(TORONTO STAR) — It has been dubbed “Facebook for Muslims” by some. But that’s not exactly what its creators have in mind.

They prefer to think of it more as a “global Muslim social network based on the Islamic idea of “collaboration” that will offer a package of services to Muslims around the world.

But it remains to be seen whether Salamworld — scheduled to hit the Internet during the month of Ramadan (July through August) 2012 — will win over Muslim youth.

According to Ahmed Azimov, deputy CEO and spokesman of Salamworld, the new network is a “chance for Muslim to have their own space” to exchange knowledge, skills, an djobs and business opportunities.
