Eid Mubarak sent with HHUGS!


On behalf of all the members of our team and the families, HHUGS wish you and your family a warm Eid Mubarak! May Allah fill this day with much joy and barakah for us all. Ameen.

Throughout the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah just passed, you have shown incredible generosity in helping to deliver HHUGS families with an unforgettable Eid. There are however always families left who experience an Eid starkly different to our own- to help some of the most vulnerable members of the community- it is still not too late to make a difference!

An Eid for everybody

"Sometimes the community meets for the Eid festival outside my allowed boundary and the same goes for other religious events or functions. I feel as if the boundary has excommunicated me and my family from the entire community."
HHUGS beneficiary 

Reconnect with the true spirit of Eid by helping to unite families  through prison visits, hosting children’s Eid parties or donating your Qurbani to families often left behind. As we greet our own friends, families and neighbours with the warmest wishes for Eid, let us also make this Eid something special for families who will appreciate it most.

"We always received a card for Eid, gifts for children - they don't forget us in these very sensitive moments; Always a call to have news; an invitation during Ramadan. JazakumAllah khayran to those men and women. May Allah support them, bless their funds and actions, ameen."
Wife of a detainee

"JazakAllah khair for Eid gifts. Kids are sooo happy enjoying their sweets and playing with the balloons, love everything. Thank you so much for putting a smile on our faces and making me and my kids happy. May Allah reward you and bless you all, ameen."
Wife of a detainee

 

 “Eid is not for the one with beautiful clothes & fine means of transport, Eid is for the one whose sins are forgiven. Eid is not for the one who wears new clothes. Eid is for the one whose obedience rises.” (Ibn Rajab)

There’s nothing better to efface your sins than sadaqah.

 

Ways to deliver an unforgettable Eid!

Eid gifts for children £10



Just as we put together lists of presents for our friends and families, show that little bit of love for the HHUGs family children this Eid. We all love a thoughtful present and the joy it will bring for the children who get by on so little is a beautiful investment to make.

“The children grow up without a father figure, not having what their friends have, not being able to ask their parents for Eid gifts, feeling deprived and inadequate compared to their friends.”

A family united for them, hearts united by you

Family prison visit: £40


We often take it for granted that we will see our relatives on Eid. When prisons are far away, visiting times limited and transport means hard to come by- visiting your loved one is prison can be a stressful affair. Often times, families have to cancel the few opportunities they are given to even see one another because of the high cost of arranging a vehicle and driver for multiple visitors (including children). Donating towards an Eid prison visit will enable a family to physically see one another and have the in-person interaction to mark this blessed occasion.

"We often take it for granted that we can see our loved ones on Eid...Even if it was the weekend after Eid that day would feel like Eid. Alhamdulillah we were able to see our relatives and spend time with them even if for only about 90 mins."

Host an Eid Extravaganza £300



Running for many years now, our HHUGS Eid parties play a crucial part in uniting people who spend Eid alone and without anybody to celebrate with. Helping to host an Eid extravaganza brings together families who would otherwise have no plans for the day and brings special delight to children who now have something to look forward to. Your donation will cover the cost of venue hire, catering and activities for children ranging from face-painters, bouncy castles and entertainers for the day.

In times when such ‘luxuries’ such as parties are rare, we can show others that through Eid, Allah truly gives us cause for joy.
