Multiple rewards with one action

May Allah reward all those who helped. You have given $1314 through paypal/chipin and $100 by check. If you still want to help, we are looking to build a website for “Islam for school teachers” to service any requests for these DVDs (instead of going through public libraries).

مَا نَقَصَتْ صَدَقَةٌ مِنْ مَالٍ
Sadaqah never decreases wealth

-Authentic Hadith collected in Sahih Muslim

DateDrive of شعبان of 1431/July-Aug 2010

Type of DateDrive: Half a date or a pleasant word (financial and word of mouth)
Country: US & Canada


There is a Muslim school and masjid in the inner city of Los Angeles that is in dire need to pay for their teachers, the principal and water/electricity bills for both the masjid and school. They have an urgent need for $6000. However, you can’t donate to them directly through this drive, why? Because we want to encourage YOU (Muslim) to explore some other Sadaqah venues. What about the school and the poor teachers? Well, a group of brothers will cover school’s need inshaAllah, IF YOU & other HalfDaters accomplish the goal of this drive: Donate a DVD of “Creative Kids: Stories written by Muslim kids” to your local library. Help native children after school program. [This part is postponed because their event is in October]

How Multiple Rewards?

  1. The DVD content is written by Muslim children; and it’s time for us to encourage our children to develop their talents in terms of storytelling and writing skills.
  2. Dawah through stories is a good way to share our Islamic values. Here is a sample about fasting.
  3. This DVD title is professionally produced by a revert couple. We need to support their Dawah work and buying a DVD and spreading it is the least we can do for their contributions to the Ummah.

Drive Deadline: Aug 15

Drive Target: Distribute 100 DVDs.


  • Ask your local library if they accepts DVD donations. If they do, ask them for the procedure. If public library doesn’t accept, you can donate one to an Islamic school or gift it to a non-Muslim school teacher.
  • If you are in the US, the wholesale price of the DVD is $10 plus $6 shipment for up to 3 DVDs that fit a priority envelope.
  • For outside the US, buy the DVD at
  • Post a comment stating which library that you have donated. Click here to leave a comment.
