They ask you, [O Muhammad], what they should spend. Say, “Whatever you spend of good is [to be] for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good – indeed, Allah is Knowing of it. – Holy Quran 2:215
Charity is of the essence in this month and what better way then to give charity in your own backyard. Partnering with ILM Foundation, SMC will join other Muslims on June 9th in Santa Ana to assemble life kits for the less fortunate. The event will be from 9 am to 1 pm and SMC needs volunteers to participate in this noble cause.
Don’t let this opportunity be missed, especially during the nights and days of Laylu-Qadr.
The 8th Imam, Imam Ridha (A.S.), reminds us: “Give charity even with a small amount because indeed all that is intended for the sake of Allah; although it may be small it becomes great after having an honest intention.” Wasa’il Shia, Vol 1. P 115
