Ramadan Fundraising - 2014
Tuesday, 08 July 2014 22:32
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmata Allah Wa Barakatu,
We pray this message reaches you in the best of states during this blessed month of Ramadan. Alhamdulillah, we are truly blessed to have reached another month in which our good deeds are multiplied manifold. We should take any and every opportunity that we can to reap the rewards in this month. Indeed our wealth does not diminish with giving, rather multiplies when spent in the way of Allah (swt).
Alhamdulillah, Austin Peace Academy had a successful year filled with many achievements. The cost of running this highly successful school is not met by the tuition fees collected. In order to maintain the quality of education and the quality of teachers, we need your help and your financial support. There is an urgent need to raise scholarship funds to help the refugees and needy students within our own community. It is from generous donors such as yourself that we can continue to provide this much needed service to those who need our help the most.
Please join Austin Peace Academy for a special Iftar at the APA/ICGA campus on Saturday July 19th, catered by Dimassi's and help us raise funds for APA.
Location: Saturday July 19th 8:35 PM, Masjid Khadijah 5110 Manor Rd, Austin TX
Maghrib prayers followed by Iftar dinner: 8:35 PM
Isha prayers and fundraising: 10:00 PM
If you can't make it, donating is as simple as a click of a button. It can be done via PayPal through the www.apacademy.org
website or can be mailed in to 5110 Manor Rd., Austin, TX 78723. Please do not disregard this email. Think about the benefit you can bring the students. Think about the reward you will have with Allah (swt).
The Prophet (saws) said: “The best charity is that given in Ramadan.” [At-Tirmithi]. May the blessings of Allah(swt) be with you.
We look forward to you joining us in this blessed and helping us improve the future of young Muslims at Austin Peace Academy.
Jazaakum Allahu Kheir,
APA School Board & Principal
