please pull tabs for orphanage in yemen

Salaam alaikum sisters,
To those of you who are in the London/Windsor/Toronto, Ontario area, I ask you kindly to please get your family and friends, sons and daughters, and mosques involved in saving the metal tabs off cans of vimto, juice and pop, as I am collecting them to take back home here to the metal recycling depot where they will melt them down and pay for them by the pound (usually fifty cents per pound of tabs – i.e about 1500 tabs). The ones I collect myself within our family I will be using to make jewelry to sell to benefit the same orphanage inshaAllah (see below). I will then keep collecting until I have enough money from the tabs and sales and donations to send to my sister in law in Yemen. She will then take the money to the orphange in San’aa. Please take advantage of this chance for sadaqah inshaAllah.

Rasoolullah (saaw), the messenger of Allah swt said: ‘I and the one who takes care of an orphan will be in Jannah like that,’ (and he place his middle finger and forefinger together). (narrated by Bukhari)

 

note: you can either email me for my address to send the tabs, or I can meet you during my daughter’s many appointments inshaAllah. We will be in London August 31, 2011 and Toronto area (hospital for sick kids) mid-December 2011. JazakAllah khair, may Allah bless all our efforts as we work towards the akhirah.

Malnourished in Yemen…

salaam alaikum ramahtullah wa barakatu (Al Jazeera report is here)

 

Quick points: Women of Yemen have the lowest birth weight newborns in the world
1 in 3 people in Yemen are malnourished, living in poverty
Poverty increased 25% since 2006 alone.
It is going through triple F crisis-rising food prices,falling feul revenues & the countrys financial crisis

We need to help our sisters and brothers in Yemen insha’Allah… is it not haram to sit back and watch your sister not able to feed her daughters and sons while we sit and not give a second passing thought to all we have? If you have nothing to give, not even half a date, you will get reward for your intention and dua’a…

fundraising inshaAllah… calling all your daughters to get involved!

So I am still coming up with ways to fund raise for our on-going project for our sisters in Yemen insha’Allah. Does anyone have any middle eastern recipes for sweets? I found a recipe for Fatima’s Fingers (which are like ricotta filled crepes), Chocolate covered dates, and baklawa and Zalabiya (yemeni fried sweet rings) . I am looking for simple recipes inshaAllah that could preferably be frozen but if not, thats fine too. Insha’Allah I will use these recipes in a bake sale during Jummah in the upcoming weeks. So ask your daughters (or sons) what their favourite recipes are and email them to me inshaAllah or comment with a link to them below ok? Let your daughters know that they will be helping with this and inshaAllah for every item we sell from their recipe, they will get ajer bithin’Allah! Jazak Allah khair sisters!

alhamdulillah!

Alhamdulillah our project is underway thanks in large part to Baitulmaal who started it off with a donation of the Quran in braille! JazakAllah khair to all those who are involved in the Quran project, for giving al-noor al Quran to our أعمى sisters in Yemen mashaAllah…
