Dhul Hijjah Appeal

تضاعف فيها الحسنات قال ابن عباس”: العمل فيهن بسبعمائة ضعف”

Ibn ‘Abbas said: “(The reward for good) deeds are multiplied seven hundred times in these days.”

The first of the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah are amongst the holiest and most sacred days of the Islamic Calendar. The impact of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic has meant changes for us this year, Hajj among them.

Whilst we may be experiencing changes that prevent us from physically being closer to Allah (Hajj!), spiritually we’re still reminded to turn toward him, and can do so through prayer, kindness and generosity.

Give a gift that goes BEYOND this Dhul Hijjah and reap the rewards by sponsoring an orphaned child! When you sponsor a child with us at READ, you’re giving children, from toddlers to adolescence, a chance at a better future.

What better time to do that than during this incredible month!
