Our History

We are a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization in
Connecticut, USA.  Tax ID/EIN: 85-3812014

We came together in April 2020 (Ramadan 1441 AH) at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown to raise money for families in need in our local Greater Danbury area. We found out that many families needed help with buying food and paying rent and bills.

By the grace of God, we raised thousands of dollars for this purpose, and with the help of partners, we gave out dozens of payments in the first months to families in need in Greater Danbury.

After Ramadan, we realized that families still needed a lot of help so we continued to give out micro-grants each month. We also decided to form a 501(c)(3) organization in order to help families in need on an on-going basis.

Our Values

The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to people.
The most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove one of his troubles,
or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger. That I walk with a brother regarding a need is more
beloved to me than that I seclude myself in this mosque in Medina for a month….
