Sadaqa distribution for Jan 2013.

Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakatu.
All praise is for Allah alone.

Alhamdulillah we have had another busy month. Please note that all you have to donate to us is just £1 a week to help us make this possible. £1 is such a small amount for us but can make a huge difference when used to help those who need it.

Below is a brief description of exactly how your donations benefit so many Subahn'Allah.

A brother in Morocco has difficulty walking to the toilet so we managed to buy him a commode to make things easier.



This will be leaving the UK tomorrow (Sat) Insha'Allah and will be delivered as soon as possible to him in Morocco. Please note, we only paid for the commode, the sister who approached me is sending other items and will be paying the delivery charges from UK to Morocco. Items like this are very expensive there and are not easily available Subhan'Allah...

Our second project is winter food packs.





We just started off with two food packs which were aimed at the elderly and it was to see how they were received by the recipients. Because of the recent cold spell and the snow we thought it would be a good idea to help them just in case they were unable to get out.





To some of us, this may not seem difficult getting to the shop but one sister is 81 and she was so happy to accept this pack. In the event that it snows again then she is happy to know that the food is there to nourish her and to keep her healthy.

                                                       

We are still trying to raise the much needed funds for a Masjid in Germany who urgently need to re pay a debt. You can read about it from the link below

As per usual our monthly commitments were cared for. Alhamdulillah we are sponsoring 5 Orphans.
Two children in Gaza, One in Morocco, Sudan and Syria.

Update 10th Feb 2013

In October 2012 we collected funds to have blankets distributed in India for those living in freezing conditions. These are the recent pictures of those blankets being given to many in need Alhamdulillah.





Such a small gift but with great benefit Subhan'Allah



A child in India with Thalassaemia.


What is Thalassaemia?

Thalassaemia is the name we give to a group of related conditions. These conditions affect haemoglobin - the substance in our blood that carries oxygen around our body.
Some conditions are more serious than others. The most serious forms are called beta thalassaemia major and alpha thalassaemia major.  Although it is possible to live with treatment for beta thalassaemia major, alpha thalassaemia major is not compatible with life.

"Spend (in charity) out of the sustenance that We have bestowed on you before that time when death will come to someone, and he shall say: "O my Lord! If only you would grant me reprieve for a little while, then I would give in charity, and be among the righteous." - The Noble Quran, 63:10 

We also send a small amount each month to help pay the rent for the family of Abu Tauba.
You can read about his unfortunate situation on the following link and you may donate directly from there too Insha'Allah



The school for the needy children in Bangladesh is still in need of donations. We try to give them a small amount each month but they need so much more. As soon as the brother travels back I will add some updated pictures Insha'Allah.











We are supporting a widowed sister in Morocco with two children. She lives in a shanty town and is so grateful to you all for your monthly support. Two other  families also whom use your monthly donation mainly to buy much needed medication.
An elderly sister, also in Morocco who lost her only son is trying to support herself on the farm she lives on so we give her a monthly income too, as well as buying her enough food for a month approx. Also a divorced sister with two children living in Gambia who has no financial help from their Father and is struggling day to day to provide for them, we give her a monthly income too Alhamdulillah







     During Ramadhan we supplied this family with enough food for the duration of  a month. Unfortunately they have been struggling to pay their rent. They were at one stage threatened with eviction and the landlord did forgive the rent owed at that time, but last month they were in problems again so we paid for a months rent Alhamdulillah.













And lastly but not least we are raising funds on behalf of Sahara for Life Trust based in Pakistan.
They are in need of an ICU Ventilator for their Sughra Shafi Medical Complex.

DON'T DELAY GIVING IN CHARITY

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once had several coins that he asked his wife to distribute in charity. But due to the Prophet's illness at the time, she did not have an opportunity to give out the coins. When the Prophet learned of this, he asked for the coins, placed them in his hand, and then said: "What would God's Prophet think if he were to meet God, who is Great and Glorious, while (still) possessing these?" - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 586
The Prophet also said: "Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 589 

Just £1 a week is all you need to give.....

Urgent appeal for funds for a Masjid.

Update 15-09-13

Alhamdulillah I just had the news that this Masjid project is now complete. I will try and add some new pictures Insha'Allah.
Jazakum'Allahu Khairan to all who gave.

Updated 27-10-13

These are the pictures a spromised that I just recieved from Germany Subhan'Allah














Please note: We only helped raise some funds for this, all the hard work was done by the sr who approached me and her family too Masha'Allah.


Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakatu,

All praise is for Allah alone
We are in urgent need of funds to help repay a debt for a Masjid project in Herford Germany.
Below is the building they purchased which was previously a night club. The community had borrowed 30,000 euros from a German lady which they knew but unfortunately she has now returned to Allah. Her family are demanding that they repay her money now and have started legal action against them to recover the money. They gave them until the end of January to pay it all back and as you know it is now the start of February.

Update 4th Feb 2013. This is the international payment details for the Masjid to pay donations direct. 

 Account  Name:Islamischer kultur verein e.v.
Bank Name: SparKase Herford  
Iban number: DE38494501200101002715  Bic number WLAHDE44x x x 







Work is well underway

As you can imagine, if this debt is not re payed now this will have a detrimental effect on the whole community. Below is a letter from Mayfair Islamic Centre in London who have verified this need as they know the brothers personally Alhamdulillah.









We all know the virtues of one, building a Masjid and two, helping to re pay the debt of another.




On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who said, ” Whoever relieves a believer’s distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter. Whoever alleviates [the situation of] one in dire straits who cannot repay his debt, Allah will alleviate his lot in both this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever conceals [the faults of] a Muslims, Allah will conceal [his faults] in this life and the Hereafter. Allah is helping the servant as long as the servant is helping his brother. Whoever follows a path in order to seek knowledge thereby, Allah will make easy doe him, due to it, a path to Paradise. No people gather together in a house of the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying it among themselves, except that tranquility descended upon them, mercy covers them, the angels surround them and Allah makes mention of them to those in His presence. Whoever is slowed by his deeds will not be hastened forward by his lineage.” (Recorded in Muslim)



The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Among what continues to accrue for a believer of his good works after death are the following: knowledge that he learned and then imparted to others, a pious child whom he left behind, a copy of the Qur’ân that he bequeathed, a mosque that he built, a guest house he built for travelers, a river that he made to flow, and charity he spends from his wealth when he is in good health – all of this continues to avail him after his death.” [Sunan Ibn Majah and Sunan al-Bayhaqî – and graded as good (hasan) by al-Albânî] 
Please do give as much as your able and your reward is with Allah
You can donate either through Paypal to mekkaouis@yahoo.com or direct  to their bank. I will add the details shortly once they are confirmed Insha'Allah and please share this with all on your Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and all the social media sites so we be of those who relieved the hardship of so many Subhan'Allah.
