Would you like your words to change people’s lives through inspiring them to learn the Quran? If you answered yes to the above question, you’ve come to the right place.
What to write?
Your blog posts should inspire readers to learn Tajweed, Hifz or Arabic. These blog posts should focus mainly on:
- Learning and teaching the Quran
- Benefits of the Quran
- Children and the Quran
- Adults and the Quran
- Tajweed, Hifz and Tilawat
The blog posts may belong to any of the following genres:
- Personal, real-life inspiring accounts or anecdotes
- Research-based articles
- Time-sensitive pieces (on current happenings related to the Quran)
- Book reviews
- Motivational articles (self-help, how-to, handy tips, inspirations, etc.)
Currently, the following genres are not accepted:
- Topics which involve any discussion of fiqh, ‘aqeedah, hadith commentary or sharia issues
Qutor will not publish articles which fuel any conflict. Your writing should be free from political thoughts or propaganda.
How do I increase my chances of getting published?
- Follow the word limit: 700-900 words
- Blogs must be original – no plagiarism.
- All blogs must be exclusive to QUTOR (not published previously, even on the writer’s blog).
- QUTOR acquires the copyright to any articles that we accept for publication, and thus the writer is not allowed to repost his or her QUTOR articles on other sites. However, QUTOR reserves the right to share the writer’s articles with other sites.
- Your article should be easy to read. Please break it into paragraphs with bullet points when necessary.
Citing Qur’anic references and hadiths in blog articles
- The grades of all hadiths cited in blog articles must be specified. A basic grade as mentioned on www.sunnah.com will do.
- It is QUTOR’s policy not to use weak hadiths in blog articles. Please ensure you cite only sound or reliable hadiths.
- When citing verses from the Qur’an, hyperlink the Qur’anic reference to its link on www.quran.com. For instance:
“And [recall] when We parted the sea for you and saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were looking on.” (Al-Baqarah 2:50) This makes it easy for the blog editor to verify the reference.
