Thank you so much for your valuable contribution towards providing new clothes to over 1,000 students in NUR Outreach schools in Malikpur, Gajumatta and Lakhodair; communities in suburbs of Lahore and in flood affected areas of DG Khan. Nothing inspires more than a smile and you were able to bring twinkle and rays of hope in many little eyes for whom these gifts were very special. Most of these children belong to families who are on or below the poverty line and their parents cannot match up with the pace of their kids growing up when these kids outgrow their clothing. The clothes help raise self esteem in these children as they can celebrate the happiness on Eid-ul Adha with their family and friends.
Eid gifts were also distributed amongst the parents of these children. 200 Shalwar suits were distributed amongst mothers and fathers. Around 2000 students received sweets, juices and biscuits to celebrate the festivities.
NUR Foundation did not forget the children in its outreach school in flood affected areas of DG Khan on this auspicious occasion on this Eid and your donations helped us spread the smiles on the faces of these children as well. Eid ul Adha is celebrated with sacrifice of a goat and NUR Foundation sacrificed 7 goats and 2 cows to distribute meat amongst these families.
With your help we look forward to continue spreading the ray of hope and light to many more children.
Eid is one of the biggest festivals for Muslims as they share happiness and harmony after the holy month of Ramdan. Islam teaches us the lesson of equality and reminds us to take care of the less privileged.
As per tradition, this year around as well, Fatima Memorial System has planned to celebrate the Eid with the children of Anjuman-e-Behbood-e-Niswan-e-Itfal (ABNI) schools located in the suburbs of Lahore. These children belong to the lowest socioeconomic class and thus wait for our help to celebrate Eid.
We are planning to arrange the new clothes for these children. Come and join us in this noble cause as together we can share happiness with them.
Iftar refers to the evening meal when Muslims break their fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan. Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadan. Many Muslims believe that feeding someone Iftar as a form of charity is very rewarding as it was practiced by Prophet Muhammad the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him. He said:
Whoever offers meal to his/her Muslim brother/sister at the time of iftar (the meal eaten by Muslims breaking their fast after sunset during the month of Ramadan), s/he receives as much reward as s/he has earned. Nothing becomes less of the reward of those s/he offered meal to. (Tirmidhî, Sawm: 82; Ibn-i Majah, Siyam: 40)
It is very rewarding to feed people. Feeding a fasting person in particular is much more rewarding. Offering food to people should be deemed as a blessing. It is declared in hadith-i sharifs: The most virtuous of deeds is to cover the fault of a Believer, to feed him, and to make him happy by meeting a need of his.
FMH core work takes on a number of different approaches when it comes to dealing with the relief of needy in society. The Iftar food project is planned to offer Iftar meals (breaking of the fast meals) to those people who are fasting and accompanying patients at the Fatima Memorial Hospital (FMH). The aim of this program is to facilitate the families of patients with food at the time of Iftar. FMH provides its services to almost at least 500 patients every day. The attendants of the patients are already in distress due to the condition of their patients and FMH in every possible way efforts to soothe their distress.
The FMH Iftar campaign offers you the chance to engage with the true spirit of Ramadan and become a part of a noble deed through your donations. As part of our Iftar Campaign, you can provide a fasting person an Iftar that they otherwise could not afford.
