THE CONCEPT

From where? Where to? Why?

The establishment of Lifestyle is Islam, as it is today, has a lot to do with our quest of finding life's true purpose and asking those three questions. Where did we come from? Where are we heading towards? And last but not the least, why? When asked, finding the answers to those questions becomes cruicial because our own gorgeous selves don't let us settle down unless we truly know the answers to those questions. And these are not easy questions to seek answers to! You just cannot think about it for a while and solve the mystery within your head - it just doesn't work that way!

Long story short, we finally were able to find the answers to those questions by the grace of Allah, the one and only true God. The one who created everything form nothing and fashioned human being. We came to know that He sent us down to earth with a purpose. This life is not meaningless, nor is it merely natural. Everything that we are going through is part of Allah's plan and we are obidient slaves of our Most Loving Creator! He is there for anyone who seeks out for Him! He is there to guide you, just like He guided many more, when they were lost. It is His guidance that we need the most, undoubtedly.

And He found you lost, and guided you. - Quran 93:7

OUR STORY

About us

Teams at Lifestyle is Islam run various projects that together make for a central source of motivation for this initiative. Our operations are mostly team-driven and each of these teams has a theme of its own. The production team works on creating dawah (invitation to Islam) materials and distributing them among the mass people. The Charity team makes the most use of their time by raising donations for running operations within Lifestyle is Islam as well as for other charitable projects. This charity comes not only in the form of money, but extending helping hands towards those who need it. We share our resources among the teams to make the most use of everyone's capability.

We look towards a generation with zero ignorance about the Creator, and utilizing their full potential to secure a mesmerizing Hereafter!

OUR WORKS

Sending good ahead

Localization

We believe that the people who have the most rights over us are the people who are closest to us. This starts with our parents, and then goes on to our immediate family, extended family, neighbor, and fellow countrymen. Living in Bangladesh where our close ones are far more comfortable in Bangla than in English or Arabic, we take it as our obligation to translate the good English and Arabic materials into Bangla so that the most of our surrounding people can take full advantage of those materials that can very possibly change their lives forever.

Illustration

The various kinds of illustrated materials that we produce include kinetic typography, animated sketching, static sketching, image/video based reminders, and static typography etc. Living in a world constantly being surrounded by audio visual temptations, it has become obvious that our dawah materials should start being less boring and upgrade themselves to the next level to grab people's attention as much as the movies, cartoons and TV shows are doing. In our most humble of attempts to address this issue, we do not think enough is being done in this area.

Distribution

As much as today's communication and outreach are being dependent on internet based media, radio and television channels, we still think it is not always possible to make someone watch or read something by just passing a link to them virtually. In such cases that we are trying to point out, handing over some hard materials like printed books, DVDs, and flyers etc. can be far more effective. Keeping that in mind, we are working towards creating such well-thoughtout packages and individual items and also distribute them among the mass in the most effective way possible.

Advertising

We can translate, we can illustrate, we can create distributable materials, and we can do a lot of other really cool things, but none of those efforts will actually make any impact on our society and country if we make no effort to make those materials reach our target audience. And this is where advertising comes. We run online advertising campaigns on the most popular social media network Facebook on a regular basis whenever we publish something new for the people. Our official Facebook Page is solely dedicated to circulate our materials among the people of Bangladesh.

RANDOM REMIND ER

Random Reminder

Most of the projects in Lifestyle is Islam are based on a topic or a theme. However, there is also a need for being reminded randomly with little short blogs, sometimes with articles, videos or static banners etc. The random reminders are collectively produced under this project.

Crying need

The various kinds of illustrated materials that we produce include kinetic typography, animated sketching, static sketching, image/video based reminders, and static typography etc. Living in a world constantly being surrounded by audio visual temptations, it has become obvious that our dawah materials should start being less boring and upgrade themselves to the next level to grab people's attention as much as the movies, cartoons and TV shows are doing. In our most humble of attempts to address this issue, we do not think enough is being done in this area.

Playlists on YouTube Channel

In our time, there is such large number of videos with mountain high knowledge about our deen, but when it comes to organization of those videos, there is very little found. The videos and channels are scattered that makes it difficult to find when needed. On our YouTube channel, we are continuously creating playlists with useful videos so that the users can follow a series or lecturer in an organized fashion.

LOST ISLAMIC HISTORY

Lost Islamic History

The Lost Islamic History (LIH) project consists of a series of articles, which will eventually lead us to compile them all in a book that should depict the glorious past of Islam and Muslims.

Origin

The initiative did not actually originate at Lifestyle is Islam, but there has already been an initiative called Lost Islamic History for quite some time now. Since all of their articles are in English, we intend to translate them in Bangla as well as create other materials like rich media, short blogs, static banners, wallpapers, and videos etc. to reach the audience groups that simply don't want to read 'long and boring' articles.

