During the blessed month of Ramadhaan 1442, we embarked upon a campaign to purchase and send 828 books of various titles to our incarcerated brothers and sisters across the United States. This was an opportune time to support the incarcerated muslims and to help facilitate the spread of authentic Islamic materials in the prisons.
This is a brief timeline detailing our fundraising activities during that month:
April 15, 2021 – We announced the launch of the project on our Twitter urging people to donate to our PayMoneyPool page.
May 2, 2021 – Just before the commencement of the last 10 days of Ramadhaan, we passed 50% of our fundraising goal walhamdulilāh!
May 7, 2021 – All praise is due to Allah through whom all good things come to completion. By the favor of Allah we reached our target and it was truly humbling seeing how many people supported our Ramadhaan Project and donated generously to this noble cause.
Despite some of the challenges we faced, our first Ramadhaan Prison Book drive was a success and we thank Allah for His Many Favors and Blessings. To our supporters we ask Allah to reward you all generously and make it heavy on your scales.
