Dallas, TX – In what appears to be the latest chapter of social media’s adaptation to Ramadan, members of the Islamic Society of Dallas are beta-testing a concept they’ve dubbed ‘Twitter Taraweeh.’ The Taraweeh is a congregational evening prayer offered by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan. Community members introduced the program this year to address infrastructural gaps that exist across the current facility.
Kamran Pasha, president of the ISA, approved the idea after discovering that the Masjid’s speaker system were not operating correctly, and repairs for it would exceed budget. Pasha admits that they have faced some logistical challenges this year, including hijacking of some hashtags, but overall they are pleased.
The ISD invited visiting Imam, Shaikh Khalid Mabuti, who claims he has a PhD in Twitter Taraweeh, and over 10 years experience.
“I have a PhD in Twitter Taraweeh, it’s on my diploma. I don’t have it with me right now.” said the Imam from Anywheresville.
