Help Your Brothers and Sisters

Bismillah.

This is really sad. There are Muslim refugee families in Houston that are in the following conditions:

1- Families going without food for days.
2- Families who get eviction notices and are left on the street.
3- Teenagers taking the role of the bread earners.
4- Kids going in a state of depression.
5- Families 14 of them living in a 2 bedroom apartment.
6- Doctors, engineers (even PhD’s), and businessmen who lost everything and are trying to start their lives all over again at gas stations!
7- Widows crying out of thankfulness when they receive some aid.
8- Families giving up their religion because Churches offer them support in exchange of their religion!

Yes, this is in America! Don’t believe me? Watch the video below

A very good organization called Al-Amanah are trying to help get these families back on their feet. And our friends at HalfDate are having a drive to support Al-Amanah.

Please help the Muslim refugees by making a dua and posting it in the comments section on HalfDate (a sister will donate 1 Canadian dollar when you do so), blogging about it (someone from HalfDate will donate $5 for each post, just put a link in the comments section on HalfDate) or by donating as much as you can.

Remember that the Prophet said,

اِتّقُواْ النَّارَ وَلَوْ بِشَقِّ تَمَرَةٍ
فَمََََنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ فَبِكَلِمَةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ

“Save yourselves from the Fire by giving charity even if it is with half a date, and if that is not possible, with a good/kind word”.

[Bukhari]

Don’t let this opportunity slip. Remember that these people are OUR brothers and sisters. Would you ever leave your blood brothers and sisters in such a situation?
