The Ansaar’s Humming Bees Early Development Institute

Asalamu alaikum Warahmatoulahi Wabarakatuhu,

We greet you all in the name of Allah the most beneficient, the most merciful.

In recent times, the Ummah is faced with alot of trials and tribulations. Some of these trials we blame on non-believers, others, we blame perhaps technology.

Many of us fail to go deeper and find the cause of our trials and tribulations. Yet if we are

truthful and are sincere in seeking the Allah and mercy of Allah, we will but admit the role our very hands have played.

The trials of the ummah can be associate with many things, but the most prominent is the fact that we have strayed from the teachings of the Quran and the examples of our beloved Prophet s.a.w.

‘The nations will summon each other upon you as you call guests to eat from a plate of food,’ they said ‘Will we be few in number on that day O Messenger of God?’ He said, ‘No, rather you will be many on that day, but you will be [disunited and weak] like the foam on the ocean. And God will remove the fear in the hearts of your enemies and place in your hearts al-wahan.’ They said, ‘What is al-wahan O Messenger of God?’ He said, ‘Love of this world and hatred of death. Abu Dawud, Sunan, Kitab al-Fitan wal-Malahim, Hadith no.4297.

Like many other muslim countries, the Gambia is no exception. A large number of Muslim families in The Gambia are facing a dilemma of their children adopting western values and morals. Children have lost their innocence and the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah are becoming strange teachings and concepts. Mostly, we look in shock and wonder what the ummah has become; ask where are the muslims, we mean, where the real muslims are; those who are true to their deen and live the example of a muslim, not people who have simply inherited the religion. Most times, we shake our heads with sad looks and feelings of hopelessness as to what could be done to bring the muslims back to islam. Usually, we make dua and hope for the best.

A group of young muslims in the Gambia (like many others in other parts of the world) have refused settling for the sad look while hoping for the best.

We must fulfill our duty to Allah to change the situation with our hearts and hands.

…. Lo! God changeth not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts. (Al-Ra’ad, 13:11)

It is with this intention that the “The Ansaar’s Humming Bees Early Development Institute’ is established (shortly called Ansaar).

It is the responsiblity of each and every parent to teach their children about Islam, to teach them about the teachings of the Quran and the examples of the Prophet s.a.w. Allah will not listen to any excuses on the day of Qiyaama that we were too busy with work or that our children would not listen to us or that our enviroments were to blame. Allah says in the interpretation of the meaning:-

And know that you possessions and your offspring are only a trial; and that it is Allah with whom there is a tremendous reward Holy Qu’ran 8:28.

The main objective therefore of Ansaar is to preserve the innocence of the muslim child by teaching them Islam in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah as well as subjects from mainstream curriculum. By the will and qadr of Allah, they will grow up as upright and positive future leaders who shall posses the qualities of righteousness and taqwa in their future professionals and careers.

Given that it’s a charitable organisation, Ansaar depends on the contribution of its members and muslims from the community. At present, we are using a mosque which has been given to us by the community to set up the school. Alhamdulilla the compound is very big and has a lot of potential yet funds are required to develope the place.

We are therefore requesting for donations from muslims to help in making Ansaar what we hope it to be.

You may either wish to help Ansaar either in cash or in kind to construct proper classrooms and toilets for the school.

In total, Ansaar requires: £3500 / $4900 / D127, 000 to refurbish the mosque. For more information, please email us for a copy of the budget lines.

As for him who giveth and fears [God] / And believeth in goodness / Surely We will ease his way unto the state of ease. (Al-Layl, 92:5-7).
