Caribbean Daʿwah Drive [Ramaḍān 1430H]
Bismillāh, wal-hamdulilāh, was-ṣalātu was-salāmu 'ʿalá rasoolillāh, wa ba'd
The Prophet Muḥammad (may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace) once prophesized: "Verily, this affair shall reach as far as the day and night reach. Allāh shall not leave any house, whether made of clay/brick or animal hides, except that He has made this Dīn (Islām) to enter into it, honouring the honourable ones, disgracing the disgraced: an honour that Allāh bestows upon Islām; and a disgrace that He disgraces disbelief with." (Silsilatus-Ṣaḥīḥah, 3rd ḥadīth [narration], Vol. one; page 7, Imām al-Albānī)
Appeal for Daʿwah Materials for the the Carribbean
During this blessed month of Ramaḍān, we are appealing to the international community to support and important an noble cause. The Caribbean islands of Jamaica and St. Lucia are home to sometimes small and remote Muslim communities in need to daʿwah materials. Jamaica is home to a fastly growing Muslim community mostly comprised of local converts, outside of Trinidad, it has the largest Muslim population in the Caribbean and Islām has been widely accepted. St. Lucia is home to a couple hundred Muslims, daʿwah efforts are active in the bustling port town of Castries and daʿwah materials have proven useful, lately, four young St. Lucian women accepted Islām in the countryside of this beautiful small east carribean island, by Allāh's permision.
Allāh the Majestic mentions in the Qurʾān,
“And whatsoever you spend of anything (in the cause of Allāh), He will replace it. He is the Best of those who grants sustenance.” [Qurʾān, Saba‘ 34:39]
The Prophet Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said,
"Whoever calls to guidance will have a reward similar to the reward of the one who follows him, without the reward of either of them being lessened at all." [Related by Muslim (8/61)]

“And those who give that (their charity) which they give (and also do other good deeds) with their hearts full of fear (whether their alms and charities, etc., have been accepted or not), because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning).” [Qurʾān, Mu‘minoon 23:60]
