How to support us?

Of course we would appreciate any support. In fact any form of support. Our beloved prophet (PBUH) said "If one gives sadaqah as equal as one date-fruit from the honestly earned money, and Allah accepts only the honestly earned money, Allah takes it in His right (hand) and then enlarges its reward for that person (who has given it), as anyone of you brings up his baby horse, so much so that it becomes as big as a mountain” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)" .

It will please you a great deal to learn that we're all volunteers, all 19 of us, many of us are students. We put countless hours every week (average of 10 to 12 hours a week per volunteer) to educate these kids about our Religion.  some of us are employed too and we do the 40hrs/week jobs, yet we chose to do this for the sake of Allah. We do it out of love for these kids, out of love to our religion, and with a strong sense of responsibility.

On many occasions we even spent money out of our own pocket (may Allah accepts it) simply to insure that the school continues to operate and support the children of this community.  Yet with all of these sacrifices and dedication we're still falling short on many aspects and we feel we're not meeting our own preset goals, of providing an excellent environment for our children where they can learn about our Religion. For that we're counting on you parents, community members, good Muslims,  to help. 

So now you ask how can you help, it is really simple:
  1. Visit us on a Sunday, encourage us (especially the teachers and the kids).  Our sisters left behind their families, husbands and daily chores to come and teach our kids, they do it weekend in and weekend out tirelessly and with devotion (May Allah bless them and bless their families).
  2. Donate money to one of these:
    1. Pay the tuition for one or more of the children (many of them are refugees with very limited means). It only costs $40/month per child
    2. Sponsor an event at the ICTWS (Activity day, food, drinks, books, school material, etc...)
    3. Make an open donation and we'll find a way to use it
  3. If you feel like donating to this community effort contact the school administrator during school hours (Sunday  at 9:45 am to 1pm), send him an email (, or talk to to any school staff.

As always we're open for your feedback, comments or critique.

Jazakum Allah Khairan,
