As-Suffa is organising a huge trek for all the brothers at As-Suffa to support two student part time classes that have made £10,000 pledges each. We need your support to come on Saturday 6th October to help raise money for the As-Suffa Sub-Zero project that helps homeless people spend the night in our Lionel Street shelter instead of the freezing pavements of Birmingham City Centre.
Helping the community and our neighours is part and parcel of our deen as The Messenger of Allah, (Peace and blessings be upon him) said:” He is not a believer who eats his fill whilst his neighbor beside him goes hungry” (Bukhari).
The Sub-Zero project is an addition to our current services of the Homeless Soup Kitchen which takes place 4 days a week at our Lionel Street Centre. It was started to help our guests spend the cold winter nights in a safe and warm place away from freezing temperatures. This could literally be the difference between life and death. More importantly; none of us would ever wish to be in a situation whereby we have to spend our days and nights on the streets let alone on nights where the temperature plummets below ZERO.
As well as a warm place to sleep our guests get a fulfilling breakfast each night they spend with us. All of As-Suffa’s services are FREE of charge at the point of use; however we go through great lengths to raise money so we can help pay for services that benefit our communities and neighbors.
The best of people are those who benefit mankind.
