"They ask you (O Muhammad) what they should spend (In charity). Say: Whatever wealth you spend, it is for the parents and the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer, and whatever good you do, Allah surely knows it.  (Holy Qur’an, Surah Al Baqarah; 2:215)
 
The Africa Federation Secretariat is pleased to launch the annual Ramadhan Relief Fund 1435 AH (2014).
 
Every year, the Africa Federation in collaboration with the World Federation provides assistance to the Jamaats and Institutions under the Africa Federation to cater for the deserving and needy people to make fasting in the holy month of Ramadhan comfortable for everyone. 
 
A worldwide campaign has been initiated by the World Federation in partnership with its Regional Federations. The support of the Community Members in donating funds is vital to the overall success in meeting the basic needs of many struggling families during the holy month of Ramadhan. This is an appeal for a noble cause and compassion.
 
Members are requested to contribute generously towards this Fund.  You may send your contributions to your Jamaat or to the Africa Federation Secretariat Office in Dar-es-Salaam.

My dear community members,
 
Salaamun Alaikum,

Remembering victims of the terrorists attacks

While we are celebrating the birth of Imam of our time, al Mahdi al Hujjah (ATFS) tonight and the day that follows this beautiful and revered night of 15th Shab’an, I send you this brief message on this auspicious occasion.  
 
I am deeply saddened to see the current terrorist attacks in several parts of Iraq and Syria, the loss of innocent lives and displacements of the peace loving people of these countries. I urge you all to remember these innocent people and victims of terrorists’ attacks in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and other countries where such acts of violence are taking place.
 
In these important days and nights of the revered month of Sha’ban, please remember these victims and pray for their safety, peace and well being.
