Alhamdulillah we managed another 2 food packs for families in the UK.
Here is a pic of one which the sr bought herself and we paid for (all receipts are seen by myself) and she managed enough to buy gas and electric too as this iis a constant struggle too, sometimes having just a few pence left.
Sahih International Do they distribute the mercy of your Lord? It is We who have apportioned among them their livelihood in the life of this world and have raised some of them above others in degrees [of rank] that they may make use of one another for service. But the mercy of your Lord is better than whatever they accumulate. 43:32
By Allah I just got a call from a sister who received a food pack from us. I have known her and family since our children were in primary school which is about 10+ years. She told me that, before we reached her she had no food in the house yesterday to feed her and her children Subhan'Allah. Look how Allah provides so much provision that we don't even know Subhan'Allah. We see year in year out many people sending their donations 'back home' as it were and I know there are many many needs around the world as we do these projects abroad too but, we also need to get rid of this misconception that people living in the UK have benefits at least so how can they be struggling. By Allah I know this sister has been for numerous interviews despite having a small baby and has been put under extreme pressure to look for work and I also know the debts that she has amounted since Subhan'Allah. My reason for this post is to make people aware that our neighbours have rights over us too, She has never once came to me and said I have no food please help, so please keep a check on families beside you, esp the single Mums who live on peanuts. I will post her message to you all when I can Insha'Allah.
Alhamdulillah we just finished delivering the food packs for ramadhan.
Subhan'Allah one family donated the entire food collection, another sister the dates and a third sister donated many toiletries.
Alhamdulillah we also have enough for our families in Morocco too. We will buy some meat for them also bi ihdnIllah,
Alhamdulillah more donations
Jazakum'Allahu Khairan to the family who have donated so much food Subhan'Allah
Alhamdulillah we now have enough for all the families in the UK and Morocco Subhan'Allah.
Below are a couple of pics of the food so far, we will add meat, chicken and dates too bi Ihdnillah
Alhamdulillah so far we have raised enough for our UK families but have a shortfall of £120 for those in Morocco. Please help if you are able.
Subhan'Allah in the recent months we have become aware of families in the UK who have been facing hardship with debts and basic living needs, as well as many families in Morocco without enough food.
Like for like is our next project to help feed families with the same foods that we eat ourselves so that they too may receive the nutrition needed throughout this truly blessed month.
How much do you spend on food during this blessed month, how much do you then throw away too Subhan'Allah.
We are doing just 4 food packs in the UK for 4 different families that we know personally and will also be collecting donations for a few families in Morocco bi ihdnillah.
Remember these families from previous ramadhan and/or food pack projects
Alhamdulillah the little that we do can bring so much happiness and relief to these families for such a small effort. Please join us by donating the price of just one meal of the same value that you will spend on your own family Insha'Allah. Like for like is for us to give others that we would love for ourselves and our own family. Remember.....
On the authority of Abu Hamzah Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) - the servant of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) - that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said :
"None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself."
