MashaAllah, God has willed, my global relationships with devout Muslim moms determined to make a difference in their religious lives personally and within their businesses. One such relationship is with my dear sister in Islam, owner, writer, publisher, designer of SmartArk.
Anyways, she shared this incredible video in which she organized to donate books to the new Islamic library of this orphanage. I was watching and listening to this well-dressed, well-behaved, gorgeous-Arabic and English speaking children, MashaAllah, who only when they were laughing at the technology of watching themselves get filmed with a camcorder, did they use their obviously 3rd language and native tongue.
I was so focused on the video, that I didn’t notice the title; so only until I saw the newly built dormitory did I realize it was an orphanage. My daughter quickly replied, “I wondered why you weren’t crying yet” as I began to cry, weep, then sob. Making du’a for these beautiful children, mashaAllah.
Sharing between deep breathes of tears to my girls how fortunate they are, to have a home, food, clean clothes, education, a masjid, green grass, a soccer field, fresh air…mashaAllah, NOTHING like the poor children or orphans we came across in Gaza or during Hajj and Umrah. I continued to have the girls continue making du’a and praying for their continued health, safety and security.
It is programs like these, with partners I care so deeply about that I want to participate in here at the American Muslim Mom Foundation. Once we receive our 501c3 tax-exemption status, we’ll be able to host numerous charities, in which you can elect to donate and support.
The video ends with this most precious ayat in our Glorious Qur’an
They ask you (O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salem) what they should spend. Say: Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindred and orphans and Al-Masakin (the poor) and the wayfarers, and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well.”
But, we can’t get there without your support! Please hop over to our GoFundMe page, and at least make a Pewter Level ($7) donation to support our growth, insha Allah.
