KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 17): SalamWeb Technologies MY Sdn Bhd (SalamWeb) today launched the world's first Shariah-certified web browser and digital ecosystem for Muslims around the globe to discover, connect and contribute in a free and safe online environment.

Its managing director, Hasni Zarina Mohamed Khan, said SalamWeb introduced a new range of connected Internet services including SalamWeb Browser, SalamNews, SalamChat, and SalamSadaqah which were endorsed by Amanie Shariah Supervisory Board, in conformity with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation's (MDEC's) Islamic Digital Economy Mi'yar .

"This SalamWeb product has been thoughtfully designed to optimise the Islamic way of life where it has inbuilt features such as a qibla compass, prayer timings and a custom news feed aggregated from verified news sources.

"An important feature of the SalamWeb Browser is the SalamProtect, an advanced content filter that is customised to an individual's way of life," she said at the launching of the world's first shariah-compliant Internet Suite of Services, here, today.  

“SalamProtect alerts users on inappropriate content, allowing the users an option to either continue ahead or withdraw from the content.

"This includes content which could be potentially explicit, offensive or fraudulent. SalamProtect also allows users to assign a SalamTag to a website-appropriate, neutral or inappropriate by involving the community to tag content they deem appropriate or inappropriate.

"SalamProtect not only allows users to be in complete control of their online experience but helps build a safer and secure like-minded digital ummah," she added.

Another important feature is SalamSadaqah which incorporates the Islamic practice of sadaqah (charity) into the Internet browsing experience.

"To encourage the community to be part of the SalamWeb experience, each web search or content report made by users will be matched to a donation amount made by SalamWeb. With SalamSadaqah, users can convert their everyday Internet experience to a charitable cause," Hasni Zarina said.
