As-Salaamu-Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I Pray you are all well and in high emaan?.
One of our brothers in Canada, who accepted Islam from hinduism whilst studying in Canada has requested for some help with clearing his student loan.
After accepting Islam his family has ostracised him and although he is working to try and clear his debt (Can $10K), he just makes enough to pay for his rent and other living expenses and just about manages to pay the interest amount of the loan, which is due by end of May 2009. If he fails to pay by then it will end up with the Debt Collectors which will have adverse effects on his student?s visa and also his permanent residency application which is currently under process.
Please dig deep into your pockets and let us try to help our brother in Islam by giving some of our Zakat to him isA. Sheikh has requested us to raise £5K for this cause.
Please let me know if you are able to contribute anything and JazakumAllah U Khair in advance for your generosity. May Allah subhanawatala ease your burdens in this life and the hereafter and add this kind gesture on to your scales of good deeds?Ameen?
