WASD is very keen to encourage the engagement and empowerment of all citizen across the world with particular focus on children, youth and women. Our various community engagements initiatives and projects together with our various partners across the world aim to encourage the engagement of everyone and to make the voices of all citizen heard and consequently enabling the decision makers to consider those views and ideas in their big decisions. WASD is very keen to understand the various perspectives and expectations of all citizen for their future and accordingly help them be ready to grasp the various opportunities generated in the digital economy. We strongly believe ordinary citizen should be the cornerstone of any strategy by all governments and policy makers. We must listen to everyone particularly our children and youth and more importantly how we can help our youth with their future employment plans and aspirations. Youth from all-over the world are encouraged to participate in all our events and activities and present their research, perspectives and initiatives.

Since the start of the current global lockdown from the Coronavirus pandemic, WASD has been continuously engaged in organising various awareness events such as seminars, roundtable debates, interviews, etc live on Facebook page using live streaming applications. You can watch all the videos produced during the Covid-19 global lockdown here.

The day of Jomaa it is given this name because Muslims gather in it at Zohar time to preform Salat al-Jomaa. Jomaa is the day Allah (SW) created Adam (AS), then entered into Janah and removed from it on Jomaa as well. It is also going to be the day of resurrection. Zohar Salah is prayed four Rak’ as silently however Jomaa is prayed two Rak’ as loudly and it is said that the Khutbah is equivalent to the other two Rak’ as of Zohar. As a result, you are not supposed to speak or make any noise while the Khutbah is taking place otherwise your Jomaa is void. The Prophet (PBUH) encouraged Muslims to arrive early for Jomaa and the earlier you arrive the greater the reward in sha Allah. The Khutbah plays a great role in the spiritual life of the Muslim, therefore we decided with the help of Sudan Knowledge to deliver the Khutbah every Friday because of the Coronavirus lockdown. This is primarily to continue the spiritual development of Muslims while they are unable to attend the prayer in the Mosque. This will in sha Allah continue until the lockdown is totally lifted and we hope that you can share the link with others.
