👋 Salaam and welcome! Who's out there?

Today is a milestone on the roadmap of Zoya. With the launch of this community, we will connect with each other and in doing so unlock the power of many.

There are many things we are going to achieve together. We’ll share industry insights, answer each other’s questions, we’ll debate businesses, offer opinions and uncover great new investments. But the one aspect I’m most enthused about is the sense of belonging and friendship that I know emerges when you’re with like-minded people from around the world. Our common objective is to invest well: in knowledge, relationships and, of course, in stocks.

When contributing to this community please just be yourself. Do not be deterred by that natural reluctance to speak in public. Your opinion might just lead to us towards uncovering the greatest investment of our lives.

So let’s get the community ball rolling. If you’re comfortable doing so, answer the following questions:

  1. Who are you? Tell us a little about yourself.
  2. Where are you located?
  3. What stock (or any other investment) are you most excited about holding for the next decade?

Salaam all,

Just reading the bio of first 15 people is pretty impressive and almost intimidating. But excited to know that wealthy and successful Muslims are interested in Halal income. May Allah give us all barakah-filled halal/tayyib provisions and make us grateful to Him.

  1. I am Salahuddin. An average developer in technology. Total newb in investing world (pandemic found Zoya :slight_smile: ). Extremely happy to be able to lean on Zoya to buy and sell stocks with the chump change I have, Alhamdulillah.

  2. Live in Jersey.

  3. I haven’t sort out investing for 10 months yet. So let’s see what the future holds.

Nice to “meet” y’all.

Hello! Really excited about this space. Looking forward to taking in all the knowledge here (I’m an absolute rookie so not sure if I have much to contribute just yet)

I’m Firoze, working out of the Bay area as an Android developer.
Holding for the next decade? Honestly the things that come to mind are HLAL, SPRE and TSM. I’m a complete rookie so starting with relatively stable things like ETFs for now. Zoya has been an absolute game-changer in getting into investing in a Halal way. Really appreciate the efforts here!

Salam,

I am Rezk (Rizq) from Egypt. I was born in Germany and also live here. I have been studying Islamic Finance for over 10 years and am constantly learning.

I have been investing in the stock market myself for over 7 years.

Mainly I invest in growth and value stocks. Zoya made the business screening easier for me. I would be happy if Zoya would also update the market capitalization regularly so that the financial screening would also be correct.

It’s nice that there is a community and you can replace each other. I hope we can all learn from each other insha’allah.
