Are you involved in the 99 Orphans Project? Our goal is to sponsor 99 Orphans in 2013, and Insha allah, we will. Are you wondering why you should help? Well, there are many reasons. First of all, it's part of our deen to help. We'll get Hasanat/Ajr for what we do.
Then, of course, because it'll help orphans! Whatever you do helps! :) Helping orphans will make you a philanthropist, which means you are a caring and giving person. Abu Hurairah (RA) reported that the Messenger (SAW) said, "The best house among the Muslims is one where an orphan is well treated, and the worst house among the Muslims is one where an orphan is badly treated."
Now that you know about the 99 Orphans Project and why you should help, here is the next step: get involved! The easiest way to lend a hand is to spread the word. Word-of-mouth is the best way to get information out there for free.
Finally, you can attend our events. Hopefully, we'll achieve our goal, and sponsor 99 orphans, but we can't do it without you!
