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…
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!
Asalaamu alaikum ramatullah wa barakatu,
I am seeking any female authors out there who have published islamic and/or educational books or texts regarding womens issues or interests in any form to donate their book as well as the right to publish it in braille form for our visually impaired sisters. If you are interested, please comment with your contact information and I will get back to you as soon as possible, jazakAllah khair.
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…
