Every day hundreds of children and adults read Quraan at our facility, resulting in over 4000 hours of recitation each week. For every letter Allah (swt) promises 10 good deeds It doesn’t stop there; it keeps compounding, as children become parents, students become teachers, and the cycle continues until the end of time. This is a rare opportunity from Allah (swt) to earn a part of this reward and showering of his mercy. Please donate to end our crisis.
“Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action” [Muslim]
Your Urgent Attention
Five hundred (plus) Muslim children are at risk of losing their livelihood to the streets in South Seattle and we need your help urgently. Due to the excessive increases in lease demands by the landlord of our current facility, we are unable to sustain the operation of our organization and to reluctant sign the new lease. If these children have to return to the neighborhood public schools, the effects would be devastating: high exposure to drugs, enrollment to gangs, physical safety, abuse, emotional anxiety, and the list goes on and on. This is an opportunity for you to earn the ultimate lasting rewards - a Sadaqah Jariah.
How We Got Started
Mercy Association is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that was founded by three Madinah educated Islamic students who are now recognized teachers within the community; Ustaadh Tohir Abdulmalik, Ustaadh Farid Sulayman, and Shaykh Abdulbary Yahya (world renowned AlMaghrib instructor) based on witnessing the difficult circumstances of the under privileged Muslim community in Seattle. Prompted by the high rate of juvenile incarceration of Muslim youth from these neighborhoods due the lack of Islamic institutions, resources and programs that could have otherwise guided them and provided a nurturing environment. Their actions have had a tremendous impact on correcting the situation, which they achieved through creating a love for knowledge both spiritually and academically.
We have reached the stage in our endeavor where we need to purchase a permanent facility with the help of the greater Ummah. If we are able to buy a property out right with your help, this will help us lower our overhead costs significantly and help us improve and expand our services, including: teacher training and leadership, technology integration, social learning, integrated studies, and meeting enrolment demand. This will also help us achieve our vision for building a center of higher education for Islamic studies in the North West.
The Estimated Need
We estimate we will need $3 to $5 million dollars to purchase a suitable facility with the opportunity to expand to meet the demands of this community. With the grace of Allah (swt) we have had many gracious Muslim families pledge their support to acquire the right property and with their help have already accomplished 20% of the goal. Please donate with a big heart and generosity to help ease the need of these Muslim children and make this effort successful. If the problems we are setting out to correct are not resolved, it will grow into an epidemic that will cast a dark cloud over the Ummah. Surely Allah (swt) is All-Seeing and All-Hearing and will reward you justly.
We ask Allah to make us all successful in this endeavor and we ask Him to reward all of those who are able to help us.
“If a human dies, then his good deeds stop except for three: a Sadaqa Jariah (continuous charity), a beneficial knowledge, or a righteous child who prays for him.” – Sahih Muslim
