“Hey, lets do the card thing… it would be awesome for our kids to make cards for refugees” -Teacher N

There are about 50 families, lots of kids, about 10 widows, and a few sisters living on their own. If your school/masjid want to ask your kids to make cards for these families, please try to make 50 cards and let the kids write their names and their city.

Sample Letters & Cards

“We are from a class in an Islamic After School program in California, ages 4-7, and we heard about a refugee family whose daughter can no longer walk and talk. The kids wanted to make cards and drawings for their sister in Islam. May Allah reward you all for your efforts inshaa-Allah.”

All the info they gave was that it was from Sister Yafa and her class (Imam, Yusuf, Ahmed, Muhammad, Iman, Amal, Yasmine, and Hosna). May Allah reward the teacher, students, parents, school admin, and all those who helped with the sweetest date in Jannah 😀

If you want to write to a specific person, you can write to the following:

Kids:
you can ask them to write to Hassan and Ibrahim, asking them to take good care of their mother, of each other, and their younger brother.

Or Mustafa:

Adult:
Abu Mais
A father of 7 kids, eldest is 14 yrs old. He takes his kids to and from school everyday, runs all the errands during the day and then works at night as a security guard.

Pharwin
A Burmese girl, mashallah very very smart, she serves as our guide every time we go to the Burmese complex because she is the only one that can speak English there. She is still in school, learning fast and likes school.

Some of you asked about giving these families some gifts. Here are some suggestions:

Prayer rugs, Qurans (especially, in Burmese language) and scarfs/Abayas, school supplies, household items and appliance, and clothes.

The following are some example of these families (Al-Amaanah sponsors about 50 families):

Family #1 (Iraqi)
Single woman, lives on her own, doesn’t speak English. Wallahy she has been waiting all week for our visit, she hasn’t been here for long and doesn’t know that many ppl. Has no one to talk to, and thats her main problem, she wants to learn English so bad. I suggest some sisters make it a habit to visit her twice a week. Maybe get some dessert or something and just go spend some quality time with her. She will be having surgery in April so won’t be able to work this month until she gets the surgery and recovers. She also needs pocket money during this period until she starts working again. Please visit her, call her on the phone, make her know that she is not forgotten!

Family #2 (Iraqi)
Single woman living with her mom and she is the one that has to pay the bills, her mom is too old to work. She was in dire need of finding a job last week and alhamdulillah she just got one a couple of days ago. She hasn’t been working for a month though and her rent has to be paid before the end of the month!!! She also is planning to move closer to work because she takes 3 buses just to get there from where they live. So we promised to help her move, but rent still has to be paid for this month!!!

Family #3 (Iraqi)
A man in his mid 30s, can’t work because he has a lot of medical problems, needs help paying his electric bill (inshalla is in the process of being taken care of). He doesn’t speak English and therefore is isolated in this big world! We should start making it a habit to visit him every week too. He says he could use some furniture around the house so we need to go visit him and find out how can we help him more.

Family #4 (Iraqi) *update 4/19 He found a job, Alhamduilllah*
The father used to work as a barber in Iraq, he had another job here but got laid off because of the economy. He said he is waiting on his papers to come from Iraq this week so that he can start working his normal job (cutting hair). He is having trouble paying the bills and rent till he starts working again.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Can I give Zakah?
    Yes, you can click here to give Zakah
  • Do you spend my Zakah in administrative or operational cost?
    No, Zakah is strictly and totally giving to end beneficiaries.
  • Can these brothers and sisters work?
    Yes, they are looking for jobs and a few do have part-time jobs, but that’s only enough to pay for food, utilities, etc.
  • What about government assistance?
    Government rent assistance to refugee families cover only the first four months.
  • I saw on TV that non-Muslims organizations (e.g. churches) are helping them?
    Yes, there are other refugee service organizations. However, Al Amaanah provides unique services that Muslim families need, e.g. educational programs for their children.
  • What is Al Amaanah?
    Al Amaanah is refugee service organization based in Houston, Texas, USA. The word Amaanah means trust or duty, because Muslims believe that taking care of our brothers and sisters who happened to be refugees is an amaanah on everyone’s shoulders.
  • What other services does Al Amaanah provide?
    Other than financial support, our services include English classes, homework help for children, and physical and emotional support for many widows, injured, and disabled refugees.

    in Islam we believe that ‘After hardship always comes ease’ ..whether the ease is in this life/dunya or the Hereafter/afterlife

    so inshallah after these Muslims have gone through this they’ll know it might be a test from Allah s.w.t and we should all thank Allah for what we have that we have a house and clothes, food and drink etc.

    Assalamualiakum.
    May Allah the Almighty and One of Great Bounty, shower His everlasting Mercy on all those who are in hardships and dire straits, as it is narrated by the Prophet SAW (something to the effect) that we are shown mercy due to the weak amongst us. We therefore need to make sure that we are constantly helping these people in whatever way is possible for us, whether that be through monetary means or simply by leaving a kind word for them. One avenue which we generally tend to overlook although it is probably the most important is that of Dua. We need to remember that this is our weapon and through it we can have access to the riches that our Benevolant Creator has created for us.
    Please remember the whole ummah of the Prophet SAW in your Dua.
    Fiamaanillah.

    Ya Allah , pleace shower your blessing upon these familys and make them ppl of Heaven Inshallah and also for those whoa are kindly donating money for them accept their humble kindness o Most Merciful, Most Kind One Allah s.w.t.!! Ameen

    Inshallah these familys wil benfit from the help of the Muslims kindly giving.
    its graet to see mashallah that so many Muslims are coming together to help

    my friends were actually talking about the Muslim Ummah at school the other day and about how amazing it is that even if there was just one person in the world one of ur brothers, the Muslim Ummah come together and unite for the sake of Allah s.w.t and just for the reason that he’s their brother
    all mankind are brothers and sisters. even non-Muslims coz we all come from Adam and Eve/Hawah …so we should try to make these non-believers become believers by Dawah (not force lol) coz at the end of the day they are ur bros and sis’s . killin em is soo stupid and so unislamic (sorry of the topic a bit) nd u wudnt kill ur actual blood bro wud ya??

    i was also tellin my christian m8 bout this. cuz she believes in adam n eve too. i was lyk isnt ot wonderful that even u n me, or me n sum1 in africa or canada or wherever etc. are related in some way cuz the 1st ppl we came from them, and we just got put in different parts of the world, some of might be darker/lighter but we’re all FAMILY!!

    we were talkin bout this stuf at scul cuz i saw a vid the other day about something along these lines: the 1st muslim astronaut nd he fasted in space during ramadan and was wonderin bout where the kabah direction is LOL in space cuz lyk ur floatin everwer ryt? lol..so muslim scholars came togeva and just for that man (course for future muslims maybe goin to space) inshallah) they decided on how the man wud pray namaz etc.. my m8s wer soo happy hearing this lol they wer lyk jus for 1 man and actually goin out of ur way to help him.

    sooooooooooo
    lol

    Assalamualaikkum
    hadith from the top of my head i rememberedthe prophet s.a.w. said

    “the muslim ummah is like the human body..when one part of the body aches the entire body aches.”

    also think of the ummah like this:
    if u have one stick its easy to snap init? right..if u have 2 its a bit harder but still might be done, same with 3…but if u have a whole bunch of sticks and try to snap them in ur hand u cant do it can u//??(not a question 4 superman lol)
    thats lyk the ummah init. every man makes a difference. if one of ur bros is tryin to do sumthin help him. if jus one u help him then it wont make much of a difference but it will mke some at least. but the more the better..muslims need to unite like back in the days of the Prophets a.s. and s.aw.
