“We have appointed a law and a practice for every one of you. Had God willed, He would have made you a single community, but He wanted to test you regarding what has come to you. So, compete with each other in doing good. Every one of you will return to God, and He will inform you regarding the things about which you differed.” (Qur'an, 5:48)
Indeed we should compete for those things which are good, and avoid competing in those which are haram (such as worldly goods and materials). The Sahabah used to compete with each other in how much they could give AWAY, rather than how much they could keep and have. SubhanAllah!
Assalamu Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters!
In light of the above verses, BeeSpree Islamic Media have launched a voting competition for a $100USD prize that will be awarded to an Islamic forum of the “e-Ummah’s” choice.
Users will vote for what they feel is the best Islamic forum. We all know that forums shouldn’t be there simply for idle talk – they should be there for learning, teaching, da’wah and more. So, if you think your forum deserves it, vote for them!
This is how the ‘competition’ will work:
The different forums have been put as options in a poll which can be found at http://beespree.com/guestpoll.php
Forum members from all over the world and from different forums will vote on the forum they like the most. You’ll need to register to vote, but that takes less than 20 seconds (literally!). Also, users cannot create multiple accounts as the system works off an IP scheme.
The voting will last for 3 weeks. It will end on the 30th of August, 2007.
The forum that receives the most votes will win the $100USD for their server, maintenance, software costs etc!
All the forums are large, prominent forums so user numbers is not that big of an issue - rather, it'll come down to who's got the most active and forthcoming members!
Once voting is over, the money will be transferred to the head/administration of the winning forum, and announcements will be made from administrators that they have indeed received the money :) If they don’t want/need the money, then it will donated to a charity of the forum’s administrators choice.
So, visit http://beespree.com/guestpoll.php and vote for your forum!
InshaAllah we will also be doing other voting competitions like this in the future. For example, we may be asking users to decide which Muslim country we should send donations to (i.e. Palestine, Iraq, Chechnya, Bosnia etc…). Alhamdulillah we are in fledgling stages but things are going well. Check out www.beespree.com
for more on what we’re all about.
Jazakallah for reading this, and help out a deserving forum with their costs – we’re sure they’ll appreciate it!
