Proposed Drives

Please vote for one of the following polls (when you vote, it means you will help to raise the money).

A disclaimer: HalfDate lent some money to some needy families and they can’t pay back the loans. So, in a way, you are helping us to continue HalfDate service. So, if one of these drives got selected, we will take what they owe us and give anything extra to them (if their condition still qualifies for Zakah or give to some other needy families).

Which drive you want HalfDate to run next?

DriveFruit: Warm Winter Fruit 2/3

This is the result of Warm Winter DateDrive.

The following is an email from Sister Nadia of Women Affairs of AMH, Inc regarding this family.

As salaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.

May this message reach you in the best of Iman. We have taken the remaining balance of the donations to her and took pictures of her and her children Boy 5 months and Girl 2 or 3 years?

Her husband was in school at ITT Tech and he is doing fine we believe he won an honored scholarship from ITT and they are making sure that he finds a good job insha’Allah (God willing).

Sister Jasirah is very grateful and expressed the negative she had gone through with the Ummah locally when seeking assistance. We had to reassure her, not everyone is negative and what everyone has done for you with the help of Allah is what we as Muslims do for one another.

This is our duty for one another. So have no worries pray, do the best you can, be the best Muslimah that you can be and be patient and all kind of doors will be open for you and your family. Allah has just given you a sign when you thought you had no help.

She did call and left a message insha’Allah you had received it.

Salaam.

Nadia A.McIntosh
