Miftaahul Falaah is aimed at enriching Syrian youth through education. We have observed that many youngsters have had to leave their homes and schools due to the war and as a result, struggle to find their place in society. We at Miftaahul Falaah, believe that the correct education is the key to success and in order to facilitate that, we have developed a list of projects which we hope will be of benefit in this regard.
1) An up-and-running madrasah. This project began last year with the motivation of the South African community. Under the direction of Sister Maseeha Saloojee, the madrasah accepted fifteen students for basic Islamic studies. These students were later divided into categories according to their individual needs. The madrasah will resume after Eid and accept more students as well as employ more teachers inshaAllah. (REF: 001)
2) A national hifdh memorization competition. This project was initiated months back after consultation with SANQC (South African National Qur'an Council) but had to be delayed due an emergenc medical situation. Regionals will resume after Eid inshaAllah after which winners will make their way to the finals which will cater for participants in all areas of liberated Syria. (REF: 002)
3) A library. This project was initiated a while back by a brother in the UK, but unfortunately there were difficulties in getting the books sent over. We have found a possible solution for this and intend to continue this project inshaAllah. (REF: 003)
4) Volunteer salaries. One of the main reasons that the youth are unable to furthe their educational goals is that many teachers have resorted to other means of income, just for a wage to feed their families. This project is aimed at providing all volunteers who spend their time and efforts to service the people, with the necessary funds to pass their day-to-day lives.(REF: 004)
5)Language courses: this project is aimed at providing Syrian youth with the necessary language to communicate should they ever need to venture beyond Syria. We intend to start with Turkish (it being the main neighbouring country through which Syrians travel) and English (as this langauge dominates majority of the world). Please provide references in comments section so that we know which projects you are funding. Funding can be done anonymously.(REF: 005)
Zakaah is accepted for project four, which only targets zakaah eligible individuals. Please note that project four is not only restricted to teachers, but also aid workers, doctors, media personnel and those who defend their Muslim brethren. Only zakaatable individuals are eligible for this project.
We pray that Allah makes these projects a success, forgivesour shortcomings and accepts from us. Aameen.
