Chicken and Chips or Sponsor an Orphan...x

Update 23 June 2012.

All Praise is for Allah, whom has made this possible.

Alhamdulillah we are now sponsoring an Orphan from Sudan.
We have paid for a years sponsorship and I ask Allah to accept it from all of us and that it be a means for us all to reunite in Jannah Firdous. 
Subhan'Allah it's such a small thing for us to do but with huge reward bi'ihdnIllah. I will post a bit of info when I receive the details but it won't be any pics or name, just the basic info for us to read.

Please join us and do this again fi sabilIllah. We could all easily donate  £5 until we reach £300 again, and continue this on a regular basis. It's the least we can do for our future Ummah and £5 covers you for a whole year of sponsorship.
It's easy to spend our income on wasteful  things,why not purify your wealth  and help us support all those children who are facing such hardships and poverty.

What more could we want......

Update 10.50pm.

Alhamdulillah we have now exceeded our request of £300 to pay for a year sponsorship for an Orphan. Subhan'Allah, Allah is truly The Most Merciful. Without His permission this would not have been possible.
Any donations over the £300 needed will go towards another Orphan in Morocco. We will be sponsoring an Orphan  Insha'Allah but will pay on a monthly basis, so anyone else wanting to donate then this is what it will be used for.
Jazaki'Allahu Khairan to you all. May Allah accept it from all of us. Ameen...

Assalaamu alaykum,

All Praise is for Allah The Most High, The Most Merciful.

With the way food prices are going up, chicken and chips will soon be costing us £5. £5 for something that will last 5 minutes, eaten and forgotten. With that £5 you could join me and sponsor an Orphan  for a whole year. I am looking for either 60 sisters to donate just £5 once a year or 30 sisters to give £10 once a year.

How can we, as an Ummah keep sitting back, watching shocking videos/news of the atrocities and how much the children are starving and suffering, yet choose to do nothing.

Yes we feel for them, feel guilty for a short while, then forget. Forget that there are so many children all over the world who have no home, no family and certainly do not have chicken and chips everyday. Their shrinking stomachs could not handle chicken and chips as some have not eaten real food for so long
Together, we could help save the life of at least one orphan, one Orphan who, when we face Allah on a day when every penny we have wasted will be shown, this orphan sponsorship could be just the Sadaqa we need to tip our scales to the right.

We have done this before and I am sure bi ihdnIllah we can easily do it again. Ramadhan is just around the corner, what better time to start now, to achieve this in time for this blessed month. we can start donating now and be ready to make a one off donation of just £5/£10 to pay for a whole year of sponsorship before Ramadhan starts. This will secure an income for a child for the next year Insha'Allah.

I know some of you may think that you could easily visit a website and donate yourselves but, that will cost you £25 a month alone or £300 a year. By us doing this as a group, all it will cost you is £5 for a whole year, yet all the time getting the reward of sponsoring for a whole year.

 Ummah Welfare Trust guarantee 100% donation policy so we will pay them a one off payment of £300 and they will provide us with all the details of the child, their current situation and all the necessary information.
I alone know that I cannot afford £25 a month so this is a beautiful opportunity for us all to not only help a family struggling but also knowing that we are doing something that will please Allah and He will reward us accordingly for our intention to help for His sake.

  "I and the caretaker of the orphan will enter Paradise together like this, raising (by way of illustration) his forefinger and middle finger jointly, leaving no space in between." [Saheeh al-Bukhaari]

Why, for the sake of a mere £5 a year would we not want to take advantage of this golden opportunity to do something so blessed in islam.

How can we, look at these pictures and not have the passion to want to give them a hug, a decent meal and  love Subhan'Allah. These are NOT the pictures of the real orphan that we intend to sponsor but, as you can see from the picture below, they are real children, with real poverty yet all the while smiling Masha'Allah. A lot of children now days with their Playstation, ipod and computers would not have a sincere smile like this at all, except maybe when we go and buy them a new game for £50. Once played, to be thrown on the floor and complain that they do not have anything....

These children sift through someone else's rubbish to find plastic and metal to sell for a few pennies which will then maybe buy them something to eat.

please, please, before you go and waste that £5 on unrewarding food or duniya items, think, will this give me any benefit in the next life? If not then please click on donate now and give fi sabil Illah. Give, before a time comes when it will be too late. Too late to turn back time.

This short video has some very inspiring true stories of how some, choose to help others all the time and how passionate they are about doing it. Masha'Allah there is a gem inside about how the Brother gave fi sabil Illah and the outcome of his kindness.

Sahih International
They ask you, [O Muhammad], what they should spend. Say, "Whatever you spend of good is [to be] for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it."

This enjoyment is only temporary and has no real benefit in the next life
whereas, sponsoring an orphan has the benefits in this life and the next
Even if you are unable to give £5, give what is within your means for Allah's sake, to please Him alone. He is the only one who can accept the little that we do. 

Any good has come from Allah The Most Great, any mistakes are from myself...

Fi aman Illah.
