May the grace and mercy of Almighty Allah prevail upon you eternally. Ameen.

 

As you read this, there are numerous wars and conflicts raging around the world.  Although we will only see a few of them on our television sets, one fact is certain – over 80% of war casualties are civilians, mainly women and children.

 

Some may argue that such statistics and numbers are meaningless, But the fact that many of the wars in this decade are fought in the developing world – Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, to name but a few – makes these statistics sickeningly real and very relevant.

 

This is why Muslim Hands has launched the Green Ribbon Week to raise funds to support the innocent children affected by war and poverty. Funds are used to provide medical care, trauma therapy, school equipment and homes for children in some of the worlds most devastated countries. We make shukr to Allah for His Mercy in protecting us and our children from such suffering.

For this event we would like to appeal to the public  to help us raise funds for the Children of War by selling the Green Ribbons. Each ribbon will cost R 5. By simply wearing a Green Ribbon you can help improve the lives of many children worldwide.

Contact Muslim Hands to order your Green Ribbons. (021) 633 6413 or visit us at 1 Carnie Road Rylands. Find out more about our Green Ribbon Initiative at http://www.muslimhands.org.za.

On Friday the 13th the Radio 786 expo took place at Athlone Civic Klipfontein. The event ended on Sunday the 15th. Muslim Hands presented an exhibit stand at the event. Alhamdulilah the event went very well. From my own experience i can say that i am definitely looking forward to another Radio 786 Expo.

Pictures of the event will be provided.


Asalaamualaikum to all my bloggers and viewers.

The Muslim Hands Hoot2Warm drive Alhamdulilah went very well, All praises goes to Allah (SWT) for blessing us and protecting us and for giving us the strength and the ability to help those less fortunate. Success only lies in Allah and only Allah provides to whom he wills.
I would like to say Jazakallah to all our Volunteers from all of us here at Muslim Hands. This initiative would not have been successful without them and all of their Dua’s. It definitely was not easy to go out there at 7am in the morning but it was truly amazing to see everyone putting aside their own needs in order to help those less fortunate and i truly enjoyed meeting and participating with all the volunteers.

I thought i would share an email that was sent to the Muslim Hands team by Ayesha Bibi Khan. It describes her experiences as well as all other Volunteers who participated in the Hoot2Warm drive.

Pictures will also be provided of the event. Inshallah

Assalaamu Alaikum

I hope you all well, insha’Allah 🙂

On behalf of myself and all the volunteers that were connected to me, I would just like to say that it was an awesome experience being part of MH Hoot2Warm. Being out early morning in the cold, in the holidays is something everyone would be hesitant about doing, and we all were. But, once we were there the first time, we wanted to go do it again. And that’s something that I always try explaining to my family (my generation. Lol.) and to my friends. Just try doing it once, and you’ll never want to give up that feeling of doing charity, of doing good because it really can’t be replaced with anything else.

Ml. Sarfaraaz, I commend you on just going with it. Despite the criticism. And for making it as “youth-friendly” as possible. The volunteers could sense that.

Fadia, you had amazing patience with the volunteers, communicating whenever was suitable to them. I honestly don’t think anyone else could have done it better 🙂

I make duah that MH carries on being an organisation that leads. That sticks with going with gut instincts. And that leaves a mark of hope that no one forgets. Ameen.

Jazak’Allah for allowing us all to be part of it 🙂

Have an awesome day further!

P.S. I look forward to doing it again next year, and to one day drive to work and receive a Hoot2Warm pamphlet ;). Keep up the great work.


On the 14th of April 2012 Muslim Hands hosted the GRPL indoor cricket tournament in AID of the childrens fund of South Africa. The event took place at Montague sports arena. 12 teams participated. CT Knight Riders, Masala Rangers, Snatch, Taliban, Quantum Force, Fatal 8, Hot 8, Lappies Strikers, Rebel Alliance, Power Rangers, Wolf Pack and Muslim Hands.

The event started at 9am, teams were well prepared and ready for action. Food stalls were set up for the event aswell.

Before the event the opening Dua was made by Ml. Saleem and a speech was then giving by Ml.Sarfaraaz.

Let the games Begin.

The winning team was Hot 8 and the team with the most funds raised was team Snatch.

Alhumdulilah the event was a great success and many thanks to all the sponsors who have contributed to making this event a great success.

Inshallah we look forward to next year and perhaps the event could even be greater Inshallah.
