We exhorted our supporters to donate generously and Alhamdulilāh we met and surpassed our goal on December 1, 2022.
The concern by our supporters with regards to helping the incarcerated Muslims learn their religion was a joy to see. We ask all Allah to bless and grant success to everyone that participated in this project, whether monetary or simply just making dua’a.
Our sincere thanks also goes to those individuals who donated almost daily throughout the campaign. May Allah accept your charity and make it heavy on your scales of good deeds.
“When the son of Adam dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: Ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge that people benefit from, a pious child who prays for him.” [Muslim].
Alhamdulilāh, It was truly a blessing to provide books that the inmates in this prison could use for the Islamic studies classes conducted by their Muslim chaplain.
UPDATE [December 3, 2022]: The first shipment of 104 copies of “A Comprehensive Guide for the New Muslim”authored by @anwarphilly and published by @hikmahpubs was sent to the inmates.
