My card was not accepted

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your willingness to contribute.

Our payment systems rely on existing payment gateways Stripe and Paypal. Unfortunately we don’t have any control over which cards are accepted or not. There is little we can do if a card is not accepted by the payment gateways.

Stripe Accepted Cards

Our card payment option enabled by Stripe supports famous card brands like VISA, Mastercard and American Express depending on Location. See Stripe Supported Cards.

PayPal accepted Cards

PayPal accepts payments from VISA, Mastercard and American Express.

If you have entered you card details correctly, you have funds available and your card is open to making international payments of this type, it could be that your bank does not allow such payments for your card type or your bank has blocked the payment for their own reasons.

We apologise for the inconvenience and we ask Allah to reward you for your intention.

Can I pay using another method?

Unfortunately the available methods of paying via PayPal or Credit/Debit Card enabled by the stripe payment gateway are the only methods we are able to provide currently.

We don’t have the ability to support any other payment methods at this time. We also don’t have the facility for collecting payments in other forms at this time.

Is your payment system secure

The available methods of paying via PayPal or Credit/Debit Card enabled by the stripe payment gateway are both well known and respected and secure payment gateways. Stripe & PayPal are both secure payment gateways with PCI compliance.

All personal and card details are processed and secured by the payment gateways. Our website itself does not process or store personal or card/account details. This is why we have preferred to merely link to payment links provided by these secure gateways.

Have you received my contribution?

If you have received an email notification confirming receipt of your contribution whether directly from us or from PayPal, that should be sufficient to ensure you we have received your contribution.

You may need to allow for some time for your bank account to reflect transaction based on your bank’s timeframe for reflecting such payments. If you have made a payment using PayPal this should reflect immediately.

If you still require positive confirmation from us, please submit a query via our contact us page containing the exact same name and email address you used to submit your contribution. We will attempt to verify whether we have received your payment and reply with confirmation in-shaa-Allah.
