One MSA Takes it To Another Level in Support of Imam Siraj and Issues a Challenge to Other MSAs!

Asalamu alaykum,

A brother sent me this amazing email today!

“assalamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh ya Shaykhana!

in sha’ Allah you’re doing well. So one of the brothers convinced me to email you this request so we want to try encouraging the MSAs to donate and collect for Imam Siraj in sha’ Allah. alhamdu lil Lah, our jumu`ah alone got us $1858.55 putting us at a total of $5073 alhamdu lil Lah. Can we put out a challenge to see if any MSA can top that? If so, just don’t include it’s from us, leave the challenger anonymous. jazak Allahu khayran”

I was told today that they brothers and sisters at this MSA on the West Coast have raised more than $8,000! Mashallah, this is amazing news. When the youth decide to do something and motivated they can do so much. I’m very proud of all of the MSA’s and the efforts of out folks to help the Imam!
