🕌Why Live Stream Islamic Services?

Live streaming offers the opportunity to reach more people exponentially beyond physical space and time limitations. It allows catering to the marginalized community members, who might be deterred from attending the prayer and other services in person for several reasons – unavailability of a mode of commuting, physical disability, sickness, remote location, and so forth, including Islamic burial services and Islamic funeral services. At the same time, it gives people different means to engage with the learned scholars and stay updated with the teachings of Islam. The Islamic scholars can interact with the audience in real-time, answering their queries and concerns and strengthening their knowledge base. Moreover, since the younger community is more inclined toward digital media, making Islamic services available online through social media and the web is just the right thing.

🛩️ Why Use OneStream Live?

OneStream Live is a robust live-streaming solution that allows you to broadcast your Islamic services with exceptional ease and professionalism. It works equally well on the browser and the mobile app, making it extremely easy to live stream your Islamic services, including Islamic funeral services and Islamic burial services. Moreover, you can live stream pre-recorded videos, go live in real-time via any third-party app like Zoom, OBS, XSplit, Ecamm, etc, or go live instantly from the browser with OneStream Studio on multiple social media and websites simultaneously. So, for instance, you can multistream the Friday prayers, including Islamic funeral services, on a Facebook Group, YouTube or Twitter channels, LinkedIn page, and 45 other social networking platforms and the web all at once. You can add customized backgrounds, overlays, tickers, and countdown timers into your live streams as per the event and give it a festive or religious touch, enhancing the experience of broadcasting Islamic services. You can also add guests to your live streams to go live with you and so much more.

What is even more appealing is that you can embed these live streams on your Islamic organization’s website to cater to a vast audience, regardless of their location, ensuring accessibility to Islamic burial services and more. There is no need for complicated sign-ups or software installations; it is all just a click away.

You can further extend your audience by creating a stand-alone customized webpage for live streaming using Hosted Live Pages. For instance, if your local mosque does not have a website but wants to stream its Tarawih prayers during Ramadan, you can create a personalized live streaming webpage for the mosque.

You may also opt to schedule pre-recorded Islamic lectures to bond with the communities of faith, adding captions/subtitles to better understand those who might be linguistically different. This will particularly augment the reach of the Islamic services.


🕋 Content Ideas for Live Streaming Islamic Services

📿Daily Prayers

Live stream Islamic lectures and services using OneStream Live, ensuring access to essential Islamic services, such as daily prayers. Muslims offer Salah (prayers) five times a day, but not all go to the mosque to do so. For those at home, such as the housewives, the young and the elderly, and the physically disabled, a live broadcast of the Jammat (congregation) can help them pray along with the community while not being physically present at the mosque, ensuring they partake in Islamic services.

🤲Congregational Prayers

Congregational prayers, such as the Jummah (Friday prayer) and Eid prayers, can be broadcast live to maximize the number of people who can pray together, including those seeking Islamic funeral services. The Khutbah (sermons) that precede these congregational prayers hold unique value for the Muslim community, and people travel from far off to attend these sermons in person. With live streaming, they can participate in special prayers conveniently at home.

🌙Dars, Daura-e-Quran and Daura-e-Tafseer

These are Islamic lectures that revolve around understanding the teachings of the Quran, the Holy Book of Muslims. They involve going through the Quran, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, through detailed translations and interpretations. The Muslim Ullemah (Islamic scholars) discuss the wisdom behind each of the Quranic chapters, the Holy commandments, and how they apply to the everyday lives of the Muslims. Live streaming of these services can significantly facilitate the strengthening of the Islamic community and sharing of knowledge amongst the masses.

🧕Islamic Courses

Islamic academies can leverage live streaming to offer virtual courses for those who live abroad or cannot physically attend classes at an Islamic institute. Just like a contemporary learning environment, Islamic scholars can deliver lectures in real time and through video recordings. Many others can volunteer to preach to others the virtues and ethics of Islam and gain the reward of Allah. The Muslims can learn Quran recitation with Tajweed (accurate pronunciation), memorize short Duas (supplications), and engage in other forms of learning through live streaming of these Islamic courses.

🪔Muslim Ummah Issues

 Discussing the prevalent issues concerning the Muslim community in Friday prayers and other congregational services is a regular Islamic service. Islamic scholars host live telephonic and television programs, especially during Ramadan, to address any queries and concerns people might want to discuss. These sessions can be taken to social media via live streaming to cater to a larger audience and embedded on various Islamic websites to facilitate the average Muslim believer. With OneStream Live, pre-recorded sessions can be live-streamed as regular transmissions to allow maximum viewership. More importantly, a playlist can be curated for the most commonly watched live streams and scheduled to go live at regular broadcasting times, further expanding the reach of Islamic services.
