Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Baraakatu,

InshaAllah everyone is in the best of health and Iman.

The reason for this post is because a sister and I are in need of some help and ideas.

InshaAllah soon we will be in the beginning stages of a charity that is both for muslims and non muslim soon.

This charity will InshaAllah work through donations of Islamic clothing (abayas,hijabs, thoubs etc), Islamic books and inshaAllah non islamic attire including coats to donate in the winter.

We are also trying to start a food drive where we inshaAllah can go out between once and a few times a month and hand out warm food to the homeless or anyone who is hungry. this also will be worked through donations inshaAllah

This project means alot to me! and as I have stated earlier we will be in the beginning stages soon and we would really appreciate any help spreading the word and or ideas you may have that could be beneficial to our project.

Jazaak Allahu Khair for your time

if you are interested in this project or you would like to help even if you have ideas or you would like to know more please contact me inshaAllah.

I have been thinking of a few names and I really like Feesabililah and i was thinking of Simply Feesabililah or a helping hand Feesabililah.. Anyhoo inshaAllah let me know what you think :)

Fi Aman Allah

salam sis

jazakilah khayr for your effort it sounds really good mashalah... sorry i'm not of much use coz i'm not in NYC.

a small idea might be to setup like a center where ppl submit things like clothes and all that... and when you giv donation to non Muslims plug a little pamphlet on Islam, perhaps some of the islamic orgs down in the US can provide that so it wont add any extra costs inshalah

mabrook for the idea all the best

ps: there's an option down the bottom 'want to be a mod', click it and apply 2b a mod!

tc salam

Good idea, and since you live in New York you could also expand by donating toys to the children especially during around Christmas. It just breaks the heart when children are barely fed and their parents can't afford to give a present to their child on Isa's (pbuh) day while most kids do. So by doing that little gesture, like the other donations, will help and send a message to Westerners that Islam is not evil and we care for all people.

May Allah (swt) bless your kind hearts and initiative.

:w:

P.S. I also wish I could help more but I live too far, but I do give small donations to the needy from my side.

Alright! Alright! Geez! I don't see the need to insult me, I was just trying to be helpful and encouraging and give possible alternatives to donating in a Western society. Hope you will not have that kind of attitude when you guys donate.

Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Baraakatu,

Ahki I do not think it was to offend you in any way he was simply trying to state that we should not be giving them gifts for christmas but rather eid so that they will know about Eid and Islam inshaAllah

Salam Sister. Mashallah and surely Allah will reward you for your niyat and your work. I came across some brothers while i was living away, and came across a similar project he was running. His was based around a similar idea, but had some sort of building in which people would come clean up, change of clothes, have somthing to eat and so on. It was like a drop in. Have some tea,etc. Seeing that your just starting and i think it would be good to see if you can get local organisations and other islamic projects to help you out i.e funding, sponsoring, donations etc. Personally the best thing to do is get local companies who are willing to help with donations involved, this way the word would spread and inshallah by the time you know it, you will be up and running. Mashallah.

I'm lovin the idea and the name sister :) I wish I could give some money....But I can't.....

But if it's money you are worried about, then you can ask around the big companies for sponsorship, such as the national lottery (if you are living in the UK), they support many ideas and fund many charity organisations :)

I hope I have been oof some help :)
