Muslim Scripture

  21 hours ago

According to the sirah, the biography of Muhammad, God sent the first revelation to His Prophet when Muhammad was forty years of age. From then until his death in 632 c.e., some twenty-two years later, the Quran, as the revelation is called, came to the Prophet in bits and pieces through the intermediary of the angel Jibril (Gabriel). Today, it exists as a book with 114 surahs, chapters, a little shorter in length than the Christian New Testament. The chapters and verses, ayahs, are not in the order of revelation, and to many outside Islam, the juxtaposition seems to be disjointed and difficul...     Learn More ››








Islam and Other Religions

Islam is the youngest of the three monotheistic world religions, with Muhammad coming after the prophets of Judaism and Christianity. For Muslims, Islam is the completion and perfection of a process of revelation that started with Adam, the first human, and ends with Muhammad, the “Seal of the Prophets.” History is divided into two periods: the time of God’s active revelation through His prophets, and the time from the revelation of the Quran to the time when the world will be judged, the yawm ad-din (Day of Judgment). Judaism and Christianity have a special place in Islam. Jews and Chri...     Learn More ››








Geography of Islam

Islam is a world religion, by which we usually mean that it is found in most major places and among most peoples throughout the world. Like other world religions, Islam has its own particular geography. When we speak of the geography of a world religion like Islam, we often mean two things. First, we mean, where do we find the religion’s followers? Where did the religion start, and how has it spread? These are historical and physical questions. Second, we mean, how is the world divided on the spiritual map of the religion’s believers? What land is sacred and what is not? These are question...     Learn More ››








Financial Feasibility Analysis

  yesterday at 11:41 AM

Financial feasibility analysis is the final component of a comprehensive feasibility analysis. For feasibility analysis, a preliminary financial assessment is usually sufficient; indeed, additional rigor at this point is typically not required because the specifics of the business will inevitably evolve making it impractical to spend a lot of time early on preparing detailed financial forecasts.

The most important issues to consider at this stage are total start-up cash needed, financial performance of similar businesses, and the overall financial attractiveness of the proposed venture.

Organizational Feasibility Analysis

Organizational feasibility analysis is conducted to determine whether a proposed business has sufficient management expertise, organizational competence, and resources to successfully launch its business. There are two primary issues to consider in this area: management prowess and resource sufficiency.

1. Management Prowess

A proposed business should evaluate the prowess, or ability, of its initial management team, whether it is a sole entrepreneur or a larger group. This task requires the individuals starting the firm to be honest and candid in their self-assessments. Two of the most i...     Learn More ››








Industry/Target Market Feasibility Analysis

  3 days ago (Tue, Jan 24, 2023 at 04:26 PM)

Industry/target market feasibility is an assessment of the overall appeal of the industry and the target market for the product or service being proposed. There is a distinct difference between a firm’s industry and its target market, which should be clearly understood. An industry is a group of firms producing a similar product or service, such as computers, children’s toys, airplanes, or social networks. A firm’s target market is the limited portion of the industry that it goes after or to which it wants to appeal. Most firms and certainly entrepreneurial start-ups typically do not try...     Learn More ››

One of the best things prospective entrepreneurs can do, throughout the feasibility analysis process, is get out and talk to prospective customers about their product ideas. Surveys, designed properly, can be an effective way of gathering information.

Product/service feasibility analysis is an assessment of the overall appeal of the product or service being proposed. Although there are many important things to consider when launching a new venture, nothing else matters if the product or service itself doesn’t sell.

Feasibility analysis is the process of determining if a business idea is viable. The most effective businesses emerge from a process that includes (1) recognizing a business idea, (2) testing the feasibility of the idea, (3) writing a business plan, and (4) launching the business. If a business idea falls short on one or more of the four components of feasibility analysis, it should be dropped or rethought. Many entrepreneurs make the mistake of identifying a business idea and then jumping directly to writing a business plan to describe and gain support for the idea. This sequence often omits ...     Learn More ››








ENCOURAGING AND PROTECTING NEW IDEAS

  6 days ago (Sat, Jan 21, 2023 at 12:14 PM)

In many firms, idea generation is a haphazard process. However, entrepreneurial ventures can take certain concrete steps to build an organization that encourages and protects new ideas. Let’s see what these steps are.

