comfortable with.

Proceeds are then distributed to muslim organizations, mosques etc. in the country of subscription. Suggestions are made by subscribers and cash distributed to the list of carefully chosen parties. (the mechanics/guidelines of choosing parties for donation is explained in more detail later.)

All of Active Islam's financial information will be published to members of the service.
