The Islamic Hotline was first launched in Cairo nine years ago in August 2000 with the approval of Al Azhar Al Sharif, the highest Islamic Authority in Egypt and the Islamic world. The service proved popular with Egyptians answering millions of their inquiries on the provisions of Islamic Shariaa Law. The Islamic Hotline only utilizes the services of Sheikhs from Al Azhar University, with an average of approximately 500 questions per day.
The company is registered and based in Egypt. Initially the service attracted customers from Egypt and the wider Middle East but given Muslim demographics world-wide, it was felt that the Islamic Hotline had a great potential for international expansion. The company thus succeeded in pursuing agreements with local and international technology service providers to offer its services on a global, multi-lingual scale.
As a preliminary international step, in June 2009, the Islamic Hotline succeeded in launching its services in Europe, specifically through a local IVR number in the UK, and another in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as an International number. The service has therefore become available in Arabic, English and Urdu. The “Question and Answer” facility is also available through our website in the same three languages. The service will seek to maintain its current initiatives and hopes to expand further in the years to come.
