Humor: Components of the Ultimate Islamic Flyer

You can’t walk into a masjid now without seeing at least 10 different flyers advertising various events, courses, fundraisers, and so on. So after a very scientific study over the years of these flyers, we found the most common elements. Once combined, they can make what might be the most effective Islamic flyer ever known. Please make sure to credit us if you use this model.

The following pictures should be included in a collage format of some sort:

  • A masjid with minaret
  • A moon
  • A Qur’an
  • Outer space
  • Starving kids
  • Fire
  • Tree next to a river

The colors should clash, making the text hard to read. Feel free to open up the Word Art section and apply as many effects as possible.

Every line of the flyer should be written in a different font. If that’s too much work, just make the whole thing in Papyrus font.

Since you’re making this flyer in MS Word and not Photoshop, make sure to check for the squiggly red lines underneath the words. Make sure that at least 25% of the words in your flyer have said red squiggly line.

You also need a catchy title. A great way to do this is to go on iTunes and look at the top songs, and then just pretend they have an Islamic meaning. Or take a catchy saying and Islamify it. This is all assuming, of course, that it’s not a Ramadan program. All Ramadan programs should simply be called Hunger Games. Here’s a few program titles you can try:

  • Never Say Never
  • You Only Live Twice
  • Pound The Alarm (for Tahajjud)
  • Wide Awake (for Fajr)

Type out the following information:

  • Date/Time
  • Location
  • Speaker name
  • Topic
  • Price
  • Babysitting info
  • Website/email/phone contact

Now, go back and delete half of those before making the final draft.

Finally, make sure to print it out in color. When you get to the copy store though, you might be able to save money by printing in black and white. Don’t worry, no one can tell the difference.
