Please remember that the success of our Ummah, depends on individuals like YOU.
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ
“Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves.” [Ra’ad 13: 11]
Yes, many of you may argue that it was an artificial goal with an artificial deadline. But the lesson learned is: 1- Never have a wishy washy target 2- If you don’t feel the urgency about the conditions facing the Ummah, they will remain artificial to you.
May Allah forgive our sins and wake us up to help ourselves.
You + HalfDate = Done, in-sha-Allah.
Month: Rajab 1429/July 2008 (end date July 27th)

If you don’t want to read… watch this:
You are about to make history…
to cultivate HalfDate.com into
the BIGGEST Sadaqa “driver” on the Internet.
YES, YOU! But with the help of your lord, the most powerful, Allah.
Your lord who told Ibrahim (peace and prayers be upon him and his family):
The call is on you, and the delivery is on us.
Your lord who made an unlettered person Muhammad (peace and prayers be upon him and his family) into the greatest teacher in history.
But, why do you need to help?
Because you want to. You like to earn the pleasure of Allah, and you want to make a difference in the Ummah. And with HalfDate, a difference is made every Hijri month, alhamduillah.
What if you don’t help?
The Ummah loses. You lose. HalfDate loses… because we are about to run out of juice.
So far, HalfDate’s core team has only one programmer and one promoter.
But, in-sha-Allah, with your help, you earn more rewards with exciting projects, such as Ramadan quiz site, Halal loan fund, awareness campaigns about Muslims around the world, and you get to accomplish BIG FAT projects like this appeal.
Ok, Bismillah, I’m in. Now what?
In this DateDrive, you will invite others to join HalfDate mailing list.
Notice the deadline is July 27!!!!
Anyone who believes in this hadith:
اتقوا النار ولو بشق تمرة
“Save yourself from the (Hell) Fire even with half a date (to be given in charity). And if you do not find a half date, then with a good pleasant word.” – Collected by Al-Bukhari
