Winter Emergency Appeal
As the Islamic empire grew during the caliphate of Umar ibn al-Khattab (Radhi Allah Anhu), Muslims came across different cultures, customs and weathers. One thing Arab Muslims felt was the harshness of winter outside of Arabian Pennunsila especially in countries like Sham (Syria) and Asian countries like Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, China, Mongolia, and parts of Afghanistan and India. This is why during his caliphate Umar (Radhi Allah Anhu) used to write to all his commanders and governors. He (Radhi Allah Anhu) used to advise them with the following advice:
“Winter, which is an enemy, has come, so prepare for it with wool, leather, socks, and blankets. Use wool as your under-clothing and leather as outer-clothing, because the cold is an enemy that enters quickly but leaves slowly.”
Following the advice of Umar ibn al-Khattab (Radhi Allah Anhu), Dabbagh Welfare Trust has launched its Winter Emergency Appeal. Donate generously towards our winter appeal and help keep the poor and the needy warm this winter.
