What is LivingIslam?

Your guide to the vibrancy of Islam - whether it is the location of a mosque, the convenience of your nearest halaal take- away, a list of welfare organisations, or simply learning about our way of life. LivingIslam is an online islamic organisation directory and information portal.

 

Why LivingIslam?

As a muslim, have you had difficulty finding something ? Are you tired of trying to find local information ? With LivingIslam, your searching is over... well it is just starting, but one click and your there.

 

How is LivingIslam run?

LivingIslam is an online muslim community portal where people create and maintain their own Entries about their own organisation. Each entry is run by an Entry Manager who is responsible for the content on that mini-portal (website). The Entry Manager follows the LivingIslam guidelines with regards to maintaining and running the Entry. As a result, you receive top-class content and up-to-date information.

 

What is an Entry?

An Entry is a portal (website) created per organisation run by a person, who is known as an Entry Manager. An Entry Manager maintains an entry using the LivingIslam content management system. The entries range in commercial and non-profit categories, from mosques to welfare organisations, from eateries to financial institutions, from small clothing companies to IT companies.

 

Who qualifies to host an Entry?

Any Organisation that serves muslims or has muslim owners/part owners can participate. The LivingIslam administrator's reserve the right to approve or reject an entry application.

 

Does it cost to host an Entry?

No. This service is offered for free by LivingIslam for the sake of the Ummah.
