The winding road to the massacres last week in Egypt made a couple of stops in Washington. The American public deserves to know about them.
A review of the U.S. government’s most recent overseas grants database and federal documents that I conducted as part of the investigative reporting program at UC Berkeley shows that a quiet State Department program to promote democracy in Egypt repeatedly has ignored a U.S. ban on funding political or subversive activities against fairly elected foreign governments.

Rasulullah (S) said, “The Best form of charity is giving someone water (to drink).” Please consider coming and giving your Zakat to sponsor water well for this Ramadan.
Women and Children in Kenya and Somalia travel on average 4 miles to get dirty and murky water which often kills and spreads many diseases.
Inshallah, as we go on 15 hours without water this Ramadan; let’s think about our Brothers and Sisters in Somalia, Kenya, and Pakistan. Many of them go days without water. Unfortunately these people lack the simplest of elements we take for granted.
Without water, not a single living thing can survive.
Inshallah On July 6, just days before Ramadan, Helping Hand for Relief and Development will be having a fundraising dinner for the people who are long deprived of clean drinking water in Somalia, Kenya and Pakistan.
Our goal is to have 25 wells sponsored in Somalia, Kenya, and Pakistan. This will not be possible without Allah (SWT)’s help and your support. The average cost for these wells is $4500. You may name the well after your family, a loved one, a deceased family member, or company/organization name and use the sponsorship as a form of Sadaqa Jaariyah.
Inshallah, this will be counted towards the blessings of this Ramadan.
The dinner will be at the MCA Banquet Hall 6:30 pm.
If you are unable to attend, please send us your generous contribution and encourage others to come and support us for this noble cause.
