A GRAND Start to the New Year
Alhamdulillah Islam Alive together with the Ismail Family handed over R10 000, 00 to the Anjuman Eikhavatool Islam. The funds were much needed to facilitate in advancing the students into full time Hifz and to pay for the newly installed Borehole. This Cash injection was welcomed by the over whelmed students and staff. Brother Yaseen Buckas who is an active member of the staff said ecstatically that he still cannot get over the shock of two young girls that had sacrificed their entire savings just so that they could offer a better life to a less fortunate person whom they have never met in their lifves before. Alhamdulillah, may young Masoodah Ismail and Sabah Ismail reap their rewards generously in this world and even more generously in the hereafter.
Factually speaking, we at Islam Alive were just as taken back when we got the call from Mrs. Ismail, who has always been in the forefront whenever the need arose. She informed me that her daughters had just passed their exams and wanted to do something special, as it turned out that Masoodah had also just turned 21 recently. My mind instinctively pictured a fancy restaurant with an exotic menu fit for royalty. My taste buds were still dancing on the flavours of Maputo when Mrs. Ismail informed me that her young daughters would rather want to gift someone less fortunate on this special occasion. I almost choked on that Dream flavor that my tongue had churned out for me. She said that Masoodah and Sabah would like to donate whatever they had saved the entire year, together with the small cash gift that Masoodah had received from her parents all to a worthy cause. The taste that filled my mouth previously was nothing compared to the joy and excitement that erupted throughout every vessel in my body, there is absolutely no substitute to the joy of spreading happiness. In this world of selfishness, bitterness, greed and malice it is good to see that we still have people that are willing not only to share, but to give away in its full entirety for the pleasure of our Creator.
On behalf of Anjuman Eikvatool Islam Islam Alive would like to respectfully thank the young sisters, and also like to make it known that that the reason we have made this announcement publicly is to encourage others who have the ability to better the lives of those less fortunate to find deserving organizations and help uplift our entire community. To write out a cheque brings one kind of joy, but to sacrifice ones time and visit needy organizations and arrange one on one meetings to personally see how your contributions are being spent, brings a joy that far exceeds anything that you have felt. If you not sure who you want to invest with, call us we have a list of deserving cases that really need your assistance.
P.S. ISLAM ALIVE IS NOT AN NPO AND WE DO NOT COLLECT ANY FUNDS WHATSOEVER, HOWEVER WE TRY AND ASSIST ORGINAZTIONS WHEREVER WE CAN.
