As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

I have some WONDERFUL news! AlhumduliLlah. The girls orphange in Africa have received their dolls done through the Muslimah Doll Project. I don't know if I am more excited or them...hehe The blessings of Ramadaan, subhan'Allah.

Smiles.. and more smiles!

Thank you to everyone at the Sunrise Academy for the 37 gorgeous dolls they sent with so much love, and to the lovely sister who helped organize everything. May Allah reward you all abundantly for your kindness, and shower you with His kindness. Ameen. You've definitely brought more than just smiles to these children.

And thank you to the sisters at the orphanage who helped with everything at that end, and sent us pictures. Jazakum'Allahu khair.

One of the dolls had a letter from the donor with. As you can see, the recipient is thrilled! Tabarak'Allah. The orphanage is going to laminate the letter and keep it at the orphanage.

Girls being girls.

Please keep these children and the many other orphans out there in you prayers. We have updated the site, if you have time please check it out.. and spread the word!

As I read the post tears of happiness came out without I realised it. I am so happy for the girls.

Masha Allah, I am so proud of your efforts and jazaki Allahu khairan for making the orphans feel the blessings of Ramadan.

May Allah make us pro-active Muslimah, Ameen.

MashaAllah sis, I admire your drive! This is definitely something I would like to get involved in mashaAllah. There is so much for us to get into subhanAllah. It feels amazing doesn't it? I feel deprived looking at these photos, that I wasn't able to do anything. InshaAllah I'll keep that site and check it out and see if there's anything I can do. MashaAllah a beautiful project, those little ones are adorable. May Allah accept our intentions and efforts, ameen.
