Projects

I am asked all the time: how can I help?

This page has the answers – answers for those who want to help take the Quranite project forward. But what follows is for doers only – people who will act on their convictions and back their words with:

  • Time
  • Purchases
  • Talents
  • Business acumen
  • Premises
  • Personal commitment

 

TIME

Social media

Spend a lot of time on social media? You can help by:

  • linking to a blog article each day
  • sharing a YouTube video each day
  • sharing a link to www.quranite.com with a recommendation each day

A little every day is much better than a lot all at once.

Write a review

You have read The Quran: A Complete Revelation and liked it.

A well-written review on Amazon or similar sites makes a lot of difference. Good reviews are particularly powerful if they come from a verified account with a real name. Please include a link to this site in your review if that is not forbidden under the store’s rules.

If you provide a supportive review from a verified account with a real name, please send me a link.

 

PURCHASES

Buy the book

When you buy the hardcopy of The Quran: A Complete Revelation – especially from us – that helps. If you already own a copy, buy another and give it to someone you care about.

Contribute towards the e-book

If you have read and benefited from the e-book version of The Quran: A Complete Revelation, make a contribution. That helps.

 

TALENTS

Advertising and Marketing

You know how to drive things forward using online platforms in an ethical and targeted way and can point to examples of successful projects you have worked on.

You will be professional, creative, and prepared to donate some time and expertise to help this project break through to a wider audience.

Translators

You are an experienced translator from English (with a portfolio which is literary rather than business or legal) into your mother tongue which should be a major world language.

This will be a substantial undertaking (527,000 words minus Arabic original of around 80,000 words) and is one with very strict requirements in terms of pan-textual consistency. It will also require that you thoroughly understand the source material before you begin. I am a professional translator myself; I understand how it works.

While we cannot pay you, we can offer you a rights deal (i.e. you will become a part-owner in the resultant book in that language). Or you can do it as a personal contribution. Get in touch.

Designers

You are a graphic designer, commercially experienced with a portfolio which includes book covers.

We want to build a consistent and appropriate style for a range of publications and products. We cannot pay you – or at least, not very much – until we grow. But if we grow, you will be the person who helped us do it. And you will be in pole position for the next stage. Get in touch.

Web programmers

You have expert skills in the WordPress environment with a broad portfolio of client sites.

I have strong technical skills, but as a generalist. There are times when I need specialist input – especially in the areas of customisation and security. Get in touch.

YouTube filmmakers

You are an experienced maker of YouTube films and can point to a portfolio which includes something made to the technical level of Zeitgeist.

This is a visual age. I simplify the key points which are found in The Quran: A Complete Revelation in my own YouTube videos; but they are designed to be listened to. I want to make 2 or 3 films which cover the key points – including visual warnings to the so-called Elite (which is a core part of the message).

I will provide scripts, voiceovers, and creative direction. You will be responsible for technical direction and making the result look and sound great.

We will make the result freely available on YouTube.

Proofreaders

You will be an experienced proofreader with a portfolio in areas which include literary.

I have spent hundreds of hours proofreading my own work, but there is no substitute for the offices of an experienced, objective and critical eye. Get in touch.

Legal expertise

You have a background in law (UK) in particular regarding charities, contract, copyright, publishing, company law, and parental rights for homeschooling, are currently practicing and have over five years’ experience in your field and will contribute some pro bono time. Get in touch.

 

BUSINESS ACUMEN

Bookshop owners & independent sales people

You have read and understood The Quran: A Complete Revelation and think more people should read it.

We will sell you copies at wholesale prices (beginning with just 20 copies) which you can then resell at retail.

While we ship anywhere in the world, delivery costs are far lower for some countries than others. See here for more information.

 

PREMISES

Audio studio owners

You own a professional studio and have a background in sound production and can point to a portfolio with strong vocal production.

The studio should be equipped with a top-end microphone and a professionally insulated vocal booth sufficiently large to work in for extended periods (i.e. not so small it becomes uncomfortable to breathe in). You should either be – or be able to provide – a sympathetic and personable sound engineer, and be able to guarantee a stress-free, trouble-free working environment. Ideally, there will be a window between the vocal booth and the studio.

In the first instance, there is a need to record a full audio version of The Quran: A Complete Revelation in high-quality audio. This will require 4 full working days of 8 studio hours per day plus breaks.

We are not able to pay, and we will be making this edition available online for free, both on my YouTube site as well as downloadable files from this site. I will provide the voiceover myself.

You should be able to provide basic accommodation. If you could also cover basic travel costs that would be great. Preferably within the UK, but other locations also considered. Get in touch.

Property owners or landowners

You own a property on land – or just land – where things will grow and which can get a decent internet connection.

I am drawing together believing families who want to live, work, and school their children together. We can either rent the land cheaply or you can gift the use of it to us. In any event, we will have written, witnessed agreements to safeguard the rights and interests of all. Get in touch.

Professional printers

If you happen to own or have leverage over a professional printing firm, we may be able to work together.

I want to produce editions of The Quran: A Complete Revelation which are technically comparable to well made Bibles; i.e. leather bound, India paper (commonly known as Bible paper), gilt edged, with bookmarks sewn into the binding.

If your business has these technical capabilities and you would allow us to do small runs at first while helping us keep the costs down, get in touch.

 

PERSONAL COMMITMENT

Community

We have in our family a small cadre of people who have chosen to dedicate themselves to the tasks the Quran outlines. And we are considering expanding to create a small community.

But know this: we are interested only in people who do. Show me what you have done with your time; what your achievements are.

This is for people who have chosen the steep path. It comes with consequences – including unpleasant and threatening ones, as you may discover if you choose it. It is not a joke, a pose or a fashion statement. There are some extremely unpleasant, highly brainwashed and aggressive people in the world from all walks of life who get enraged personally by this project.

This is not for freeloaders, dreamers or theory tourists. It is for people who pray; who fast; who work hard; people for whom service to God is not an add-on after the career, the mortgage, the conforming to society’s dictates and the favourite TV shows. It is for people who apply themselves diligently to using their time and talents to pleasing their Maker and are willing to sacrifice to that end.

It is not for those who confuse talking about the Quran with action; those who argue fruitlessly about their favourite theory; those who insist the Quran is connected with a particular ‘correct’ religion.

We work on this full-time and accept the consequences of our choices. We understand that we may be the only people who do so. But if there are other skilled and sincere people – preferably couples with children – who prove by their actions that they are committed to  the core precepts of the Quranic teaching which is that we are called upon to teach and to warn the broader world, then we are ready to pool our resources.

If this level of dedication is not for you – that’s fine. You can help in other ways, too. But if it is, get in touch.

Supporters

My family has given up everything – including worldly career, reputation and physical safety – to do this.

You may not be able to make the choices we have, but you can be a part of what we are doing by committing to a modest monthly contribution – or by giving a one-off  donation.
