Barakah Dates Project

As salaamu alaikum!!

2 years ago some of you helped donate money to buy books and dates for Masjid Naim in Pereria, Colombia, alhamdulillah. Now we have a bigger project in mind, to raise money to buy dates for a few masaajid in South America and the Caribbean inshaAllah.

Barakah Dates Project is a non-profit organization collecting donations to purchase and ship dates to South American and Caribbean countries for Ramadan 2010!

Why is this so important? These countries do not import dates, and on top of that, the majority of these communities are too poor to even afford dates. Imagine never tasting dates before?! Dates are an essential part of Ramadan, let's share them with our beloved brothers and sisters, inshaAllah! Don't wait for the blessed month to arrive to start your sadaqah!

DONATE HERE using PayPal account OR credit/debit card:

Follow the project's blog:

Contact us for information on how to mail a check or money order.
Feel free to collect donations in your masjid/community/MSA!

Check out this video - the initial inspiration for the project, alhamdulillah!

I'm sorry i dont know how to contact you on your blog or email you personally,
but i was inspired by your blog, and have started my own
but i made a huge mistake, and i'm sorry
i named my blog Is It Halal Canada
and i realized right AFTER i clicked yes, that it was stolen from you
i am so sorry!
and another, i want to start my blog to review products that are unique to Canada to help my fellow Muslims, i was hoping you could give me tips & what to ask companies when i contact them
It will be greatly appreciated any help you are willing to give Brother, Jazak-Allah.
