Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd (ra): The Prophet said, I and the person who looks after an Orphan and provides for him, will be (together) in Paradise like this - putting his index and middle fingers together. (Saheeh Al Bukhari, Book 8, Volume 73, Hadith 34 )
The Allah's Word Islamic complex is now complete (2014). The complex which is built by YOU (Your donations), consists of An orphanage, A Children's Refuge (Built side by side), A Mosque and Islamic Education centre, A Primary School, Agricultural development plot, Occupational Training centre, Social Business centre and auditorium.
We had to knock down the original orphanage that we built to expand the elevated land to include the Children's Refuge centre and so, thousands of dollars were spent on land fill (dirt) to be brought in to build up the land around the complex to protect it from floods. As you can see in the video and the photos, the land is much higher than the land around it and the complex was put to the test this year (2014) when floods devastated the area once again and the only place of refuge was the Allah's Word Complex, Al Humdoolilah (All Praise is Due to ALLAH).
Desparate locals all crammed into the complex including their livestock as it was the only dry land for miles.
Originally, the Children's refuge was supposed to be built directly opposite the orphanage (where the primary school is located) but we decided to build a complex which included the primary school so the decision was made to build it side by side.
Unfortunately, the video (2nd video below) is of poor quality and many things that we asked to be filmed are not clearly marked out but due to the fact that all of the workers are volunteers, we couldn't really press them about the issue. It is enough that they are volunteers and we ask ALLAH to reward them abundantly for their efforts because without them, none of this would be possible. It is them who ensure that your donations are reaching the actual project rather than being wasted on admin fees which is the case in most charities.
We have already begun a new project of another Islamic Complex in an area about 20km away and yet another generous user has donated funds for the Mosque of that complex which is more of a grand mosque as it is twice the size of our previous mosques (See 1st video below for construction photos. Skip to 7:13 of the video). This mosque is the 4th mosque built by YOU, the AllahsWord.com users. Mosque number 3 is in the complex (See 1st video below. Skip to 2:06 of that video) and mosques 1 and 2 can be viewed by clicking the 'Older Projects' link below.
We are currently raising money for the Orphanage in that complex and you have the opportunity to donate for yet another project in the pleasure of ALLAH.
Donations will be divided into this complex and the new complex as this complex will require ongoing contributions to support the orphans and the destitute children within them, as will the new complex once it is completed In Shaa ALLAH.
We have one user who has set up a recurring payment with paypal and donates $50 every month and has been doing so for a while and another that donates $100 every month. We won't mention their names to allow their contributions to receive maximum reward (ie those who donate in secret) but these users have engaged in an act that is extremely pleasing to ALLAH. It is far more beneficial for you (a person giving charity) to do so on an ongoing basis rather than just a one off lump sum even though the amount is the same. Eg. It is better to donate $50 EVERY month for a year than it is to donate $600 once a year and it will be seen and credited to your Akhirah (afterlife) bank account as 12 acts of charity instead of 1. This will maximise your rewards In Shaa ALLAH and ALLAH knows best.
Please invite your friends and family here to donate and spread the barakah (Blessings) In Shaa ALLAH.
Only those whom have already donated can understand the liberating feeling of being part of this project has brought them and you too have the opportunity to join in, In Shaa ALLAH.
Deposit now into your Akhirah (afterlife) bank account as it is the ONLY bank account you will take with you. All other assets will be left behind!
There are no administration fees (except paypal fees) as the entire project is run by volunteers which means that 98% of your contribution will reach its intended destination (Paypal takes around 2%) so you can donate with confidence.
"They ask you, (O Muhammad), what they shall spend (In Charity). Say: that which you spend for good (must go) to Parents and near Kindred and Orphans and the needy and the wayfarer. And whatsoever good you do, lo! Allah is (Well) Aware of it."
