EID MUBARAK FROM THE PRESIDENT
Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barkatuhu
Alhamdulillah, we are blessed with another opportunity to celebrate Eid. As we celebrate this auspicious occasion with the sacrifice of an animal and sharing it with others, let us all take a moment to ponder about the importance of sacrificing for the pleasure of Allah. Are we willing to give the thing we most love for the sake of Allah(SWT)?
For those who performed Hajj, may Allah accept it.
Eid Mubarak! Eid Kareem!!!

PLEASE Click on the ATTACHED FORM to see how you may help.This is your opportunity to participate in this international humanitarian relief project. Fiysabiylillah is in the process of sponsoring 10 families (widows/orphans) to reside locally in Durham Region and urgently need your support!
Fiysabiylillah C.A.O. initiated the Syrian Widows/Orphans Program in 2014 and since then has helped over 150 families. Now that the Canadian government has opened its doors to 25,000 of these Syrian refugees, we want to give the widows and orphans in our program an opportunity to come to live in Canada. We have contacted all the families and 10 families have indicated to us, that they would like to come to live in Canada.
Fiysabiylillah CAO is now in the process of sponsoring these families. As soon as all the sponsorship forms are completed, we can then submit them but we need to show that we have approximately CDN$300,000 ($30 000 x 10 families) in the organization’s bank account. At the moment, meeting the financial requirements is our immediate challenge. Please see attachment and respond before it is too late.
We need $40,000 more for five additional centers. Please donate generously.
