The topics covered are crucial to having a sincere mindset, a patient attitude, and remaining firm on your faith during both difficulty and ease. In addition, learning the true meaning of ‘steadfastness’ and ‘true happiness’ will help you stay constant in performing good deeds regularly.
The classes will be segregated; Shaykh Abu Ibrahim will be teaching, and Ustadha Hiba Mohamed will be teaching the sisters.
On the authority of Abu ‘Amr (ra), who said:
‘I said, “O Messenger of Allah! Tell me something about Islam which I can ask of no one except you”.
He (saw) said, “Say I believe in Allah — and then be steadfast”.
Borehole in Central Somalia
According to the World Bank, only 7% of the rural population in Somalia has access to improved water sources. Drought, conflict, displacement and constant instability have left large numbers of people in Somalia without clean water. Waterborne diseases are rife amongst children. The current situation in this area is that there is no suitable water source available. There is an urgent need for these kinds of water projects in central Somalia.
Project details: The proposal is to construct a deep borehole which is over 100 metres deep. The borehole will be connected to a 24,000-litre water tanker.
Beneficiaries: Over 20,000 families and their livestock will benefit from this borehole.
Well for Farmers in Ramallah, Palestine
Ramallah is in the West Bank, around 10km from Jerusalem. There is an Israeli domination over Palestinian water sources in Ramallah, resulting in an insufficient supply for the Palestinian population. Digging wells is expensive and the Palestinians are financially poor. The Palestinians in and around Jerusalem are in dire need of our support to provide them with a water well.
This well will provide clean water for drinking, agricultural and farming needs. It will support Palestinian farmers in earning a living and controlling their own food sources. Ensuring the farm is well-equipped will also help the land remain in Palestinian possession at a time when they are regularly losing land.
Beneficiaries: The direct beneficiaries will be the farming families who live in the area, but indirectly this project supports thousands of Palestinians.
