We Are Fundraising For YEMEN
Assalaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullaah.
My husband and I have teamed up (under Bromley-By-Bow Ikhwah which is his group in our community) to raise funds for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. After coming across pictures of severely malnourished children, bones clearly visible behind crumpled, shrivelled skin, all I could feel was sadness, and extreme guilt. And every time I look at the same pictures, I still feel heartbroken and guilty. When do we ever worry about our own children going without food? Never. When our children are sick, we have easy access to clean water to hydrate them, and medicine to grant them some relief.
The children we see with just bones on their bodies are no longer able to eat normal food anymore. They are hospitalised and dependent on medication to sustain them. This is our chance to Help others before their situation and bodies turn into the same.
We know the hadeeth about the believers being like one body, if one part feels the pain, so too do the other parts. And Rasūlullaah (s) also said “..Every Muslim is a brother to a Muslim, neither wronging him nor allowing him to be wronged. And if anyone helps his brother in need, Allaah will help him in his own need and if anyone removes a calamity from (another) Muslim, Allaah will remove from him some of the calamities of the Day of Resurrection and if anyone shields (another) Muslim from disgrace, Allaah will shield him from the disgrace on the Day of Resurrection.”
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
Allaah tells us.. “O you who believe! Spend of that with which We have provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zaalimoon (wrongdoers)”
So this wealth which we hold firmly in our grip, belongs to Allaah in the first place. Something to remember.
We urge you to never stop giving in charity. And help us raise funds for food, water and cholera kits for our brothers, sisters, and children in Yemen. May Allaah forgive us for our negligence, protect and raise high the status of our suffering Ummah, and reward us for the goodness which we act upon. Aameen.
