Do we accept zakah contributions
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

Beloved brother, although the moderating of this humble forum requires a lot of time and effort on the part of the brother volunteers, the honest truth is that it does not require a lot of fundsand with the Mercy and Grace of Allah Subhanah the brothers and sisters who volunteer their time and their efforts in moderating this forum are able to fulfill the small financial cost which is needed to keep the website in motion.
As much as we appreciate your noble gesture brother, it is the policy of the brother volunteers who moderate this humble forum never to accept even an iota of material gain or any worldly benefit for themselves for their efforts; the sustenance provided by our Lord Most Bounteous is more than sufficient for us, and it is in Him and Him Alone from Whom we seek our rewards. In utter and absolute humility and fear, we hope that our Lord Most Gracious will accept our humble striving in His Cause, forgive us our severe and several shortcomings in the striving, bestow His Mercy upon us and overlook our sins, and save you, us, and all the believers from those unbearable and everlasting clutches of the Fire of Hell.Ameen.
Your Statement: To make myself a part of it,
Respected brother in Islam, if you sincerely wish to make yourself a part of our humble team.then help us in helping further the Cause of Allah Subhanah.first and foremost by making dua for us that The Lord Most Gracious bless us to continue serving in His Cause until the very last ounce of breath is left in our lungs.and secondly by forwarding the articles from the forum to as many people as you possibly can so that the wise Guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) may reach as many amongst mankind as possible.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
