THE RACE TO JANNAH IS BACK!
In Ramadhan, a small team of fundraisers joined together and took part in the Race to Jannah.
For 30 days they promoted their JustGiving pages by any means - on
WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, some even making videos and getting their
parents involved in the fundraising. For many of the participants, the
target seemed daunting; indeed some had never fundraised before. But
with sincere intentions, du'a and the help of Allah they made it. Within
48 hours, people who had never fundraised prior to this, managed to
collect £1000. They made images, they made videos; they reached out to
friends and family, all in aid of some of the most vulnerable families
in the UK.
And with their efforts they were able to raise an amazing total of £67,714!
With Dhul Hijjah around the corner, the Race to Jannah picks
up speed as we are presented with another opportunity – even greater in
virtue than the days of Ramadhan, in which we are encouraged to do good:
The Prophet ﷺ said, “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” The people asked, “Not even Jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said, “Not
even Jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went
out, giving himself and his wealth up for the cause (of Allah), and came
back with nothing.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]
this Dhul Hijjah, we ask you, to do your best and make an effort to
raise £100 a day. In order to do this you will have full support of the
HHUGS team who will you promotional materials and fundraising tips
throughout the process. All it takes is letting your friends and family
that you need 10 of them to donate £10.
And if £100 seems
daunting, then we ask you to raise just £10 a day, so £100 over the
whole of the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah.
And if after you put
in the effort, all the hard work, you aren't able to reach your target,
then do not despair. As long you put in sincere effort, then you will
be rewarded for your intention! So it’s a win-win situation!
