MANA SHARE RAMADAN APPEAL

FEED THE HUNGRY…CLOTHE THE POOR

A Ramadan Appeal to Increase MANA SHARE Presence

imam siraj wahhaj in front of treesBrothers and Sisters, we need your help. Today, there is a huge demand for social services in  inner-city communities nationwide.  For more than half a decade, and with your support, MANA has been able to help fill some of the unmet needs for social services for the economically disadvantaged, via MANA SHARE Centers. We have established and operate  food and clothing banks, feed hot meals to the homeless, sponsor job fairs, and provide employment services that assist both the unemployed and under-employed to become self-sustaining.  Now, as these needs continue to grow in the current economy, we need your support to expand the number of social service centers working under the MANA SHARE umbrella.

We have set a goal of  raising $100,000 this Ramadan to help increase the SHARE Center presence in America.  To meet this goal, a minimum of one thousand sisters and brothers must be willing to donate at least $100 each to MANA SHARE.  All donations are tax-deductible and zakah-eligible.

You know that I have often asked for financial support for other worthy organizations and projects…now I am asking you to support a project that is also worthy…an organization and project that I helped to establish and that we should all want to see grow.

Ibn Abbas (raa) is authentically reported to have said, "The Prophet (sws) was the most generous of people, and he was even more generous during the month of Ramadan…when Angel Jibreel used to meet him every night during Ramadan…the Prophet (sws) used to recite the Qur’an to Jibreel, and when Jibreel met him, he was more generous than a swift wind (that brings rain and well-being)". (Bukhari)

Our appeal to you is to emulate the generosity of our Prophet (sws), and to be most generous during this sacred month, by  donating on behalf of the poor and needy. May Allah magnify the reward of all efforts on behalf of the weakest among us.

Please help this effort to be successful.

What is a MANA SHARE Center?

SHARE – Services for Human Advancement and Resource Enhancement

  • A SHARE Center is a social service center for the economic and social advancement of inner-city communities.
  • Our motto:  "Serving Allah through serving others."
  • Our Vision: to provide services and advocacy for the physical and spiritual needs of the inner-city communities we serve.
  • Our Goal: to assist in the development of individual, family, and community self-sufficiency, and to provide the tools and guidance to individuals so that they can become healthy, whole, righteous human beings.


SHARE SHOWS MUSLIMS CARE

MANA SHARE Centers reach out to  Muslim and non-Muslim families alike. Services that MANA SHARE provides show Muslims are visibly "concerned and helping" neighbors–a vital part of the community.  So, as we are doing our duty as Muslims–supporting our Muslim and non-Muslim families in need–we are at the same time, creating friends for the Muslim community.
