By Shahid Badruddin, Bengaluru, India.

The Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community on the Internet and social media

A collection of Resources available on the Internet that is useful to an Ahmadi Muslim.

Day to day the Internet grows to be a bigger part of our lives. We access it at our homes, offices and even while on the move on mobile devices. A person without the knowledge on how to use the Internet is considered an illiterate in this age.

A vast number of Ahmadi Muslims are unaware of the resources currently available for making use either for Tarbiyath or for Tabligue. I thought it would be helpful to put together all available websites along with little descriptions to help everyone quickly make use of these sites.

Below is a list of all Official and Unofficial Websites with tons of information in text, images, audio and video formats. I pray that these may help you in one way or another to gain more knowledge on Islam and Ahmadiyyat and that it may be useful for you in helping others in researching Islam and Ahmadiyyat during Tabligue.

Importance of Communication:
Communication is a very important part of life and the more we communicate within the community the more we are informed about the Issues, the successes and the news that are happening around us. And as we Ahmadis grow as a Worldwide community there is a greater need for good communication and to be well informed.

Need to Increase our Presence:
We need to increase our presence on the Internet; we need to be more vocal and voice our concerns at various forums and sites and as much as possible introduce our Jamaat and provide links to our sites whenever we see an opportunity.

Many of the recent converts to Islam Ahmadiyya were first introduced to the Jamaat via the Internet. By watching some video on YouTube, by reading some article by some News Website, by comments and following links provided there by someone, messages on Twitter and other Forums, etc.

Media plays a very vital part of society and we need to make our presence on all forms of media to reach their vast number of readers and viewers. Whenever a news report/article on Islam Ahmadiyya is put on the Internet we must make use of the opportunity by putting our comments with useful links and at times we may have to remove misconceptions and allegations put by anti-Ahmadiyya forces. This is nothing but the “Jihad of the Pen”.

We as Ahmadis must first develop interests to contribute towards the Internet. We must make use of every opportunity that we could find and leave a mark, a message from Islam Ahmadiyya or a link to our Official Sites.

If you have the knowhow, if you have a skill to enhance the already existing system, you must start contributing for it.

The Right use of the Internet:
There are many risks and pitfalls for an Ahmadi Muslim while using the Internet. Please watch these IMPORTANT Speeches and discussions by Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah Sb, Naib Amir USA who is also the Chairman of The Alislam Team and MTA USA:

To upload your own videos and to put comments on other’s videos you must have an account i.e. a channel of your own. This can be done for free by registering as a new user.

Uploading Videos:
Once you have created a channel you can upload any number of videos. Suppose you have a video of a speech at a Jalsa you can upload it, but remember to give a short Title, a Description message and tag words which will help in searching the video for other viewers.

Sharing a video:
If you like a video and want it to be watched by others simply copy the link in the URL and paste it in an email OR a Chat window Or on Twitter, etc and send it. The receiver needs to just click on the link or copy it in his browser to watch it.

Members of the Jamaat around the world have created good channels for Tabligue and Tarbiyath with a very large number of videos.

You can view the list of videos available on a channel such as “AlislamKhutbaArchive” like using the below link: www.youtube.com/AlislamKhutbaArchive

To make our presence strong, more and more of us must create channels and upload good videos related to our Community. We can download videos from other channels and upload them in our channels.

How to build a Network on twitter ?

Once you have become a member of twitter:
– Just search for people using words like “Ahmadiyya” Or “Ahmadis” OR “Qadian”. Click the Follow button for the person you want to follow.
– Invite people who are in the contacts list of your email accounts.
– Invite people by their email ids (who may or may not be twitter users) to follow you. It will send them an email inviting them to follow you. If they have twitter account they will login and follow you and if they don’t they will have to sign up one and follow you. 

What messages to send ?
You can send messages of up to 140 characters. You can send news, information about some programs, some new videos or articles, etc. Even the links to other sites can be pasted here link articles at alislam.org Or youtube videos, etc.

Twitter is very useful to keep updated on a lot of news about anything, especially Jamaat.

ReTweet: Messages sent by others can be resent to those who are following you by just clicking the RETWEET button below the message.

