Assalamu alaikum warahmathullahi wabarakathuhu.
مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أَضْعَافًا كَثِيرَةً وَاللّهُ يَقْبِضُ وَيَبْسُطُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ (2:245)
- 2:245 Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times? It is Allah that giveth (you) want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return.
As you all are aware there was an appeal from Mrs. Rosy Senanayake for stationery for the poor children in the slums of Colombo. Almuslimaath has organised to give 100 packs consisting of stationery in a school bag for orphans of all religions and ethnicity.
Usually Almuslimaath does not publicize the donation functions; this is purely because Islam
prescribes secrecy in charity and not to aspire for people’s appreciation but to do all our good deeds only for the sake of Allah.
But, in view of the ethnic disharmony created in the recent times, this time we intend to donate the books for the children publicly just to inform the non Muslims that much charity is done by Muslim organisations for all the Srilankan community irrespective of religion, cast or creed. The function is planned to be held tentatively on the 6th of March in Colpetty.
Though we have prepared for 100 packs for now we would like to increase this to1000 orphans if possible.
Just imagine, a mere 300 rupees will give a child books enough for a year. Imagine for lack of 3 USD children not attending
school! If you add another 300 rupees we can give a school bag too. And another 400 rupees can buy them a pair of shoes too!
Would you like to donate at least for ONE ORPHAN? Just 300 rupees please…….
You can even come for the function and donate the books directly to the children in person too.
