بسم هللا الرحمن الرحيم
نحمده ونصلي م على رسوله الكريم
In a few days, in the midst of the continuing COVID pandemic, we will be welcoming Ramadan 1442. Between last Ramadan (1441) and now, 38 JHESS members departed from this world. May Allah grant all Marhomeen Jannatul Firdaus, Ameen, and grant their families Sabrun Jameelan.
I was humbled at the generosity of spirit demonstrated when our Executive and bereaved family members completed multiple Quran Khatams in memory of their loved ones a few weeks ago. May Allah (SWT) accept these efforts and our duahs.
Humankind was graced with the revelation of the Quran in the month of Ramadan. Let us make every effort to continue connecting and immersing ourselves in the lessons the Quran holds for us, so that these words of Allah (SWT) permeate our lives always.
Let us also remain extremely vigilant as a possible third wave has been forecast. We beseech Allah (SWT) to protect us so that we are granted the opportunity to maximise the blessings we can reap in the auspicious month of Ramadan, In Shaa Allah.
While our masajid are open this year (albeit with limitations), the vulnerable should take all the necessary precautions to protect themselves. A glimmer of hope flickers on the horizon with the much-anticipated roll out of vaccines. We pray that Allah makes this possible sooner rather than later.
This year we will employ the same successful logistical approach in respect of Fitra, Food and Orphan parcel distribution as we did last year. I once again call on you to support these initiatives. It is only through your contributions that we are able to alleviate the difficulties experienced by the thousands that are now jobless and suffering from the fallout of COVID 19.
I take this opportunity to wish you an enriching Ramadan, In Shaa Allah.
Ramadan Kareem and remember us in your duahs.
Stay Safe & Stay Healthy.
