خلافتِ فاروقیؓ، ایک قابلِ تقلید دورِ حکومت (حصہ اول)
حضرت عمر فاروقؓ اسلام کی وہ عظیم المرتبت شخصیت ہیں کہ جن کی اسلام کے لئے روشن خدمات، جرأت و بہادری، عدل و انصاف پر مبنی فیصلوں، فتوحات، شاندار کردار و کارناموں سے اسلام کا چہرہ روشن ہے۔ آپؓ کا سنہرا دورِ خلافت مسلمانوں کی بے مثال فتوحات و ترقی اور عروج کا زمانہ تھا، مسلمان اس قدر خوشحال ہوگئے تھے کہ لوگ زکوٰۃ دینے کے لئے "مستحق زکٰوۃ" کو تلاش کرتے تھے، لیکن انہیں زکٰوۃ لینے والا مشکل سے ملتا تھا۔
In this era where there is lot of misunderstanding about Islam, there is also lack of Islamic knowledge. Islamic education provides a vital role to overcome these global issues. Many institutions are willing to provide online education but due to lack of expenses and IT expert staff they lack to meet the International standard for online education.
Glare of Islam is a non-profit Islamic organization providing IT services to Islamic institutions from past 4 years in web, software and mobile application development. After successfully launching our 2 softwares GI-Quran Reference and GI-Media Library, we are now in the process of launching another web application named GI-Learning Management System.
About GI-Quran Reference
GI-Quran Reference was our first application launched in 2008 as a web application. It's design was based on Islamic Art and Calligraphy. It's a complete reference to the Holy Quran with different recitations, exegesis, translations, tajweed guide & rules, bookmarks and search feature. After various feedback from our users, we have released its desktop version. With desktop version it was easy for users to listen and learn Holy Quran without the Internet, plus it includes additional feature, Summary of every Chapter and Juz.
About GI-Media Library
GI-Media Library is a WordPress plugin which provides basic feature to create online course/media library for students. This plugin was very successful and is also listed on WordPress official site at http://wordpress.org/plugins/gi-media-library. After getting positive response from our clients, we have decided to extend this plugin to fully support all the requirements of LMS (Learning Management System). This is from where we have decided to develop another plugin with name GI-Learning Management System.

After developing these features, we have planned to extend it further to include Examination and Quiz system also. All of these features will be developed to support multilingual. This application will also be a free plugin for WordPress, which can be easily downloaded from WordPress.org.
We are willing to provide this plugin free of cost to all the Islamic institutions and for this we need your support in development of this new application. The estimated cost of development is $3000, with an estimated completion time period of 2 months.
You can help us raise funds for our cause by donating even if its $100 only. Your one small amount will make a big difference Insha Allah. In Holy Quran, Allah says:
Say, "Indeed, my Lord extends provision for whom He wills of His servants and restricts [it] for him. But whatever thing you spend [in His cause] - He will compensate it; and He is the best of providers."Surah Saba - Chapter: 34, Verse: 39
May Allah accept your contribution and grant you the best here and hereafter. Amen.
With best wishes and prayers,
