Believe in Allah and His messenger, and spend (in charity) out of the (substance) whereof He has made you heirs. For, those of you who believe and spend (in charity), for them is a great Reward. (57:7) 
Dar Al-Hijrah Social Services staff would first like to thank all of our donors who continue to give so generously in the way of Allah. We also wanted to remind you that only a very brief summary of the client’s case will be described in our Appeals to the Community. This is to protect the identity and sanctity of our clients who come to us for assistance. Thank you for your understanding.
Our initial caseload actually encompassed many more individuals, most of whom we were able to direct to external sources for financial assistance. The cases you see below are only the select few who had already exhausted their funds and county’s assistance as sources of help, and they were left with no choice but to seek our aid. We hope that you will find it in your hearts to give from what you have been blessed with, and bear in mind that Allah will reward you with a greater good, inshaAllah.
Jazakum Allah Khair.
