Fundraising update / Watch br. Daoud’s story / Sign up for last 10 days auto deductions

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullah,

Here we are, we’ve finished the first half of Ramadan and are quickly approaching the last 10 days. And before we know it, Ramadan will have passed behind us. May Allah SWT make us all among its winners.

Alhamdulillah, we are making good progress with our Ramadan fundraising. More than $40K has been donated so far. We really hope that we raise enough funds in Ramadan so that we don’t have to ask our community again for donations for the rest of the year, insha’a Allah. Please continue making dua’a for SNMC and for the whole community and ummah.

I am excited to share with you the first of a series of videos we plan to share in the coming days on ‘Stories from the SNMC Community’. These are real stories from our community that we hope will be an inspiration to others. 

If you have a story that you’d like to be featured in our series, please email us at info@snmc.ca. In particular, we are looking for a:

– Reversion story and how perhaps SNMC may have played a role in it

– Becoming a better Muslim story and how perhaps SNMC may have played a role in it

– Marriage story that may have been facilitated through SNMC’s marriage services

– Filling in the void of a senior member of our community through SNMC’s senior programming

– Parent of a child who memorized all or part of the Quran at SNMC

Lastly, in support of SNMC’s Ramadan campaign, I would like to invite you to sign up for auto deductions in the last 10 days of Ramadan. This is an initiative to help you, insha’a Allah, realize the reward of Laylat-ul-Qadr by automating your donation every night in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Deductions can be made from either a credit card or directly from a bank account and would insha’a Allah occur nightly starting on Wednesday May 13th until Friday May 22nd.

Sign up from now for daily auto deductions in the last 10 nights of Ramadan at www.snmc.ca/last10nights.

As usual, donations can be made online at www.snmc.ca, via e-transfer to info@snmc.ca, and in person (cash and cheques) from Mondays to Thursdays between 11am and 2pm and Fridays to Sundays between 2pm to 6pm (during Ramadan only) at SNMC (3020 Woodroffe Ave.)

Jazakallah khair
