About

Last Updated: 20th October 2021

Overview

Muslim Central Project is a non-profit organization, founded by brother Nathmie Slamang from Cape Town, South Africa around 2013 and later joined by friend and co-director, Mufti Ismail Menk(Zimbabwe). It was formally registered in 2016, NPO Registration No: 2016/256811/08.

We develop various platforms and digital content online to inspire and educate Muslims around the world. We have something for everyone, from kids to the elderly. We have aimed to keep everything free – but still high quality – to ensure access to those with limited internet and financial resources, especially in Africa.

Part of the inspiration behind our organization, was this notion that giving a copy of a lecture to someone, would yield the same reward as the speaker, recitation the same reward as the reciter and so on. Alhumdullilah, today our flagship projects alone generate over 130 Million audio downloads per year that can actual track accurately.

We generally take a minimal design approach, and without advertisements, except YouTube Channel as of 2021 as they stated they may show ads regardless without remuneration to those channels who are not officially allowing ads.

  2. Driving

The target audience is from teenagers and older, especially existing Muslim Central users who are accustomed to listening to lectures.
