Join the Mobile Minaret Movement
The Mobile Minaret movement aims to build mobile content to teach and to promote Quranic critical thinking to the Muslim community at large, using SMS to drive engagement. You can help by joining our movement. If you choose to contribute, all contributions are tax deductible.
The idea of Quranic critical thinking isn’t a new idea in terms of Islamic civilization, but one that Muslim scholars throughout the world are now saying is urgently needed to counteract the radicalization that is occurring among the youth.
Islamic scholars believe that the greatest fear of extremists is that young Muslims move from being passive to active Quranic thinkers.
We can present Quranic critical thinking through SMS texting, an app, a game, and through engaging, sharable videos to bring about self-awareness.
We best develop Quranic critical thinking skills through dialogical learning, learning that takes place through dialogue with others or with our “self.” Through dialogue with the Quranic text with neighbors, with classmates, with a teacher or mentor, through a sharable video, a Facebook page, through a Twitter message or SMS text message, our goal is to achieve a genuine sense of justice and fair-mindedness, actively bridging any gap that may be present between our beliefs and our practice.
