Sponsor me this Dhul Hijjah as I give up Twitter, crisps and chocolate bars (yh ik...pretty random imo) to raise vital funds for a family in need.
Help me honour the sisters walking in the footsteps of Hajar by sacrificing something that I love.
In honour of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and his willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice, I am givng up Twitter, crisps and chocolate bars to raise vital funds for the single mothers walking in the footsteps of Hajar who HHUGS support every single day.
“Abdullah ibn ‘Umar used to give away sweets in charity saying, ‘I am aware of Allah’s saying; “You shall not attain piety until you spend out of that which is beloved to you’ [3: 92] and Allah knows that I love sweets.’”
So please give generously to help me reach my target in days that are more blessed in virtue than the last days of Ramadhan!
“There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days.” (Bukhari)
You might have struggled with the lockdown this year but it's easy to forget that many families in our midst live like this all year round. You can make a difference to families for whom social distancing and isolation is a norm.
This Dhul Hijjah, you can save lives whilst staying home and staying safe.
HHUGS supports single mothers impacted by counter-terror measures and detention. With their husbands in prison, these women face social isolation and financial hardships, as they struggle desperately to provide for their children. With no one to rely on but Allah, they are the Hajars living in our midst, unknown, unnoticed and often shunned.
The pandemic is still fresh in our minds. The difficulty we all felt during the strictest version of lockdown is an isolation and pain these mothers know all too well. Yet as we remained safe in our homes with our loved ones, these women still struggle alone in the absence of a husband, father and often community too. For them, social distancing is not a temporary measure as their husbands face a permanent lockdown. As well as the emotional impact of this, families are left in great financial uncertainty too.
This Dhul Hijjah, your Sadaqah need not travel far to lift a mother and her children out of distress.
Heal a HHUGS family during the best 10 days of the year. Honour Hajar (ra) by supporting our sisters who walk in her footsteps.
May Allah reward you for your generous support. Ameen.
