"Alhumdulilah, we are extremely humbled and pleased to announce the 4th International office of the Al-Imdaad Foundation."

Asalamualaikum Wr Wb. Peace be upon you and your family. Let the choicest of mercies and salutations be upon our Noble and beloved master, a mercy unto mankind, Nabi Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. In keeping in conformity with the noble teachings of our Aakabireen (pious predecessors), let us take this opportunity to revive the sunnah of our Master, Nabi Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. For indeed, Nabi Muhammad Salahu Alayhi Wasalam has mentioned, “He who does not follow my Sunnah, is not of me.” From this Hadith, we are inspired to propel ourselves in making the extra effort in following the beautiful Sunnah of our Noble Master, Nabi Sallalahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. In recent days, many Seerah Jalsas have also been concluded across the globe reminding us of the beautiful life of Nabi Muhammad Salahu Alayhi Wasalam and his noble efforts in bringing this beautiful way of life before us. May ALLAH TA’ALA shower his choicest mercies and blessing upon the light of the worlds, Nabi Muhammad Salahu Alayhi Wasalam. As the year progresses rapidly, so are we experiencing a rapid increase in natural and man-made disasters. In a span of a few days, we have witnessed extreme flooding in Australia, a devastating earthquake in New Zealand, turmoil in Libya and a deadly tsunami in Japan. This phenomenon has certainly kept us abreast in the humanitarian fraternity and humanitarian network. On the international front, we are still busy with our reconstruction programmes in Pakistan after the infamous floods of 2010. We have also just concluded a successful humanitarian mission to Ras Adjir (Choucha Refugee Relief Camp), Tunisia and Salloum, Egypt where our relief teams worked tirelessly and under severe conditions to serve the thousands of refugees fleeing the violence and unrest in Libya. Alhumdulilah, the Al-Imdaad Foundation has received numerous compliments and has featured in many press articles for it’s humanitarian efforts seeing to the needs of the fleeing refugees. On the home front, our SLICE4LIFE Campaign has gained tremendous support from all walks of life. Many hospitals and clinics across South Africa are benefiting from this initiative. As the winter season sets in, we are gearing up for a robust winter warmth distribution across all 9 provinces; and with the help of ALLAH TA’ALA and our wishful donors, we hope to roll out some 50 000 quality blankets countrywide-INSHALLAH! Amidst the sad news of so many disasters, the future is not that bleak for us. Alhumdulilah, we are extremely humbled and pleased to announce the 4th International office of the Al-Imdaad Foundation. We have just recently inaugurated our office in the United Kingdom. This comes with the many requests of donors and well-wishers residing in the UK. May ALLAH TA’ALA always allow us to serve humanity in the path and manner shown to us by our beloved Nabi, Nabi Muhammad Salahu Alayhi Wasalam. An important note to all our donors is that we have been informed by ALBARAKA BANK that our existing savings account (A/C 4002904601) held at it’s Durban Branch has now been phased out and is no longer offered as a product of the bank. We are in a process of opening a new INTERNET BANKING ACCOUNT, details of which will be forwarded to you shortly. In the meantime, you may use either our FNB, NEDBANK or ABSA accounts to channel your donations, details of which appear on our website, www.alimdaad.com. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your usual kind and generous support. Since inception, this organisation has evolved only with the duas of the many pious individuals out there, our trustees, our donors, our team, well-wishers and ultimately the many impoverished recipients globally. We urge you to continue making dua that ALLAH TA’ALA accept from us our feeble efforts, forgives us for our short comings, allow us to always serve humanity and always give us the ability to truly please Him.
