My name is Basil Mohamed Gohar, and I am a Muslim, which means I adhere to the religion of Islam. I am also a web developer/programmer, which means (or at least, should mean), I adhere to standards and good programming practices in my projects.

I was born in the United States of America and I currently live in Pickerington, Ohio. I enjoy doing online projects, studying my religion, and working for da`wah, which means inviting others to the practice of Islam. Most of my free time is spent doing one or the other, and sometimes both at the same time (e.g., Hidayah Online, Audio Islam, & Columbus Dawah). Feel free to ask about any of them, if you are so inclined.

In addition to my online projects, I also enjoy recording, mastering, & editing audio, primarily in the form of lectures & recitations of the Qur’aan. I have done some audio work with EmanRush Audio, AlMaghrib Institute, and the Texas Dawah Convention.
