Surah Al-Baqara Verse 177
It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces towards East or West; but it is righteousness to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity, to fulfill the contracts which we have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the God fearing (Quran 2:177).

Almajiri Literacy and Numeracy Skills Acquisition Project
One of our outstanding activities is the termly orphan's week where these orphans get to interact with one another as well as with us. The initiative has always boosted the social, moral and critical thinking disposition of the youngsters. The activities include competitions, riddles, games, art work etc. A minimum of N10,000,000 (Ten Million Naira) is spent annually to keep these 100young and ambitious children in their respective schools.
We carry out weekly humanitarian visits to orphanage home, hospitals, correctional centres as well as remand home, in Minna. Assorted items are bought and distributed to the inmates, orphans and patients of these facilities. Stories and other relevant lessons are shared with orphans of the orphanage home. Prayers and counselling services are offered to the patients at the hospital and inmates of the remand home/correctional centres. To give them sense of belonging during festivities, sallah parties are organized for the orphans of the orphanage home during both the eid el-fitri and eid al-adha festivals. This helps the kids to have a memorable celebration and have fun. The inmates of the remand home also benefit from the 2 festivities as similar parties are organized for them.
