1. Audio Publishing
Muslim Central started many years back around 2012, out of a perceived lack of organization of Islamic Audio material. If one wanted to listen to a particularly speaker, his or her content was not organized but rather spread across many websites. The key driver was the idea of using RSS/Podcasts per Speaker or collection of content and providing a single point of entry for content. This is what makes us unique.
- 12 000+ Islamic Audio Lectures
- 100+ Speakers from around the world
- Serving over 2 Million Downloads a Month – 3rd Party Verified
- 100+ iTunes Audio Podcasts
- 100+ Android Audio Apps
- Open Platform allowing 3rd Party Integration
- Stream or Download from any Device
- Weekly Email Updates
- Content Uploaded Weekly
* As of Feb 2017
- The conventional way of publishing audio to more modern mobile friendly websites and further,
- To the newer way via iTunes Podcasts & Android Apps
- And finally, by creating an open platform whereby third-party applications can integrate with our publishing system
By combining both the aforementioned methods, we have ensured to provide our audio services on a platform that is open to be used by third party applications as well.
We have a fully integrated service, making us unique from other platforms out there. Every single content that gets uploaded on our website (sometimes by the speakers themselves) pushes through automatically to our channels. This is the key difference!
Each speaker on our platform is given a complete Audio Channel comprising of the follow:
- Website Channel
- iTunes Audio Podcast
- Android Audio App
- RSS/Podcast Feed
Upload and Publish
We have a private uploading service for speakers or their representatives. Once they completed a talk, having recorded it from there mobile phones or otherwise can then upload.
Once audio is uploaded, within seconds our automated publisher will push the audio to our Website, thereafter it becomes available almost immediately on the speakers iTunes Podcasts, Android App and third party apps that have integrated with our system via RSS Podcast Feed.
- Using the Standard RSS Feed (4), users may make use ANY device including Blackberry, Windows Phones, Android, etc., to download Podcast Clients (also known as Podcast Catchers). This means you can use any third party podcast catcher you like. We do not lock you in!
- Our Website is both Smart Phone and Tablet friendly, thereby, providing maximum compatibility for multiple devices.
- Our content is highly organized
- Updated regularly, Alhumdullilah
- We also provide a weekly email that sends out a list of new audios that were added in the previous week, keeping you updated alhamdulillah.
However, please note that the content may contain some advertising placed by a third-party over which we have no control whatsoever.

In many parts of the world, example South East Asia and Africa, the internet is slow and expensive. Audio is much cheaper to distribute than Video.
