Muslim community has high connectivity with the help of modern technology and social media. This access has strengthened the unity of the committee by allowing activities of sharing information easy. However, this approach has its flaws and issues, for instance, deliberate misinforming, slander, inconsistencies and fraudulent news. These issues, if not controlled, will pose as a threat and liability between the Muslim community and its local institution (mosque and surau). Therefore, a standardized, secured and exclusive platform is needed to allow information to be disseminated properly with zero suspicion and high accessibility to all its intended audience. This study aims to create a website builder for mosques and suraus with a secure and standardized platform for the local community to use with ease. With the website builder, it aims to connect and bring together the Muslim community with the provision of a proper platform for the local Islamic institution to disseminate information to its community. In this paper, findings from multiple data sources of survey, interview and direct observation are reported. The study revealed common perceptions and design features of a website and its builder to be developed. Future work will focus on refining the design features and collaboration with Islamic Institution like Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor (JAIS) of Malaysia.
