The date/time is not saving on the Raspberry Pi. I have tried to use the config tool that came with the OS but it does not save after reboot. I have also tried the "Date" command but it does not save either.

I would really appreciate your answers.

Modern computers keep time across reboots using a Real Time Clock (RTC) combined with a small lithium battery. The Raspberry Pi does not have such a clock. If you want to have accurate time, you should use chronyd for network time or manually set the time after each boot.

:P Ah! It was surprising :)

@hedayat - you had the right command for a manual update; I'll make the question a wiki for you to add to it

Thanks. I thought that I should remove my answer since it was not relevant for Raspberry Pi. :P And thank you for the karma raise, but I still cannot see any edit buttons on your post.
