Iraq Appeal 2011


    Family Sponsorship

    Abu Mu'awiyah Rahmatullahi ‘Alayhi said: "Baghdad is the abode of this world and the next."
    -Ibn Kathir, al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah 9/460

    UWT is appealing to donors in the UK to help 250 families in Baghdad who are in a terrible situation. Each family sponsorship costs £50 a month, or £600 for the year.

    Currently there is no other way out for these families. They need our understanding and our help.

    Abdullah bin Abbaas Radiyallahu ‘Anhu said: “For me to fulfill the necessities of a Muslim family for a month or for a week or whatever period of time Allah pleases is more beloved to me than performing Hajj after Hajj. Buying a utensil for even a Daaniq (one-sixth of a dirham) and giving it to my brother as a gift for the pleasure of Allah is more beloved to me than spending a Dinaar in the path of Allah.”
    - Abu Nu’aym in Hilya 1:328

    £50 a month (£600 for the year) can help one of these families. £50 a month can remove the mother’s worry of not knowing when the next meal will come. £50 a month can allow children to go to school. And ultimately, £50 a month can earn the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala and earn multiple rewards that only He knows.


    Al Rithwan Medical Centre

    You can help provide money for the Al Rithwan Medical Centre in the town of Al- Karmah, western Iraq.

    One of the largest in the province, the centre is run by a fully equipped medical team who will provide free treatment and medicine to the impoverished families of Al-Anbar.

    The centre will also have a dental department, a gynaecologist clinic, a laboratory and a pharmacy. Moreover inshallah, vaccination and medical awareness campaigns will be initiated from this centre
    Realising how grave the situation has become, UWT asks you to extend your hand to the forgotten people of Iraq and donate generously. Inshallah, through the projects UWT is undertaking, the opportunities are many and the rewards great.
