Respected friends, Salamun alaikum
Although I am not that old and hardly look 55 :-) my intractable, though not serious, heart condition keeps me under the weather on and off.
This may be the right time to transfer the website and the forum to someone known to be competent and sincere to the Qur'an. My first choice is the brilliant, highly intelligent, knowledgeable, competent and trustworthy Jawaid Ahmed Saheb of UK if he accepts it. Saleem Adam of Minnesota, our technical expert, is the most sincere and selfless gentleman I have ever known. He will continue to help us with technical issues and as a moderator as well. Saleem and his wonderful wife, Rishma, are like family members to me and they have been working with us with excellence for many years.
However, for the sake of fairness, this post is meant to invite any knowledgeable, composed, honest, competent and sincere, Qur'an-oriented Muslim to accept the offer.
Interested persons may express their intent on the forum, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 954-746-2115.
The decision will be made by the ten member SHURA Committee existing since 2003.
I will continue to participate as much as the health permits. So, I won't be far from my beloved and honorable viewers.
May Allah bless all of you in both lives!
Shabbir, a lifelong student
