Muslim Women's Help Network

Dec 2, 2005

Muslim Women’s Help Network
a sub-division of United Muslim Movement Against Homelessness(U.M.M.A.H.)/ICNA Relief USA

Mission Statement

The mission of the Muslim Women’s Help Network is to promote family life in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings be upon him, emphasizing the protection and maintenance of women and children as the foundation for a productive community life.

Efforts to establish temporary housing and services will encompass a broad approach that supports and enhances the educational and health related interests of individuals and families.

Assessing the Need
Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings be upon him has shown us the example of one in need by pointing us in the direction of examining his or her condition. In our everyday condition, we become aware of others who lack food, housing and emotional comfort for a variety of reasons. When there are no family members to turn to for help, there is a need for the community to respond.

United Muslim Movement Against Homelessness (U.M.M.A.H.)/ICNA Relief,
has served the needs of the homeless and hungry for many years. It now includes and supports a major effort in the establishment of the Muslim Women’s Help Network. The collaboration, through improved awareness and outreach within the Muslim community, seeks to respond to the needs of sisters and children whose homeless (displaced) experience, or the threat thereof, deserves critical attention, support and relief.

Help For The Homeless & The Needy
     
The Muslim Women’s Help Network seeks to coordinate resources that will enable families to overcome hardship when faced with homelessness, financial crisis, health related issues and feelings of isolation. Insha’Allah, the network plans to develop efforts and actions that will build bridges of understanding and increased delivery of services that support wholesome family and community life.

God
revealed Himself as a Personal God who wants to talk to us, guide us
individually and have personal relationship with each of us whom He made
His children. That is what God created us for! Allah is only a myth, a
word on paper, and there is no reality to him and islam is only set of
rules ad rituals. Ask God to manifest and reveal Himself in your life
and He will!
islam is only a set of rules from an immoral man who wanted to rule people. all you need to do is think who you follow. islam is merely a set of ideas and propositions. but christianity is reality of God and is personal relationship with God
based on His love, power and grace. All of it is given to us in Jesus
Christ through His cross where He died in our place and He rose from the
dead that we would have access to the throne of God who became our
Father and made us His children on whom He bestowed all His abundant
blessings and forgave us our sins. God is LOVE!
“Therefore
they took Jesus away.Carrying His own cross, He went out to what is
called Skull Place, which in Hebrew is called Golgotha. There they
crucified Him and two others with Him, one on either side, with Jesus in
the middle. Pilate also had a sign lettered and put on the cross. The
inscription was: JESUS THE NAZARENE THE KING OF THE JEWS”. – John
19:17-19

God
created us for personal relationship with Him and His greatest desire
is that we would be like Him, that we would live the same powerful, pure
and miraculous life that is in Him. And that is only possible by God
living in and through us by His Holy Spirit whom He gives to our hearts
when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
There
is no way we can earn God’s free grace — All of life is a gift —
including eternal life! Grace is a gift. That means you don’t have to
work your tail off to be loved by God. Jesus
Christ died on the Cross so we could have a living, vital relationship
with God the Father, not just a bunch of rules and regulations we’re
forced to follow. Jesus is the Way to the Father. Jesus is the only
Savior of the world who redeemed us so we can know God personally and
live in His presence and experience His love.
The
greatest difference between christianity and islam is that christianity
is reality of God and personal relationship with Him, God is holy, He
is love and He is our Father. Christianity is based on life, power and
words of sinless pure Jesus. Islam is just a set of rules, regulations,
ceremonies. It’s a lifestyle based on a mere man who never made one
miracle which would prove he was sent by God and whose god never proved
he exists

As’salaamu Alaikum..I am a young Muslim mother. I’m 18 years old. My family isn’t Muslim, so they threw out my hijabs and abayas and put me out. I want to raise my daughter up as a muslimah. Is there any way someone can help me with clothing and housing?

Alsalam alakium sisters. I am a new Muslimah and have no clothes to wear. I live in a state that do not have any Muslim clothing stores and I am on a fixed income. So the clothes they sell online, are too expensive for me and there are only six masjids here and every time I go to the charity area the other women get to the clothes first. Please if you have any you don’t wear of any color I would appreciate it very much. Insha Allah.
