Few Moments Left: Lets' Grab its Rewards and Blessings...
"Whoever gives respite to a poor person or writes off his debt, Allah will put him under His shade on a day on which there will be no shade except His (Judgment Day)." [Sahih Muslim]
Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatahu
Tonight is the Blessed Night of 27th of Ramadan, 1432. As we bid farewell to this bless month let us pray to see another Ramadan Insha'Allah. More importantly, let’s grab all the blessings and rewards we can before these precious days leave us.
Our beloved Messenger Muhammad (May Allah Shower His Peace & Blessings on him) was once asked, which is the best type of charity - He (pbuh) replied: "The charity of Ramadan" [Tirmidhi]
As you increase in supplications, prayers, recitation of Quran, and other such virtuous deeds for the pleasure of Allah SWT, it is time to give more and more in charity in these next few days.
Over the years, we, at Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD), have provided several worldwide philanthropic and humanitarian assistance programs for your kind contributions. For further information regarding these programs visit our website at www.hhrd.org
Humanity is Our Family
As in the past, several HHRD staff members are spending their time in the field, and will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with those in dire needs, rather than going back to their own families.
We appreciate your ongoing support for humanity and are confident that in these next few days and beyond, we will see further support from you, your family members, and friends. Please visit the following link to send your generous donations. Click here to Donate
