#FightTheFamine: Me and my sisters hosted our annual iftar which brings our family and friends together in this holy month of Ramadan. Since Ramadan is a month of blessings which brings out the best in people we decided to raise money for the famine in East Africa because what better month to give than in Ramadan! Charity is not only beneficial for those who receive it, there is also a great reward for the ones who give. The Prophet(PBUH) mentioned that charity never reduces ones wealth but rather it increases it. I want to sincerely thank everyone who was able to attend and even those who could not make it but still donated to the cause! Al7amdulillah, It was such a great night filled with beautiful souls - I love you all for His sake. May Allah(swt ) accept our good deeds this Ramadan, purify our intentions, and grant us the means to keep helping others. Ameen.
I also want to urge anyone else who is able to donate to please do so. I will have the link in my bio. Islamic Relief Canada is partnering with Fight the Famine(initiative by the Somali-Canadian Relief Task Force) to raise $100k for the famine in Somalia. The Canadian government announced that they will match donations between Mar & Jun 2017 for famine prevention efforts! So please don't hesitate in donating to the Fight the Famine crowdfunding collaboration with Islamic Relief Canada!
