    Yes I think you are right. We could potentially calculate an amount we will need for the year 2019 (with a breakdown) and start raising for it now. It is definitely something that we will seriously consider in shā Allāh.

    Could you please resend that email to us, we may have missed it or forgot to reply. jazākAllāhu khayran

    My personal opinion is that the pop-up is not enough. You may be missing out on potential donors that visit the site and hold back on donating because of the lack of information*. For me, it's not just about transparency and respect for the donor, but also whether the organization has a vision and plan for how it is to be used so that I can have some assurance that it'll be used effectively and that I am giving to competent people. You have nothing to lose by providing the information on the site.

    Why not calculate how much funds are required in order for the Scholar to provide X number of hours over the course of a year answering questions? Same for the translator. This will be your 12 month target that you raise funds for and you put on the site. At the end of every 12 months you reassess.

    * I for one held back from donating in the past due to this; and an email inquiring went unanswered.

    We did do something similar last year but we didn't get much of a response. We are not linked to any Pir or organisation therefore we heavily rely on the donations of friends and ourselves.

    Why don't you send a WhatsApp message similar to the last post listing all the costs and some of the issues, guaranteed people will donate and you will get double the amount required.

    Assalaamu Alaykum,

    The funds are needed to help pay the Scholar for his time answering the questions we receive. It is not a large amount however due to limited donations we receive (majority of which are in the form of regular monthly payments from friends), eventually we will come to a stage where we will have no money to pay him as the donations equate to on average only £200-250 per month. We also want to employ a translator (from abroad to save costs and because we cannot afford a UK translator with the amount of donations we currently receive) on a full time basis. At the moment we have a few brothers who translate the answers in their free time but this is slowing things down as they are only able to translate around their own busy schedules. Other than that there are no costs besides the domain/hosting which are not much at all. Nobody else is paid or profits from any donations.

    The pop-up has been on the site for a while now, if in the future we receive more donations than what we require we wish to have the Scholar give more of his time to answer questions. That is why we have not put a target to how much funds are needed.

    Sorry I can't be more specific at the moment but anyone is welcome to email us further questions if they want specifics or see in person for themselves the incomings/outgoings. We have no problem with that. We have a record for every penny that has come and gone out.

    Hope that helps.

    It should state on the site what the funds are needed for, how much is needed and how much has been raised thus far. Sunni organizations should set a high standard of transparency when it comes to collecting funds from the public.

    the pop-up says they need funds to keep the website running; that would mean ISP hosting fees and wages for an IT administrator
