Jazakumullah Khairan katheeraa for your interest in Ayeina. We would like to invite our readers to join the process of teaching, sharing and learning. Every life is a story and every story is beautiful. We hope, by opening up submissions from guest authors, that we can welcome different perspectives of different reflections. Hence expanding the Ayeina team in shaa Allah. We have a very small team for now. So we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding if we fail to respond promptly.
We are open to wide range of ideas and modes of spreading khair. As long as your content will benefit the masses in a halal way, we welcome it wholeheartedly. (Please note that we are not taking any poetry submissions as of now). We do not pay our guest writers anymore unfortunately, but if you are looking for a paying Muslim market as an Islamic writer, please refer to THIS POST.
If your submission falls under the literature category then kindly go through the guidelines so the whole process becomes easier for you and all of us in shaa Allah:
Your best way to know what we accept and how we formulate it is by looking at our previous posts. For a general idea, following are the categories we have:
1: Parenthood – from Islamic Parenting to Raising Muslim Kids (Muslim homeschooling etc.)
2: Islamic Lists – we accept wide variety of topics in this section as long as it’s in the form of a list.
3: Arabic Learning – (Arabic for non-natives – specifically, Mini Ahadith Series – short ahadith and their explanation along with root word analysis etc. for new Arabic learners and kids).
4: Qur’anic Reflections (dividing Qur’an into revisable sections and going through the Tafseer each week by writing reflections on it).
5: Earning Halal from Home series – welcoming Muslim entrepreneurs to share their journey (and also promote themselves as long as their article is a helpful step by step guide to how they set up that particular business from home).
