Homes for Widows

Homes for Widows

Life can be unpredictable. For many women around the world, life is made even harder as a widow. They have no support, yet, the world around them does not stop. They have bills to pay, mouths to feed, a household to run. All this falls on their shoulders.

This is why we launched Homes for Widows, to help women get back on their feet.

Homes for Widows is an initiative to support women and their children during times of difficulty. Our goal is to provide widows and their children a safe environment to live peacefully and raise their children. We will provide them with housing at no cost to ensure vulnerable women and children are not taken advantage of or ever without a home. Empower widows to uplift their families.

"One who cares for widows and the poor is like those who fight in the way of Allah or those who spend their days fasting and their nights praying." [Bukhari]
