Urgent appeal for a family in Algeria.

Update 2-08-12

Masha'Allah Tabarak'Allah I just received some more pictures from the sr collecting for the family in Algeria. As you know we helped previously with donations to improve their living conditions which you can see below. We also sent a little more donations on the second visit and you will see just how much they managed to buy for Ramadhan and Eid etc. 

Here is a list from the sister with pictures too Subhan'Allah

Here is an update from Algeria about money given for the poor families for Ramadhan

 They bought 66 kg of dates macha ALLAH.
  41  food parcels to give for iftar so inch ALLAH you will get the reward of their fast.

 They also bought sweets to give to children
 and have been able to buy new clothes for the children.

AL HAMDULLILAHI the sister said that they have been able to buy lots of clothes with a bit of money and that Allah has sent His Baraka upon them mach Allah in this blessed month of Ramadhan.
Jazak Allah all  for your help and support.

Please scroll down for the latest pictures

Alhamdulillah here is a small list of items that the family have managed to buy so far with your donations.
  • 2 doors
  • 2  windows
  • 5 bags of concrete 50 kg each
  • Some bricks
  • 1 sink which they didn't have 
  • Some pipes for plumbing
  • Turkish toilet 
  • 2 gas bottle for heating

We now have a total of £695 to send to this family in Algeria. Please do continue to donate so that we may help them on a more regular basis Bi ihdnIllah.
All Praise is for Allah alone.

Masha'Allah, Tabarak'Allah £230 already in just an hour. May Allah reward all those who have given so far and may He accept it from all of us. Ameen

We have been approached by some dear sisters who are trying to raise funds for a family in Algeria. They are not only living in dire conditions but sadly the Mother has breast cancer and the Father has a heart condition. Subhan'Allah if you look at the pictures below and see just how difficult a situation they are in. 
There are 10 people living in the house with just one small window and they have a serious problem with damp. They are currently looking after another family members children as the father fell from a 4th floor window and died. The inside of the house is in need of some serious help and also they live on a hill which has a steep slope and a ravine at the bottom. We can only imagine how tough these conditions are and also with the added worry living on a steep hill. 


We can see the extent of the damp all over. Even at the head of their beds.

They are also trying to raise enough to buy the family a much needed fridge as you can see below they are in need of one asap

Imagine having old wooden doors as your walls, imagine just how cold and drafty this is. 

And also how steep the hill is just a yard from their door.

Beds are needed too

Bedding is all ripped and worn

A decent table is needed so they have somewhere clean to share and prepare food

This is the medication that the family need each month, all this has to be paid for aswell as needing so much more basic items. We have so much in our homes that we do not use while some have literally nothing.


Never will you attain the good [reward] until you spend [in the way of Allah ] from that which you love. And whatever you spend - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it. 3:92

By Allah, I know I have probably said this in my other posts but I cannot stress enough how important it is to help those who need it. A brother will be travelling to Algeria in January so I am urging you to please give as much as your able. Let's stop wasting our time and our money rushing off to the sales buying things we want, not what we need, and then never using it anyway. The shops and media etc use many tricks and tactics to convince you that you are getting a bargain when really and truly you are not. Why not give something up to help those living in dire conditions. These pictures are real and where not copied and pasted from Google. This is a stark reality for so many families all over the world. We are fortunate enough to be in a position to do something bi ihdnIllah. Even though it may be small to start off with your donations we can help this family have a better safer home. Remember the parents are both ill too so this is a stress and a strain each month finding money for medication let alone caring for the children and providing food and decent shelter for them.


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." 2:215

Please do encourage friends and family to give too so that we may give some dignity back to this family who need help. Jazak'Allahu Khairan for reading...x

                                         AND AFTER ALHAMDULILLAH

Subhan'Allah when you see the difference your donations make to someone else's life it makes you wonder just how much we take for granted. May Allah accept the efforts of all involved and may He allow us to continue with the little that we are doing for His sake. Ameen

Aid Convoy's 1000 blankets for Syria.

All Praise is for Allah alone without His divine Wisdom and Mercy we cannot succeed.

In Support of

Aid Convoy is a registered charity which started a project to buy blankets for our brothers and sisters in Syria. Each blanket costs just £6 so we decided to help generate much needed funds.
We set ourselves a small challenge to encourage as many people to give as much as possible to raise awareness to their plight. The response was amazing and still, Alhamdulillah offers are still coming in. Please share their links with all your contacts in as many places as you can fi sabil Illah.
Subhan'Allah we managed (with Allah's permission) to raise an amazing £2306 so far which is enough to buy 384 blankets. £545 was donated to the Aid Convoy bank, £1110 Islamic BT donate page generating an amazing £277.50 gift aid and the rest was donated via the individuals  from our challenge.

Below is some pictures taken from their Facebook page to see just how much effort they have made so far Subhan'Allah.

Also they have some events planned to help raise funds for up coming projects too. Below are the posters for this. Please attend if you are able and also encourage all you family and friends to give too. We could never really imagine just how difficult the situation is for so many of our brothers and sisters from all over the world and it's so important to thank Allah every single day that you are guided and that you are not in these harsh conditions. Who know's, but Allah if we were in this way would we be strong enough to remain steadfast, to keep our Eeman high Subhan'Allah. 

Update 13-12-12

Alhamdulillah we have so far managed to raise enough for 248 blankets so far. Please keep giving for Allah's sake to give some comfort to our brothers and sisters.

As some of you may know Aid Convoy is working hard to help our brothers and sisters in Syria who may have either no home or very little amenities. One of their projects is to raise enough to supply them with blankets to at least try to keep them warm in these freezing conditions. The target is 1000 blankets and they cost only £6 each and these will be hand delivered by Aid Convoy so you can be sure your donations goes to the correct need. They guarantee 100% donation policy and all those involved are un paid workers.
So far we at Al-Huriyah  have managed to raise and donate £1002 which will help them buy 167 blankets Alhamdulillah but, as you know, this is not enough.
Please give as much as your able and encourage others to join you fi sabil Illah.

These are not the actual blankets.

This is before the bombings

And this is now Subhan'Allah

your £6 can help keep someone warm bringing them a little comfort whilst facing such harsh conditions

That's all it takes.

Please give as much as your able for Allah's sake.

As an Ummah we have become so comfortable, especially living in the West, the horrors that our brothers and sisters are facing on a daily basis is something we can not even imagine. Yes we see the many videos and pictures but charities like Aid Convoy etc are seeing the reality first hand. Making dua for them is not the least we can do as some people seem th think, that is the best we can do as Allah is the only one who can help them and give them ease and comfort. I would say that donating is one of the least things we can do. When we have wealth it's very easy to be generous, making dua is worth more to anyone than wealth. But at least by supplying them with blankets this will give them some comfort.

I ask Allah to facilitate the needs of all the oppressed from all corners of the world, reward all those involved in these projects, may He answer their duas, give them patience, guidance and above all make them content with His decree as only He knows the wisdom behind All affairs. Ameen.

Fi aman Illah...x
