Who We Are
A Continuous Charity was coined from the statement of our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) when he said, “When a man dies, all his deeds come to an end except for three: a continuous charity, beneficial knowledge and a righteous child who will pray for him” (Muslim).
Education – Islamic & Secular
The pursuit of education, both Islamic and secular, is one of greatest keys to success in this life and the next. Allah says, “It is only those who have knowledge from among His slaves that fear Allah” (Fatir: 28) and other places in the Quran.
Being equipped with both types of knowledge is necessary for the development of Muslim communities in the 21st century. It was narrated by Anas ibn Maalik that the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) said, “The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim” (Ibn Majah, Sahih).
Muslims should search for alternatives to interest-based loans to fund their education. Allah says, “Oh you who believe, do not consume interest, doubled and multiplied, but fear Allah so that you may be successful” (Aal-Imran:130).
This effort will only benefit us when we meet Allah. The Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) said, “When a man dies, all of his deeds come to an end except for three: a continuous charity, beneficial knowledge, and a righteous child who will pray for him” (Muslim).
