السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah swt be with you.

I will start of by introducing my Father in law Wasim Ahmed also well known as Wasim Lyca who was working with Lyca Mobile for a long time.

My Father in law lived most of his life in Luton and was well known within the community as a honest and humble business man. He suffered from High blood pressure and Diabetes but still lived his day to day life providing for his wife & children. He always went out of his way to help and support others, he had that character where he would build a relationship with almost anybody, extremely humble and such a bubbly personality. He never cheated anybody and lived his life in such a humble manner who I truly respected and so did many others.

He had a major stroke in his home in Luton, which caused half his body to shut down as he was rushed to the hospital via paramedics. Later transferred to Charing cross hospital in Hammersmith, London. Upon arrival he had been put on to a ventilator and we were told his condition is only deteriorating. We were praying to Allah swt for a miracle but sadly he passed away a few days later and returned to his Creator. His death has been a huge shock to all his family, friends & neighbours.

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ

Every soul will taste death

— Quran 3:185

I urge you all to pray for him that Allah swt may accept his good deeds, erase his bad and pardon him so he can enter into Jannat-Al-Firdous.

I have started this Go fund me page for my Father in law to aim to reach the targeted amount which will cater for a solar powered well which will provide clean water for drinking and a Wudhu area in Tharparkar desert in Sindh which is one of the poorest areas of Pakistan. 87% of the people live below the poverty line. 

This solar powered well can provide clean water for the whole community.

The Messenger of Allah (saw) was asked, “which charity is best?” He replied [Providing] water””.

[Abu Dawud]

Total cost for the solar water well: £1800.

The Original targets of £1800 had exceeded past that amount within a few days so we’ve started raising for the second well.

Total target: £3600.00


The Prophet (saw) said:

“Giving in charity doesn’t decrease your wealth in the slightest, and the person who pardons is not increase except in honor and there is no person who is humble for the sake of Allah, except that Allah will raise his rank.” (Muslim)

{Believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and spend of that whereof He has made you trustees. And such of you as believe and spend (in Allah’s way), theirs will be a great reward.} (57:7)

Crisis Aid had visited Tharparkar in 2019 and what they saw was a situation we could not even imagine, they were informed that it had not rained for TWO years.

Females, many of  them young and of school age, walk for miles on the hot Sandy desert surface carrying water in big pots on top of their heads. This water is then used for drinking, cooking, washing, bathing and even livestock. There is no electricity or gas. This is a never ending cycle that will go unless we help to make it easier for them.

Any amount would help reach our target Insh’Allah so if you can donate please do and share this page to friends & family so we can all gain rewards from this kind act.

If the donation amount exceeds the target then we will continue and start the second water well Insh’Allah.
 
JazakAllah Khayre for reading and donating.

May Allah swt accept your efforts and make you amongst those who are forgiven and enter into paradise.

Ameen
