Reaching out to the Poor Ramadhan Dates Program

BISMILLAH AR-RAHMAN AR-RAHEEM, As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa-Rahmatullah wa-Barakaatu,

As Muslims, we must be grateful to Allah and this gratitude must be shown not just through our hearts and tongues, but also through our deeds. This means that we need to use the blessings Allah has bestowed upon us in His Cause and to share these blessings with less privileged people.

Alhamdulillah, we are humbled to let you know that for yet another year AL Noor Charitable Agency for the Needy has received Ramadhan SADAQA of three 20 feet containers (about 60,000 kg) of Dates (TAMAR) worth more than US$ 90,000.

Please view the link to our brief video clip presentation of past years distribution which will give you just a glimpse of the great efforts Al Noor is taking to ensure that the Ramadhan sadaqa of DATES reaches the weak, the poor and the needy in remote and isolated villages of Unguja and Pemba Islands.

We cannot underestimate the detailed plans and logistics required in distributing the dates to reach inaccessible villages and semi tiny island of Unguja and Pemba islands. No effort is spared in crossing difficult terrains, reaching high poverty villages which are completely isolated and cut-off from the main Islands.

The donor expects AL Noor to bear the cost of shipment from the Sharjah Dates Factory to Zanzibar and also manage all the local distribution costs. Just like all previous years we rely on our supporter’s contribution to raise US$ 6,000 be able to implement this logistically challenging task and deliver the Ramadhan dates to remote villages on time.

We are very grateful to Allah Subhanahu for touching the hearts of His servants during this very special month of mercy and forgiveness and we also pray that Allah will bless and reward all of the people who give their sadaqa through Al Noor Charity. Needless you say, depositing our money with Allah i.e. giving in charity is the best investment we can ever make. Jazakum Allah Khairaa and we leave you with the words of Allah, the Most Bountiful:

“Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded: that is the supreme achievement.” (Quran 9;111)
