YOU CAN HELP NOW! DONATE JUST ONE DOLLAR EACH DAY TO THE DONATION BOX LOCATED OUTSIDE THE PRAYER AREA AT THE ISLAMIC CENTER OF GREATER LANSING LABELED "SOMALIA RELIEF" Ramadan Muburak to all! This is the time to check yourself in the mirror, In this blessed month of Ramadan every action is amplified, every good deed magnified. There is great reward for feeding the mouths of people who are fasting a day. Imagine the reward of helping keep you Muslim brothers and sisters alive!! By simply donating whatever you can you can save a life, a child who may grow up to do magnificent things. And with every great thing they do you will be rewarded. This famine is real, these pictures are real, these corpses are real. As we sit in cooled AC houses, with ample food for suhoor and iftar, remember those who dream of these things. Remember our muslim brothers and sisters who are dying. Don't wait until we will have to answer to Allah for turning our backs on our fellow Muslimeen. You are not limited to only one dollar, this is simply a baseline, a starting point to encourage people to give. If you can afford more, then by all means garner as much Jannah as you can by donating as much as you can. Still not convinced?...... "They as you (O Muhammad) what they should spend in charity. Say:'Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travellers in need. Whatever good you do, Allah is aware of it'"-2:215 "We were hungry and couldn't get work. We traveled as a family but soon after we arrived my husband died, leaving me a widow and my children without a father. I just need help — anything." — Dainabo, a 30-year-old mother of three, who arrived in Dadaab, Kenya after walking for six days to escape the famine in Somalia (via https://my.care.org/site/Donat
