Our Charity Projects
God (Allah) is the most merciful so being His representative on earth we should be merciful too. Our beloved prophet Muhammad (s) was mercy for entire mankind so being his followers; we should have some qualities of the prophet.
We have many charity projects to be implemented but to implement any charity project properly we need two main ingredients: money and honest and sincere manpower.
We have very limited resources so far. Currently we have two projects ongoing with very limited scope.
1. This year we have distributed scholarship to 18 very poor but talented students at Shailkupa, Jhenaidah region of Bangladesh. Those students are very poor but talented and are struggling to meet their cost of education. Their fathers are normally day labors so they cannot afford to give basic education money to their sons or daughters.
We have given them the scholarship only considering the students’ academic results and family financial situations. We never consider their religion, color, ethnicity, political affiliation, gender etc. This year each student has received 1100 Taka (~$13.90). We would like to continue, increase and expand this project but we need money.
2. We are setting up a home for very old, helpless and the poorest of poor people to give them shelter, foods, clothing and basic medical treatments. In this project so far one donor has given 4 decimals of land and 70000.00 Taka. But we need more money to implement this project.
You can give as much money as you can because if we get more money, we not only can implement this project soon but also can expand it. There are many very poor, helpless and vulnerable old people out there who can get a permanent shelter by your generous donation. We can hope God will definitely be pleased to you.
We have several other projects but let us continue and implement these two projects first. If you have any other idea in this regard, please share with us.
You could join us, be an execute committee member and directly supervise and implement these projects. If you would like to donate or discuss anything please contact us at email@example.com or at contact. Thank you and may God bless you.
[The Quran 2:177] Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in GOD, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the traveling alien, the beggars, and to free the slaves; and keep up prayer and give the obligatory charity (Zakat); and they keep their word whenever they make a promise; and they steadfastly persevere in the face of persecution, hardship, and war. These are the truthful; these are the righteous.
[The Quran 2:261] The example of those who spend their monies in the cause of GOD is that of a grain that produces seven spikes, with a hundred grains in each spike. GOD multiplies this manifold for whomever He wills. GOD is Bounteous, Knower.
[The Quran 2:262] Those who spend their money in the cause of GOD, then do not follow their charity with insult or harm, will receive their recompense from their Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
[The Quran 2:163] Your god is one God; there is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
[The Quran 16:18] If you count GOD’s blessings, you cannot possibly encompass them. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
[The Quran 2:30] Recall that your Lord said to the angels, “I am placing a representative on Earth.” They said, “Will You place therein one who will spread evil therein and shed blood, while we sing Your praises, glorify You and sanctify You?” He said, “I know what you do not know.”
[The Quran 21:107] We have sent you (O Muhammad ) not but as a mercy for the whole world.
“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” -Prophet Muhammad; Tirmidhi 589.
“Charity does not decrease wealth, no one forgives another except that Allah increases his honor, and no one humbles himself for the sake of Allah except that Allah raises his status.” -Prophet Muhammad; Sahih Muslim 2588.
A man once said to the Prophet Muhammad (s): “I have plenty of property, a large family, a great deal of money, and I am a gracious host to my guests. Tell me how to conduct my life and how to spend (my money).” The Prophet replied: “Give (regular charity) out of your property, for truly it is a purifier, and be kind to your relatives and acknowledge the rights of the poor, neighbors and (those in need who seek your help).” – Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 3.