Twitter Campaigns by Jamaat

As a Tabligue program, once in a while members of the Jamaat decide to have a Twitter Campaign i.e. to TREND a word or phrase in the “Top 10” phrases. This trend can be country based Or Worldwide based.

To conduct a successful Trend a large number of members must Tweet and Re-Tweet a lot of messages containing the word Or Phrase at the same period of time.

When the word or phrase appears in the top 10 trends people from the public i.e. other Twitter users (non-Ahmadi) will see it and read all our messages, visit the links we provide, read our literature and watch our videos, etc. This is a very effective method of Tabligue as it can take our messages to a very large number of people easily and safely.

Few main points we must note to make a campaign successful are:

– Build a large number of Followership, we need to follow many people and must try to make a lot of Ahmadis and non Ahmadis follow us. If we send interesting and useful messages many people will follow us.

– Retweeting the messages sent by others.

– Prepare messages before hand and schedule them to be sent.

Tweetdeck.com is a very useful website which can be used along with your Twitter accounts. It helps in managing your multiple accounts and messages. Most importantly it helps in SCHEDULING your messages. i.e. if there is a campaign on a given date and time you can create messages before the time and make them be sent at that time automatically. This helps a lot in campaigns.

FACEBOOK !!                                                     

Many have doubts on Facebook’s use, so here is the Official Policy from the Jamaat from alislam.org

FaceBook Policy at alislam.org: http://www.alislam.org/egazette/faq/facebook-policy/

Page updated: December 22nd, 2011
The following policy has been approved by Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V(aba) for the members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:

1.Individual Jama’at members are not permitted to create facebook pages on behalf of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. All pages created by individuals representing “Ahmadiyya” or “Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani (a.s.) ” or “The Promised Messiah (a.s.)” or “Mirza Masroor Ahmad” or “Khalifatul Masih” etc. should be closed immediately.

2.The only official Ahmadiyya Muslim Community facebook page is via Alislam platform at  http://www.facebook.com/AhmadiyyaMuslim

3.The practice of making and maintaining individual facebook pages/accounts is not permitted. (Ref: Concluding address Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V, Jalsa Salana Germany 2011, June 26th 2011).

4.Any questions write to chairman Al Islam at nasim.rehmatullah@ahmadiyya.us

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. If members are not allowed to create individual Facebook pages/accounts, then why is there an AhmadiyyaMuslim Facebook page?
A. The AhmadiyyaMuslim page has been created for multiple reasons: (1) to officially counter anti-Ahmadiyya and other defamatory propaganda; and (2) to present the true and accurate teachings of Islam. A Facebook account is not required to access the AhmadiyyaMuslim page. Anyone can visit the page to view latest updates at http://www.facebook.com/AhmadiyyaMuslim

Q. Does the prohibition against individual and personal Facebook accounts extend to other social media websites?
A. It depends. Facebook is primarily designed to encourage the disclosure and sharing of intimate personal information. Therefore, this prohibition would extend to all similar websites (MySpace, hi5, google+ etc.). This prohibition does not apply to social media websites that have a different focus – such as Twitter or LinkedIn. Use your honest judgment or ask.

Furthermore, all members should exercise caution when using any non-prohibited social media website to ensure that safety, security, privacy and modesty are preserved. Parents are especially encouraged to educate their children about appropriate usage.

Q. Does this prohibition against individual Facebook accounts extend to business/education Facebook accounts, as well?
A. No. The design and purpose of Facebook Business/Education accounts is different than individual accounts and do not fall into the scope of this directive. Cautious use is advised.

Q. Can I maintain a personal Facebook account if I do so carefully for personal or tabligh use?
A. In total, there is more harm than good in websites such as Facebook with a high potential for misuse or abuse even in personal or tabligh use. Therefore, this prohibition has been instituted for the sake of protecting the membership at large.

Q. How can Facebook account be deleted?
A. If you check on this link, it will guide you on how to delete the account: http://www.facebook.com/help/search/?q=how+do+i+delete+my+account

Some Tips on using the Internet:

1) Language translator: translate.google.com
If you want to read something like an entire website OR just some text, which is in some other language like Urdu OR Arabic in your language like Hindi, Kannada OR Tamil. A very simple way is to use the tool provided by Google. Just copy the text OR Website address into the box select the From and To languages.

