The Hijrah to New Madinah in Oregon
What are we but an extension of the very best of creation and the possibility to be the worst of ourselves. I pray each and every one of us reach to our highest self and be forgiven for the missteps in our journey.
Salaam! And may the ultimate peace forever be with you in guidance yo your highest self. My name is Maryam. A name given to me a decade before I was even born. One of its many aquired meanings is maid servant of God. What a powerfully gentle name. My aspirations summed up in how I am addressed. To be a maid servant of God is to serve in love of God and serve what God loves. We began this journey loving God, loving who god loves, and following the guidance of God. My journey is in peril. I am seeking inner Hijrah, to stay firmly seeking Allah's (God's) mercy. Yet I'm also struggling to make Hijrah in just 7 days. I seek the Hijrah to New Madinah Village in Cottage Grove Oregon. A place that has become the lamp on my journey. The beacon. The love of my heart.
New Madinah Village is a trust cooperative land purchase. It's fellowship seeks to gather the weary souls amongst us. Those who yearn for the babbling springs out side the door. The cup of sugar from their neighbor. The children who's distant laugh awakens even the trees. The lush gardens and eatable forest are works of art and sights of hard working craftsmanship. This is the intended build. You study with a hammer in hand. You relax to movements of thia chi or yoga. Maybe even the silent meditation. You speak to tall trees that tower among you. This place is no utopia. It is but a land that stewards have been blessed to accept an invitation to live and love as Allah has taught us.
I have but 7 days.....The wheels turn August 11th on this journey cross country with a shoe string budget and duaa to the most rich Sllah. Asking him with smiles in tow to keep us safe. I call upon you as I have done before. My brethren. The kind hearted. Thos who have been blessed. Look into your hearts. Be the answer to a long heart felt duaa. Pray for us. And donate generously. Shall we empower a life altering Hijrah? YES! Give from what Allah has blessed you with. By Allah's mercy and permission facilitate this Hijrah. Ever step is a blessing. Every contribution makes a difference. I am who I am. Maryam. Flawed but feirce to become a true maid servant of Allah. The creator of all creation. The one.
I have started a new campaign. One that is lofty to say the least. I believe it can save us from having to revisit a disparaging state again, and again. We want to work, and we have. We don't mind Hijra, and we have made it. We aren't looking to be carried, we want to carry others. We've turned to Allah and will continue to ask of his mercy and his blessings that have no rival. He gives to whom ever he wills, in the amount he wills, through whatever means he wills. We're asking that you be a delivery.
This new campaign is geared toward having a more consistent means of upward financial capabilities. To finally proceed with our truest calling. Basically attaining our own, maintaining our own, and therefore becoming truly independent. Why must we wait till death, illness, burials, or spiraling catastrophe, until we help others. I know, another person with a hand out? Another "ugh I wish I could help" moment. Maybe, it's "Is she really who she says she is"? I really can't say I blame you. All I can do is thank you, regardless if you reading this turns in to you donating for this or not. All I can do is try, keep trying, and never ever give up. I will do what I intend to do with this funding so help me God, or I will get old, and die trying by God's permission, I will never stop. And I pray, neither will you.
These are the online forums I have used to establish this intention. One is new, and two are years old, but I refuse to give them up. Salat Signs through Max'd Out Dawa is a product we developed to sell. We're not just asking without trying on our own. I ask you to take a look, and see the consistency, see what I've tried, and how you can help me succeed right now.
Then go to our new campaign and donate. Donate like you've never thrown care to the wind before. Donate like the tomorrow that this funding can bring is right there looking back at you now. Donate as if it is your dream that can be made to come true. My dearest love, hugs, and prayers be with you and those who are in your care. I'm humbled by you even getting to the end of this update.
