“Assalamu alaykum everyone. Myself and my wife (Umm Abdullah) have travelled out to spend this Eid of 2017 with the Rohingya refugees of Burma to hear some of their stories and start chariatable projects to help improve their lives.
This project of ours was started before the crisis in late August and we saw the sudden rise of refugees crossing over the border. We started this page so you can all have the chance to be a part of this beautiful project to support the most needy amongst them with the intention of earning the pleasure of Allah while bringing some happiness to their dark and sad lives.
A bit of background information on the situation of the Muslim Rohingya Refugees. Burma has a total population of 52 Million, 90% of whom are Buddhist while Muslims make up only 4% (2 million).
With ignorance and prejudice being widespread, there have been constant reports of rape, torture, and murder in the most inhumane ways against the minority of Muslims along with many other human rights violations.
Even some of the state police have been found to be involved in carrying out these crimes against them.
Amnesty International has labelled the Rohingya as “the most persecuted refugees in the world.”
Individuals or groups of people who attempt to flee are either killed even before they leave or they are left stranded at the sea after being pushed away from the shores of neighbouring countries such as Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Many of those who do eventually reach the shore become victims of human trafficking and are sold.
So our aim is to meet them offer emotional and mental support as well as food and shelter, for those people who have lost everything including their dignity, family and possessions.
We can never imagine the trauma they had to go through while seeing a loved one being shredded to pieces or being burnt alive after witnessing the person being raped before their eyes.
Remember that when you help these people, you are actually helping yourself because every good deed that you do erases a previous sin of yours.
We will personally be distributing the funds and managing the charitable projects InshaAllah.You have two options of donating.

May Allah reward you all.”
