  1. Assalamu’Alaikum, I am happy to announce that Half Our Deen Offline is finally coming to the UK! Baba Ali will be in UK and will be hosting an Exclusive Singles Event on Sunday 8th November 2015 in LONDON! The event will take place at a private location that will only be revealed to the confirmed paid attendees. You know how Baba Ali values your privacy. Are you worried about the event being boring, scary, a waste of time, etc? Let Ali give you a sneak peek inside. Click on this image ----------------> and watch Ali's video on what makes Half Our Deen Offline so special. HOD Online also has had over 800 members find their other half on their website www.halfourdeen.com! Check out their testimonials there (and you will find our story too :D). Need more information on our events? Check out the information below: Only 80 seats available so reserve your spot TODAY! What exactly is HOD Offline? Half Our Deen Offline is an exclusive event and the only way to get a seat is by invitation. Once an interested person completes their registration for Half Our Deen Offline, their answers will be reviewed. If approved, they will receive an invitation and instructions to complete their payment to reserve their seat at the event. Approval is based solely on the responses we receive to the survey. The goal is to only invite those who have a real chance at finding a match at the event. For example, if you are looking to marry someone between the ages of 35-40 and the majority of those who fill the survey are under 35 attending would be a waste of your time and money. In order to keep the event organized and balanced, seating is limited and based on a first-come basis. How does one Register for the event? Fill out the survey ( www.hodoffline.com/register) to sign-up for the event. All registrants will go through a filtration process to determine the likelihood of finding a compatible match at the event. Once HOD determines the compatibility ratios for all registrants, they split them into groups based on who they are likely to find compatible . They then send out invites to those who made it to the final list of brothers and sisters who they believe will have a high chance of finding a match at this particular event. If the invited do not pay within the time specified to reserve their seat, the next most compatible registrant is sent the invite. Register early to ensure you get in. What happens at the Event? Instead of just playing musical chairs like other events, Half Our Deen Offline takes a revolutionary approach at Muslim Matchmaking by engaging people in fun and interesting activities. You will experience an innovative and intelligent way of interacting with others in a natural environment. The creative activities make for a comfortable atmosphere where you can be yourself and learn how others interact with you in a relaxed setting. HOD makes it simple, less stressful and most of all FUN! The HOD Offline staff keep you entertained and are readily available to answer any questions you may have. Spots are limited so make sure to grab yours before they are gone. JazakAllah Khair, HOD Offline Events Team, www.hodoffline,com
  2. The Qur'an is the sacred text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the word of God revealed to the final messenger - Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Never did he imagine this day would come. By day he would work hard to support his family, he didn’t have much but would always patiently perservere, putting his trust in his Lord. By night, he would rise earlier than others; the cold water that he used for Wudhu would help awaken him. He stood night after night, alone in the dark, praising and glorifying his Lord. His heart and soul longed for success on this day. Indeed it had come, through the mercy of Allah, Paradise was to be his home. The Prophet of Allah (may peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Allah said, ‘I have prepared for my pious worshippers such things as no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard of, and nobody has ever thought of.’ “ Abu Huraira added: If you wish you can read: ‘No soul knows what is kept hidden (in reserve) for them of joy as reward for what they used to do.’ “ 32.17.
