Charity Shop

What is the Charity Shop

Muftisays.com has been running many services for 8 years on a voluntary charity basis for the benefit of the general public. We have been making it by with the prayers of Ulamaa, the Muslims and generous support from our advertisers. With server costs and other bills, we have made donating fun and meaningful with this charity shop.

Everyone has things at home or in the office that is either taking up space, unwanted or simply extra. Many of us throw things away without a second thought. Who hasn't heard the phrase, "one man's junk is another man's treasure"? - What may be junk to you could be important to someone else. They will purchase it elsewhere anyway if needed.

With this charity shop service, you can get rid of the things you don't need, someone else can benefit with a bargain and most of all, the entire amount is used as a fund raising method for our services and future plans.

This service is FREE.

How it works

If you have a normal account on muftisays, you can simply click at the top "Donate Item"

  1. Add your item with images and you're done
  2. Potential buyers will bid for the item with no reserves specified (default reserve only for each item - very small amount)
  3. Buyers bid on the item for 14 days from the first bid (subject to change depending on traffic)
  4. Once the bidding term ends, the item is awarded to the highest bidder
  5. You then send your item and the full postage cost is refunded to you

Wsalam,

Jazakallah for providing ideas. That's already there after one has won the item. Slightly different but pretty much the above

It might be better to make people register their card details first and then bid otherwise we could have bogus bidders

wsalaam,

Adding card details won't really help as the payment is accepted through paypal. However, there is a procedure where if the item winner takes longer than a given time, it's awarded to the next highest bidder and if he/she was the only bidder then the item goes live again and that user will be disabled.

Hopefully there shouldn't be any bogus people on this inshaAllah as it is literally a charitable cause.

Do you mean as pets or to add to the charity shop?

If it's to the charity shop then yes Halaal animals are okay but only pick up option will be available unless special carriers can be found.

If the above question was a question for the Q&A section then:....
Please post questions such as the ones posed in this topic to the Ulamaa. Or click here for a vast library on islamqa.org. Alternatively, you can get support locating available answers online in the Q&A Support section of this form here
