I can't say enough about Al Maun Fund. They truly are a relief for so many families who are in need. When someone is in need, they sincerely strive to help in every way. Instead of constantly looking down their noses asking how did you let it get this bad, they look for ways to solve the problem. What a comfort to those in need.

The administration has been unselfishly assisting their community long before Al Maun Fund came to be. I personally know many who've benefited from their programs and are extremely grateful. I pray to the Most Merciful, the Provider, that they are able to continue in their blessed endeavors - by His Permission Alone - for years to come.

Asalaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Al Maun Fund was first introduced to me on Facebook. At first glance I glazed over it but day after day I noticed that their posts started popping up everyday whether it be asking for shoe donations to thanking those that assisted a family in need who needed to relocate. Knowing that you have people that you can turn to when it seems like you are free falling into a pit of despair, rest assured Al Maun Fund will be there to catch you.

Al Maun Fund has been a life saver for many who need help. They help with everything from Utilities, Rent, Prescriptions, Eyeglasses, to Food Boxes. Al Maun Fund has been hope for many who had given up hope. They have clothed numerous women and children. They have furnished children with warm coats for the winter, they help the expecting and new mothers with baby bundles, they also provide work resources to those seeking employment. Al Maun Fund is not like any other charity, you can truly feel that they are willing to help you in any way that they can.

Al Maun Fund has been a blessing to many families. They are able to assist with a wide array of services. This is the first place I would go to if I was in need and I definitely have referred many others to Al Maun in the past and will continue to do so in the future God willing. The most wonderful thing about this organization is if they do not have the resource to help a family at the time they WILL GO OUT AND FIND THEM, not every other organization can say that.

I have been recommending Al Maun Fund since I first heard about it back in 2006. I am constantly amazed at the amount of support they are able to provide for our brothers and sisters in trial, by the Aid of Allah. I personally know someone who they helped when she was a new shahadah, giving her information and a garment, and they were so quick to respond. They also have helped a large number of people with financial assistance on their bills, as well as getting the word out about their problem so that the people make du'a. Allah knows best about them, but I am very proud of this organization and may Allah support it and keep it successful.

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.

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 :)

Al-Maun fund is an organization that has helped many Muslim families in need. They continue to serve the Muslim community with dignity, preservation, perseverance, commitment, love, care, respect, honor and compassion. I personally know quite a few families who have benefited from the donations of the Al-Maun fund organization. I am truly grateful on behalf of those who have had their bills paid, groceries purchased, modes of transportation repaired, etc all first and foremost by the permission of mercy of Allaah and then Al-Maun fun. I pray that Allaah continues to bless and reward the brother and sisters of Al-Maun fund and increase them in whatever they need to be able to continue serving the Muslim community, Aameen!

I have received assistance from Al Maun Fund 2 or 3 times since it's start. The organization was ran by professional women that helped me and my family immediately. They not only served as a financial aid to my family, but as a spiritual aid as well. They also gave me resources to other places that may be able to help me with further assistance. I have recommended many people to Al Maun Fund, and they came back with positive views as well. :-) I pray that this organization continues to flourish in order to continue helping the people.

I worked with Al-Maun Fund to create some ideas for a Unique Selling Proposition and tagline for an upcoming online marketing campaign. I became aware of the charity through my sister, and was impressed with their simple goal: to make that little bit of extra cash you give count for others in major ways.

We connected through Twitter, and then on the phone. The founders of this charity are real, down-to-earth and friendly, and not penny-pinching or bureaucratic about benefiting others. We talked about their aid process, their goals, and their values. I learned about the "dignity, respect, and personal advice" they offer people seeking aid, the "3-to-5-day" processing time from receipt of information to aid received, and their national reach made local through connections via the internet.

The passion of Al-Maun Fund is not to throw money at people, but to give them solace in momentary struggles. I appreciate their efforts and wish them success.

My family and I had moved and money was tight. We contacted the al-Mauan fund and were helped within 2 days.
The al-Maun fund fills a much needed void for people who find themselves in need of a small kindness. The staff were very professional and polite and most of all understanding.
I could write a book about the good experience I had with al-Maun fund, but I will reserve that for thanking Allah that this organization exists.

I have donated to Al Maun Fund. The reason for my donation is that I have been in a situation where I need a place to go. I had to return home to my non-muslim family instead. I would like to contribute to this not happening to any other Muslim women and children especially.

I've always been a person who looks for ways that I can assist others, particularly other single mothers like myself. A friend of mine told me about Al Maun Fund and I liked that it's about Muslim women assisting others.

I was able to assist someone who was in need of a winter coat and so without hesitation I went to my closet and was able to find a suitable one that didn't fit me correctly but was able to assist someone else.

I received a very nice thank you note from the recipient, which was unexpected and really not necessary since I gave from my heart and not because I wanted someone to acknowledge what I had done.

In these tough economic times, programs like Al Maun Fund are a blessing to many people and is a means for us to help one another.

Al Maun Fund is a wonderful organization that has been blessed to be able to offer a service helping others. It takes a lot of time and effort to oversee the needs of others and to help them accomplish them. There are not many people who are able to do this. It is a very self less organization and some of the members may be in a situation whereas they need help themselves but have put their needs aside to give to others. This in and of itself is remarkable. They try with all their level best to fulfill the many request they recieve and this is a very difficult task. I pray that Al Maun Fund continues to be able to serve the needs of the people who reach out to them especially the many single moms with children who are torn between having to go out to provide for their child and raise them properly.

My experience with Maun is as a donor as well as a reference for someone in need of help. As for being a Maun donor, although my contributions were small I felt it was much appreciated by Maun staff. As for being a reference to someone seeking help, the staff was very professional over the phone in the verification of the needy person and they did receive the help that was needed; and for this I am grateful to Maun. Although, contributions may be small, the time and effort that is spent making sure requests are valid is appreciated by me as I know that the funds are going for legitimate needs. This is something that should not be overlooked. Thank you for allowing me this chance to share. All the best!

I have known about Al-Maun Fund and the great assistance they provide to needy families for over five years. Everything about their organization is professional, respectful, and transparent. Although I do not have a lot of money to donate, I have been able to assist with small amounts throughout the years and I know that what I am able to give goes a long way in helping those less fortunate in their times of need. We all know that sometimes it is just something as small as falling behind with the electric bill or needing a minor repair to your automobile that could set you back so much and just being able to help others out of those types of situations is a real blessing. I look forward to being a donor to al-Maun Fund for many more years to come.

I first learned about Al Maun Fund through an online network. When I found out about the one-to-one, grassroots, bootstrap help they give to single mothers and other disadvantaged families, I knew this was a place where every dollar I gave would go to its intended recipient, and that's important to me. I also feel strongly that since children of single mothers are especially at risk, this was an important cause. The fact that the Fund does not simply hand out cash, but gives aid 'in kind', like food baskets, help paying utility bills and doctor visit expenses, is proof that it's a worthwhile cause, as the money is going towards necessities, and is not just given away without controlling what it's spent on.
