Muslim schoolgirls raise £8000 for Gaza and Syria

Muslim schoolgirls raise £8000 for Gaza and Syria

Categories: Latest News

Wednesday May 22 2013

The Asian Image newspaper reports on the fundraising efforts of schoolgirls at Preston Muslim Girls High School and Abrar Academy who have jointly raised £8000 for charity.

The paper reports that the money will be distributed to two causes, “£3500 will be sent to Gaza through Interpal and £4500 will be sent to Syria through Islamic relief.”

A Preston Muslim Girls’ School spokesperson said, “Our Beloved Prophet PBUH never turned the beggar away empty handed and we too should consider charity to be a blessing that increases our capital rather than one that decreases it as mentioned in the Holy Quran.”
