This year – Eid-al-Adha will likely feel different for many of us. It will be a celebration of simplicity. A holiday that will allow us to better try to understand what our brothers and sisters around the world experience, reflect upon ourselves and take steps to do better - do more.
For them, the reality of each day is:
Risk when venturing out of the home to access food – with empty shelves and stomachs the norm
An inability to travel outside the home at will – if a home exists at all
Access to healthcare only offered because someone like YOU shows they care
Our faith reminds us: “Zakah is for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to the truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer; (thus it is) ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom." Quran 9:30
The Zakat you entrust us with will be used for the direct support of IMANA’s Medical Relief missions around the globe and to strengthen our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
