From Slavery to Freedom in Pakistan

    Asma' RadhyAllahu 'anha says:
    'Indeed, the Prophet ﷺ instructed people to free slaves during the solar eclipse.'
    (Sahih al Bukhari)

    During the last solar eclipse, in accordance with the command of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ to free slaves during this time, Ummah Welfare Trust launched an appeal to free bonded labourers in Sindh, Pakistan.

    Generations of families here had grown up working as bonded labourers. They were compelled to work due to debts they had inherited from previous generations.

    You responded to Ummah Welfare Trust's appeal during the last solar eclipse to free many of these labourers, and now they are free, alhamdulillah.

    Ummah Welfare Trust paid off the debts of two hundred families, provided them with provisions, and enrolled their children into full-time schooling.

    An amazing outcome, alhamdulillah.
