Umrah for the Unrecognized
In our Heroes for Umrah/Hajj program, we take the unsung heroes and unrecognized, long-standing volunteers of our local communities who lack financial means to the blessed cities of Mecca and Medina accompanied by notable scholars who teach them before and during their travels. Upon return, these heroes present educational reflections for the wider community.
“Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allah and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve” – Surah al-Baqara, 2:262
