MuslimMatters.org is pleased to announce the launching of its official PODCAST that we told you about earlier. What that means is, you can subscribe to our podcast feed in iTunes and all the audio we post will automatically download to your iPod (you can also use other mp3 players and clients to get podcasts, iTunes is just the most popular).
What's a podcast?
The term podcasting derives its name from Apple's iPod, but to create a podcast or even to listen to one, you don't need to own an iPod, or any portable music player for that matter. In a nutshell, Podcasting is a new type of online media delivery. You publish selected audio files via the internet and allow your users to subscribe via an RSS feed to automatically receive new files. (source)
For those awaiting a solid podcast to subscribe to and get free mp3′s, inshā'Allāh this is your answer :)
We will be podcasting out all the audios that have previously been posted on MuslimMatters since the site started early last year. We also have some hot new content that you have not heard from our on-board Shuyūkh and others.
*If you have some recordings, specifically of our on-board Shuyūkh, that have not yet been made public, please contact us and let us know. The best way to get these is record the khutbah's they give when you get an AlMaghrib class :)
We need everyone to subscribe to the MuslimMatters.org podcast. This will obviously give you free lectures, but more importantly, it is a da‘wah opportunity for you. The more people that subscribe to our podcast in iTunes, the better our ranking in the iTunes podcast directory, and the more people that benefit inshā'Allāh. Currently we are in the Religion&Spirituality -> Islam section, but we are a few pages back. In fact, podcasts for the Ahmadiyyah movement are featured far more prominently in this category than many Muslim podcasts – and the top “Islamic” podcast is currently Farrakhan speaks.
So what's left now? Subscribe and enjoy the podcast :)
