10 thousand Pounds A Night, never underestimate the power of Dua

The first time I made Dua consciously, was on Eid 5 years ago. I received the response of the invocation the next day and my life changed drastically. I end up being in a different country, speaking a different language,writing in different language, being around different people. However as the years went by I forgot about the power of Dua, I forgot about the promise I made to the creator. Miraculously it did not change the course of my life and the nature of the Dua. would it been for my own endeavours trying to keep the promise,Wa’llahi you would not read a single letter on this blog.Yet here I am speaking to you  in the first person and telling you that this post in itself is the empirical evidence for the Power of Dua.

Two weeks ago Islam Hounslow rekindled the very feeling that I had 5 years ago by raising 10 K in a night for Syria. Who would have thought 5 years ago that Social Media could have such impact on a micro campaign

10k

The 10 K a night fundraiser campaign consisted of 3 minute videos as update to motivated people to donate. A good way of stimulating the engagement between donors and raiser. Brother Imran Ibn Mansur or also known as Dawah Man ( may Allah   keep him sincere and raise him in the highest ranks in jennah)  was constantly updating the whole process. Usually fundraisers are announced or scheduled. Well not this time 7 hours  is all what it took to raise 50% of the the target.

A night of Spirituality and unity among the Ummah, was the best example of what we could do if only would work more cohesively.

Beside the £10, 000, Islam Hounslow also were involved in completing a 40ft container. The container was full of clothes, food and toys for all ages. An initiative that has become unusual Ramandan, which is slowly fiding it’s way back to the Muslim community.

Islam Hounslow is currently working in partnership to “Shoebox4Syria”. The concept behind the campaign is simple, but could mean a world to the children in Syria. 5000 shoeboxes full of gifts for children in Syria for Eid 2014.

The inspiration for the idea came last year when Islam Hounslow was part of UK´s largest convoy to Syria in Europe. This pretty much was the stepping stone for west London based Dawah organisation to continuously support the humanitarian causes to for the people of Syria.

Shoebox4Syria’s mission statement in about Sharing mutual feelings  during Eid with the people of Syria. If smiling is charity, a smile on these children faces is well deserved .Celebrating Eid knowing the Muslim across the globe are in peace,is what Shoebox4Syria want to achieve.
The idea itself is really pragmatic, have at least 5000 shoeboxes, filled with presents for the Children in Syria before Ramadhan.
Mangerial skills and lot of Dua are needed. Holding horses back would only decrease the productive capacity of the project. 5000 boxes compared to 2 million displaced Syrians is only the beginning of this long journey. It only take us hours to raise 10, 000 pounds what could we do in months, or years with the combined force of the Ummah and the help of Allah
