Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakatu.
May this post find your Ramadhan full of barakah and righteousness and may Allah accept all our efforts for His sake alone. Ameen
We have made a pledge via UKIM to donate £500 towards the re build of masjid Bilal in Gaza.
It has been very badly damaged and we felt that we could be help be a part of this amazing form of sadaqa jariyah.
Update 23rd July 2013
Alhamdulillah we exceeded the £150 needed for a food pack so we also donated towards 50 cooked Iftar meals for the Syrians in Jordan via Islamic Help.
Jazakum'Allahu Khairan to you all.
In a Hadeeth (narration) on the authority of Zayd ibn Khaalid Al-Juhani he said that the Prophet said: [At-Tirmithi: Hasan Saheeh]
We did this in support of Islamic Help so anyone can donate directly to them but the reason we do it is to give eveyone the chance to participate in a whole pack. By asking you for £3 etc it makes it possible for anyone on a low income to also donate to us until we reach the amount needed.
These are the Ramadhan food packs they provide
And we also paid for the 50 iftar meals although this is the receipt
