Muslim Sisters Association…

27 11 2007

Since I was in middle school I have been involved in extracurricular activities in school and community services. Through out my life its been in my second nature to give back and help people who are in need. Than I began gaining more knowledge in our deen and doing more dawah work….this took all of that into another level. So, I am NOT doing that I feel like I have a HUGE VOID in my life.

“Who believe in the Ghaib and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and spend out of what we have provided for them (i.e. give Zakat , spend on themselves, their parents, their children, their wives, etc., and also give charity to the poor and also in Allahs Cause: Quran 2:3

“They ask you (O Muhammad SAW) what they should spend. Say: Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindred and orphans and AlMasakin (the poor) and the wayfarers, and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well. ” Quran 2:215

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr: A man asked the Prophet , “What sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?” The Prophet replied, ‘To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not Know” Book: 2 Hadith: #11

There are numerous verses and hadith about visiting the sick, helping the poor, and those in need. Its obligatory upon us to share the knowledge we know, its a huge part of our sunnah. Therefore, all these things I take very seriously and when I don’t have that in my life I am like fish without water.

Subhanallah Allah Subhana WAtala is so GREAT…He has blessed me with some amazing sisters already from Chicago. These sisters started an amazing organization called, Muslims Sisters Association with an unique goal and services:

  • Visiting the Sick
  • Assisting our elders
  • Assisting sisters that just had a baby
  • Giving support to a sister that may have lost their love ones or going through difficult times
  • Finding resources for jobs
  • Hold various type of dawah events, “Cover Me Beautiful”
  • Help one of our members if in need
  • Helping a sister within the Ummah

So, I am beyond excited! I mean there are things going on in Chicago, but not so much youth/sisters activities on the South side. Everything seems to be too far from where I live. Inshallah I’m gonna go with one of the sisters today to visit a sister who is going through some hard times right now.

Off topic! One of the masjids here feeds the homeless EVERY SUNDAY and during Ramadan they feed the homeless EVERY DAY…Pretty amazing, huh? Yes, there’s suffering around the world but, there are so many in need and suffering in our own backyard.

If you’d like to donate to help us in our efforts, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or email. Any generosity are welcome! Jazza kallahu khairin. May Allah accept all our efforts. Ameen!
