Aalif Foundation sponsored the Light Upon Light Orphan Benefit Dinner for us in New Jersey. Here is the account from Nouran Ali, Aalif’s President.
With the grace of God, AALIF had its first successful benefit dinner. On April 18, 2015, we were able to host Dian Alyan, founder of the Give Light Foundation, amongst other esteemed guest speakers. Of these speakers, we were delighted to have Sheikh Hassan Laccheb, faculty member of Tayseer Seminary, Tarik Elmessidi, founder of Celebrate Mercy, and Moaz Alnass, who engulfed us with his remembrance of the Prophet (peace be upon him) through his tranquil and spiritual songs.
We had several art pieces donated by amazing artists that were auctioned to benefit the children of GiveLight. Of these artists, we were proud to have pieces handcrafted by Munisa Aksoy, and her mother, and paintings drawn by Heba Elhomsy, and Yasmeen Rashid!
We had an overflow of volunteers who drove from distances just to make this event possible. AALIF would like to thank each an every one of the volunteers who came out to support this cause, and our very own MC, Eman Eljayih!
It was an amazing night, with amazing guests, outstanding volunteers and a spectacular cause! May Allah swt accept our actions and allow us to have this benefit dinner periodically.
