Weʼve raised £1,097 to help contribute towards the medical costs of my close cousin Zia Yaqub who has suffered tragic and life changing burns due to an accident.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This young man was severely injured and burnt in a tragic accident involving his motorcycle and a passing car in our home village in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. He was a young man who was not married and was the main carer for his elderly mother who is in a very understandable tragic state at the moment. They are a very poor family who have been over burdened with the costs involved in treating these life threatening burns.
Our religion of Islam is a religion of action and it teaches us to help one another primarily with out limbs and then alongside this with our tongue and prayers.
By helping in this noble cause then you will be aiding the poor about which the Prophet of Allah mentioned, " The one who helps the widow or the poor then it is as if he strives in the way of Allah."
You will also be helping your brother in distress and hardship. It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that a man came to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and said: O Messenger of Allah, which of the people is dearest to Allah? And which deeds are dearest to Allah? The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The dearest of people to Allah, may He be exalted, is the one who does most benefit to people, and the dearest of deeds to Allah, may He be exalted, is joy that you bring to a Muslim, or relieving him of distress, or paying off debt for him, or dispelling his hunger. And to walk with a brother to meet his needs is dearer to me than observing i‘tikaaf in this mosque – meaning the mosque of Madinah – for a month.”
To conclude this family does not have the ability to meet his medical needs and it is our job as a community, his family, his neighbours to take responsibility and fulfil his right upon us by contributing to this cause with the wealth that our Lord has given us to spend in His cause.
