On 21 November 2020, the Al Islam website team, who run the official website of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, were fortunate to have a virtual mulaqat with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V, may Allah be his Helper.
The mulaqat commenced with the recitation of the Holy Quran, after which the team had the opportunity to give a presentation and discuss with Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa updates on a new project.
During the mulaqat, the Al Islam team had the opportunity to seek guidance and direction from Huzooraa on an array of matters. They also had the opportunity to present a new project – a new website dedicated to the Holy Quran with a search engine. They showed Huzooraa the current plan of the new project and live demonstrations. The details of the project, the base of the new vision for the project as well as its technical foundation was also presented.
Explaining the workflow, the department stated that they formed teams and areas of the project were assigned based on experience and interest. In this way, they said that they were working much faster and in a diligent manner.
Huzooraa instructed that the new website should be a resource for both Muslims and non-Muslims.
Following this, new features and updates of the website were presented before Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa. One new feature shown, which is available now on the Al Islam website, was the “Companions of the Holy Prophetsa” section, where the team has compiled and collected the accounts of the Badri Companionsra of the Holy Prophetsa – which Huzooraa has been presenting in his Friday Sermons – in article format.
In addition to this, an overview of the Al Islam mobile apps was presented, along with an update on audiobooks. English and Urdu audiobooks are available as podcasts across many platforms, including iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.
The team had the opportunity to ask Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa and seek direction from Huzooraa on various matters.
