Assalamu’alaikum wr.wb. IFA members,
“The level of violence in Palestine has escalated to a point not seen in years. Airstrikes have decimated entire sections within the Gaza Strip, and raids have been extended in various areas throughout the West Bank. And after a ground invasion began in Gaza, an already difficult humanitarian situation became even worse. More than 600 people have been killed, and over 3,200 have been injured.” (Islamic Relief)
“A musholla located in Bandung, Indonesia, used for daily prayers, daily Al-Quran clasess for kids and parents is in a bad form. Its roof is damaged, it lacks of rain protection, its wall is incomplete, and its wudhu facilities is in a really poor condition (see attached figures).” (Br. Averrouz Mostavan – an IFA member)
Those two places, Gaza and musholla in Bandung, need our help. Thus, IFA Ramadan Committee initiate a program for IFA members to generously donate their Zakat for Gaza and Shodaqoh for Musholla development in Indonesia. We receive Zakat only or Zakat and/or Shodaqoh, if it is not specified 60% from the donation will go to Gaza through Islamic Relief. The 40% of donation will go to a Musholla in Bandung which will be coordinated by Br. Averrouz, our IFA Ramadhan committee.
