Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakatu.
Update 3rd April
We were fortunate to purchase two tickets for the Sabeel course coming up in May 'Home Sweet Broken Home'. Two dear sisters will be attending this course and will give us some feedback to let us know how they benefited.
Alhamdulillah with your kind donations we have managed to cover our monthly commitments.
Our two monthly orphans from Gaza, a Palestinian sister with cancer, a widowed sister in Gambia, a child in India with a serious blood disorder and our 5 families in Morocco.
The majority of those who receive our help have to spend most of their sadaqa to pay for their monthly medication which is a necessity.
That's why your £1 a week donation is vital as without it we cannot afford to support the families that we do.
We also raised enough so far for 10 fruit trees and 1 Olive tree. As you know this will, bi ihdnillah be counted as a sadaqa jariyah
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); knowledge which is beneficial; or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (the deceased).” [Sahih Muslim]
Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “When a Muslim plants a tree, whatever is eaten from it is charity from him and whatever is stolen is charity and whatever is subtracted from it is charity”.[Hadith-Muslim].
These are just some of the certificates so far as we are waiting for the newest ones for the 11 trees Alhamdulillah.
The two sewing machines are an excellent gift opportunity as this will enable the user to provide for their family from the proceeds and the chickens also, as this will be an ongoing income for the families Insha'Allah.
Also we will have news of the tube well as soon as this is available. Your donations made it possible for us to have a tube well built in a community which will supply fresh clean water for 3 families for around 10 years.
From the five families we are supporting in Morocco, unfortunately one of them below we can only support every few months. They are living in very poor conditions. One son has had part of his leg amputated and another son has severe learning disabilities and spends most of his time in bed. The mother is a widow and sadly we do not have the means to help them on a regular basis. Some months we are able to give them an income and some sadly we are not. As you can see, they also need regular medication amongst the usual everyday needs but we cannot always guarantee to provide this. This is why I am urging you to please encourage others to join us. All they need to give is just £4 a month. Imagine, when you encourage others to good, you share in the reward of everything they give Subhan'Allah.
And lastly but by no means the least we managed to raise £462 for a sister who had no financial income and was struggling to provide even the basic needs for her children. We ask Allah to facilitate all her needs and ease any hardship she may be facing. Ameen
£1 a week is all it takes fi sabil Illah.
Remember that it is only with Allah's permission that this whole project is made possible. He is Al-Kareem.
I thank Allah first and foremost for giving us the opportunities to help those who need support and I thank every single one of you for your kindness and generosity in supporting this project.
Please remember us all in your sincere duas and continue to donate on a regular basis so that we may continue to give some relief to so many. Alhamdulillah for everything that Allah gives and for what He withholds.
Any good is from Allah The Most Merciful and any mistakes are from myself.
One off donations can be via Paypal above or please email me for bank details for a regular £4 a month payment.
