Dear IBN TV,

First of all I want to congratulate the entire member and management  of IBN for the wonderful programs. I also congratulate for the  improvement you have made to IBN TV, this is great achievement.

I am proud of those people thinking that the best way to deliver our messages is through Media. Media is very powerful tool these days and we have to strengthen for the sake of our community and coming generation, specially youths. . I don’t know or have much  details on IBN, for example when was established, who is the owner, is registered network, why is limited only in Dar? Why we cannot broadcast in Tanzania? Those are few question I ask myself. But whoever has initiated may Allah give him towfiq.

Indeed, to run a television channel is expensive and needs dedication, we need to  involve of our community more and more, because I don’t see their involvement.  We need to advocate more and more and launch IBN to be a national TV, we need to raise fund to keep the quality, we need to launch and advocate. I can understand the challenges, but we are strong community and this can be reached if all we have the same objective.

Salaams and duas

Agha-e-Mahboob,   Salaam

I watched a programme last night on IBN around 9-10pm, an impressive documentary in English. This has come earlier on IBN, and i would recommend this to be repeatedly shown once a month. FA DHAKKIR…  We humans need constant reminders of how can we make the Earth a better place to live.  I do not know the name, and would like to know the same from you.

Salaam alaikum,  And thank you all for promoting divine values.

This morning I was watching the series of Shk Khalil Jaffer’s lectures, and was almost late getting to work. A very interesting lecture. May i suggest, if it would be possible to shift the timings to evening hours for more ‘at ease’ viewing ? Or to re-telecast during evening hours ?

Thank you once again for a fabulous job.

Congrats Mohammed Abbas.

That is nice to hear that you are going into Arusha. I watch IBN daily and I am a big fan. Keep up the good work.
I hope one day you can come up with a bigger project targeting the entire Muslim Community of TZ including the Bohoras, Sunni, Ismailis e.t.c Its content to include all that is common to everyone. A sort of a PAN MUSLIM network in TZ.

Do let me know.

Salaam Mehboob bhai and Razabha,

This is a great initiative i must say. Keep up the great work that both IBN and IZAAS is doing. IZAAS working at the ground root level and IBN’s role here in enabling IZAAS as well sharing this great information with the rest of the world. This way, the work of almighty continues through both efforts. Mashallah and iltemase dua.

With salams and duas and many many many many and so many thanks for a wounderful job very very very well done. Fantastic.

Actually Allah has given you taufiq to get into the media.  Some six years ago when you came to Bukoba for WF Task Force (bilal) while introducing you to my children i told them that you are blessed with communitating technic in the modern way.

Masha’Allah IBN Television is now not only the voice of Muslims but also the whole African community.   As Zinat  Fazal has rightly said, what our so many NGO’S or Charitable organizations do on the grass level, you present the same through media. IBN Television is our show case,  IBN Television is our voice of the voiceless.

May Allah give you more taufiq and may Allah open more doors for you and may Allah show you more venues.

Izaas is behind IBN Television and izaas  is fully supporting your  activities and to have a conference at Kigoma under the umbrella of Sheny bhai will make all institutions stronger to move forward.

Once again thanks and very very well done.

Thanks again
