Join Us this #GivingTuesday to Spread Islamic Knowledge 

Assalamu alaikum Seekers,

#GivingTuesday is just around the corner and we really can’t wait! This global act of solidarity and coming together is taking place on the 29th of November.

We need each one of you to participate. Every donation counts!

https://seekersguidance.org/donate/

We’ve come a long way together this year, but our work is not over yet:

Through your generous support, you’ve given 40,000+ new seekers free access to our courses this year and empowered 600+ qualified scholars and students to spread Islamic knowledge.

With your help, we hope to raise $100k on #GivingTuesday to continue giving seekers the right to learn, students the tools to become certified, and scholars the support to teach. This is because we believe accessing Islamic knowledge shouldn’t be a luxury.

This upcoming #GivingTuesday please:

TELL your story- Take two minutes to fill out this form and share the impact of SeekersGuidance on your life
DONATE to SeekersGuidance and the Islamic Scholars Fund
SIGN-UP to become a monthly supporter
SHARE our end-of-year campaign with your friends and family

When sharing with family and friends, we suggest setting a personal fundraising goal of $500 in pledges of support from family and friends. You can ask fellow students, co-workers, relatives, friends, etc. to each give $25-$50 to this cause.

Held every year on the last Tuesday of the month, Giving Tuesday offers us a chance to counter the pervasive end-of-year commercialism with a spirit of generosity and goodwill.

Your donation in any amount will help us fulfill our new vision of expansion for SeekersGuidance, one built around the preservation and dissemination of reliable Islamic knowledge, seekers’ circles, and critical issue seminars.

Assalamu Alaikum [Name],

Today #GivingTuesday is flooding causes worldwide with generous donations, and I’m writing to ask you to donate to an organization that is near and dear to my heart: SeekersGuidance.

There is one weighty crisis that only a select few will attend to today; our crisis of knowledge and faith arising from the lack of qualified Muslim scholars and reliable resources for Islamic learning.

Because SeekersGuidance believes that accessing Islamic knowledge shouldn’t be a luxury, they are committed to never charging a fee for their courses and programming. That’s why they are in need of our support today.

As a student of their free online academy, I benefit greatly from the reliable knowledge and guidance they offer.

As an act of appreciation and support for the beneficial Islamic knowledge they’ve blessed me with, I am aiming to raise $500 by the end of today to help support the website, programs, podcasts, and courses I attend and appreciate.

Your donations to SeekersGuidance are Tax-Deductible in the U.S. and the Islamic Fund has a 100% Zakat disbursement policy: www.seekersguidance.org/donate

Please give generously! May Allah reward you abundantly in this life and the next.
