“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” [Tirmidhi]
Being caring and compassionate for one’s fellow human beings is a central part of Islam. When reading the Qur’an, one cannot help being struck by the number of times charity is mentioned: Feeding the poor and needy, supporting orphans, relatives and travelers, spending in the way of Allah… All of these references emphasize the importance of charity for every Muslim.
Constant kindness can accomplish much…” During these difficult times, we as human beings and neighbors can choose to help other neighbors.
Sheikh Sharif Foundation Charity is a 100% volunteer-based and non profit.
The Sheikh Sharif Foundation Charity, was originally created in late March of 2020, to help out the less fortunate, needy, orphans and the helpless in our local neighborhood. We established this fund for the self-quarantined elderly and immuno-compromised to request free delivery of food and supplies. Volunteers around the World are called upon to fund this charity work for the sake of helping our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Less than a month after establishing this charity fund, the program has amassed over 200 volunteers and we have completed over 450 requests across many refugee camps. All of this is possible due to your generous support.
Sheikh Sharif Foundation Charity Fund would also like to help those who are affected by a job loss, being food insecure, or for whatever reasons due to COVID-19. We are asking for donations to help those people in the refugee camps and in Somalia. We are entirely volunteer-based, so every single dollar donated goes directly to someone in need.
“You will not believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.”“The believers are like one body in their mutual love and affection: if one limb is injured, the rest responds with sleeplessness and fever.” (Prophet Muhammad PBUH)
If a Muslim feels the pain of his or her fellow human being, and wishes the same comfort and good life for others which he wishes for himself, it is a natural reaction to give in charity, to ease this suffering.
