  1. Insh’Allah Dr. Zaid. May Allah make things easy for you and your loved ones, my dear respected elder. A’meen

    • Salaam Brother Khidr,

      We have a salary, but it has been up to two weeks late late and incomplete (as per contract) for some time now. I am feeding nine mouths and caring for one child in Uni (now PhD candidate) and three others still in grammar school. Fees plus upkeep, car, rent, insurance, food, utilities and amenities come to about USD 3000 monthly.

      I have been short of that now for 4-5 months, which has exhausted my reserves due to the university’s mismanagement (they do their best though). I make a little money from selling books from time to time, not much, and from editing that comes my way on occasion. So far, people have responded to this plea with about USD 500, giving us have enough for food and petrol.

      Thank you for your concern. May Allah grant you His Refuge and Guidance. Wasalaam. – oz

  2. Assalaam Alaykum Dr. Zaid

    I praying to Allah Subhanahuw Wataala to grant you a favour for the task you are still doing. ALLAH says

    يَا بُنَيَّ أَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ وَأْمُرْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَانْهَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَاصْبِرْ عَلَىٰ مَا أَصَابَكَ ۖ إِنَّ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ مِنْ عَزْمِ الْأُمُورِ ﴿١٧)

    “O my son! establish regular prayer, enjoin what is just, and forbid what is wrong: and bear with patient constancy whatever betide thee; for this is firmness (of purpose) in (the conduct of) affairs (34:14).

    That is a test for the believers! I’m still at the University of Dar Es Salaam persuing M.A. in Development Studies and it was painful when I saw your letter while I’m not well off to send you anything. May ALLAH receive my supplication to bestow you with His grants than you had before
