this may be silliness, i dont know really. but i started a new website....just a little page with information about islam. well i wanted the input of different muslims on the site, i even added a mens page but i needed men to write for me. just short articles. anything. any topic.
i just needed a little assistance.
main thing is im a revert (convert), and i needed the input of ppl that were a little more knowledgable than i am. so i asked several ppl, nearly everyone offered me a reason why they couldnt. a few reasons were legit..truly they were. some said they would and never came through. some offered really lame reasons. it doesnt take long to write a short article. something simple. but for the most part i was IGNORED.
hmmm maybe ive had a stroke and accidentally asked for money instead of an article.
anyway, noone is obligated to help me do anything and i did start the website. but i just know how i am.......if someone asked me to help them i would jump on it, actually i would be honored that they thought enough of me to ask lol.
i feel frustrated as not one single person has come through. and i thought, as muslims, we were all supposed to give dawah. i really (perhaps im naive) thought at least a handful of ppl would be interested.
i do have to give it to one lady though!! i went to a forum that i visit from time to time and asked for help with a few articles and a member did pm me offering to help. alhamdulillah and inshallah. thanks to that lady.
i know ppl are busy but i am too.......but we should all set aside 10 mins to offer ourselves for the sake of God.
i just feel a little let down i guess. but ill finish it, no matter how long it takes.
