Why Sponsor a Child on the eTaalib Platform?
For many of us, access to a high quality education is something that we may take for granted. However, unfortunately the reality for many children around the world is that education is a luxury and not a right.
Furthermore, we find that even those who come from ‘developed countries’ are often not afforded the opportunity to study in an environment that takes into consideration their needs as a Muslim. If we look at the UK as an example, the average cost of a private Islamic school in London is approximately £4,000 per year. If a family had 3 children, it would be very difficult for them to afford £12,000 a year for their children’s education. Therefore, they would either need to compromise and send their children to state schools or they could opt to independently homeschool their children.
For many parents, homeschooling is not currently a viable option, as they themselves have limited academic backgrounds and/or experience. Consequently, even if they attempted to homeschool their children, the quality of the education would be compromised.
By sponsoring a child’s education on the eTaalib platform, you will be a means of them having access to a high quality of education, without compromising their beliefs as a Muslim. Additionaly, not only will you be able to see the fruits of your sponsorship through the child’s educational progress, but as Muslims we are also conscious that any good deeds that we perform in this life will enable us to receive a much greater reward in the hereafter.
With Allah’s permission, we hope that your sponsorship will be a means for the sponsored children to attain beneficial knowledge that will benefit them in both this life and the next, in shaa Allah.
The Prophet Muhammed (SallaAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) mentioned to us in an authentic narration that:
“Whoever calls to guidance will have a reward similar to those who follow him, without detracting from their rewards at all…”
And we hope and anticipate from Allah, The Most High, that he rewards each and every sponsor for the good deeds carried out by the children who have been sponsored and subsequently learnt beneficial knowledge and acted upon it on our platform. Whether that be for every wudhu they make, every salaah they pray or any good deed they carry out with Allah’s permission.
