The Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “I and the one who looks after an orphan and provides for him will be in paradise like this,” putting his index and middle fingers together.
Ulfa Aid has launched an appeal to complete the Kitengela Orphanage, Kenya. This is a unique project ? neither the unpaid committee in Kenya (who have 23 years experience at the Muthurwa Orphanage), nor Ulfa Aid here, will take any ?administration? charges out of your donations. We seek to finish construction of classrooms and dormitories at this new site to give more street children a chance of rebuilding their lives.
With the month of the birth of the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) soon upon us, Ulfa Aid and the Muslim Professional Network invite you to put into practice the prophetic message of caring for the orphan. Join us for an evening with Sidi Abdullah Trevathan, an opportunity to purchase original artwork, and an audience with Muhibbe-e-Rasul.
* Sidi Abdullah Trevathan is a respected academic and educationalist. He has had a variety of roles in British Muslim society, including as headmaster of Islamia Primary School. Amongst his current responsibilities is lecturing in Religious Education and Theology at Roehampton University. He resides both in London and Andalusia, where he recently hosted the forthcoming BBC documentary, ?The Retreat?.
*Muhibbe-e-Rasul are a traditional group of qasaid and nasheed singers. Their use of traditional rhythms, techniques and poetry combine to create a unique sound, rarely heard in central London.
Please donate generously at www.justgiving.com/orphanage. A small sacrifice by all of us here will change the lives of generations of children, who are forced onto the streets by poverty, orphaned by AIDS or abandoned by their parents.
Please forward this e-mail, and attached flyer onto your mailing list(s) and encourage everyone to attend!
Look forward to seeing you all there!
