New E-Book for all

Alhamdulillah, has released an eBook entitled Mission: Ramadan. It basically comprises of 30 bloggers each writing on one theme, this year being Qur’an, for the month of Ramadan. Go ahead and click the cover image to view the eBook!

In the book itself, there are two articles written by MYM staff writers – Day 2 has been written by Jawaad Ahmad Khan (personal website) and Day 28 by Ibn Siddique (also published on MYM).

Behind The Scenes

This project was launched a few days before Ramadan on a conference call organized by Productive Muslim. As he writes in the introduction of the book:

“I remember having such high expectations of our online meeting, especially with 15 bloggers registering for the meeting when first announced, but SubhanaAllah, only 4 people turned up…”

The meeting was held at 4pm, so it was perhaps a time that most people couldn’t make it (70 excuses for your brother, right?). The four participants included Jawaad, ProductiveMuslim, Sr. Hanan, and me. We began discussing different ideas, and we thought it’d be really cool to have a blogger per day write on a post dealing with the Qur’an, as the Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an.

At the time, I was thinking of Mercy Mission, a project of Shaykh Tawfique Chowdhury, and I thought it’d be a cool idea to have ‘Mission’ somewhere in the title. We tried different names out, and Mission: Ramadan seemed to be the most apt as we could easily have several missions throughout the year. After the meeting, everybody got to work; Jawaad made a quick logo for the project, ProductiveMuslim made an email address and description, and all of us helped to market the event via several emails for submissions and sponsors.

Alhamdulillah, it came out to be an awesome project and here it is today! Please do make sure to check out the eBook and to pray that this project continues to be successful…
