The masjid I go to every Jumuah (Friday Prayer), IHC - Islamic Heritage Center in Fairfax, Virginia appeals to the congregants to donate to help support countless cases of extremely poor, needy, orphans, widows, single mothers, etc, every week they barely get any support or help.
So I pledged to donate $1,000 and decided to start a online fundraiser for the various cases that IHC is trying to help, please help me to raise at least $5,000 for this noble cause so you can get rewarded for your donation, in sha Allah.
