i like the website its kewl.. i think it should have a chat room so you can talk to youths whe are online at the time.. it would be awsome if it had a virtual world where you make your little muslim charecters or if it had a playlist and you can decorate your pg so other muslims can see what you like wat is your personality wat kind of music you like and what would you rather wear.

Hi Cherry, welcome to, its good to see you are a new user, i guess there are different ways in which you can use the site. The forum gives you an opportunity to talk about what you want to talk about with other young Muslims, the campaigns section will have lots of articles which will be going up on certain issues young Muslims have to deal with such as relationships, mental health, identity...etc.

You can comment on these and also upload your own responses by uploading videos to your profile page. Let me know how you get on!
