The Africa Federation Youth Network (AYN) launched the poetry competition on 28th October 2014 which was kindly sponsored by Al Haj Murtaza Kanani of Nairobi and Spiritual Journeys. The winner of the competition would be awarded a free Ziyarat Trip by Spiritual Journeys. Also the top 5 Poets would be aired on Safeer TV and IBN TV.

The deadline for submission of the same was extended to Thursday 1st January 2015 due to public request whereby entries were closed. 
The Judging of the competition was done by Sheikh Nuru Muhammed – Resident Aalim of Nairobi Jamaat, with the help of another Judge for the French and Urdu entries. The panel took 2 weeks to finalize the selection, and the judges had a judicious task using the following criteria.
