CeramahIslam.com was developed and launched in 2004 providing free Islamic lectures in mp3 audio format, particularly lectures from teachers (asatizahs) in Singapore. Most of the lectures are conducted in Malay language, thus providing an alternative and additional source of knowledge for Muslim community in Singapore (particularly), Malaysia, Indonesia & Brunei. In addition to that, it has also been providing free downloads for Quranic recitation from various Qurra’ around the world.
CeramahIslam.com was derived from two Malay words; ‘ceramah’ & ‘Islam’. ‘Ceramah’ means ‘lecture(s)’. Therefore, it was originally developed to provide downloadable Islamic Lectures in Malay.
The links to the lectures and Quranic recitation can now be found under the ‘Legacy’ section.
In 2015, CeramahIslam.com was registered as a formal entity, and is now running Islamic courses catering mainly for Muslim adults in Singapore (while retaining it’s original name). CeramahIslam.com currently employs 5 full-time staff and a few part-time teachers who are helping to spread da’wah & provide Islamic education to the community.
