Assalamu Alaiykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatahu,
This page has been created because of an urgent need that has arisen in our community. As Muslims we have a moral and ethical duty to help alleviate the debt of others, whether it be our own sons, daughters or family members, we are all part of one Ummah and it is not until we start to understand this principle, will we see the victory come to us.
A dear member of our community, one who spread knowledge and goodness to thousands of Muslims across the country is in need of our help. Our brothers father has recently become trapped in a debt that carries with it the burden of interest-something we all must avoid in this dunya. The father has been ordered to pay an upfront amount of £25,000 or risk having his home taken away from him. This is a situation none of us want our own parents to be in.
This respected member of our community's father is a man of noble character and family, having witnessed his son go on to make a difference to so many people's lives here in the UK. This debt has come about from trying to gain an education for his son to study in the UK and provide for him. We in the UK have come to benefit from the fruits of that knowledge manifold and must do all we can to repay the favour this ramadan and onwards InshaAllah Ta'ala.
We will be questioned on the day of judgement as to how we helped our brothers, sisters and parents of the ummah when they were in need. We must pass this test.
JazakaAllah Khair ikhwaan, May Allah swt grant all those who contribute goodness and multiply their deeds for every penny that is given in this cause.
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever relieves the hardship of a believer in this world, Allah will relieve his hardship on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever helps ease someone in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever covers the faults of a Muslim, Allah will cover his faults in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah helps the servant as long as he helps his brother. Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise, for a people do not gather together in the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying together, except that tranquility will descend upon them, mercy will cover them, angels will surround them, and Allah will mention them to those with Him. Whoever is slow to good deeds will not be hastened by his lineage.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَنْ نَفَّسَ عَنْ مُؤْمِنٍ كُرْبَةً مِنْ كُرَبِ الدُّنْيَا نَفَّسَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةً مِنْ كُرَبِ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ وَمَنْ يَسَّرَ عَلَى مُعْسِرٍ يَسَّرَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَمَنْ سَتَرَ مُسْلِمًا سَتَرَهُ اللَّهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَاللَّهُ فِي عَوْنِ الْعَبْدِ مَا كَانَ الْعَبْدُ فِي عَوْنِ أَخِيهِ وَمَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيهِ عِلْمًا سَهَّلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَمَا اجْتَمَعَ قَوْمٌ فِي بَيْتٍ مِنْ بُيُوتِ اللَّهِ يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَيَتَدَارَسُونَهُ بَيْنَهُمْ إِلاَّ نَزَلَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّكِينَةُ وَغَشِيَتْهُمُ الرَّحْمَةُ وَحَفَّتْهُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَذَكَرَهُمُ اللَّهُ فِيمَنْ عِنْدَهُ وَمَنْ بَطَّأَ بِهِ عَمَلُهُ لَمْ يُسْرِعْ بِهِ نَسَبُهُ
