Assalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullah my dear respected brothers and sisters.
I trust this note finds you and your families safe and healthy by His Grace and Mercy and makes the most of these special days and nights in this blessed month.
The illustrious companion Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) informs us of the prophetic character of love, service, and generosity when he describes the Pearl of Creation by saying, "The Prophet (peace be upon him) was the most generous of people, and he was most generous during Ramadan." (Hadith, Bukhari)
In the spirit of this prophetic generosity, I am writing to invite your support for the Al-Madina global community. By Allah's grace, we have grown into a global community of men, women, youth, and children from all walks of life. This reminds me of the community of the Ansar that welcomed the Beloved Nabi (peace be upon him and his family) when he and his companions (Allah be pleased with them) made their migration to Madina. They, too, were a community of men, women, youth, and children from all walks of life, and with the help of the Ansar, they came together to build one of the most critical communities ever to exist; and they built it with the ethos of love and service.
Al-Madina is looking for Ansar (helpers) to help us continue to nourish our global community with knowledge and spiritual sustenance, and we hope you will be one of them. Help us spread love and service to our international community that reaches from New Zealand to the West Coast of the United States, with countless countries in between. Please help support sharing the prophetic legacy of love and service through knowledge and practice.
In this path, Al-Madina has launched its "Love & Service" fundraising campaign:
Zakat : almadina.org/zakat
Every contribution of any amount will have a massive ripple effect of Khair, insha’Allah . It will support people of knowledge who are transforming lives across continents, one heart at a time, with those individuals and families, positively impacting others, all by His Grace and Mercy. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) said, ‘(O people!) Save yourselves from the Fire even if it is with half a date, and if you cannot find that, then (save yourselves by saying) a good word’. [Muslim]
May Allah bless you and your families with beautiful blessings in this month and protect and safeguard your households, materially and spiritually.
Please keep the entire Al-Madina community in your thoughts and prayers during this auspicious month and beyond.