2) Locate Ahmadiyya Mosques: maps.google.com  and   wikimapia.org
Suppose you have gone to a new place and want to locate a Mosque of our community. Go to maps.google.com put the keywords like “Ahmadiyya Mosque Bangalore”

Not all of our Mosques and missions are mapped on these sites so we need to add them there. This would be very helpful for a lot of people both Ahmadis and non Ahmadis who want to visit our Mosques or Mission Houses.

3) View Blocked Sites of Jamaat:
Some countries have blocked few of our websites such as http://www.alislam.org

To still view the sites, one suggestion is to add an “s” after http. So the above becomes https://www.alislam.org

https stands for “Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure”. Secure sites with https  are those sites where web address and other information travels in encrypted form. Filters do not identify these addresses. So they are normally not effected by any such blocking action

Another workaround is by appending “.nyud.net” at the end i.e. use www.alislam.org.nyud.net

4) Downloading Videos:
We can easily download any videos running on any site on the browser to our hard disk. All you need to do is download and install the FREE version of Real Player from the link : http://in.real.com/?mode=rp

After the installation when you are watching a video say on youtube, on moving the mouse over the video you will see this image  appear. Just click it and it will save the video in a folder called “RealPlayer Downloads” in your Videos Folder.

5) Creating Videos:
The simplest tool to use for creating videos of your own is the “Windows Movie Maker”, which comes with your Windows Operating System, if not you can download it for free from: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/movie-maker-get-started.

This application helps in cutting, combining and editing videos, adding sounds and slides and saving in different Qualities. Very useful.

6) Converting formats:
Video and Audio files come in different file formats and not all Players and devices can read all formats. In this case you may want to convert from one format to another.

There are many Free and paid applications on the net. A very powerful application is Xilisoft Video Converter which can convert from Any format to Any format !!

Mobile Applications from Alislam:  www.alislam.org/apps

Alislam team has a variety of applications for mobile devices. Download these free apps for your mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android and Windows Phone 7. Search the Keyword: “Ahmadiyya” in the relevant App Store or Marketplace to find all of the applications made by Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

WallPapers for Computers and Mobile Devices

Few good wallpapers for devices and Computers have been designed by Alislam Team, let us use them instead of what we currently have on our devices.

You can download the specific one for your device at this link: http://www.alislam.org/wallpapers/

Finally I would like to say (type) that it is the Duty of EVERY Muslim especially Ahmadis to spread the Message of Allah. The Holy Prophet(saw) used to invite people of all races, poor and rich to the right path of Allah, he used the limited technologies that were available to him at that point of time, scribes used to write down his letters and messengers used to ride on horse backs to reach as far as Rome, Egypt and Persia and invite emperors and their people to understand the Truth.

The Promised Messiah(as) himself wrote about 90 books and thousands of letters by hand in the defense and truthfulness of Islam. He destroyed falsehood, broke the Cross and brought Glory back to Islam only by the Jihad of the Pen, sitting in a small hamlet Qadian.

Just imagine what we can do with all the resources, skills and potential we have in our hands. IMAGINE.

Prayers requested for every individual who have selflessly put in so much of efforts behind each of the above mentioned resources only for the sake of Allah and his Jamaat’s progress.

Prayers requested for me as well.

Shahid Badruddin, Bangalore, India.

    Peace and mercy of Allah be on you……Some people think that religion deprives them of their freedom and place restrictions on them. But Allah the Exalted has said: “…….and (He) has laid no hardship upon you in religion…….” [Holy Quran ch 22:v79].

    Thus the religious laws of Islam are given to save humanity from all types of hardships and calamities and to bring mercy and blessings for them. Being creation of God if one does not follow His commandment he will be misled by Satan to destruction.

    There are things, which are considered trivial in the beginning, but results are devastating. A true believer should never consider a commandment as small.

    These days, drifting away from religion, people’s criteria for good and bad has changed. For example, on the name of freedom and fashion, nudity among men and women is becoming common. The sign of being progressive is to practice shamelessness openly. The thing called modesty does not remain.

    As the result, questions about issues of modesty and modest dress may arise in the minds of growing Ahmadi boys and girls too, who live in such societies. They must remember that we, as Muslim, must follow the teaching of Islam and Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) about modesty and covering. Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) explained Islamic teaching for us. He said modesty is the part of faith.
