Dawah West Africa

There is much ignorance of Islam yet a thirst for the truth in West Africa. We have gathered some very good articles and reprinted them especially for this appeal. Caravan of Mercy UK has created a Dawah pack, consisting of booklets, folded leaflets and an English translation of the Quran. These packs will be distributed by the Islamic Information Centre (Ghana) an arm of Caravan of Mercy Ghana.
Each pack will cost approximately £5 and we are appealing to the public to donate Lillah to this cause.

It is reported that the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him Said:
“By Allah, if Allah were to guide one man through you it would be better for you than the best type of camels.”
(Bukhari, Muslim)

Ghana Appeal

Quran Project for Ghana:

We have printed 20,000 Qurans for Ghana. ‘Interpretation of the meanings of the Noble Quran’ contain both Arabic as well as English text. The translation is by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan. It features explainations from Sahih Al Bukhari. The front and back covers are being printed now in India and almost ready for dispatch.

Each book cost £3.00 (cost covers transport, printing and distribution). Inshallah this consignment will be delivered to Tema, Accra (location of our Ghana office) in February 2013 and from there the Qurans will be delivered to different locations throughout Ghana.

The cost of this project have been met but we still need funds for future Quran distribution.

As part of this consignment, we plan to include Islamic Dawah literature as well as French tranlated Qurans for neighbouring countries. After visiting Ghana recently, Maulana Ebrahim saw first hand how much the locals are crying out for knowledge. Please donate English books and literature for dawah. Please donate lillah by phoning CoM on 0116 276 3344 or use this website to make a donation using your bank/ credit card.

We need donations now for the added literature.

PLEASE DONATE NOW.
