While Islam was first preached centuries and centuries ago orally, there has been a technological-revolution occurring within the last few decades. The message of Islam came for mankind, and the use of technology has made it easier for the masses to learn about it through different forms of media. The advancements in technology has provided an outlet for Islam to be shared in innovative and creative ways in order for people on the global-level to see and learn about it within the comfort of their own homes, on their cell-phones, their tablets, and computers.
Islam is a way of life that is so dynamic that it complements the current technological-revolution that is occurring on a global-scale. This system is so cutting-edge that Islam is a way of life that works with the demands of individuals and communities. In the time of the prophet Muhammad Islam changed a whole society and then the global-community as a whole. In a time in which people were seeking hope, help, and confidence Islam provided practical and rational teachings. This system has continuously shown its durability and reliability within the lives of Muslims everywhere. Islam became the voice that spoke for those that were silenced, rejected, and ignored in their societies. Islam brought to people a lifestyle that was unmatched compared to what was in place. This way of life is currently undergoing a technological-revolution accessible to all people in the click of a mouse or the touch of a screen.
Also, these current advancements in technology have created a global-platform for Islam to exist for all to experience individually and collectively. In seeing that Islam is a way of life that works independently without the need of anyone or anything e it is vital to see how technology can convey the message of Islam. The prophet Muhammad advised the people to convey the message of Islam even if it was one verse of the Qur’an or his example. The application of this command has become an easy task due to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and other platforms via new media. Also, many scholars and people of knowledge are using the internet in giving lectures to reach more individuals globally. Also, this revolution in technology has introduced individuals with technologically-savvy projects via the web to illustrate the beauty and simplicity of Islam. These advancements in technology should be seen as a powerful way in conveying Islam.
Nevertheless, it is important for Muslims to engage the world within the technological-advancing world we are living in currently. The voices of Muslims from all around the world can share Islam with others. This is a call for action and a call to present what the prophet Muhammad presented. Interestingly, schools and universities are utilizing the web and technological tools for projects and presentations. It is becoming increasingly easier to work and share documents with people. Writers and poets have used blogs, websites, and videos to share their writings so others can experience them. This revolution is constantly in need of creative minds to share their knowledge of Islam. It can be as simple as taking a picture of a mother and son talking or a person helping their neighbor. Islam should never be a burden for people. It should be easy and simple. The beauty of Islam can include a person reciting a verse of the Qur’an by sign-language. It can be as simple as showing the importance of caring for animals. Islam has provided a plethora of ways to convey the message, and there are many things to convey about the religion. Our minds shouldn't be stuck on one form of media and one idea when there are several to pick and choose from in this effort. This is a civic and digital-engagement engaging all people from all over the world. This revolution cannot be a revolution without you. Share the beauty of Islam.
Lastly, it is important to understand that this technological effort should be done in a way that engages everyone. Islam came to all of mankind and should be shown its beauty by all people from every corner of the world. This revolution will only occur with the continuous efforts made by the global-community at large. This is a call for action in doing our civic-duty to Islam. The religion of Islam is beautiful and simplistic, so engage the world with your creativity.
