ما من مسلم يقرض مسلما قرضا مرتين إلا كان كصدقتها مرة” – صحيح الجامع”
“No Muslim lends another Muslim twice, except it will be like Sadaqah once.” – Sahih AlJamee

Drive Target:

  1. Getting 7 people each give $500 loans for 6 months and 7 people each give $500 for one year, to help:
    1. A US women shelter/food bank to purchase a truck ($1000 needed)
    2. A Canadian medical “doctor” who graduated and is applying for practicing license in the US (he had some hardship and needs a $4000 loan). You are going to send most of the money directly to the school. Click here for more info
    3. A Malaysian family who is having hard time to feed their children because they are in debt to haram loan “sharks” and needs $1000. (pending her proofs)
    4. A Finnish needy Muslim. (her local community covered her need)
  2. Three local groups of Muslims to form a Qard club and collect $500 (want to encourage personal Qard Hasan in your local communities). Once your local groups are formed, please post a comment.

To participate, post a comment (your email won’t be public) and we will contact you. Please answer these three questions: 1- How much can you lend ($500 or $1000)? 2- For how long (6 month or 1 year)? 3- For which project (women shelter or medical student)?

HalfDate assumes no responsibilities. Both borrowers have their personal guarantors and will pay you back with monthly installments.

Canadian “Doctor”

“I know this brother personally and he is a good person, honest and trustworthy. He was studying to be a doctor in the US, but sadly his Dad ran into financial troubles and his Mom had a stroke. Due to financial constraints he is unable to pay his fees to do his final exams and clinicals. He has been looking for a halal Islamic loan from a Muslim who he could sign a contract with and pay back. So far he has only gotten no’s from his local community when he has asked them for help.” -A community member of this brother.

He can pay back around $250-$300/ month inshaAllah, starting in February 2010.
