I am just going through my old emails trying to catch up and update you all on our past projects. JazakAllah Khair for your kind donations! This is not possible without Allah's Mercy and Barakah, so All Praise belongs to Him.
When the devastating floods hit Pakistan in 2011 it tore apart communities, housing and stability. We were fortunate, with outside donations to raise £800 for a house build in Pakistan.
Imagine, your whole life washed away in seconds, you are left with no home, no possessions and not knowing where you and your family will live from then on.
As part of the Ummah at the very least we can donate enough to provide one family a roof over their heads, give them some comfort in the knowledge that they have shelter, warmth and safety.
With your £4 a month this is made possible with the permission of Allah.
Our lives, in comparison to some is a complete luxury. We may think we have it hard Subhan'Allah but looking at the lives of others who do not have the same opportunity for help and support that we do should make us really feel grateful to Allah for all that He has given us.
Are you able to open your front door and enter a warm, comfortable home, open your fridge and always have enough to eat for the week/s ahead.
Turn on your flat screen TV, satalite, dvd player or computer. All these things are materialistic but we take so much for granted.
Our health alone is a blessing, our families and our wealth.
Tv's and computers come and go, but imagine your Mother, Father or child being washed away in the tide, how then would you cope, knowing that you also have no home to return to.
We are no longer collecting donations for this project, it is merely an example of how for your £4 a month can help.
£1 a week Subhan'Allah is all it will cost you. With the correct intention, this £1 could be all you need to tip your scales on a day when you will wish you had given so much more.
Think and reflect about where your life is heading. Giving sadaqa is a means of purification for us.
Believe in Allah and His Messenger and spend out of that in which He has made you successors. For those who have believed among you and spent, there will be a great reward. 57:7
And why do you not spend in the cause of Allah while to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Not equal among you are those who spent before the conquest [of Makkah] and fought [and those who did so after it]. Those are greater in degree than they who spent afterwards and fought. But to all Allah has promised the best [reward]. And Allah , with what you do, is Acquainted. 57:10
Need I say more except, Alhamdulillah for All of the blessings that He has bestowed on all of us whether we see it now or in the next life.
May he accept our humble efforts for His sake and should you join us or not then please remember us all in your sincere duas.
Fi aman Illah.
