Link Love: 'Taqwa', the Muslim Friendly Search Engine

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم


What: - a new holy search engine with all the functions of a standard search website, plus a large dose of spiffy design, tools and Islamicness. MashaAllah.

I don't know the designer but credit goes to one unknown brother for creating this - kudos.

My Review

Pros: I instinctively typed in my own name to test Taqwa - 'zaufishan'... Bingo. A purple shlurple results list that reveals more as you scroll the page - no need to jump to pages or click more, or go back. The results are also broken down into 'pictures' and 'videos' in addition to the images, news and videos link at the top menu, so it's a fairly comprehensive search engine. Further, beside each result link there's a purple heart icon which if clicked asks 'do you think this is halal?', a 'no entry' icon representing 'haram' -whether this blocks the link from future searches, I do not know- and something that looks like a blue pumpkin but isn't, a question-marked ? face to 'discuss' and email your findings, should you not be pleased.

"Something may be perceived as haram or halal socially but scientifically or religiously
it could hold an educational purpose. Talk about it!"

My Rating gets a well rounded 8 out of 10 for its ease, functionality and design.

Taqwa is looking for recruitment, promotion and funding so if you're the right person, tell them. I personally like it. Move over Google, Yahoo and, Taqwah's in the house.
