WRITING CONTEST: Support Prophet Muhammad

Assalamu Alaikum! Insha'Allah this message finds you in the best of health and imaan. Amin. This one landed right in my lap, so to speak...hahaha...on my laptop! It came with a link and I went to here is my report! Before I forget! The scroll bar to the contest's website is on the LEFT! *smile* This contest is organized to show and rally support for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) against the vicious campaign of defamation waged by some newspapers. It started with a Danish paper publishing offensive caricatures insulting the Prophet (pbuh), hence all Muslims. The caricatures are meant to distort the Prophet's noble character and Message. In response to the vicious campaign of distortion, the Al-Aluka Website has decided to organize this contest as a contribution to the efforts being made towards defeating the aggression against the Prophet's character on the one hand, and towards showing all the world his genuine and noble character on the other. Al-Aluka hereby invites those interested in taking part in this contest to: (1) write a research paper, (2) a short story, (3) an article, or, (4) an essay on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The invitation is extended to a wide age range of participants, from 12-year-olds to academic researchers. The winners will be financially rewarded, and the winning material will be published so that decent people allover the world can see for themselves the nobility of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). For details and conditions, please read Contest Requirements. May Allah, the Almighty, bless our humble endeavor to show and rally support for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)and his noble Message against the vile and evil campaign of defamation. May Allah purify our intentions and attune our hearts to what pleases Him, which is for the good of all beings. May His peace and blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his kin and his Companions.
