New Muslim Sponsorship

    New Muslim Sponsorship

    In the court of Kisra, the leader of Persia, Rabe'e ibn 'Amr RadiAllahu 'anhu was asked what he was inviting towards. The great companion replied, 'We come to take people away from worshipping creation to worshipping the Creator of the creation; from the injustice of their religion to the justice of Islam...'

    In the Choor area of Sindh, Pakistan, thousands of impoverished families live as bonded labourers. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan estimates that there are as many 50,000 bonded labourers in Sindh alone.

    Fettered with debts before they were even born, many of these families - and sadly their progeny - are resigned to a life of graft and subservience.

    In 2006, Ummah Welfare Trust joined hands with the donors of the UK to help liberate these bonded labourers in Sindh. Since then thousands of families' debts have been repaid.

    Alhamdulillah, Allah's mercy did not end there. The majority of these freed families were non- Muslims who, upon being freed, chose to accept Islam.

    Ummah Welfare Trust has now launched a follow-up initiative. The 'New Muslim Sponsorship' project aims to provide the children of these freed families with a full-time education.

    This education, tailored for both secular and Islamic needs, will cement the children's new-found imaan and provide them with the knowledge and understanding to live their lives.

    Ummah Welfare Trust is appealing to donors to help provide for this project. Zakah, Sadaqah and Lillah can be given to support a new Muslim child.

    To educate one child costs just £15 a month. This is just 50p a day.

    On the Day of Judgement, there will be no regret for that donor who helped educate these children inshaAllah.

    If your new Muslim has to leave the sponsorship programme for any reason, the remainder of your funds will be allocated to the next available child and a replacement detail sheet will be sent out to you as soon as possible
