Asalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah, Alhamdulillaah I thank Allaah subhannah wa ta'ala for this organization. I also thank Him for the dedicated people that work tirelessly to achieve such success in aiding the needs of so very many people. Thank you Al Maun Fund, you all assisted our family during a very difficult time. We are a large family and are often left unhelped however Al Maun did not hesitate to assist us in every way that they could and we are ever greatful for the services afforded to us. Please know that your work here is very unique and valuable. It is also done with respect and we never felt like we were second class citizens in the least. Again thank you and May Allaah strengthen the organization and reward those that perform such great work on its behalf as well as the donors. Aameen

I've worked directly with these wonderful sisters and can personally vouch for them. They have helped SEVERAL Muslim families out of dire situations including food assistance, domestic violence, homelessness, eviction assistance, utility assistance, Islamic and secular clothing assistance and new shahadah packets. ♥ They are amongst the number one Muslim organizations on the East Coast and possibly in the country. Every little bit counts and these ladies have given their hearts to helping the people understand Islam and understand the needs of the Muslims.

First I would like to thank the ladies at Al Muan Fund for offering this service. Al Maun Fund has helped many needed people with big and small stresses a like. I am greatful to God to allow Al Maun to be there for me when I needed someone in my corner the most. So here is my story. I was recently divorced and had a major decrease in my income. I need an apartment badly but did not have enough money for the deposit nor for the electric bill deposit. I also wanted to create a stable life style for my daughter, being that we were living with someone and it was becoming uncomfortable. The ladies at Al Maun Fund gave me the maxium support they could give me. They called, and emailed me and my family memebers to ensure I was ok during and after this process. I really sometimes find it hard to put into words how I felt having them by my side. So I recieved the funds and was able to move in my apartment successfully with the help of Al Maun Fund.

i havent personally received help from the al maun fund but i have heard of this fund from some people who have received help and from people that know the distributers of the services that they offer. From the comments that I've heard from these people, this fund seems to be really helpful to people in need whether the need is small or great the fund tries to help you with whatever it is. I give this fund a full five star rating. May God continue to bless the fund with success and the people that run it with good in this life and the hereafter.

In 2008 I reached out to Al Maun Fund when my family was in need and I mostly expected to not receive help as many charitable groups were so maxed out having already helped so many people in need. However, Al Maun Fund staff reached right back out to me and assissted me in good faith, and it was by God's Will and Mercy. They had genuine care and went above and beyond to help us. Al Maun Fund continues to thrive by God's Will. May they continue to be blessed and righteous in their efforts, ameen.

Al Maun Fund is a great not-for-profit organization that really connects the contributor with the actual people receiving the charity. Although you do not know the names of the people receiving the charity, Al Maun Fund provides you with their information. Therefore, giving the donor a glimpse into others lives and opening up their hearts by giving them whatever amount of money they could (literally). It is not ambiguous, nor grandiose. I love working for this charity because it's real and helps people like me, living the middle-class life, who sometimes needs to be reminded that there are others who are in need. They are not on top of your back for money nor do they ask for much. I would recommend this charity to anyone, and it is the only one that I contribute to :)

Their thank-you notes encourage me to send more and more. They make you feel connected to those in need, and with them personally, with their hand-written Hallmark thank-you cards

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make any changes!

I love Al Maun fund. Although I have never received any money from them, I love the fact that others are able to turn to them and get what they need. The owners/ operators go out of their way to keep it going. I hope others will keep donating so that the benefit can be there for whomever needs it.
