Why Play? 

MRDF have two leading online projects of their kind. The first being islam21c.com and the second is prophetictimeline.com. Although both are very different in their essence and purpose you will find that the content hosted within each will not be found elsewhere on the Web. We have learnt that Muslims need more encouragement to read and benefit from the litreture available to us. And so we created an online Treasure Hunt in which we use fun riddles to encourage you to read and benefit from the material on our sites.

How it works…(please read carefully)

The first of 12 riddles has been released (link below) and there will be 11 more to follow over the course of 4 weeks. Each week we will release 3 riddles (on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). 

All riddles will be posted on this page. Every time the next riddle is released we will send you an email update. To recieve this update either sign up on the form to the right or keep a regular eye on this site. 


How to play

Once you have the cryptic riddle, study it carefully for it will lead you to its answer. From the riddle you will be able to work out the following;

      1)      Which of the two MRDF websites to go to for the answer (www.islam21c.com or www.prophetictimeline.com)

      2)      Which area of the website to find that answer (if for e.g islam21c then under the category Texts or Politics and Law etc)

      3)      Which content to find the answer (article, text, video etc)

      4)      Where within that content the answer lies (you will have to read to find it.)

      5)      The answer, either a word or a number names and numbers such as John Smith or Twenty Five count as one word).

The last riddle will go out at this time and we will give you the email address to send in all your answers from then onwards not before.

How to win

Once the final riddle is announced you will have 12 answers (12 words/numbers only) to submit to the email address we provide to you (sent with the final riddle). To make things more interesting wehave decided to change the way we pick our winner. Instead of the first hunter to send all 12 correct answers being the happy owner of an brand new 32GB iPad2 (wi-fi & 3G), we will give 24 hours from the time the last riddle is released for you to send us your 12 answers. Then all the correct answers will be put into a draw a winner picked at random and announced.
