Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
By Allah’s will and mercy, ICM Zakaah Social Services (ICMZSS) is humbled to present a service that puts those that need assistance in touch with those that are looking for pathways to help others for His sake and mercy. We look upon the words of the Qur’an to inspire us Alhamdulillah:
“It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces towards East or West: But it is the righteousness that ye believe in GOD, and the Last Day and the Angles, and Book, and the Messenger. To spend of your substance out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves, to be steadfast in prayers and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts that ye have made. And be firm and patient in pain (or suffering) and adversity and throughout all period of panic. Such are the people of truth, GOD fearing.” (Al-Baqarah 2:177)
Each month, ICMZSS will be sending one email highlighting three cases for your consideration. If you would like to support one or more of the cases, click on the “Donate” button; it is that simple Alhamdulillah. May He subhana wa ta’la grant us all increased taqwa, tawaqqul, ikhlas, khshooh and make us all people of the right in our intentions, deeds, and pursuits such that it pleases Him subhana wa ta’la, ameen.
