Wanting for Our Brother
Muslims Come Together to Support Imam Siraj
The Prophet (pbuh) said: 'None of you truly believes until
he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.'
An April 25th online fundraiser was organized by two young adults Tariq Subhani and Nihal Khan in cooperation with Imam Siraj and MANA. Both from the New York area, Tariq and Nihal brought together a powerful list of Muslim leaders from around the world who gave emotional testimonials about Imam Siraj (visit www.helpimamsiraj.com to hear recordings).
The goal was to raise $100,000 and approximately $25,000 was raised from this online event. Alhamdulillah! We want to thank all the great scholars who took part in the online fundraiser. Your talks were illuminating and inspiring. We also want to thank all of you who called in or listened via Internet and donated money.
Subsequent to the April 25th fundraiser Imam Shuaib Webb recommended that a day be devoted to raising money for Imam Siraj. MSA National took up the call and organized May 8th as Imam Siraj Day, calling him “America's Imam”. The intention was to encourage the Ummah to collectively continue their efforts to support Imam Siraj. At the end of the day approximately 16,000 was raised online from this effort. Alhamdulillah!
Prior to these two events other donations have been made in response to MANA’s original newsletter announcement and word of mouth. The total raised from all donations to date is approximately $80, 000. MashaAllah!
We pray that Allah unites the hearts of all Muslims in this country and support a great Imam and work together. We specially pray for Imam Siraj Wahhaj's speedy recovery and for a long prosperous life.
