A recent article in the Voice of the Cape:

VOC Press Release

"Muslim organizations are invited to enlist themselves on a new web portal designed to provide an Islamic lifestyle guide for all Muslims living or travelling in the Cape. The online initiative is the brainchild of Boorhaanol Publishing, which prints the annual "Companion", a book that provides information on Muslim services and organizations. According to the publishing house's Nuhaa Dramat, the online directory www.livingislam.co.za will be "a guide to the vibrancy of Islam".

"The directory will be the online and more interactive version of the ever popular Companion. Whether it is the location of a mosque, the convenience of your nearest halaal take-away, a list of welfare organizations, educational institutions, all sorts of service organizations or simply learning about our way of life, this is where you will find it," she said.

Dramat said one of the advantages of this website is that the organization will be able to update their own details such as audios and videos, as well as photos from mobile phones. In the future, organizations will be able to publish an event calendar, enabling users to monitor the events of particular organizations. Soon, this information will be linked to the mobile phone, extending the accessibility of the information to the community at large. The service is free and all Muslims are encouraged to list their organizations on the website.

"We ask that people register as a member on the site. This will allow the person all sorts of functionalities like contributing articles, participating in forums, asking questions, comments and being part of our growing community. This will allow your organization a myriad of benefits including, LI email address, exposing your contact details, history, news, activities, facilities, map routing, uploading your pictures, videos, audios and much more," she explained.

"It is like having your own mini website and with our entry management console you can update your information, with no programming skills. This service is offered to the Muslim community and non-Muslims offering services to Muslims free of charge to promote a more enlightened and informed community - Insha-Allah."
