Dear community members
With the beginning of the blessed month of Sha`ban, the Ulama Council of Chicago is pleased to formally launch of the Imam al-Asr (aj) Relief Fund to assist those members of our community who are in hardship due to the current situation. Although our resources are limited, together we will Inshallah be able to provide much-needed help to those who need it. Any community members requesting assistance can fill out the attached form and mail it to the addresses listed on the form itself. The form will also be available for download from the websites of our member organizations. Once the form is received, our volunteers will reach out for verification and will follow up with each case. Full confidentiality of each applicant will be maintained.
If you would like to donate or contribute to the fund, please contact one of the members of the Ulama Council of Chicago whose numbers are given below (text message or WhatsApp message only). Religious dues including zakat, khums, and sadaqah can be used for this noble purpose. We also encourage those in need of assistance to apply for the Chicago COVID-19 Housing Assistance Grant, which can provide a one-time grant of $1,000. Undocumented workers can apply. The form can be found here: www.bit.ly/chirenta. We pray to Allah to remove the current hardship from all members of our community and all members of the human family.
Yours in faith,
Ulama Council of Chicago
