£1 for 10 days for a widow in Morocco...x

Update 29/11/12

Alhamdulillah we are now in a position to help this sister from Morocco on a regular monthly basis. As I mentioned, she has a small cleaning job but barely makes enough to support herself and children. Please continue to give as regular as you are able so we can keep this ongoing as long as possible bi ihdnIllah.
May Allah reward you all for helping us support the people that we do fi sabilIllah.

Firstly All Praise is for Allah The Most Merciful the Most Kind. Without His permission our efforts are not possible.

As we all know, tomorrow (Wed 17th Oct) will be the start of the most blessed 10 days of the year Insha'Allah.
We are each giving just £1 a day throughout these 10 special days, to give a widowed sister some relief from the hardship she is facing.

Among the special seasons of worship are the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, which Allaah has preferred over all the other days of the year. Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2/457).

Allah has blessed us with so many provisions that we sometimes fail to appreciate them. Alhamdulillah we have food, clean water, heating and electric amongst many other everyday things. We may see pictures of many families in need all over the world and feel sorry for them but do we really make an effort to try and change their lives. Imagine the hardship of having children and not knowing when or how we will provide the basic needs for them. Having no food to make breakfast when they awake, let alone lunch and dinner Subhan'Allah. We know of a widowed sister in Morocco who has 3 children to care and provide for since the death of her Husband approximately 2 years ago. They live in a shanty town and have  very little help from others. The sister cleans houses to make a minimal amount to survive.With the winter months fast approaching and we are able to turn on our luxurious central heating, they will be spending the winter months in a small wooden/tin hut for a house. Alhamdulillah they at least have this but imagine how cold it must be, how unsafe for a Mother to live in this situation. How hard it must be to not have enough food to provide for your family.
Please join us and give as much as your able for Allah's sake and lets help give them a special Eid, and a life where they will not have to rely on handouts from others and a life of security, knowing there are others out there who truly care for each other. Please make your sincere intention and click on donate today. I say today as we do not know if we will survive to see tomorrow. Let's not miss out on an opportunity to do good for His sake.

 This is not the real picture but as similar as I can get until I get some pictures of the sisters situation as soon as possible Insha'Allah

"So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it,
And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it."
[al-Zalzalah 99:7-8]

There is much to be gained, so make the most of the opportunity afforded by these invaluable and irreplaceable ten days. Hasten to do good works, before death strikes, before one can regret one’s negligence and failure to act, before one is asked to return to a place where no prayers will be answered, before death intervenes between the hopeful one and the things he hopes for, before you are trapped with your deeds in the grave.
O you whose hard heart is as dark as the night, is it not time that your heart was filled with light and became soft? Expose yourself to the gentle breeze of your Lord’s mercy during these ten days, for Allaah will cause this breeze to touch whomever He wills, and whoever is touched by it will be happy on the Day of Judgement. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and all his Family and Companions.
