    Hope your all well.

    And in the best of health and emaan.

    I'm sorry if this all seems so sudden. After much thought and deliberation, I have come to a major decision. I shall be retiring my position as forum administrator. I will be handing the forum over to @ibn-Adam who I'm sure will take care of it well .

    It's been a great honour and has been very fulfilling to have been the owner for the past 2 years, and I have made a number of developments to IB that I am very proud of. However, being the owner of a forum is no small task. Will need to focus more time on my other ventures, and I feel that the time has now come for me to move on.

    Don't worry I will come on here time to time, to help out if needed (staff) and also share beneficial posts. So it's not like a leaving thread.

    I enjoyed my 2 years here no doubt. Fun times, stressful times, happy times and enjoyable times .

    I love you all for the sake of Allah. I would take time to write about each member, but that would take ages . Every one who is reading each letter now, I recognize you and appreciate you. Would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for making it just that bit more amazing.

    I definitely don't want to see this forum die, or have problems. If so I shall help out and come to the rescue! But I'm sure the new owner will be able to tackle them .

    Forgive me if I have ever been harsh with you or blunt and any hurt feelings to anyone. Also to those whom I infracted/banned, remember I only had the betterment of the forum in mind.

    May Allah accept all my efforts in order to make forum better. May Allah accept efforts of all the moderators across 10 years for dedicating time here.

    Ameen.

    That comes as a surprise, and without any doubt, not the happiest news that we'd like to hear.

    I would like to say a big thank you for your strong commitment and cool disposition that you displayed on the forum, for only a person with strong character can do this.

    You've been a great asset to the IB forums while being inter-active with members and the forum itself. I would like to thank you on behalf of all members,.

    Also, may Allah swt accept your duas and grant you barakah in this life and akhirah, ameen.

    I think you couldn't have handed it to anyone better. May Allah reward you all for your efforts and may allah make this forum a beneficial place for all.

    Bro Farhan I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision to make, but don't worry inshallah it will be well taken care of We all can put in the effort to improve it and keep it going strong inshallah.

    Walaikumasalaam brother Farhan,

    As our brothers & sisters have commented it has come as a shock, surprise and with much sadness.

    You're a very valued member on this forum and you've always been so positive both in your attitude and bringing a positive change to the forum.

    I hope we continue to see your contribution and posts on this forum.

    Jazahka Allah for dedicating your time & energy on this forum.

    May Allah swt reward you in abundance Ameen.

    Re: Forum under New Ownership

    Things change and we need to evolve.

    It is important to have the courage to implement the changes required. It is often the hardest thing to accomplish as it would mean letting go of something dear.

    We tend to 'hoard' things, never wanting to lose anything we have acquired or gained throughout our lives. So, letting go of the 'baby' you have tried so hard to reshape will be emotionally taxing.

    I am sure the members will take care of this place (with the help of the mods...

    In the meantime, may Allah give you success in your other endeavours.

    Don't worry brothers and sisters, farhan is not leaving the forum. He is just transferring the ownership.

    The Forum will now be owned by a team of staff, most of whom were previously Super Mods and Admins here.

    Everything will remain the same . There will only be improvements and whatever is in the best interests of the forum.
