Writers and Speakers Panel

The Community on Friday is driven by the thoughts and ideas of tens of individuals from across the globe who wish o participate in this initiative. Writers, whether panellists or guest writers are free to choose from a variety of topics within the sphere of society, culture and religion. Reaching out to our Khoja Shi’a audience is an important objective of the forum and hence the need to be relevant to local and global issues at hand. If you wish to become part of this internal reform and Tabligh project, please write to: moderator@communityonfriday.net

The smooth running of this forum relies heavily on the dedication, commitment and will of individuals who volunteer their time and energy to deliver various messages.  The Community on Friday covers the entire range of ‘syllabus’ from faith matters to society, to economics, to ethics and morality, and so on.  Each individual panellist contributes in one way or another, drawing from their life experiences and learning, as well as interaction with the broader society, in compiling their thoughts in an understandable manner, ready for the weekly consumption of readers and viewers.

May Allah (SWT) reward the team amply, for their sacrifice, devotion and dedication to this forum, Aameen.
