MAWLUD & EID-E-ZAHRA A.S.

We wish all of us joyous and happy both Eids in these Blessed Days, celebrated all over the world.

Tarpaulins appeal and distribution (size 4 X 5 mtrs) :

We appealed for Tarpaulins for these poor and earthquake affected families.
Alhamd…. We have so far received 24 tarpaulins whereas we need many more in order to help our own African Community. Their sizes are 4 X 5 mtrs and heavy duty ( long lasting).

Please kindly help us with more so that we can be able to help these families.

Each Tarpaulin costs approx. 19.5 US $

Please kindly see some of the poor and affected families:

Now how can we distribute these 24 Tarpaulins to all these? Whom to give and whom not to give? Indeed very difficult situation. Therefore please kindly do assist us so that we do not delay in distribution as long rains are already pouring in our Region/Town.

One lady died with her child hugged:

One of our Darsa lady died with her child hugged. We went there and recited Sura-e-Fatiha.
She was trying to get out, when upper wall fell on her and was buried under wall, our volunteers were informed and got her body with child in her arms.

These are not street food stall ( dhaba):

One might think these are food sellers in the streets, very sad to say that our Darsa Ladies and their families are staying in these during the day and night !

Few photos of destroyed houses:

We have many photos of destroyed houses, but just to put few otherwise this newsletter will be highly loaded.

The situation remains the same except few minor repairs from what we have been able to help them.

Earthquake families still living is worst conditions ( AFTER 2 MONTHS…):

We have tried our level best to help our own African Community with whatever we can like mostly cash so that they can do little by little repairs in their broken or shaken houses due to earthquake that shook our town on 10th September 2016.

We have tried to visit few of our own African families, indeed its heart burning situation to see them still in this worst condition.

Our own adherents:

We have heard that almost every organizations have helped their group people example Missionaries of other Religions have helped their followers etc. Except our own African Community members are poor left ( though we have tried to give them whatever little we could).

Please kindly lets help them with whatever little from yourkindselves which is something great for them. It will be indeed great help even if can help each of them at least 100 US $. Yourkindselves can give whatever you wish, we will join hands and help them.

Consequences these families face as a result….:

These poor families have determined to join us as a fruit of our extensive Tabligh and approaches. But they are having very very difficult times within their own families. Many have been boycotted by their own husbands and other family members…. But still they come to us, they attend our Majalis, Azadari and also our Elder Ladies Religious Classes.

There are many ways we can help them:

We can help these families in many ways such as:

  • Sadqa money for their daily essential needs, medicines, children to buy school requirements like books etc. and assist them in paying their house rents.
  • Goats: Sadqa, Aqeeqah, Qurbani or Kaffarah goats for their meat supply. They cannot afford to buy this very very expensive item.
  • Food Ration Packages/Baskets: whenever possible we can help them with meat, rice, maize flour, wheat flour, beans, dagaa, salt, cooking oil, tomatoes, potatoes, onions
  • A set of even plastic utensils
  • Tarpaulins especially in these hard times when we are having long rain season.

This family case:

This family is 100% Shia and they are living little bit far from Township. They are 8 members in her family. Her 1 daughter is married to our Shia Sheikh and other children are still studying in our Hawza-e-Ilmiyyah.

It will be indeed very much pleasing if we can at least be able to help them in repairing work or construct a house for them.

She walks quite a long distance to attend our all Majalis and Azadari and also attends Elder Ladies Religious Classes…. Just walking because she cannot affard to pay for minibus or taxi.

Our School also suffered:

Our school also has been effected. Cracks, otherwise its safe except toilets and store rooms’ section has been effected with cracks.

We have Alhamd… tried to repair these damages buy constructing new walls and making new floors and erecting supporting pillars at the rear walls.


We have done much, though so much remains to complete school work.

DISTRIBUTION 11th DECEMBER 2016:

Alhamd… we have distributed assistance to our own poor African Community and earthquake affected families with:

  • Goat meat
  • Sugar
  • Tende ( dates)
  • Tarpaulins

We wish to help these families, but due to short of funds we are not able to help them the amount that can be helpful to them. They are facing so many problems/hardships that need money.

We are working on everything ON YOUR BEHALF.

We get some disabled ladies who also have families, come for our assistances.

Goats:

We select healthy ( not skinny ) and fit and big size goats that weigh between 13 to 15 kgs so that each goat can help about 6 to 7 families. After slaughtering and removing skin, we weigh each and every goat ( hardly other do by weight, many simply buy goats even of 6 or 7 kgs, and one of the reason is that they are not supervising or are not involved personally).
Therefore we request for each got 40 US $. When we want to give, we can always give something good or better if not best, and indeed we are giving for the pleasure of Allah swt.

Habil and Qabil’s offerings:

It should not be like what happened when Habil and Qabil, children of Hadhrat Adam a.s. when they put they offerings before His Almighty’s pleasure. Habil put best items while Qabil had put bad items. Allah swt accepted Habil’s offerings !

Cash assistance :

Unfortunately we have run out of cash to help them.
Everybody needs some financial assistance in order to buy few essentials including medicines, food, utensils, clothes and children books, uniforms etc.

We are sure yourkindselves can try to see what and what they need in these hard times.
We can help each and every family in our African Community whatever yourkindselves can help.

Alhamd…. We are trying to help these poor and helpless families from time to time especially in these hard times. We therefore kindly appeal for yourkindselves to help us with more goats of Sadqa, Kaffarah etc. so that we can keep on helping these poor families especially in these hard times. We can help over 200 families.

Food ration packages / baskets costs each approx. US 25 $

We can help these families with rice, maize and wheat flour, cooking oil, salt, beans, dagaa ( dried small fish), sugar, soap, toothpaste, tomatoes, potatoes, onion…. All these at just US $ 25 for each family per week at least.

About these families:

We have helped these families in the past, on how to make liquid soap, soap bars, disinfectant, shampoo, etc. etc. they have also obtained certificates but lack funds to start manufacturing these at home, though there is very good market of these items.

So far in these few days we have taught them on how to make Vicks vapour rub, mango pickle and school chalk making.

Next week teaching: SCENT STICKS

Note:

Somebody may think that we have so many accounts, therefore funds may be pouring from all corners, well its not the case. We are hardly getting assistance, lets say once in a while and
even that is for either specific purpose. And we cannot change the intended funds for any other work. Therefore please kindly do not have the notion that someone might have given/donated, please kindly help and you all get reports with photos of our all undertakings.

King’s story in brief:

There was a king who told his people to pour one cup of milk in a pond at night time. Everybody said that someone must have poured milk in the pond, so even if I don’t go it won’t make any difference. In the morning when king and all people came to the pond, were surprised to see either only little or none at all milk poured in the pond !
