I’m not sure people are still signing onto a online reality a la Second Life—I was never into it—but Muxlim.com is now offering the first Muslim virtual world. From the BBC:

Aimed at Muslims in Western nations, Muxlim Pal’s creators hope it will also foster understanding among non-Muslims.

“We are not a religious site, we are a site that is focused on the lifestyle,” said Mohamed El-Fatatry, founder of Muxlim.com - the parent site of Muxlim Pal.

“This is for anyone who is remotely interested in the Muslim culture and the Muslim lifestyle,” he said.

“From what we have seen from our market research is that most Muslims have a lifestyle that is not so different from everybody else,” he said. “They all share the core values which are from Islam then beyond that they actually have made identities, they have many interests.”

Thanks, Web Guy, for the link.
