Read me now! And take action!

Asalamu Aliekum everyone,
I pray you are in the best of health and iman! And that you have food and water on your table to feed your hunger! But if you do there's a whole country of people...OUR brothers and sisters...who don't! This is a call of immediate action. Whatever you can donate...donate it now! The situation in East Africa is beyond imaginable, it's been declared the famine of the century! More than 30,000 kids under the age of 5 have died from hunger already! Where are YOU from this?! Imagine if this was you or your family! We're not talking about normal hunger and stomach sounds...we're talking here about starvation! So get your wallet out and donate!

Watch this video of a 13-year-old boy named AbdelRaouf:

“O you who believe! Spend of that with which We have provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zaalimoon (wrongdoers)”[al-Baqarah 2:254] 

262. Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allaah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve”

[al-Baqarah 2:261-262] 

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no day on which the people get up but two angels come down and one of them says, ‘O Allaah, give in compensation to the one who spends (in charity),’ and the other says, ‘O Allaah, destroy the one who withholds.’”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1374; Muslim, 1010. 

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah said: ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.’”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5073; Muslim, 993.

THIS IS A CALL OF ACTION! DONATE and spread this message! 


  1. Thanks Dana - Yes this is terrible to think people are starving to death at the other side of the world - Yes they are OUR brothers and sisters and Yes we can do something.
    Will spread the world and link to your post on my blogs.
    Stay well always.

  2. I agree with you! Its human nature that makes us moan, groan and complain about everything, but thats where it stops. We're not proactive. And that has to change. Even if we've eased the plight of a SINGLE person, that makes a difference. At least that one person obtained relief from their suffering.
