Taking donations from people to start off a business

Q: My question is can I take donations from others like how it is shown on this web site www.indigogo.com and start my business?


A: We do not advise you to take donations from people. However recite the following dua after your five daily Salaah. May Allah Ta’ala assist you and bless you with halaal rowzi.

اَللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِيْ بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
