Tahfeezul Qur‘an in Gaza

    Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. (15:9)

    Allah, Glory be to Him, has promised to preserve the Qur’an in its entirety. For 1400 years, taufiq has been granted to countless believers to memorise its glorious words – clear and uncorrupted.

    Through its Hifz Sponsorship programme, Ummah Welfare Trust has tried to be a means for the Qur’an’s continued transmission. Alhamdulillah, Ummah Welfare Trust has sponsored students (including many orphans) to memorise the Qur’an in Pakistan, India, Somalia, Albania and elsewhere.

    In recent years focus for this project has also shifted to Palestine. Beloved to the Ummah, Palestine is a witness to anbiyaa, great ulema and of course to Masjid al-Aqsa. Ummah Welfare Trust is aiming to seek Allah’s pleasure by creating as much Huffaz in this land as possible.

    In several madrassahs across Gaza, poor students between the 1st and 6th grade of primary school have been selected for enrolment on the Hifz course. Ten teachers have been employed by Ummah Welfare Trust to teach these children the Qur’an and essentials of Islam.

    Allowing for secular studies, students are expected to memorise at least 6 juz per year. One hundred students are currently being sponsored and are making excellent progress alhamdulillah. Many of these children are also orphans.

    In this unique project, you can sponsor a child to become a Hafiz. The Sadaqah Jariyah you will receive is innumerable inshaAllah.

    Case study: Jamal Meshal

    Eleven-year old Jamal Meshal lives in Deir Al-Balah and is a student at the Khubayb ibn ‘Ady school . He has 3 brothers and 3 sisters. His father has been unemployed for several years. The family is now sadly very poor.

    Alhamdulillah Jamal was sponsored recently by Ummah Welfare Trust to memorise the Qur’an. He has memorised 24 chapters of the Qu’ran to date. InshaAllah he aims to complete memorization of the Qu’ran by the summer of 2013.

    Jamal said,  ‘In the future, I hope to be an Imam and preacher in a masjid in Gaza.’

    We ask Allah to use young Jamal as a servant for his religion inshaAllah. Ameen.
