I’m new here but I still hope members here will support this idea in order to significantly boost activity on this forum.
IMO more people would frequent this forum - like they do Forum.com which has at least 100 users at any one time if I’m not mistaken- had more members made a concerted effort to reply to more threads in the spirit of Islamic unity. I really think the solution is simply to start posting more to get the ball of discussions ‘rolling’.
Here are some steps for a start insha Allah. I’m hoping others will modify/contribute to the list. Do let me know if these maybe problematic in anyway.
- 1. Sign up as an unofficial ‘active’ member meaning you will dedicate an 1hr, 30min, 10min or whatever you can schedule in on a daily basis for the purpose of helping others exclusively.
- 2. Always make the intention before posting to please Allah SWT so that if others appreciate your help or not it has no effect on one’s enthusiasm either way.
- 3. Strive to build a stronger sense of community amongst ourselves by being kind and returning favors and going the extra mile whenever we can. Not only is this a reward in itself, it will also attract others who, after seeing how ‘tight’ members are here, will want to join in and be a part of the ‘club’.
- 4. Never leave a thread without zero replies. Out of consideration for the thread starter and so others are not discouraged from starting threads because they probably will be if OPs are being ignored/neglected.
So are we up to it? Let’s all sign up here to commit to 10, 15, 30 etc. minutes daily to help each other out and help this site surpass its potential. Just sign up even if you don’t think you can commit and let it be a spiritual exercise of tawakkul (reliance on Allah SWT). Who knows maybe by our small but sincere efforts we could triple or quadruple the activity on this site!
Signing up format
No.-UserName-Days-Amount of time (other than the time you normally spend browsing and replying)
Feel free to let me know what you guys think, moderators and everyone else too.
Thanks for your time. Please seize the moment and signup now. May Allah SWT give us hope always. Ameen.
Wassalaamu alaykum WR ALLAH WB
