I received a visit from an amazing sister who is actually my teacher of Quran, she is heavily pregnant ( 36 weeks) has 2 sons and her husband teaches children Quran in the masjid.
The sister continued to tell me her home is falling apart, the wall has a huge crack which is entering into the toilet from the corridor of the home. She told me it has become so bad now that when it rains it is leaking and the sound of it cracking is continuous.
We are trying to get some men to come in and fix the wall and roof but the job isn’t as simple as fixing a wall as it is the outside wall of their home, roof and internal structural wall. The sister wears niqqab and fears her home will fall down on their heads and at worst the people outside will see her without her niqqab on.
Their home is an old mud house that has had few repairs over the years and now is in need of a serious fixing before it actually collapses and leaves the sister and her children in a very bad state.
Although this sister is my teacher and close friend she is an amazing person and would do anything for anyone, she helps other sisters with quran too. Her husband doesn’t have any regular work but does small jobs he can find to make money for food, they don’t have to pay rent as the house is theirs alhamdulillah but they still cant afford to pay the repairs needed.
We got a quote to fix the wall and roof area which is about £500 but the brothers said they wont know exactly until they get into the structure and see how deep the damage is and it could be alot more then that.
We need to put some money down to pay the men to come out and start the work when the weather is good for a few days and start the repairs. If it will cost more we can start raising more inshaAllah at that time to cover the excess.
May Allah ease the affairs of our sister and make things easy for them and anyone who helps them Ameen
Barrak Allahu feekum
