PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING US:
WHY SUPPORT MYISLAM.ORG?
(اَلسَلامُ عَلَيْكُم وَرَحْمَةُ اَللهِ وَبَرَكاتُهُ)
Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
I want to share some statistics of behind the scenes stuff of running My Islam.
Everyone starts at zero.
We are no different, for a long time we were sharing Islamic content to a ghost-town. We had a very small audience but we consistently showed up for them and overtime it just naturally grew.
Now, you probably want to support things that are worth supporting (big surprise) so instead of telling you I want to show you why My Islam is a worth while cause.
This pandemic a lot of things were shut down, but we ramped up. This Ramadan we sent out a lot of emails.
We are going to send out another 90,000+ Ramadan reminders in the remaining days.
Our free online digital Qur’an with transliteration and translation is close to being read over a quarter of a million times from January 1st until May 14th, 2020. We’ve helped combine for 12,737 hours spent reading the Qur’an.
Our content at MyIslam.org during Ramadan 2020 alone has been viewed by over 710,230 with majority of the visitors coming from India, United States, United Kingdom, Malysia and Pakistan.
During the past 22 days we published 18 new articles to our site and updated 8 existing articles (added graphics and expanded content to make it even more thorough).
It really is a blessing of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to see these numbers especially considering we did this only with $400 of our own pocket money and some time.
We like to view ourselves as building a virtual masjid which is not limited by geography as we can unite Muslims from all across the globe.
We are currently working on an e-book with downloadable audio files for Duaas of the Prophets mentioned in the Qur’an. Regardless of the amount, all those who have supported My Islam either monthly or one-time will receive a copy once published.
The one thing we are embarrassed about.
The one thing we know we could do a better job at is posting consistently on our YouTube channel which has generated 52,700 views in last 28 days but we only posted four videos this entire Ramadan.
So to fix this we have hired brother Sahraoui from Morocco who has a beautiful voice and In sha allah he we will be helping us post daily duas from Qur’an and Hadith.
Abu Dharr narrated that the Messenger of Allah said :
“Your smiling in the face of your brother is charity, commanding good and forbidding evil is charity, your giving directions to a man lost in the land is charity for you. Your seeing for a man with bad sight is a charity for you, your removal of a rock, a thorn or a bone from the road is charity for you. Your pouring what remains from your bucket into the bucket of your brother is charity for you.”
Jami At-Tirmidhi 1956
We also want to show our appreciation to all those who reply to our emails, read our new posts and comment and share. We read every comment and email and listen to your feedback on how we can make MyIslam a better place.
