Going Global Already: Muslims, Islamic Propagations and Internet Usage

Lambert Academic Publishing has published a book called "Going Global Already: Muslims, Islamic Propagations and Internet Usage" written by Abdulhameed Kayode Agboola from the International Islamic University Malaysia. This study investigated the use of the Internet as a channel of religious communication by Muslims. As revealed in the pre-research investigation, Muslim Web Sites are not entirely dedicated to Islamic propagation. The study found that the level of "educative" and "informative" articles on Islamic propagation displayed on Muslim home pages was relatively low. These home pages were found to contain more "informative" type of articles, a type that concentrated on news about Muslims affairs around the world rather than on propagating Islam.
