A Call for Generosity

مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنْبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنْبُلَةٍ مِائَةُ حَبَّةٍ وَاللَّهُ يُضَاعِفُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

2:261 The example of those who spend their property in the way of Allah is as that of a grain growing seven ears (with) a hundred grains in every ear; and Allah multiplies for whom He pleases; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing

The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wassalam) has said: “Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people).”   Narrated by Imam Muslim 

The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wassalam) has said: “Verily the most beloved actions in the sight of Allah are those which are continuous, even though they may be little”   Narrated by Imam Muslim

Support the Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation

The Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation, in its mission to nurture and serve the Muslim community, has embarked on an ambitious journey to consolidate its operations and spiritual services under one roof. We have acquired two strategic properties located at 7045 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60645, and 6201 N California Ave, Chicago, IL 60659. These locations are destined to house our three pivotal divisions and establish a masjid, creating a comprehensive center for Islamic education and worship.

The Reward of Continuous Charity (Al-Sadaqah Al-Jariyyah)

Contributing to the Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation offers the unique opportunity to engage in a form of continuous charity, a noble deed whose benefits extend beyond this life into the hereafter. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us that among the deeds that will reach a believer after their death is knowledge which they taught and spread, a righteous child who prays for them, and a continuous charity (al-sadaqah al-jariyyah) they leave behind. Investing in the foundation’s facilities is a manifestation of this timeless form of charity.

The Virtue of Becoming a Recurring Donor

In addition to our heartfelt appeal for support in various forms, we especially encourage our community members to consider becoming recurring donors to the Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation. Engaging in regular, sustained giving is a powerful way to contribute towards the ongoing success and impact of our initiatives. Here are several compelling reasons and encouragements for embracing the role of a recurring donor:

Sustained Impact

Recurring donations provide a steady stream of support that is critical for long-term planning and sustainability. By committing to a monthly, quarterly, or annual contribution, you enable the Foundation to reliably budget for future projects, maintenance, and educational programs, ensuring that our vital services continue without interruption.

Amplifying Your Contribution

Over time, regular donations accumulate, potentially surpassing what might have been a one-time gift. This means your overall impact is magnified, directly contributing to the Foundation’s ability to pay down the building debt, support our educators, maintain our facilities, and expand our educational offerings.

Ease and Convenience

Becoming a recurring donor is not only beneficial for the Foundation but also convenient for you. Set up once, your donations will automatically be made in the frequency you choose, removing the need to remember to make individual contributions and ensuring your continuous support even during busy periods.

A Living Legacy

Regular contributions are a testament to your ongoing commitment to Islamic education and community service. This form of continuous charity (al-sadaqah al-jariyyah) stands as a living legacy, a beacon of your faith and values that will continue to benefit the community and earn you rewards in the hereafter.

Spiritual Rewards

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) highlighted the exceptional value of continuous charity; Allah (SWT) multiplies the rewards for such deeds, benefiting the donor both in this world and the next. Your recurring donation is an investment in your hereafter, a source of ongoing blessings that will, Insha’Allah, adorn your scale of good deeds.

Become a Recurring Donor

We warmly invite you to take this step towards becoming a recurring donor. By doing so, you join a dedicated group of supporters who are pivotal to the foundation’s resilience and capacity to serve. Your regular contributions are more than financial aid; they are a reflection of your unwavering support for the preservation and dissemination of Islamic knowledge and community welfare.

Special Prayer for Donors

In gratitude for your generosity, special prayers will be offered for all who contribute to the Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation. Your support is a beacon of hope and faith, and we pray that Allah (SWT) rewards you abundantly in this life and the hereafter.

Conclusion

The Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation stands at a pivotal moment, and your support is crucial for us to continue serving the Muslim community effectively. Each contribution, no matter the size, is a step towards fulfilling our collective responsibility and leaving a lasting legacy of faith, knowledge, and unity. We invite you to join us in this noble endeavor, earning rewards that will echo through eternity.

The Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation’s mission to house its divisions, establish a masjid, and provide a comprehensive center for Islamic education and worship is a communal endeavor that requires the collective efforts of us all. Becoming a recurring donor is a powerful way to be part of this noble cause, ensuring that your generosity leaves a lasting impact on the lives of many. Join us in this journey of faith, education, and community service, and let us together build a legacy that will continue to benefit the Ummah for generations to come.
