In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent.
Assalamu alaykum! Thanks for visiting my page. My name is Abu Yusuf. I’m a Muslim guy living on the Pacific coast of Canada. I’m grateful and honored to say that I believe in the oneness and uniqueness of Allah (God), and that His final messenger is Muhammad (peace & blessing be upon him). I have a very busy life alhamdulillah (all praise due to Allah), with a wonderful wife and two young children (one on the way insha-Allah). I’m not an Islamic scholar, but I hope to gain reward for disseminating whatever beneficial knowledge I do have. Some of my favourite things include listening to podcasts on my way to work, fixing and making stuff with my hands, photography, graphic arts, and buying things on sale:)
WHO CONTRIBUTES TO ISLAMIC INSPIRATION?
– Just me.
IS ABU YUSUF REALLY YOUR NAME?
– Not the one I use everyday. It literally means ‘dad of Yusuf’.
WHY DID YOU INITIALLY START THIS SITE?
– To keep my mind and heart inspired, and in the right place. And to satiate my creative bug. For the sake of Allah:)
WHY DO YOU UPDATE ONLY ONCE A WEEK?
– Because making a post takes time, and I have many other responsibilities.
WHY DO YOU PRODUCE PICTURES WITH EYES (‘Murat’)?
– I subscribe to the view that these kinds of images are not impermissible, Allah knows best. Having said that, please don’t go print those pics out and hang them on your walls.
SUCH AND SUCH IMAGE OFFENDS ME
– I’m very sorry. Message me and we can discuss your concerns.
IS THE SITE MEANT FOR MUSLIMS OR NON-MUSLIMS?
– Everyone, of course.
YOUR SITE IS SO BORING. WHY DON’T YOU HAVE FLASH ANIMATIONS?
– As I said, I have other things going on. If you have a suggestion, please let me know. Even better, if you know how to develop or promote a site like this, your help would be much appreciated:)
I SAW A DISGUSTING AD ON YOUR SITE!
– My apologies. WordPress inserts all sorts of adverts onto their blog pages. I don’t know if you can deactivate them. My advice for now is don’t look at ’em, and don’t click ’em.
WHY DO YOU HAVE SUCH A COMPICATED URL?
– I know. https://temp2012blog.wordpress.com is ridiculous. Sorry. I signed up with Wordpress with a spare email account in a moment of bewildered inspiration, and didn’t realize it would work itself into the eventual url.
WHAT ABOUT COPYRIGHTS?
– While I produce the final images found on Islamic Inspiration, I do not produce the majority of the photograpy used as elements in these images. I claim no credit for images that have been used in the creation of content on this site unless otherwise noted. Images used on this blog are copyright to their respectful owners. If there is an image appearing on this blog that belongs to you and you do not wish for it to appear on this site, please E-mail with a link to said image and it will be promptly removed.
Fi Amanillah, and Keep Inspired!
