*Editor note: 1st Ethical Charity Trust includes Imam Abu Eesa Niamatullah (Prophetic Guidance, Al Maghrib) and his team of hardcore da`wah activists. I was approached to become a team member but I'm not built for such greatness; this is a seriously amazing opportunity with seriously challenging roles - you will be involved in several projects, expected to take lead, be pushed to find your talents and become part of an online/offline network. If you meet the criteria take a shot (apply anyway).
