Your Brothers in Need Await Your Help

August , 2006

Dear Libyans in the Diaspora,

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

“The believers, men and women, are Auliyâ' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another” (9:71)
The Prophet PBUH says: “Allah will alleviate a hardship (a burden) on the Day of Judgment for each hardship (burden) a believer alleviates for his fellow believer in this life.”

I appeal to you, pious, generous people of Libya in the Diaspora, to come to the help of these fellow Libyans:
· The first brother was involved in a car accident a while back. He is partially paralyzed. We pray to Allah to grant him speedy and full recovery so that he can get back to enjoying and supporting his family. After Allah, SWT, they have no one to turn to but you, their countrymen. We need funds to provide this brother with desperately needed physical therapy.
· The second bother has a severe case of cataract in both eyes and is rapidly losing his sight. You had helped him last year, but the problem has reoccurred.
Once again, we at HOPE International appeal to your piety, generosity, and your sense of human dignity to do what Allah SWT enables you to do; to help these brothers who have turned to Allah, and then to all of us, their only family in this land away from home. We pray to the Almighty Allah that you would be one of those who hasten to do righteous work and be granted Allah’s forgiveness “And hasten forth in the way (which leads to) forgiveness from your Lord, and for Paradise as wide as the heavens and the earth, prepared for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious).
Those who spend (in Allâh's Cause) in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good-doers).” (2:133-134)

May Allah bless you and your families and protect you from ever being in a similar situation.

Wassalamu Alaikum,
