99 Orphans Team Update from Zahi Shaikh

Assalamu’alaikum, my name is Zahi Shaikh! I have been in the 99 Orphans team since 2017. The team holds a variety of activities from a Spring Fest to Family Game Night. We need to raise money for 99 Orphans. To do this, when you come to these gathering’s and donate to the 99 Orphans Team we become a step closer to housing 99 orphans. The Prophet (SAW) said, “And come not near to the orphan’s property, except to improve it,’ and ‘Verily, those who unjustly eat up the property of orphans”. This shows how much the Prophet (SAW) cared for orphans. In our last meeting, we had a gathering. Greek Cuisine sponsored this event. The way money was raised is that whenever someone bought food, part of the proceeds went towards helping the orphans. People could also voluntarily donate money.
