My Newest Baby

In the name of Allah, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Remember my previous post (right here) about a sister in an abusive relationship we busted out (Charlie's Angels style)? or the one (right here) about another friend being told she was being abused because of Islam?  yeah, well a group of us got together and decided that we were through with complaining about the lack of resources for battered women in our communities.  As we did our research we found out that single parents  as well as families going through economic hardships needed assistance.   We decided to launch Pink Anonymous so that we can spotlight the organizations helping our community.  So every month we will focus a deserving non-profit and their project and help them achieve their goal whether it be monetary, du'as or with items like canned goods or coats for the winter.

ps. Reminder of why it is important

The women are here for many reasons. It’s a sanctuary and an escape. It’s also a place where they can live and pray without having their faith questioned.
My biggest problem was that if you send a Muslim woman to be counseled in a shelter that’s run by Christians, then what the people say is the reason why you’re being beat is because of that religion. We do not want Islam to be the focal point of domestic violence,” Hanif said.
Indeed, domestic violence knows no religion, but not all shelters are sensitive to Muslims, Hanif said.

 Help us, help our sisters in faith.  Please pass it on to as many people as possible. JazakAllah khayran.
