ALHAMDULILLAHWe are seeing our sixth issue being published today. It has been a journey of ups and downs but Allah has helped us go forward. We believe the slow pace at which we may seem to be progressing is beneficial as Allah is helping us build a strong foundation In sha Allah – may He guide us and accept it from us.
We started Muslim Ink with a lot of passion for da’wah. The magazine was a dream project that we felt would immensely benefit the ummah. After a lot of struggles, we came to a conclusion as to how our publication should be.
Then our idea of content evolved or, let’s say, strengthened. We wanted to publish beneficial and positive content for Muslims. As new members joined our team, the idea developed into publishing authoritative Islamic content because in today’s world of unchecked information floating around social media, the value of reliable content cannot be stressed enough.
This was an important step.
In today’s confusing times where there is extremism on the one hand and ignorance on the other, it is all the more important to call people to knowledge and do our duty of commanding the good and forbidding the evil.
We have strengthened our resolve to propagate Islam in accordance with the Qur’an, Sunnah and the way of the Companions. As numerous texts in the Qur’an and Sunnah tell us, the success of the Muslim ummah lies in our adherence to the pure religion – the religion that Allah is pleased with, which the Prophet ﷺ taught and the community of the Companions, as an example for the ummah, implemented.
This is our only way for success. Any other deviant path is bound for failure, and we must clearly say it as such.
