All praise is for Allah alone.
Subhan'Allah throughout our lives we may meet and benefit from an array of different sisters.
Some we will bond with from day one, some we may never see again and some, we may bond with but never actually meet in Duniyah. That is one of the many treasures of this perfect deen of Allah.
Since starting this project in 2010 I have been blessed with many generous sisters (and brothers who give but we have no contact) but it's not just about how much or when they give. It amazes me all the time how Allah brings souls together for His sake and the beauty of real sisterhood.
I have contact with some sisters via Whatsapp for some time now whom I have never met but each one of them touches my heart in many ways Subhan'Allah.
The reason for this new post is firstly to say Jazakum'Allahu Khairan to each and everyone who gives fi sabil Illah, whether it be £1, £10 or £100 it means a lot to have that trust between us even though you may not know me.
The second reason that inspired me is the passing of sr Maria Zain.
I personally did not know of her but by His Mercy her kindness has shone through from others who have written some very touching words about her a s a person.
She returned to Allah (with His permission ) as a shaheed as she died while giving birth to her 6th child.
The Malaysian Community of Nottingham are raising funds to send Marias children to malaysia to be cared for by extended family. I am sure you will see that this option would be of much better benefit than staying here.
