Editorâ€™s note: Many of you remember TMOâ€™s recent profile of Asma Hanif, documenting her diligent work to support the community. Now we can see that she is in a difficult situation and could use your help.
â€œI donâ€™t know how to say â€˜noâ€™…if I do…what will I say to Allah on the day of judgement? How could I admit that I didnâ€™t aid His servant?No…if a sister or a family needs my help…I have t0 respond.â€
— Asma Hanif
BORN TO HELP
As a young girl–and even before she embraced Islam–Asma had a deep desire to help others; so it came as no surprise that Asma would study nursing, and open a community free clinic (Al-Nissa Holistic Health Center) and then a shelter for Muslim women(Muslimat Al-Nissa); and work tirelessly in both.
Please help Asma continue her work with a tax-deductible donation to Muslimat Al-Nissa
WHEN HELPING HURTS
Asma recently lost her mother in death. Her mother had been ill for some time and Asmaâ€™s hope was to be able to personally care for her mother in her last days. However, her work in the clinic and shelter never allowed her to feel free to leave Maryland. Today, she struggles not only with the knowledge that she was not with her mother in her last moments–but also the debt of her motherâ€™s final expenses.
Please help relieve Asmaâ€™s burden with words of condolence and a donation today.
On behalf of MANA Majlis, Shura and Staff we express our most sincere and heart-felt condolences to Sr. Asma on the passing of her mother. May Allah Almighty strengthen and comfort you in your time of grief.
