"Send Sheikh AbdurRaheem To Hajj 1439/2018"

THE STARBUCKS CHALLENGE!!!


This is Abu Muhammad Abdullahi al-Looweesi'aani with Insight Audio.  

Allah, The Eternal says:  

وَإِذا سَمِعوا ما أُنزِلَ إِلَى الرَّسولِ تَرىٰ أَعيُنَهُم تَفيضُ مِنَ الدَّمعِ مِمّا عَرَفوا مِنَ الحَقِّ ۖ يَقولونَ رَبَّنا آمَنّا فَاكتُبنا مَعَ الشّاهِدينَ

"And when they (who call themselves Christians) listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognised. They say: "Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses." Qur'aan 5:83

And such is the case as people from all over the Americas are entering the religion of al-Islaam.  Allah sends guidance and exposes a path that is pure for a creation who is not.

I met our brother, our Sheikh AbdurRaheem (may Allah preserve us and him) in Louisville, Ky back in the mid 90's.  He is an American Muslim coming into Islam in 1984.  He is now 82 years old still worshiping Allah.  He is well known to the men and women there.  

He is known to be a friend to all especially the Muslims.  He is known by the leave of Allah for aiding the Muslims with his time, assistance and advice.  He is known by the leave of Allah for being patient and being kind.  He is not known for being harsh, misleading men and running people away from the religion of Allah and Allah knows best.

Sadly our Sheikh has never seen The House of Allah.  
We're asking the Muslims in the name of Allah to send him to Hajj 1439/2018.  We are trying to raise $8,500.00 for him seeking the help of Allah. 

THIS IS THE STARBUCKS CHALLENGE

Some of us have drunk enough Starbucks coffee within the past 15 years to have gone to the house of Allah  multiple times!

A Caramel Frappuccino cost close to $5.00.  Would you give away 5 months of Frapps, $200 for the face of Allah and send our brother in al-Islaam to Hajj?  

If 42 Muslims gave up just 5 months of Starbucks our brother may see The House Of Allah.  

Points:

1) Our brother is 82.  We have gotten a medical clearance for him to make Hajj.  

2) With this money we will get his passport

3) With this money we will find a suitable Hajj package for him that will accommodate him, his age and any medical condition he may have

4) Our brother Abdul Qaadir from Columbus will take care of monies we are collecting. 

5) And all of the above if Allah wills it, He is The Knower and know best everything we are saying.  

6) I'm the first to donate $200.00 for Allah, join me.  And let's do this again next year and the year after that, and.....

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله 

We praise and worship no one but Allah, The God of all the prophets. It is with great sadness that we communicate that our beloved Sheikh AbdurRaheem is too ill to make Hajj. He is down to one lung and just doesn't have the strength he had two years ago.

We are very grateful to all of you who have donated for this beautiful cause. We have been monitoring his health since the beginning of the year. We were given the green light that his health was good enough to make Hajj. With that green light we began this campaign. But Allah is God. Our sheikh became seriously ill within these past months so we waited and kept in touch with him and had brothers there locally helping to keep us in the loop.

We just got off the phone with him and it is clear to him and us this is not going to happen. Subhanallah.

We would like to thank brothers Jamal, Yahya AbdulHaqq and Fawaz and others for all their help on the ground. May Allah place every good on your scale of good deeds.

Again to those who donated we ask Allah to forgive, cover and greet you. We are in the process to refunding the monies to all who donated.

Lastly I want to thank AbdulQaadir for keeping his trust, being a patient advisor, and sacrificing his time for the Muslims. May Allah grant him and his family nearness to Him, The Alone.

May Allah forgive and accept us and you,

Abu Muhammad Abdullah al-Looweesi'aani
