[ Below is a fundraising appeal from Shaykh Abdullah bin Hamid Ali for Brother Lumumba Shakur, a regular here on this forum. Please support and donate
As Salamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh,
A good friend of mine, Lumumba Shakur, recently suffered the lost of his mother to cancer approximately one week ago, and unfortunately does not have the funds necessary to secure for her a proper burial. Neither he nor his siblings are in a position to bear the financial burdens of their mother's funeral thereby leaving the only option left to them the prospect of cremation. Many of you know Lumumba who has been a dedicated and active student of Islam for over a decade having acted as TA for Sunnipath and other online educational endeavors. The family needs close to $10,000 by Saturday to ensure that his mother receives a proper funeral. Please help our brother in whatever way you can. Please give if you can. And if not, at least share this message with your facebook and offline friends. Monies can be donated to the Paypal account associated with the following email address:
