As-Salaamu Alaikum! Peace be upon you.

This page is to help answer some questions I'm sure you have about this podcast, this Patreon thing, and what they have to do with you.

First, let me explain why I'm doing this podcast.

A lot of people have a lot of things to say about Islam and Muslims. And most of it is not good and most of it comes from people who are not Muslim.

We also Muslims also do not have much in the way of entertainment. Sure, there are a lot of great Muslim speakers and definitely some great poets and artists.

But it's rare to find high-quality, Islamic entertainment from Muslims that also educates. And that's what I hope the Islamic History Podcast to be.

I want to show the complexities and intricacies of the history of Muslim people from all over the world. And I want to do so in a fun and entertaining way.

Some of our history is tragic and some of it is divisive. But there are lots of heroes, villains, and ordinary people in Islamic history that have contributed a great deal to the world we live in today.

And this is a story that needs to be told and not just as another Islamic lecture.

Q. Who are you?
A. Muttaqi Ismail. I'm an American Muslim living in the Atlanta area who loves history, Islam, and podcasting!

Q. What do you do?
A. Well, since I love history, Islam, and podcasting, I decided to put them all together and create something awesome: An Islamic History Podcast.

Q. Why am I here?
A. Hopefully you're here to help support this effort so I can create more high quality, engaging podcasts about Muslims and Islamic history.

Q. Why do you need my help?
A. I have a conflict. I love history and making podcasts about Islamic history. But I'm also a bit of a perfectionist. It takes a long time to create one episode. I would love to hire some part timers to assist with the research and production of this podcast.

Q. And...
A. And...if I can get some help in here, that means I could create podcasts on a more regular basis.

Q. That's cool, but what's in it for me?
A. In addition to getting these great podcasts regularly, I'll also give you access to the full archive of Islamic podcasts I've done over the past 3 years. That's well over a hundred episodes.

Q. How much do I have to pledge?
A. We have different pledge tiers, but the lowest pledge is only $1 per month. If you're feeling really generous, you can pledge as much as $30 per month. The rewards get better, the more you pledge.

Q. So you're going to give me over a hundred Islamic podcast episodes, and amazing Islamic history podcasts on a regular basis for only $1 a month?
A. That's right.

Q. That's amazing! Where do I sign up?
A. Just click that big ol' orange button near the top of the screen and you'll be on your way.
Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per month
If you pledge as little as a buck a month, you'll still get a boatload of value.

You'll receive full access to my entire archive of Islamic podcasts.

These are all of the podcasts I've done over the past three years (and there are quite a bit).

These podcasts cover topics such as:
  • History
  • Islamic studies
  • Quran
  • Current events
  • Relationships
  • Seerah
  • ..and much more.
Pledge $4 or more per month
You'll be subscribed to an exclusive podcast called...Islamic History Exclusive.

In addition to that you'll still receive full access to my entire archive of Islamic podcasts.
Pledge $8 or more per month
At this level you'll not only receive access to the archive and be subscribed to the exclusive podcast, but I'll mention your name (or kunyah) within the show.

Just my way of giving you a little shout out.
Pledge $15 or more per month
Now you're really cooking with grease!

If you pledge $15 per episode to the Islamic History Podcast, you will get the following:

  1. Access to the archive
  2. Subscribed to Islamic History Exclusive
  3. Your name mentioned on the show
  4. And I will answer your question related to Islam or Islamic history on the podcast.
So if there was any burning question about past events in Islam that you wanted answered, this would be your chance.
Pledge $30 or more per month
This is the Granddaddy of them all.

At this level, I've gotta do something special.

You'll definitely get the rewards of the three lower levels including:
  • Access to the archive
  • Your name mentioned on a show
  • Your Islamic history question answered on a show...
And finally...I will create a podcast episode on the Islamic history topic of your choosing.

This would require a rather audacious effort on my part, so I'm going to limit the number of pledges at this level.

So this is a first come, first serve deal.
Goals
50% complete
Upon reaching this goal, I can hire researcher to help with the preparation of the show. This will free up more time for me and give you a better overall experience.
