Google celebrates Ramadhan with special landing page

Google

Google has set up a special landing page for Ramadhan, which Muslims are required to observe by fasting during daylight hours. The page offers “more ways to get together during Ramadan,” which is often a time for post-nightfall family get-togethers and communal meals, as well as hangouts with celebrity chefs from Southeast Asia.

“Getting together for meals and laughs, telling stories, and simply spending time with loved ones—this is what holidays mean to many of us,” Hadi Raad, a Google marketing chief for “Emerging Arabia,” posted on Google’s blog.

In addition, since people who gather together might want something to do, Google offers Muslim-heavy regions such as the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Malaysia and Indonesia, “hours of video content for your whole family.”

Arnoud van Doorn embraces Islam

Former leading member Arnoud van Doorn, of Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ anti-Islamic party who became Muslim, was recently in Madinah praying with the Muslims. He reverted to Islam after he studied it. He is now our brother in Islam! He is praying in the raudah area of the mosque!

Thus we are reminded:

“And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” (Qur’an 3:54)

Allahu Akbar!
