Assalaamu 'Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaathuh
I hope and pray that you all had a fruitful Ramadhan and an enjoyable 'Eid. May Allah accept our good deeds, forgive us our shortcomings and unite us all in The Garden.
The last few days of Ramadhan, the 'Eid Day and the weekend has been hectic so I was not able to send you an update. MashaAllah the response has been phenomenal and I have now managed to work out the figures of contributions made through PayPal, bank transfers, cash and cheques. These have come from all around the world.
I sincerely would like to thank and ask Allah to reward immensely those who participated in this project by contributing funds, spreading the word, praying for its success and helping in whatever other ways possible. This started off as a small idea but it has now picked up momentum to cover the East of England Region. InshaAllah we hope and pray that this can be expanded to cover the whole of UK soon.
By the end of the 'Eid Day on Friday we had reached 168% of the overall target and currently we are at 171% of the target. This translates to 379 copies of the Quran Translations and 312 copies of the Seerah. Our target was 200 copies each of Quran and Seerah.
MashaAllah this has been a phenomenal success so far thanks to Allah's blessings and your support, given that it was only a limited email campaign. Alhamdulillah we now have the resources to start expanding beyond Cambridgeshire. We have already placed orders for the books.
If you have not contributed yet then this is the time to do so. There are no shortage of libraries for Quran and Seerah.
The list of donors and their comments will follow InshaAllah.
