MASJID MUHAMMAD Hafiz Student FUNDRAISER for Ramadan 2009!!!

MASJID MUHAMMAD Hafiz Student FUNDRAISER for Ramadan 2009!!!

Sura Al-Baqarah (2:261) “The parable of those who spend their substance In the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn: it groweth seven ears, and Each ear hath a hundred grains. Allah giveth manifold increase to whom He pleaseth: and Allah careth for all and He knoweth all things.”

Masjid Muhammad’s Board of Trustees is working hard to make this Ramadan the best Ramadan yet. Classically trained Hafiz student Adrian Kirk (“Ashir”) has agreed to share his knowledge of Qur’an with our community this Ramadan. We are taking up a collection for him that will help him in his continued studies. He has been memorizing Qur’an at a hafiz school in Morroco.

Although he has agreed to accept whatever funds we are able to collect, we are raising the bar. We would like to raise $4,500 to cover the cost of his lodging, round trip plane ticket and put some money in his pocket so that he can continue his studies. If 45 people give $100, we will be able to meet this goal.
