As A Muslim, Have You Done Your Part To Spread Islam? If Not, Donate Today For The “Dawah Center”!
Charity does not decrease one’s wealth. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala increases your earning exponentially as you increase your giving.
Our mission is to help the poor and suffering population of the pre-dominantly backward, Indonesia. However, that is not something we can do easily without your help. The poor who live in subhuman conditions in the poverty ridden Indonesia are in constant need of help to survive.
If you donate even a small percentage of your income which might not mean much to you, it could work wonders for the needy and has the power to bring drastic changes in their lives.
What Are You Donating For?
A Dawah and Charity Center whose main purpose is to give dawah and spread the message of Islam within its area of operation.
The center will have dedicated efforts for giving dawah as well as supporting any new reverts to Islam so that they can learn the basics and become successful members of the Ummah. The efforts of giving dawah and supporting new Muslims is obligatory on us yet rare in most parts of the world.
Are You A Past Donator? This Is What You Helped Achieve The Last Time You Donated!
Through your generosity and Allah’s help we raised $13,437. We used the money to buy iftar and monthly meals for a large group present during the Komunitas Hijab Syari’ event. Along with the iftars we distributed 335 bags worth $40 per bag (monthly food ration enough for a 4-member family).
As per our calculations, the number of meals each bag could provide throughout the month had to be between 75 to 150 meals.
350 bags x 150 meals per bag = 52,500 meals
350 bags x 100 meals per bag = 35,000 meals
Just imagine, even if you donated as little as 5 or 6 dollars, your money could have contributed to a few thousand meals. Ma Sha Allah!
Moreover, the event conducted in Ramadan served as an excellent way to reach out to the community and spread awareness about Islam.
How Would It Help The Muslim Ummah?
This category is also dynamic and open to improvements over time but current plans include:
Freely available dawah materials (audio, video, pamphlets, books, etc.) which can be picked up outside our center by Muslims or non-Muslims. This would allow Muslims that have non-Muslim co-workers or friends to take materials from our center and give to them or for any non-Muslims to come any time and have materials for their study. Not only would it establish a positive image of the Muslims but help spread the message of Islam.
Regular classes will be held as frequently as needed for Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslims would be reminded of the obligation of dawah and receive training on how to properly explain Islam to non-Muslims. New Muslims would have classes on the basics of Islam, such as prayer, with personal mentors and introduction to the Muslim community. Non-Muslims would be invited for a meal at the masjid and taught the basics of the religion while being invited to Islam.
Visits to Non-Muslims
That is not all. It is common in dawah that a non-Muslim will want to know about Islam but not know how to take the first steps. Our Imam and employees would offer to visit the homes of non-Muslims in our area and, one on one, and explain Islam to them.
There are many active and pending online projects of the us-Sunnah Foundation. Employees would participate in answering emails from non-Muslims, posting articles or blogs online for dawah and in the future (when staffed) operating whole online services to talk and chat with non-Muslims in multiple languages globally.
The centers will be self-sufficient once built and continuously provide food and services without need for further donations.
How Much Do We Need?
Our immediate goal for this center is $45k for ground breaking and getting started while the entire project goal is $160k.
Why You Should Donate?
Firstly, the us-Sunnah Foundation (501c3) provides a 100% donation policy as all our operations are covered by our sponsors and volunteers. Donations made to our waqf produce reliable and recurring income for all operations with any excess going directly to the charity efforts.
Secondly, if you are a philanthropist and believe in charity related causes all the while thinking that self-sustainable development is the way to go when it comes to helping communities in need, you should donate. The centers will be constructed alongside low-income apartments which will dedicate their monthly recurring income to fund all operations, food costs and salaries of a few charity workers. This will make each center self-sufficient. Additionally, the income will be enough to construct a second center like itself in about 10 years for long-term expansion; then with two centers a third in the next 5 years and so on.
