Save Our Channel!
Asalamualaikum Brothers and Sisters,
Due to recent youtube changes we are facing huge problems with our channel, we can no longer cover the channels running costs due to a massive decline in revenue.
This is a screenshot from our channel showing the decline which has hit all of our videos.
Each video we produce costs hundreds of pounds depending on the length, our longer videos can even cost thousands due to the cost of footage, So we rely on our YouTube revenue and donations to continue producing high quality content, the recent youtube changes have caused our channels earnings to decline by nearly 75%! which will make it nearly impossible to continue our work without help.
Our educational Islamic content has always been family friendly, educational and inspirational for muslims and non-muslims all around the world!
We have already produced over 1000 videos and reached more than 200 Million viewers worldwide!
We have never promoted any kind of hate speech on our channel. but rather we have always spoke out against hate! and promoted peace through the understanding of Islam.
we are currently reaching a staggering 8 million viewers a month with our videos!
and we are estimated to reach 1 Million subscribers by Ramadan, this will make us the very first Islamic channel in the world to achieve this.
but as we said... the recent youtube changes have caused a massive revenue drop to nearly all islamic content on YouTube, and these changes make it very difficult for us to continue producing content.
Of course we will never stop our work no matter how hard it gets, but it will mean less videos, less viewers and less growth due to the financial struggles we are currently facing.
But with your help we can still turn things around and build something bigger and better even at this time of hardship!
The sad reality is that youtube could decide at any moment that Islamic content is no longer suitable for it’s platform! we have been working and producing videos on YouTube for over 5 years now and have experienced many changes during this time which have hit our channel hard... last year our views were crushed by new youtube changes when our views decreased by 50% overnight and now the current changes are making it difficult for us to even continue our work, the problem is when we speak to YouTube they give us automated responses showing us that there is no real care or support to help us or to understand the problems we are facing and because of this we think it would be wiser for us to have an alternative place for our viewers to avoid risking what we have spent years building together.
Alhamdulillah we have started to make plans to build our own islamic platform as a secure back up plan (seperate from youtube) to protect Islamic video content online!
Your donations here will help us build the new platform which will be safe and secure! an independent video website and app for our viewers without any ads!
You will have the ability to watch and download all our videos! and even the ability to listen to (audio only reminders) when you are travelling.
All extra donations will go to video production costs to continue running and maintaining our channel to the highest quality.
In sha Allah we plan to launch by this Ramadan!
So we are asking anyone who has benefitted from our channel to help us at this time of need, by making a small contribution towards this campaign.
We have come so far already with all the support from our viewers and the help of Allah!
Alhamdulillah we are estimated to reach 100 million viewers this year alone! and with your help we can and will continue to grow and deliver the message of Islam and protect islamic content online, so it cannot be unfairly removed just because someone has an opposing view!
The reward for helping to spread and protect the message of Islam is beyond measure!
The Prophet (saw) said, "The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his Charity." [Tirmidhi: 1925]
