Amal Mabruuk focuses on health, education, welfare of Nigerians
A new Islamic organization, Amal Mabruuk has debuted with a major focus of uplifting the wellbeing of the less privileged in the country.
The Foundation, formed group of Muslim professionals, is designed to be a global humanitarian network of people that will help those facing health, education and social challenges.
Speaking at the launch, the Chairman of the foundation, Alhaji Abdul-Jaleel Olori-Aje, stated that Amal Mabruuk, would be catering for the less privileged in the society regardless of their religion, race or tribe by focusing on three major core areas, which are; health care, education, and general welfare.
According to him, the idea of a foundation is a simple one, which requires every willing Muslims to make a monthly donation of N1,000 (3USD) to support the less- privileged in the society.
He noted that the foundation is pivoted on Sadaqah (charity), which is enjoined by Allah on all Muslims and can be found in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Verse 110: “ And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity and whatever you send forth for your souls before you, you shall find it with Allah; For Allah sees well all that you do.”
He said, “Take for instance, if two million Muslims can contribute N1,000 each this would translate to N2 billion. You can then imagine the impact of the infrastructure or intervention provided by that kind of funds. You can be sure that there would be an improvement in the welfare of the poor. Such resources would be available to build medical centers, educational/vocational centers and uplift the general wellbeing of the needy among others. Once we are able to do that, it means we have fulfilled part of our religious obligations as Muslims”
The Executive Secretary of the foundation, Dr. Jubril Salaudeen, noted that the concept of Amal Mabruuk was borne out of the need for Muslims to come together and give as little as N1, 000 which translates to a lot of money given the huge population the Muslims in Nigeria.
He added that with such support, he is convinced that the aggregate resources could be used to change and positively affect lives of the less privileged.
”We believe that the solution to the problems in our society today lies with how we all work together to redistribute the resources that Allah has blessed us with to better the lots of the less privileged in our society, not minding their religious affiliation,” he said.
Salaudeen said interested individuals can donate by logging on to the foundation’s website (www.amalmabruuk.org). He also added that the foundation has appointed the services of a reputable audit firm, Ahmad Zakari & Co as auditors to ensure probity.
Alhaji Maroof Adisa said the foundation was born out of generic concern and yielding to the call of Allah and his messenger (SAW) to help those in need in respective of where they come from.
