13RT Dua Book 2023

This is a brief practical guide for people who have lost a loved one. Understandably, it can be one of the most difficult and challenging of times, however as Muslims we are blessed to have divine guidance in all our affairs which makes it easier to understand, cope and live with loss. For a believer, behind every loss there are countless blessings and favours from Allah that we ought to recognise and take comfort in.

“He who created death and life to test which of you is best in deed”
(Quran 67:2)

“Every blessing that takes you away from Allah is a calamity, and every calamity that draws you nearer to Allah is a blessing.”
(Ibn al-Qayyim)

Their descendants today have chosen the name of the charity after this expression as a way of honouring their sacrifice.

13 RT Rescue Orphan Homes Brochure

An orphan in Islam is defined as a child who has lost a parent or both parents. Losing a parent can mean that access to education, protection, shelter and food can become a dream for many.

In Bangladesh, 5.8% of the children below 18 years have lost either one or both parents. Almost 4 million children are orphans, with half of them living in extreme poverty. The responsibility of care for the orphan falls on all of us. Our sponsorship programmes operate within the Greater Sylhet region. Who could be more deserving of our help than the orphan child?
