السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
It’s Wednesday 5th May 2021.
Let me take you to ‘Albania’ today.
After my first visit to Albania in 1998, I have visited this beautiful country many times, over the next 23 years. Albania is a small developing country in Eastern Europe, which enjoyed over 500 years of glorious Islamic rule, under the Uthmāni Khilāfah (Ottoman Empire).
There were more than 2000 Masjids in Albania, and it was a flourishing Islāmic country. Then came the darkest hours in the history of this country. Albanians who had studied abroad gained control of the country. Heavily influenced by Communism, within a period of around 40 years, they changed the landscape of this once thriving country, prohibiting all religious practices, among other things.
When Communism ended in the late 80s, there were only 50 Masjids left in Albania. Today, you will find over 700 Masjids, مَا شَآءَ الله. Our organisation, the Muslim Welfare Institute (MWI), has been working on the ground since 1993. We have set up 70 Islamic Classes, all over Albania, serving over a thousand children.
You can finance one teacher, for one year, for £1500, which is only £125 per month. If you split it into 52 weeks, it comes to only around £30. As we enter the last week of this Ramaḍān, a very humble request to you to donate as much Lillāh as possible; at least £30 to cover the cost of one class for one week, اِنْ شَاءَ الَّلهُ.
Let’s not miss out on the massive rewards of these last few nights please. Donation methods as follows:
