Project: Sign Islam

I am reposting the information below from this site.
For more information about a specific project to benefit deaf and hearing impaired Muslims, also see Project: Sign Islam.

What is Al-Qasas: Muslim Transcription Society?

Al-Qasas a sub-group of As Sirat is an online transcription society devoted to transcribing Islamic lectures for the benefit of others.

What are our aims and objectives?
The transcription of Islamic audio lectures has many benefits and uses. Al-Qasas aims to take this to a new level by producing transcription of many lectures to suit the different needs of the people. It is also a means for our dear brothers and sisters to gain access to knowledge they wouldn’t have otherwise.

How do we aim to achieve this?
Al-Qasas will produce transcription of audio lectures in different formats as well as providing extra features to enhance the learning experience.

These include:
Fully transcribed lectures followed by a summary
Summarised lectures
Al-Qasas Action Points
Tests & Quiz’s
And more

Al-Qasas is currently in its development stage before it can be fully underway. This is an exciting and highly beneficial project that needs your help. We are in need of many volunteers to take up different roles.

Are you interested in becoming a Transcriber?

Or would you like to be a Proof Reader?

Are you a student of knowledge that has the abilty to check our transcripts for mistakes?

Do you have the know-how to create a dynamic new website for Al-Qasas? (not neccessarily a voluntary role)

Are you a person with presence on the Net and can help promote Al-Qasas?

If you would like to volunteer for Al-Qasas please email us at alqasas1{@}
