If you are a Muslim please continue reading, if not then exit this page because it is only for Muslims from all over the world.
You guys have surely seen and used the vBulletin Forums. We all know that it is the traditional non-Muslim forum for more than 90% of the forums used on the global net.
Most, if not all of the Arabic Forums are using this company, and they depend on it in about everything. But we didn’t ask our selves before, why isn’t there an advanced forum that even non-Muslim people would depend on?
Don’t you see that non-Muslims are into about every section in technology?
They did computers that we use
They did the internet that we use
They did the forum that we use
They did and did and did…. But what did we do so that they would use from us on global basis? I guess nothing?
Maybe few minor things, but no majors….
So what I have been thinking of lately, is why don’t we start to change the whole this.
Why don’t we start by doing things that every body would desperately need like the vBulletin that many need??
We all know that in the Past the west was depending on the Arab and Muslims in every kind of things in life, then it suddenly changed starting from 1921, but why?
I guess that my duty as a Muslim is to change all this, well at least work to change this.
In this project I would like to introduce my self and my plan…
My name is Firas S Assaad, I am Muslim, I am about 17 years old, and been a programmer for more than 5 years. I have skills in Visual Basic 6, ASP Classic, and HTML, in addition to general skills in general computers. I have many previous developing projects either Windows or Web. Check my profile on this links to know more about my previous work.

My plan is, to build a team of Designers, Programmers, Testers, and others.
This team would together under the name of Islam, build the first Global and the most Advanced Forum that all Muslims and non-Muslims would depend on, and would help in distributing Islam and help in showing the good of Islam.
Currently I am in middle of final exams in the final year, and then I will be traveling to USA for university, from there I could lead the team or somebody else would, depending on who would be chosen for managment, to create the forum.
What I need for the team is:
1. ASP Classic Programmer, or ASP.Net and I prefer ASP Classic because I only know this language plus I believe that it’s much powerful than .Net
2. Banner Designer for Ads and for the forum
3. Logo Designer for the forum and for the team
4. Flash Logos and Demos about the site
5. Testers to test the site for errors
6. Site Designers
7. A programmer can convert a MySQL Database to a MS Access and MS SQL Server, so that we can use it to give to people who want to upgrade to our forum and never loose the previous posts and information.
8. People would collect ideas and features to be inserted and programmed into the forum.
9. Others we need, in the future inshalla.
About programming, I have programmed a forum last year and tested it on my own, I have done many researches on many deferent things to collect and make the best out of it. The forum I did is on this link [url removed, login to view]
The forum is in about the same level of vBulletin plus it has some features that is better, like that speed, and I believe if I did it on my own while I am still in school, then we would do better than any other if we worked as a team.
I prefer that in designing branches would be ditrubetued on more than one person, so that we would have more people on the team, and none of us would be flooded and under pressure of work.
I have been, in the past year, collecting ideas and features to put in the forum, and especially features that members wish to see and use that not already supported by vBulletin or any other typical forums.
I have talked, seen, thought of many ideas, all those ideas are collected in Word documents which you can see after joining the team.
About the Price,
I am planning that at the begging it would be free to all, either for an individual or company or group, so that our team would gain popularity and reputation so that many would trust us and plan to upgrade to our forum.
In the future it would be with license and the money that we get would be used from it, a certain amount that we will discuss later, for charity to keep Allah’s blessing on us, and some for buying books to learn new technologies and stuff to improve the forum, and some to buy equipments to help in improving, and some to be able to arrange meetings on offline basis to discuss issues or ideas and know each others more and make the relationship stronger between us.
And to show that we are not working for money, but we are working for Islam.
Please if you are a Muslim and interested please bid, and show me on PM your previous work, even if it was a little but I don’t want to see only work but also passion for job. Even if you are not sure to stay for a long time, I would like to know more about you.
Please note that I may not respond quickly because as I mentioned earlier I am in middle of final exams, and will finish at about 21/6.
Remember, this inshalla would let you answer when Allah in the Day of Judgment would ask you “What did you do with the skills and education I gave you for Islam?”
Best Regards for all
