Dear Brothers and Sisters, Global Aid Trust has been facilitating opportunities for you to maximise you deeds and achieve great rewards for over a decade. This year, we bring forth the Ramadan appeal on Thursday 6th May 2021 on Channel S (Sky 777) with following projects where you can donate and maximise your reward from Allah (SWT) on this blessed odd night.
Eid Gift 2021
Eid is upon us and it is a time of joy and celebration for Muslims all over the world. It is when we thank Allah (SWT) and come together to celebrate with our keens, neighbours and loved ones. For children in particular, receiving gifts makes these days extra special.
Sadly, not everyone can give their children anything special this Eid while they are simply struggling to survive. Especially those living in south Asia do not have what we have in the West. With one in eight people going to bed hungry around the world, your gift could mean everything to a child on the morning of Eid.
The Messenger ﷺ of Allah (SWT) said, ‘The most beloved deed in the sight of Allah after the compulsory acts is bringing happiness to a Muslim.’ (Tabarani)
Through Global Aid Trust’s Eid Gift project, you can be the reason for bringing joy to a deprived child on the day of Eid. An Eid Gift costs just £30 and can show a child in need that there are people in this ummah who love them for the sake of Allah. Your donation will help provide clothing, food, sweets and toys to children and make this Eid extra special for them insha Allah.
Build a Masjid Project
A masjid is at the centre of any local Muslim community which not only provides a place for prayer but also is a hub for education and other services. It helps people learn more about Islam and plays key role in their moral and spiritual development. However, many of our brothers and sisters across the developing world are not fortunate enough to have easy access to a local Masjid.
The Messenger ﷺ of Allah (SWT) said, ‘Whoever constructs a masjid for Allah, Allah will construct a house for him in Paradise.’ (Bukhari)
Just as the Prophet (ﷺ) helped to build the first mosque in Medina, help us build a mosque in this world and build your palace in Jannah this Ramadan insha Allah.
By building a masjid you will not only earn the reward of providing a community with a house of Allah, but your Sadaqah Jariyah will continue giving benefit for generations to come insha Allah.
Hafiz Sponsorship Project
There is no doubt that education is crucial to children and the way in which they develop. Along with this, they enhance their skills, learn new skills and set themselves up for life as an adult. However, poverty in Bangladesh has influenced and continues to influence the way in which children access education.
In Bangladesh, there are around 57 million children under the age of 18 with 15 million of those being under the age of 5 years of age. Studies have found that around 5.6 million children are not in school in Bangladesh.
The Messenger ﷺ of Allah (SWT) said, ‘The best amongst you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it.‘ (Bukhari)
Donating through Global Aid Trust Hifz Project can help make the difference for children education across Bangladesh. Donors can donate as little as £16 a month for three years and four months to help support future Hafiz. This will help them start their journey to education, get the education they deserve, making it possible for them to grow, gain knowledge and learn skill and guide our future generation.
Clean Water Project
Clean water is the most important basic human need, access to which enables mankind to lead a healthy, clean life and avoid illness. This is something that we all take for granted. However, in Asia and Africa a lot of places do not have immediate or quick access to water, often miles of travelling is needed – to fetch water people including women and children need to travel on average 3.7 miles.In Bangladesh alone, around four million people live in slums and do not have access to the basic needs that we use on a daily basis such as clean, safe water.
The Messenger ﷺ of Allah (SWT) was asked, 'Which charity is best?' He replied, '[Providing] water'.
The following hadith teaches us that a simple act of kindness such as giving water can be our salvation on the Day of Judgment.
The Messenger ﷺ of Allah (SWT) said, 'Allah had once forgiven a prostitute. She passed by a dog panting near a well. Seeing that thirst had nearly killed him, she took off her shoe, tied it to her scarf, and drew up some water. Allah forgave her for that.'
He ﷺ also said, ‘Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, will say on the Day of Resurrection, “…O son of Adam, I asked you for something to drink but you did not give it to me.” He will say, “O Lord, how can I give you something to drink when you are the Lord of the worlds?” He will then say, “My Servant so-and-so asked you to give him something to drink and you did not give it to him. Had you given it to him, you would have surely found that with me.”'
Our Water Well Campaign enables us to deliver pure clean water to the people in need. We are providing them with deep water wells which you can be a part of and achieve great rewards in this world and the hereafter. We need your help. You can donate for an entire well or a share or more.
