Click to see Preview of MockupsThe Ahlul Bayt DILP team is working on the development of Next Generation Al-Islam.org (code named Al-Islam 2.0). During development the site will under go a complete redesign & code change. The highlights of Al-Islam 2.0 are:
  • Collaborative: Allow users to collaborate by adding resources to the library, make corrections (like typos), Translate/Transcode texts, contribute to projects like Scholars Portal and Travel & Events.
  • Multilingual: The portal and its resources will be available in Multiple languages.
  • Semantic: Information will be presented as Linked data so that it can be understood by machines allowing applications within Al-Islam framework & 3rd party websites to Pull data. This will make way for better search results, unified login across Al-Islam projects and unlimited possibilities to create mashups to make data more useful.
  • Accessible: Content will be accessible in various formats (HTML, Word, PDF, Audio etc), on various devices (PC, Mobile, iPad etc).
