May Allah (swt) accept our prayers in this blessed month and allow us to seize all opportunities to earn His pleasure. During this blessed month, I bring to you again this year, like I have been doing for the past several years, a proposition to multiply our rewards many-fold. I am counting on your help to continue our program to support worthy causes in Kashmir.

Alhamdulillah, at CHINAR,we have focused our efforts on Child Support, Quality Education, Youth Development, and Disaster Relief and over the years we have accomplished a lot. InshaAllah, your donation in Ramadan will help continue our work in 2047 and beyond. Our area of work and the support provided to individuals and families can fulfill the following Islamic obligations.

  • ZAKAT - The word Zakat means both 'purification' and 'growth'. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need. This is 2.5% of our savings.
  • ZAKATUL-FITR - Islamically, Zakatul Fitr is the name given to charity which is distributed at the end of the fast of Ramadan. This year Zakatul-Fitr is $10 per every individual in your Family.
  • FIDYA - The term Fidya is used to describe the process of redemption for missing fasts. $10 x number of missed fasts.
  • KAFFARAH - Kaffarah is the compensation for breaking the fast before Iftar time. To feed 60 individuals or to feed an individual for 60 days. $600 You and I grew up in communities that we ended up leaving behind. Looking around us here in North America Allah (swt) has blessed us with the most comfortable life one can get on this planet. Here's an opportunity to give back to the communities we come from.

All Ramadan donations go to children, families and youth living in poverty who are genuine recipents of Zakat.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Kind Regards,

Khalid Ashai

Conflict has had a significant impact on the education of children in Kashmir since 1990. Schools and colleges have remained shut for periodic and prolonged spells of unrest. The various stakeholders (Government, Civil Society & Resistance Groups) need to figure out a way to balance political sentiments & education needs. CHINAR explores options.
