My experience working with staff at Baab Nasr has been delightful. Baabun Nasr truly stands by their mission, showing that helping meet the community's need is priority to them. Making everyone comfortable as they walk through the doors most of them already in distress, when individuals leave they leave with something they did not walk in with, even if it was something as small as kind word.

Baabun Nasr for many years have helped and aided the community at large. From food drives, clothing drives, collecting change and finding resources for those in need they always give their full effort and more into caring and exceeding the needs of the people. At one point I was a donor donating items I no longer needed for my house but then I found myself on the receiving end of the Baabun Nasr family being supplied with clothes, hugs, prayers, and kind/gentle reminders when our house caught on fire and found ourselves homeless and without basic nessisties. This organization is a pillar in our community. It serves a purpose everyday by touching the hearts of the people they help. I know from the past I believed that the organization was good but from experiencing how well you are treated and the geninue caring for one's well being is beyond your expectations. This is an Organization that cares and loves what they do!! Thank you Baabun Nasr for all that you do!

Baabun Nasr is a great non profit organization that has assisted me and my family with clothing needs. I am a low income parent and work a part time job with three children. I was in need of school uniforms for my children and holiday clothing for our Islamic celebrations. The organization also provided my family with back to school supplies and needed resources from other community outreach ognizations.

I picked Donor. However, I do volunteer and sometimes a client. This organization by far exceeds it's limitations. It has been in my experience that if a person is in need and Baabun Nasr doesn't have the resources that they will go above and beyond to aid a person. Also, though is A Muslim owned and Operated establishment.... There are no preferences interns of respect, love, care and understanding. Many people from various walks of life have come through their doors and NEVER ONE has been turned away.

The owner/operator has a geniue care and concern. I have noticed that is she is unable to aid an individual knowing that they are in true need. That she has become sadden on their behalf and supplicate by asking "The Creator and The Provider of all of mankind" Allah(God) to facilitate the needs of that individual.

Everyone that has come to Baabun Nasr has always been treated as a PERSON not a number. Which often happens when serving a large community such as Philadelphia.

I could go on praising This establishment that Allah (God) has truly blessed!

Umm Layla: I ask Allah(God) to protect your, your family and Baabun Nasr from all EVIL!
Ameen!

What more can be said for an organization that gives of themselves for the sake of rewards not truly measurable by mankind. From its inception, incubation, design, realization and fruition, the owners of Baabun Nasr truly made a difference in the lives of all people. It is a pleasure to have associated myself with the likes of this esteemed non-profit. Their mission is continual in aiding those in need and a reminder for me and my family to aid those who aid the people. Abu Na'ilah Aadil Sabuur

When you think of Baabun Nasr just think of giving or receiving, whichever end you are on you won't be displeased. It's getting cold and many of us need to think outside of our own warmth and comfortability. Just think, right now somebody is hungry, someone is cold, a small chid may be crying from being cold, hungry, and possibly wet from lack of diapers. set your mind at ease knowing that you can help situations like these. By contacting Baabun Nasr and giving what you can, and don't think " oh no one can use this or someone may not like these" just give and let your Baabun Nasr organizer be the judge of that. It's organizations like Baabun Nasr that if mimmicked throughout the country at large could possibly end starvation and poverty. Im grateful to have Baabun Nasr in my city because things and situations change from one time to another and one never knows where he or she will be tomorrow. So give for you may even be giving to yourself, help, because you may be helping yourself, and don't forget for you may be forgetting about yourself. Keep up the good work Baabun Nasr and thanks for your support.

Baabun Nasr is an organization that is literally a lifeline in the community. The services provided are everything from clothing, shoes, food and so much more. There was just a coat drive held and seeing the many people who were able to walk away with coats for their families was awesome. Each time I come in the staff ask my which size shoes my daughter currently wears as she is growing rather quickly and they help me to find her size. I can not say enough about this non profit and hope they get the recognition they so deeply deserve.

The food was even bigger! Furthermore, the words of kindness,love,and encouragement was beyond more better than anything that could fill my belly and clothe my back.

The Wonderful Staff at Baabun Nasr have always been genuinely kind to me and my family. They offer so much beneficial resources that are much needed in our community. It is a blessing that whenever I come across women who are in need I am able to refer them to Baabun Nasr. Once I met a sister who was newly divorced, out of work and she had small children. She was feeling very helpless and was worried about her and her children's basic needs. I referred her to Baabun Nasr where she went and got a voucher for clothes, food and some housing supplies. She called me and told me how happy she was after she had met the helpful staff at Baabun Nasr and how much assistance she recieved from them. Also how they didnt make her feel like she was strange and assured her that everyone goes through times like that. I knew it was a blessing that I was able to refer her to them. May Allah reward the Considerate and Caring Staff at Baabun Nasr and allow many more communities to learn and establish organizations like them!

I dropped off the items and was delighted after learning the mission of Babe Nasr's goals. They're not just about serving a particular community but there to service everyone who are in need. I love sister Umm Laylah, her persona is contagious & loves how her family supports her standing firm by her side. Stop by & you'll see what I'm talking about.

I have been apart of Baabun Nasr since the beginning, and it has been both a blessing and a pleasure watching this program expand to what is it now. I remember when we were just running it out of the basement of my home and now it is in a factory growing tremendously. Baabun Nasr has always focused its goal on tending to the community both Muslim and non Muslim, and so far they've stayed on the right track. Baabun Nasr has helped the people with their basic need whether it be food clothes or school supplies they always helped, they are loving, caring, and non judgmental. Baabun Nasr has grown over the years and will continue to grow in the years to come

Baabun Nasr has been a tremendous help to those that are in need. From food to school supplies, the organization has helped to reduce the financial and sometimes even the mental stress, of those who truly needed assistance. Over the years, the organization has really grown, and through that growth, Baabun Nasr has been able to help more people, in more ways. On a more personal note, I've been fortunate enough to make donations to this organizations, in which I hope to receive blessings for and I've had the opportunity of meeting some of those that I've been able to help.

I first found out about Baabun Nasr by a friend during their back-to-school school supply giveaway. I was in dire need of school supplies for my son and was low on funds. The supplies were of good quality and we use them everyday. I have since donated clothes and toys to them. The Eid toys were awesome as well. Keep up the good work and may Allah bless the organization and its staff with an abundance of blessings.

I have been a supporter of this fantastic organization for a number of years. They have grown by leaps and bounds with the many services they offer, in a community that is dire need of them. They look at the whole person and thus address multiple needs at one time. Their pantry has feed the hungry, their thrift store clothed families and they provide space for many community events. They work together with other organizations in order to provide comprehensive help to clients. Commitment and attentiveness to their clients needs makes Baabun Nasr even more outstanding.
