By the mercy of Allah the Hajj season is fast approaching and with Allah’s permission, the Mauritania Foundation is hoping to sponsor the slaughtering of 200 sheep at a cost of $140 USD per sheep for distribution to the poor and needy throughout Mauritania. There is also the option to sponsor the slaughtering of cows which costs $450 USD per cow.
These funds need to be received by our September 1st deadline to ensure the animals are purchased, slaughtered, and distributed in time. We recommend to everyone that can afford it to donate at least $140, the cost to purchase a single sheep, or $450, the cost to purchase a single cow. All donations are welcomed and appreciated.
We pray that you will be able to donate and encourage others to donate to this noble cause. There is tremendous Barakah in both assisting the poor and providing food for the needy. Insha’Allah by donating to this initiative you will receive Barakah for both. We pray that everyone who Allah blesses to make Hajj this season will receive a Hajj Mabrur wa Maqbul and exit the Haram the same way they were born into this world, free from sin. Allah says in the Qur'an:
وَالْبُدْنَ جَعَلْنَاهَا لَكُمْ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ ۖ فَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهَا صَوَافَّ ۖ فَإِذَا وَجَبَتْ جُنُوبُهَا فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْقَانِعَ وَالْمُعْتَرَّ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ سَخَّرْنَاهَا لَكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ
"And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful." - Suratul Hajj
Barak Allahu Feekum!
