Sponsored Walk for Ramadhan Solutions- WE DID IT! PLEASE DONATE!

6 Aug

When we were told that all donations given to Islamic Relief would be doubled this Ramadhan, we knew that we absolutely had to do a challenge for their Ramadhan Solutions. With only a short amount of time to plan it, we rounded together a group of sisters and sorted out a route. By the 3rd of August, we had over 20 participants signed up to do the walk, from Waterloo to Shepherds Bush, while fasting. After a testing few hours, our walk which was full of Barakah, came to an end. As usual, our intentions were to raise awareness and money, as well as bringing together sisters, all while giving abit of dawah through action along the way. We pray to Allah that we fulfilled our intentions, and that all the donors and participants are rewarded immensely, ameen.

There still time to donate, click HERE

Here are afew pics from the walk- enjoy! (Many apologies to the participants, some pictures somehow got deleted, sorry to anyone who was in any of the group pics with the homeless man, they have disappeared from my camera!)

Sister Kiren with her 11 year old daughter Aliya, who fasted and walked all the way with us, may Allah reward her- she is surely a reflection of a good mother- maa shaa Allah!

Having a break- waiting to meet more sisters at Victoria

This homeless man called us over as we walked past. Reluctantly, some of the girls walked over. We stared in shock and he pulled out a pound from his pocket and dropped it into one of our boxes. We spent some time with him and gave him an iEra dawah card. Many of us were in tears at the thought of someone who had nothing, giving to charity. Amazing.

Maghrib close by…unfortunately at this point we were nowhere close to Shepherds Bush- LOL

Approaching Shepherds Bush- alHamdulillah!
