With little or no experience in planting or gardening, 15 youth volunteered to plant trees with MAS Youth Give and Fairfax ReLeaf, a nonprofit organization with a mission to plant and preserve trees in Fairfax County. Volunteers met on Saturday, November 3rd with their gardening gloves and gallons of water, ready to add life to Idylwood Park in Falls Church, VA.
Today (November 11, 2007) members of Dar Al Hijrah Outreach were present with members of the Muslim American Veteran’s Association, current Muslim US Military Members, and others from the DC Muslim community to honor Muslim World War II Veterans.

Allah Helps Those who help Others. On the authority of Abu Huraria (R.A.A) that the Prophet Mohammed (S.A.A.W) said: “whosoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the grief’s of the day of the judgment. And whosoever alleviates the lot of a needy person, Allah will alleviate his lot in this world and the next.”
Please, we need Doctors to help support this program. Jazzakum Allah Khair
