UK appeal. A tin a day keeps their hunger at bay.



All Praise is for Allah He is The all Knowing, All hearing.




Update 2-7-14

Alhamdulillah we have completed this project as we combined it with the ramadhan food parcels that were delivered recently.

Jazakum'Allah Khairan to you all

As we all know, and should be preparing for, the beautiful month that is Ramadhan is soon to be upon us. Some of us will be doing extra deeds, some will even be preparing their menu in advance but, are you aware that there is a vast number of families in the UK who are also living from day to day, not knowing how they will feed their families, how will they keep them warm in the winter months.

Alhamdulillah that we have a benefit system in place. Most poor countries do not have any such thing but, with the recent benefit caps, homelessness and hardship, many families are having to go to food banks, are being evicted from their homes as they can no longer afford the rent excess. 
We know of sisters who are being forced to look for work even though they have babies and children Subhan'Allah and the hardships they are facing.

We have at least four families in our community who we know are facing such hardships and will be preparing them a food pack in time for the start of Ramadhan Insha'Allah.

An example of the contents will be Dates, Porridge, milk, Lentils, Rice, Chick Peas, Tinned Tomatoes and Sugar amongst other items.


To help relieve the hardships of these families you can either make a cash donation of any amount your able from £1 via Paypal to mekkaouis@yahoo.com or, if you are local to us in London SE we implore you to buy a tin a day or a bag of rice a day and keep aside in time for Ramadhan. We will then distribute it to the said families Bi IhdnIllah. 





By Allah we are very aware that there are so many poor, hungry families around the world who will be facing the same hardships day after day, year after year and we ask you to continue to support all those who need it but, we also ask you to remember that our neighbours and those in our community have a right over us too.
We must strive to meet their basic needs as much as we are able. Even if you do not donate to us with food or money, ask around your local community and you will be surprised just how many single parents, families are goign without the basic necessities. Maybe they need nappies, gas, electric etc. Let us not always assume that because we are in the UK we are ok.

Jazakum'Allahu Khairan for your continued support. May Allah relieve the hardship of all those who are suffering. Not just in Ramadhan but all year round.

Remember, there are about 68 days left before Ramadhan so plenty of time to stock up

Fi amanIllah  


"He who relieves a hardship of this Dunya (this earthly life)
for a believer, Allah will relieve a hardship of the Day of
Resurrection for him; he who makes it easy for an indebted
person, Allah will make it easy for him in the Dunya and
the Hereafter; he who covers a Muslim (his mistakes and
shortcomings), Allah will cover him in the Dunya and
the Hereafter; Allah will be in the slave 's need, as long as
the slave is in his (believing) brother's need…"
 
[Saheeh Muslim]