1. Establishing a Focal Point for Ideas

Some firms meet the challenge of encouraging, collecting, and evaluating ideas by designating a specific person to screen and track them—for if it’s everybody’s job, it may be no one’s responsibility. Another approach is to establish an idea bank (or vault), which is a physical or digital repository for storing ideas. An exa...     Learn More ››

Let’s look at some specific characteristics shared by those who excel at recognizing an opportunity.

1. Prior Experience

Several studies show that prior experience in an industry helps entrepreneurs recognize business opportunities. For example, evidence over time about the founders of firms appearing on the Inc. 500 list shows that well over 40 percent of those studied got the idea for their new businesses while working as employees for companies in the same industries. This finding is consistent with the findings of research studies the National Federation of Independent Businesses' ...     Learn More ››

The
first approach to identifying opportunities is to observe trends and study how they create opportunities for entrepreneurs to pursue. The most important trends to follow are economic trends, social trends, technological advances, and political action and regulatory changes. As an entrepreneur or potential entrepreneur, it’s important to remain aware of changes in these areas.

IDENTIFYING AND RECOGNIZING OPPORTUNITIES

  1 week ago (Wed, Jan 18, 2023 at 10:28 AM)

Essentially, entrepreneurs recognize an opportunity and turn it into a successful business. An opportunity is a favorable set of circumstances that creates a need for a new product, service, or business. Most entrepreneurial ventures are started in one of two ways. Some ventures are externally stimulated. In this instance, an entrepreneur decides to launch a firm, searches for and recognizes an opportunity, and then starts a business, as Jeff Bezos did when he created Amazon.com. In 1994, Bezos quit his lucrative job at a New York City investment firm and headed for Seattle with a plan to find...     Learn More ››

Four Primary Characteristics of Successful Entrepreneurs

1.
Passion for the Business: The number one characteristic shared by successful entrepreneurs is a passion for their business, whether it is in the context of a new firm or an existing business. This passion typically stems from the entrepreneur’s belief that the business will positively influence people’s lives.

Passion is particularly important for both for-profit and not-for-profit
entrepreneurial organizations because, although rewarding, the process of

Why Become an Entrepreneur?

  2 weeks ago (Mon, Jan 16, 2023 at 12:50 PM)

The three primary reasons that people become entrepreneurs and start their own firms are to be their own boss, pursue their own ideas, and realize financial rewards.

• Be Their Own Boss: The first of these reasons—being one’s own boss—is given most commonly. This doesn’t mean, however, that entrepreneurs are difficult to work with or that they have trouble accepting authority. Instead, many entrepreneurs want to be their own boss because either they have had a longtime ambition to own their own firm or because they have become frustrated working in traditional jobs.

What Is Entrepreneurship?

  2 weeks ago (Mon, Jan 16, 2023 at 12:22 PM)

The word entrepreneur derives from the French words entre, meaning “between,” and prendre, meaning “to take.” The word was originally used to describe people who “take on the risk” between buyers and sellers or who “undertake” a task such as starting a new venture.

Inventors and entrepreneurs differ from each other. An inventor creates something new. An entrepreneur assembles and then integrates all the resources needed—the money, the people, the business model, the strategy, and the risk-bearing ability—to transform the invention into a viable business.

Attaining that long-term goal may seem overwhelming or too distant. There
is a simple solution: now that you have a vision of where you ultimately want to be, you can start to set smaller short-term goals in order to stay on track. Plot your course of action by writing down the immediate-term things you need to do in order to attain your long-term goal. Be honest with yourself about the obstacles that will stand in your way, and you can begin to methodically eliminate them one by one. No immediate goal is too small as long as it helps you move toward your long-term vision.
