In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

Deadline refers to a particular time or date which something should be completed. [1]

Example: "The deadline is tomorrow and you are telling me this now?"

It is not to be confused with dateline, which is a line of text, usually at the beginning of an article or a news report, which shows the date and origin of an article.

Allah knows best.
