What are you doing for Gaza? [Part 2]

Hi everyone,

Yesterday was yet again another day of Fundraising at Al-Hikmah Girls School,

We had:
Face Painting
Hand Printing
Mendhi (Henna) Hand art

Unfortunately I had to teach! The girls had lot’s of exams to do, so I guess I had to be there, but they did get a chance to join in afterwards during their break time, which was a fab treat for my hard-working students and also a great stress reliever =P

Here are some pictures, sorry I couldn’t take pictures of the flags printed on their face, but here’s some of the hand art and hand prints.

At the end of the day we raised £907.30 which is an unbelievable achievement!!!

May Allaah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) reward all those that took part in the Fundraiser, either through donating/helping/buying/or bringing in things to sell, May Allaah make this money beneficial for those in Gaza and May Allaah bless us and help us to help the Ummah further, Aameen.

A blessing in Disguise

JazakAllaah to sister Ubaydah who sent us this one,

Al-Harith ibn Suwayd related that ‘Abdullah [ibn Mas’ud] said, “I visited the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, when he was ill and he was suffering from a very high fever. I observed, ‘You have a very high fever,’ I added, ‘Is that because you will have two rewards?’ He said, ‘Yes, there is no Muslim who is afflicted by harm but that Allah will make his errors fall away from him as the leaves of a tree fall down.'” [al-Bukhari (The Book of Patients)]

Fever

SubhanAllaah even the smallest pain is a blessing in disguise.

Making Money, BUT not for you

Working hard,
And making money,
That’s what I wanna do,

No looking out,
Waiting on someone,
No relying on somebody,

I wanna make my own cash,
And spend it on my own,

Might save a little,
For the nice friends I’ve known,

Probs won’t give any,
To the ones who make it hard,

Why should I bother,
Go on tell me why?
Why should I?

Don’t look to me for help
Or look to me for support

No I won’t be friendly
Nor will I be nice
To the bullies in my life

Though I tried hard to survive
In my grief-stricken life

Don’t expect me to give companionship
Even if it’s all that you ask

I’ll look you in the eye
And say sorry mate I’ll pass

Haha
