    Would you consider taking part in these forum projects?

    Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah.

    Dear brother and sisters,
    I've noticed quite a few threads/posts recently about lack of activity on the forum. Personally, I don't see it as being particularly different from previous times - with the exception of some well known (and very likeable, MaashaaAallah) members sadly no longer posting too often.

    There are a lot of serious things going on in the world concerning our ummah as we all know, things that really weigh on us heavily when we think about them, and things which really do deserve our attention, so when it comes to things like this, well... Nonetheless, we come on here looking to relax sometimes and just to interact with one another as Muslims and to be part of an online Muslim community.

    I think I mentioned before that I'm not normally too enthusiastic about competitions (as I'm sure many others on here aren't), but if it makes things slightly more interesting for us brothers and sisters who visit the forum... Below are a few ideas for competitions/challenges, etc. If you think you might want to take part in one/some of these, vote on the poll and maybe we can go ahead with them if there are enough of us interested, inshaaAllah.

    :jkk:


    Hadith-based Artwork
    Entrants submit a piece of artwork done by hand or digitally based on a Hadith of their choice. (Most votes wins). Prize money goes towards gift or sadaqah.

    Short Story Writing Challenge
    A short story, either based on reality, or fictional, but something that will help draw our attention to a beneficial / serious issue which you feel strongly about. (Most votes wins). Prize money goes towards gift or sadaqah.

    Nasheed Competition (not sure about this one)
    Send your own rendition of someone's Nasheed, or your own. (Most votes wins). (Brothers only)

    Poetry League (Islamic/Positive)
    A Long running poetry competition. League format with points earned based on votes, with top 4 league leaders involved in a 4-way playoff at the end. (1st place Vs 4th. 2nd Vs 3rd). Prize money goes towards gift or sadaqah

    UF Make Us Smile/Laugh Championship

    For anyone and everyone. Register yourself as an entrant, then be drawn against another member. To progress to next round, tell us a clean, halaal joke/or make a humourous comment. If yours is appreciated more than your opponent by the competition judges, you'll move onto the next round to be drawn against next opponent. No prize money. Just the title of being Champion funny man/woman. :|

    Qiraa'ah Competition
    Send us your recitation and tell us why you chose the Aayaat you chose to recite. For prize money to use for gifting someone or to give in sadaqah. Most votes wins.


    Feel free to suggest other ideas, too, inshaa'aAllah.

      Just to clarify, for some of them you would be anonymous, so there's no need to worry on that front.

        Here is my short story:

        There once was a boy that transferred to a new school. He was a nice and quiet person. One day one of his classmates decided to be a bully and physically harass him. The bully pushed the boy to the ground, and right before he tried to kick his victim, the rest of the class got up and beat the crap out of the bully.

        The moral of the story is, if people weren't silent and act, there would be less suffering for everyone.

                              Voted! I like the making laugh competition but I feel like it'd be extremely hard over text since comedy usually requires movement, facial expressions, tone of voice, etc. Also it's not a good way to lighten things up because mixing and humor usually don't end very well.

                              Also women shouldn't end their voices with regards to qira'ah unles it's a female I guess.

                              Great ideas none the less
