This workshop was to bring the believing body up to date on the modern technology at hand. The believers were shown how to put together a computer, how to operate the computer, setting up email addresses, getting their pictures on the Nation's Program, and much much more.
As instructions came down from our National Secretary (Brother Bervie Muhammad) to upload a profile picture to the Nation's Program, I realized one meeting after the body of our Mosque were asked if we had uploaded our profile pictures and a high percentage of us said No I knew there was a problem. We the ministries came together to put something together that would benefit us. As we were planning it came to us to that there should be a full workshop on operating a computer, getting online, and learning how to fish and brand yourself through free internet sites likes: Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, blogging, and etc. am just excited to be apart of this great opportunity.
The value of this workshop was priceless. To see the need to help us to the modern time was very appreciative. You are the future and to help us to the modern times, so that we will not be a burden on the future or the present time.
The importance of having this workshop was good for our unity in the Nation of Islam as a family. The value of taking your pictures is that the Minister wants to know who the believers are. Like Brother Bervie said, when the Minister asks for something he does not want it in thirty or forty days we response quickly. It is like having a job how quick do you respond, it shows our dedication to the work. When we respond it show who the Minister can count on.
I found the seminar enlightening, informative and productive. I learn the familiarities and difference of how the different social sites operates like myspace to facebook, the difference between twitter, text messaging, and emailing. There were not a lot of technical language that was used, that made things easier for me to comperhend. Also being able to utilized them all and they are all free. And to even be able to just come and just put your picture on the Nation's Program. I really enjoyed this workshop.
The workshop was so needed because you have so many other organizations that are doing these kind of thing with their members which brings them together and members of the Nation see there progress and want the same for our Nation/Mosque, so it answers a need in our own house. Keep up the good work and may Allah continue to bless you to help the believers to grow in this area.
First I would like to give all praises and honor to Allah for allowing the MOI/
Fight for your Nation, Fight for your Own! As Salaam Alaikum!!
Brothers: If you have not taken your picture for the Nation's Program there will be pictures taken on Monday, August 17, 2009 right before F.O.I. class.
Sisters: We are working on planning a day sometime this week to complete the rest of your pictures.
A special thanks to Brother Jabril Muhammad and Brother Hakeem Muhammad for their assistance in this workshop.
