Our Duty of Charity During Ramadan - Zam Zam Water and The 300 Beautiful Children of Imam Bukhari Orphanage By Mashall Rezayee
Ms. Mashall Rezayee will be talking about Zam Zam Water's Imam Bukhari Orphanage project. They have 300 orphan students that wish to be able to go to school, to eat, and to be clothed. The goal is to sponsor all 300 orphaned children for an entire year during this glorious month of Ramadan!
Zam Zam Water is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization focused on bringing water to those in need, one WELL at a time. The story of Zam Zam water dates back to the Prophet Abraham. Islamic tradition holds that while venturing out in the middle of the desert valley, Abraham was walking with his wife, Hajar, and their infant son, Ismael. Consequently, when Hajar and Ismael were left alone, she desperately searched for water in a dry, barren land, all the while she was running back and forth hopelessly praying for God's mercy. God answered her prayers and quenched her thirst by causing a spring to rise at the feet of Ismael. This Zam Zam well has been running continuously ever since.
