    Salamualaikum. Just a question, why does Halfdate need $300?

    • http://halfdate.com admin

      wa alaikum assalam,

      Thank you for asking, please provide your email for replies.

      Maybe you are new to HalfDate, but a few months back we have posted that HalfDate can no longer sustain itself. So to keep it running, we have adopted a “pay it forward” method. The beneficiary of the current drive pays the expenses of next drive and so on.

      HalfDate is in red now, we don’t ask for donations, we just want volunteers to promote (that’s the most time consuming task and the biggest expense). On average, each dateDrive takes over one hundred hours from pre-drive to post drive.

      Here is a rough itemized cost to run a drive:
      Mailing list software: covered by HalfDate
      Hosting: covered by HalfDate
      Domain names: covered by HalfDate
      Facebook ads: $90/month
      Graphics work: $50/month
      Editor: $50/month
      Copywriter: $50/month
      Outsourced promotion: $200/month (paid to needy students or families)
      Mailing cost: covered by HalfDate
      Phone bills: covered by HalfDate
      Internet: covered by HalfDate
      Other software: covered by HalfDate
      Administration time: covered by HalfDate

    This is all I can afford as my finances are still pretty bad. I did this on behalf of my mother in law who has taken a turn for the worst. May Allah swt give her complete cure ameen. And may Allah swt forgive her for her sins and make her transition in to the hereafter easier ameen.

    Alhamdulilah I decided to put in my small part for this drive. I’m very low on money these days as a full time student, but I hope insha’Allah this small amount that I gave for the sake of Allah helps the Dawah and HalfDate. I love Halfdate and the DeenShow. Both of you keep up the great work insha’Allah!!

    Take Care

    Ma’Salaama

    May Allah (SWT) bless this drive Insha’Allah. I hope those who are able to provide for this drive will do so, and that those who cannot will contribute even the smallest they can. Insha’Allah! Ameen.

  • Mustafa

    Jazakum Allah khairan for your efforts in spreading the message of Islam, may Allah make this material beneficial for both Muslim and non-Muslims. Videos are one of the most influencial means of Da’wah and indeed a great blessing, so many people learn about and accept Islam through watching these videos. That was one of the main causes for my own conversion to Islam, and all praise is for Allah.

  • I BRAHIM BOUZIDANI

    assalamu alaikum

    ai want just to remind myself first, and my brothers and sisters with the following verse
    مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللَّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ وَلَهُ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ ﴿الْحَدِيدَ١١
    which means, (who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan? for (Allah) will increase it manifold to his credit, and he will have (besides) a liberal reward)

    may Allah reward you brothers.

  • Anony Money

    May Allah accept from all those involved and all those who contributed. Just a reminder to keep our intentions purely for the sake of Allah and not for any worldly benefit.

    Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.
    [16:125]
