Call to Action: JummahPrayer.com Launches, Offers Free Weekly Friday Prayer Podcasts for Muslims

LA CROSSE, WI--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -  JummahPrayer.com, a brand new online podcast service, today announced the public launch of its website JummahPrayer.com (http://www.jummahprayer.com). Beginning today, Muslims around the world can go to JummahPrayer.com and listen to free podcasts of regular khutbahs (Muslim Friday prayer sermons) that are posted by participating mosques. Jummah Prayer's call to action provides mosques with an online platform to quickly upload fresh Friday prayer sermons that are accessible to the public.

Using a simple mp3 voice recorder, mosques can upload their audio Friday prayer sermons directly to JummahPrayer.com with the click of a button. Once khutbahs are uploaded, Muslims around the world can listen to Friday prayer sermons from any internet enabled device such as computers, net books, and smart phones.

In addition to providing Muslims with a platform to listen to sermons from their mosque, JummahPrayer.com also serves as a resource for non-Muslims to learn about the religion of Islam. "Religious tensions have increased in recent years. I developed JummahPrayer.com to encourage a better understanding of the religion of Islam and to promote goodwill, friendship, peace, and trust between Muslims and non-Muslims," said Wale Elegbede, creator of JummahPrayer.com.

Content hosted on JummahPrayer.com reflects the unique richness of Islam and the Muslim community. The main page of the website features dynamic podcast columns that appear as new content from participating mosques are uploaded. Online viewers also have the ability to rate, comment, and flag content uploaded to JummahPrayer.com, thus ensuring that content is not inflammatory or derogatory.

Wale Elegbede also said, "JummahPrayer.com is the first online podcast service that provides Muslims across the world with the ability to simply upload their khutbah (Muslim Friday prayer sermons), making them accessible to a greater public. It is my hope that once word reaches local mosques in our Muslim communities that they will start to take advantage of this resource."
