INFORMATION ON THE CHARITIES AND CAUSES AND CLOTHING LIST
Ebrahim College was founded in 2003 and teaches approximately 3000 students per annum. Their commitment to educating the Ummah includes:
Musab ibn Umair Fund (Scholarship):
Supports students who can’t afford the cost of their studies in two categories. Non Zakah funds - used to grant scholarships & bursaries to students whose financial circumstances do not qualify them to receive Zakah but it is clear that they still require financial assistance to be able to study. Zakah funds - used to grant scholarships and bursaries to students who legally qualify to receive zakah.
It would be impossible for these students to study without this support. Donors who contribute to this fund will receive the reward for every nugget of knowledge these students receive, every Qur’anic verse and prophetic Hadith studied and learnt will be your legacy and will be recorded in your book of deeds inn shaa Allah. What’s more some of the grantees/scholars are in their final year of their studies and will graduate this year beginning their journey of leadership and service to the community.
