Ramadan Mubarak! SimplyIslam’s management, staff, teachers and volunteers wish you Blessed Ramadan. May the Blessings of Ramadan bring to our hearts the Love of Allah and His Beloved Messenger, and may Allah shower upon you and your loved ones a most wonderful, joyous and blessed Ramadan, Ameen.
Alhamdulillah, the Holy Month of Ramadan is fast approaching. Insha’Allah, it shall be a time of spiritual renewal as we make efforts to increase our spiritual devotions through prayers, Qur’an reading and good deeds.
Ramadan is also a time of giving, as Prophet Muhammad once said, “It is the month of charity, and a month in which a believer’s sustenance is increased.”
For the fifth year running, SimplyIslam is organising its annual Ramadan Charity Basket program. This year, SimplyIslam is pleased to continue its support for the Muslim Kidney Action Association (MKAC) and the Ang Mo Kio FSC (AMK-FSC). Insha’Allah this year we are also reaching out to needy Muslims through Masjid Darul Aman, a Mosque that is located just a few hundred metres from SimplyIslam. And for the fifth year running, the Ramadan Charity Basket event is supported by the “Solidarity Brothers” biker group.
The MKAC is a registered charity and has been in the forefront of providing care and support to Muslims who are suffering from kidney failure and chronic ailments and providing financial assistance to their families. The AMK-FSC runs three family service agencies which provide family and welfare services to residents of Ang Mo Kio and Seng Kang housing estates. Masjid Darul Aman is not just a place of worship, but it also organises educational, social and welfare activities to support the Muslims residing in its vicinity.
Insha’Allah SimplyIslam hope to raise $25,000 to provide food provisions and financial assistance to some of MKAC, AMK-FSC and Masjid Darul Aman’s needy welfare recipients. The food provisions include rice, milk, sugar, dry foods and other basic amenities including Eid novelties. The distribution will Insha’Allah be done on Thursday 9 August 2012, from 10 am onwards.
Let’s reach out and help them in their needs for Ramadan and Hari Raya (Eidul Fitr), Insha’Allah. Your donations would bring much needed relief for the poor and needy. You may donate through any of the following means:
