Volunteer Opportunities Now Available at SeekersGuidance – One of the World’s Largest Online Islamic Educational Institutes

For those of you looking for a good way to be of assistance to others, I’d strongly recommend volunteering for SeekersGuidance – one of the world’s largest online Islamic educational institutes. The instructors are people of dhikr whose mere company elevates one’s own remembrance of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). Moreover they are imbued with the knowledge of the outward and inward Sunnahs of the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) specifically the qualities of gentleness, modesty, and mercy. I volunteered and worked at SeekersGuidance for over a year and found nothing but benefit from the ‘Ulema, the staff, the students, the courses, and services. One of the unique features of SeekersGuidance is the sense of serving Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) by serving His creation and to do so with a strong commitment to excellence.

The Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said “Only the merciful will be shown mercy by the All-Merciful…” If you are looking for a way to get closer to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) by serving His creation, SeekersGuidance is a golden opportunity as the work one does for educational institutes is classified as sadaqa jariyah. Even if you only come in and help design a flyer or write some copy or help book an event, the reward is boundless. Lastly, serving the ‘Ulema is a way to draw closer to the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) as the ‘Ulema are the heirs of the Prophets (alayhi salam). Here is a list of current openings.

Some of our team members say:

“Volunteering at SeekersGuidance has taught me about the true meaning of adab, by working within the close team of people that makes SeekersGuidance what it is. It was so refreshing coming to work in this blessed environment, especially when one is so used to a corporate office atmosphere; here we actually care about one another and the work that we do. The work is challenging, it’s fast paced and as we see our projects coming together and producing results, it’simmensely rewarding too.” Michelle, Educational Services Manager

“I have been very lucky to be chosen by Allah to work at SeekersGuidance. The SG crew is very friendly, sincere and selfless. Everyone’s opinion counts at SG, even the new recruits. The workload and the hours spent are not wasted, rather they become very sweet once you remember you’re doing it for the sake of Allah.” Saud Hanif, SeekersGuidance Student Support

“Volunteering your time to assist SeekersGuidance in producing affordable and quality Islamic educational services is an excellent way to fulfill the Prophetic directive to convey his message, even if it’s only one verse of the Holy Qur’an. That one verse could change someone’s life. So do your part, on whatever level you can, to be of service to the Muslim community by promoting the spread of sacred knowledge.”  Zaynab Ansari Abdul-Razacq, Teaching Assistant & Consultant

“As Muslims, we are accountable for every single breath that we take, and how we utilize our time in the most effective manner.  Volunteering at SeekersGuidance is a way of spending one’s short moments in this duniya in a way which will be insha Allah pleasing to Allah Most High.  It is a way of spreading Islam in its most pristine form, not only in the West, but all over the world.  This is an important task during a time in which Muslims/ Islam are stereotyped and misunderstood by the vast majority of society at large.  As a volunteer, I know I can make a difference, contribute,  and help others.” Shireen Ahmed, Course Development Co-ordinator

“It’s amazing how SeekersGuidance has come a long way from offering just two courses to about 18 now, masha Allah! It wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the dedicated team of volunteers running the show! It just goes onto to show how far pure intentions can take us. The main reason for me to volunteer here is that I know that my work means something to a lot of people – people who are trying their very best to reach Allah Himself.” Ahsan Irfan, SeekersLounge Developer & General Volunteer
