Alhamdulillah we’ve been busy for the past few months:
Loans 12, 13, and 14 were issued: Loan #12 was for $8,000 and went to an Islamic School Teacher in Ontario pursuing a Master’s of Science in Education (Elementary Program); Loan #13 was for $1,700 and went to an English Teacher from Alberta who is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Educational Policy Studies with a focus on exploring a new paradigm for Islamic Education in the West; Loan #14 was for $4,000 and went to an Arabic Elementary Teacher from South Korea who is pursuing Master’s Program in Arabic-Korean Translation. Our total loans issued to-date is now over $66,000.
Late in 2011 we held an information session at Markaz ul-Islam in Fort McMurray, Alberta: the audience was impressed and with only 3 dozen people and in about 5 minutes, over $25,000 in donations were pledged. Alhamdulillah!
We continue to seek out generous donations to help us expand our services as we still turn away dozens of applicants annually – currently only one person is donating on our monthly donation program. Brothers and sisters, help us help others; may Allah help us all and forgive our sins. Ameen.
Keep us in your sincere prayers.
