Assalamu 'alaykum!

Ramadan Mubarak! We pray Allah makes this a productive and spiritually uplifting month for you.

"Righteousness is not that you turn your faces towards the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, ORPHANS, the needy, the traveler..." [Portion of Quran 2:177)

Sahl bin Sa'd (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "I will be like this in Jannah with the person who takes care of an orphan." Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) raised his forefinger and middle finger by way of illustration. [Al-Bukhari]

This year, IAFUNSW is hosting a Ramadan Sponsorthon, "Honour the Orphan." We want to reach at least $10,000, Insha'Allah!

You may choose to donate everyday, at the end of each week or altogether at the end of the month. From 5c to $5000 or more, it's whatever you think you can do! At the end of the month, 100% of all donations will be collated and sent to Orphan Aid through Muslim Aid, Insha'Allah.

For as little as $50 a month (less than $2 a day), you can sponsor an orphan in Indonesia, Yemen, Palestine, India and Kenya, all their basic necessities catered for including food, water, medical supplies, and school supplies. That means for just $10 a day (less than the price of takeaway, come on), you can sponsor 5 orphans for an entire month, and what better time to do it?

If you would like to race with your fellow Muslims to receive rewards through this initiative, all you have to do is make an intention to set aside a certain amount of money for each day of Ramadan and by the 16th of July, donate to our account. Alternatively, you can setup a recurring payment for a set amount.
