As-Salamu alaykum wa rahmatullah dear brothers and sisters in Islam. I have now added a donate button to the site which allow others to donate through pay-pal. Donations will be used for website maintenance, to translate books into other languages such as Spanish and French, shipping to distribute free books to prisoners and to those interested in Islam, and also to fund further projects. May Allah reward you all for your service towards his cause and the cause of Ahl ul Bayt (as).
