Sayyiduna Abu Huraira Radhiyallahu Anhu reported that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “One who strives to help the widows or the poor is like one who strives in the cause of Allah, or one who prays at night and fasts during the day.” (Sahih Bukhari)
Alhamdulillah, On Saturday 15th June 2019, the Jamiatul Ulama KZN Project H.E.L.P Team together with volunteers and students from At-Taqwa Boys Madrasah visited the suburb of Crossmoor and Welbedacht in Chatsworth.
The community leaders from these areas requested assistance from the Jamiatul Ulama KZN for the underprivileged children and families who lost most of their belongings in the storms that battered KZN. With winter approaching, the need arose for warm blankets as well as stationery for the kids. Almost 300 families were given blankets and the children were given a stationery pack to see them through the remainder of the year Insha’Allah.
The Jamiatul Ulama KZN has since distributed over 450 Warm Blankets to the underprivileged of Durban and surrounding suburbs and will be an ongoing Project for the 2019 Winter Season. The Jamiatul Ulama KZN appeals to schools, businesses and the community to participate in these noble projects and getting our youth involved as volunteers on the various projects that take place regularly.
May Allah Tala accept the efforts made by volunteers and students who assisted in making the distribution easier and make it a means of guidance for the recipients who were so appreciative.
We express our gratitude to Almighty Allah Ta’ala for affording us the opportunity of serving His creation as well as our donors for their generous contributions.
Persons who wish to participate as volunteers in such social outreach projects can contact the Jamiatul Ulama KZN offices or the Project Help Coordinator, Hafiz Bilall Jeewa on 084 61 78692.
