Forum brothers work
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: i wanted 2 ask dat, do u all work in an office or sumthing like dat?
Dear and Beloved Sister, although the brother Ameer or the leader who initiated the forum shoulders the complete responsibility of moderating this humble forum has generously allocated some space in his office, the truth is that the brothers and sisters who are fortunate to be a part of the team actually live in four separate countries and communicate almost entirely via the internet.
Question: or u also do a job or sumthing 2 earn
Each and every brother or sister who spend a portion of their time and energy running this humble forum have been blessed by their Lord to seek and earn their separate livelihood: either through a small business or as an employee in a job, and one amongst our sisters, in addition to serving the forum also looks after her house and her new-born baby.
Your Question: i also want 2 no, how exactly do u all work?
Beloved Sister, it would be almost impossible to relate to you here all the exact details of the responsibility of each brother and sister of our humble team. Some have the responsibility of taking care of the process of subscriptions from our almost 50,000 subscribers, some have the responsibility of sorting the thousands of questions which are asked, one brother (me!) has been given the responsibility to write the answers, the scholars and researchers have the responsibility of making sure every answer posted is in exact accordance to the guidance of the Glorious Quran and the authentic Sunnah, some have the responsibility of distributing the answers on the web-site, while some have been allocated the prime responsibility to make sure the web-site is up-to-date and accurate. Our beloved brother Ameer or leader, who initiated this humble forum, is responsible for everything that happens on the forum, and also serves in the capacity of being the editor-in-chief of this humble forum.

Allah says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 67 Surah Al Mulk verse 2:
He (Allah) created death and life that He may test you, to see which of you is the best in deeds.
The Lord Creator has allocated a specified time of one life for each human being in this world as a test to see who amongst them wastes their time on useless and non-beneficial deeds, and who amongst them invests their allocated time which would be beneficial to them and their fellow human beings not only in the life of this world, but would also be beneficial to them in the eternal and everlasting life of the Hereafter.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 79 Surah Naziat verses 34-41:
34 Therefore when there comes the Great Overwhelming Event (The Day of Judgment)
35 The Day when man shall remember (all) that he strove for
36 And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see
37 Then for such as had transgressed all bounds
38 And had preferred the life of this world
39 The Abode will be Hell-Fire;
40 And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (Tribunal), and had restrained (their) soul from lower desires
41 Their abode will be the Garden.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6778 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said:
Dear and beloved sister in Islam, the world is overflowing with all kinds of temptations and desires, which if one indulges in them constantly seeking or preferring the luxuries of this short and transient world alone.more often than not, one would find enough pursuits to waste their allocated time.
But those fortunate ones who believe with absolute conviction and constantly remember that One Inevitable and Tumultuous Day everyone will be gathered and called before their Lords Tribunal to give a full accounting of their deeds, realize the value of their allocated invaluable and precious time, and instead of wasting it on seeking the pleasures of this world, they invest their time in doing deeds that will bring them closer and earn them the Mercy, Grace, and Forgiveness of their Lord Most Merciful.
Dear and beloved sister, the closer you get to the understanding of the Glorious Book of Guidance (Al-Quran), the more you will realize the value of this life compared to the value of the life in the Hereafter!
The more you value the life in the Hereafter, the more taqwa or God-consciousness, piety and righteousness you will be able to develop!
The more taqwa or God-consciousness you develop, the more you will try to do deeds which earn the Pleasure and Good Will of your Lord Creator!
The more you try to do deeds that earn the Pleasure and Good Will of your Lord Creator, the more you will find yourself abstaining from doing deeds that bring about His Wrath and Anger.
Thus my dear and beloved sister in Islam, the absolute first step you need to take is to make a solemn intention to start reading the Glorious Quran with understanding; and unconditionally implement each and every value demanded by the Glorious Quran in your daily life; for Allah is our witness, nothing but the Guidance of the Quran can help produce clearness in ones thought, balance in temperament, strength in character, purity in morals, firmness in conduct, truthfulness in talk, righteousness in deeds, and justice, equity, honesty, sincerity, and piety in every thing one does.
The Glorious Quran of Allah alone guides man how to manage, balance, and live ones life in this world, which will bring benefit not only to himself but to humanity at large; not only in this short and transient world, but more importantly in the everlasting and eternal life of the Hereafter. It is precisely this way of life which the Lord Most High has termed Al-Islam.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 19:
Indeed, Islam in the ONLY right way of life in the Sight of Allah.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Al Maidah verse 3:
Today I (Allah) have perfected your deen for you and completed my Blessing on you and approved Islam as your way of life.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 85:
And whoever adopts any other than this way of Islam, that way shall not be accepted from him and in the Hereafter, he shall be among the losers.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