Article: Science of Quran Preservation

This is the version of the original article titled "HOW DO WE KNOW THE QURAN IS UNCHANGED?", published on Power Pens authored by Ahmed Niaz Morshed localized for Bangla speaking people. The article covers a scientific analysis and methods used to determine the authenticity of anything from the history and relates that to the method of Quran preservation. The article is perfect for those who are honestly seeking to know if Quran is really intact since its revelation till today.

Article: Amazing Pre-Islamic Arabia

The article is the Bangla localized version of its original "WHAT WAS SPECIAL ABOUT PRE-ISLAMIC ARABIA?", published on Power Pens and translated by Ahmed Niaz Morshed. This one focuses on the amazing aspects of the pre-Islamic Arabia that might seem to be very ordinary if looked at without perspective. The author shows that the norms and practices in political, geographical and cultural level were perfect for the coming of a new Prophet with the message of Islam, suggesting that it was nothing but a divine plan of God.

OMAR SERIES

Omar Series

Omar (Arabic: عُمَرْ‎) or Farouk Omar (Persian: عمر فاروق‎‎) is a historical Arab television drama miniseries-serial that was produced and broadcast by MBC1 and directed by Hatem Ali. Co-produced by Qatar TV, the series is based on the life of Omar ibn Al-Khattab, the second Caliph of Islam, and depicts his life from 18 years old until the moments of his death. The series had to face large controversy due to its depiction of Omar, Abu Bakr, Uthman and Ali, the four Rashidun Caliphs, along with other characters, who some Muslims believe should not be depicted, much like the Prophet Mohammad.

The series consists of 30 episodes and was originally aired in the month of Ramadan since July 20, 2012. It was made at a cost of 200 million Saudi riyals and filmed in Morocco, primarily in the cities of Marakesh, Tangiers, El Jadida, Casablanca and Mohammedia. After the series was broadcast on MBC, it was dubbed into several languages for international broadcast and subtitled in English on YouTube; it received great support from many different scholarly bodies and people watching it. As the series depended largely on reliable historical established facts, the series did not face criticism in terms of its content, as past films faced.

Distribution of the MBC TV show

As much as today's communication and outreach are being dependent on internet based media, radio and television channels, we still think it is not always possible to make someone watch or read something by just passing a link to them virtually. In such cases that we are trying to point out, handing over some hard materials like printed books, DVDs, and flyers etc. can be far more effective. Keeping that in mind, we are working towards creating such well-thoughtout packages and individual items and also distribute them among the mass in the most effective way possible.

QCI

Quran Cover-to-cover Infographic

Translating the whole Quran into Bangla language and creating vivid visual static banners infographics to make the translated texts more memorable and striking in human minds. This is the first and core part of the development, but not the only one. Future development includes producing videos with background recitation along with visual infographic on the screen. In the same way, there will be rich media units developed for each Surah with automatic animated sliding.

Broadcasting QCI

Each individual unit of the QCI series are being posted on the Lifestyle is Islam Facebook page regularly as photo posts. Once one Surah is complete, a whole album is being uploaded to the page with a download link to the Infographic package for that Surah in the album description. The rich media units for each Surah will be published on the website so that the URL can be boosted using Facebook Ads. And the QCI video units will be distributed among the mass through DVDs.

BEGINN ING & END

Beginning & End

Bayyinah TV has introduced a new series with Omar Suleiman called The Beginning and the End, based on the works of Ibn Kathir. Scope includes a textual version of the series in Bangla. Beginning and End is a series based on the book بداية و نهاية‎,. Sheikh Omar Suleiman goes through this entire text weekly to bring stories and reminders to us.

Dual methods

The series will be translated into Bangla per episode - each translation will be in two formats. The first one will be a short one, more of a short blog format but not quite an article i.e. skipping some of the details and just presenting the core message of that episode in simple Bangla. And the second one will be a complete article dedicated to each episode, detailing everything that is covered in the original episode.

FINAL MIRACLE

Final Miracle

Quran is the Final Miracle sent to Earch by Allah, the Creator of everything, through Prophet Muhammad (p) for all of humanity. To instill faith into the heart of our souls, out of mercy, He authored the Quran as such that it not only contains many miracles within, but it itself is a miracle. This project focuses on spreading the miracles of Quran through articles, rich media, infographics, and videos etc.

Rich Media: Linguistic Miracle in Ayat al-Kursi

Ayat al-Kursi is the 255th Verse of Surat al-Baqarah in Qur'an. There are 9 sentences in this Ayat. The linguistic beauty or miracle of the arrangement of the sentences is that the first sentence is related to the last sentence, second one is related to the second last, third one is related to the third last and so on. And the middle sentence (5th one) indicates this symmetry by mentioning "before and after". For easy understanding, let's take a look (numbers indicates the sentence order):

1 - Allah! There is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence.
9 - And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
2 - Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep.
8 - and their preservation tires Him not.
3 - To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth.
7 - His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth,
4 - Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission?
6 - and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills.
5 - He knows what is before them and what will be after them,

Power Pens

Back 2 Masjid

Over the period of time, due to social pressure or other foreign cultural invasions, the teachings and practices of Islam sometimes get wrongly interpreted and practiced by the Muslims.
