We are overwhelmed by the kindness and support all of you have shown with
not only your money, but kind words of support. Thanks to Allah and with
your help our textbook drive was a big success.
Al-Madinah School, Los Angeles
SubhanAllah, the school’s principal never imagined that strangers from Singapore, Canada, the UK, Australia, the US, Denmark, and Belgium would care for his students.
Indeed, it’s the blessing of Allah, may Allah reward you all.
So, get your half date in before then
You are needed again! So, say, “Alhamdulillah.”
Your little brothers and sisters are waiting for you to pay for their books!
So, READ on and ACT upon their appeal.
Too busy to read? Listen, Allah can clear away all your problems and send you tons of provisions IF you follow this Hadith:
هل تنصرون وترزقون إلا بضعفائكم
“You are supported and provided for no reasons EXCEPT because of the weak amongst you.” -Collected by Al-Bukhari
So, now if you turn away, you are giving your back to Allah’s support and provision.
Still reading? Ma-sha-Allah, Yousuf (4th grade student) must be glad to know that. He left you a message here:
“Assalam alaikum, my name is Yousuf, I’m a student at Al-Madinah School. Friday we are selling food for our textbook drive, please help my school. May Allah reward you.”
Well, it’s natural to feel stingy even to give $5. But, do you know the best charity is the one you give when you are stingy and not well off?
جاء رجل إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال : يا رسول الله ، أي الصدقة أعظم أجرا ؟ قال : أن تصدق وأنت صحيح شحيح ، تخشى الفقر وتأمل الغنى ، ولا تمهل حتى إذا بلغت الحلقوم ، قلت : لفلان كذا ، ولفلان كذا ، وقد كان لفلان
A man came to the Prophet (SAW) asking him which Sadaqa gets the greatest of rewards. The Prophet said, “The one you give and you are healthy, stingy, worrying about poverty, and hoping for richness. And don’t delay until your soul is about to get out (death) when you say, ‘Give such and such to such and such.’” -Collected by Al-Bukhari/Al-Jamia’

Here is the message of Al-Madinah School Principal
“I know that sometimes donors are reluctant to write checks directly to Islamic organizations, so we do have an open and past due textbook invoice that we are unable to pay. If someone would like to write a check directly to the McGraw-Hill Company sponsoring our school textbooks, I have attached the invoice ($5,127.54). I just need to be advised that its been paid or have the check mailed to our school and I will forward payment.
(3) Pay online via PayPal
