Prior to the month of last Ramadan, my great grandfather Maulana Abdul-Noor Khan had been battling against COVID-19. After a long and painful 3 week fight, on the 3rd night of the blessed month of Ramadan, my great grandfather passed away at the age of 101.
In Bangladesh, education is not readily available in every district thus, students and children are required to travel great lengths by foot to obtain it. My late great grandfather used to educate children who would come hours away to his home and overfill it.
It is now my (Homayra) shared goal to carry out his wishes, alongside my grandfather Dr. Abul Lais Khan, who is directly overseeing this project in Bangladesh with his committee and shares the envision to build an Islamic education center for women and children, providing a place where women children and everyone can come for Eid prayers without having to travel to far places, and to learn education free of cost. These women and children will have chance to learn general education reading writing ✍️ and also general Islamic education, Arabic caligraphy to write the Quran and more.
This mosque + islamic school is in Alinogor union, Ramdhabazar, Chondogram, Sylhet, Bangladesh.
Why should I help?
You can help them rebuild with literacy so they can avoid labour jobs and their mothers can escape tiring jobs and start to empower herself with education and seek out greater opportunities. Child labour is a huge problem in Bangladesh and many children are stuck working in clothing factories all their life some Scarcely able to even read a word but if this school is build it can enable these student to learn free of cost.
With every penny you donate, you give us the chance to build classrooms for these children who otherwise would not have a chance to be educated due to long distances. For every child that learns in this establishment you will receive reward, for every person they teach in the future you will receive that reward as well. Around 5000 families will be forever grateful and you will give the gift of education to these children and women.
Please donate to this cause and help us transform their lives. Consider donating everday during the last ten days of Ramadan for a chance to catch Laylatul Qadr and have your sadaqa multiplied. Even 10 dollars goes a long way.
The Messenger ﷺ said: “When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, beneficial knowledge and a righteous son who will pray for him.” Narrated by Muslim, 3084 This is a great opportunity for sadaqah jaariyah which is continuous good deeds that will follow you even after your passing.
Masha'allah, through family donations as well as last year's donations we were able to start the work of the mosque and it has gained popularity in Bangladesh because it is a community school which many women and children rely on.
As you can see in the video the building for the school is very out of shape and students and women are unable to learn there. Construction has started due to last year's donations however We need additional help continuing this construction for children, free of cost. If this is made possible, we can help around 5000 children and families living in Sylhet, but we need you to help us make this possible.
How can you help?
Even a small amount contributes to obtaining a huge reward. However there are some amounts that can exemplify your reward such as paying for a wudu area, fans, a bookshelf for the Islamic school, a brick, a room. Even if you think your donation is going nowhere just remember allah will multiply and provide wealth and provide blessings in sha allah we will be focusing on renovating and working in building and rooms but family donations will also help with construction so this fundraiser will be kept open for as long as it takes until the school is fully built in sha allah
