FREE Abaya, Anyone?

I was watching my Youtube subscriptions just now and you know what, I came across a video from a sister (KimDoNesia) saying thank you for receiving a FREE ABAYA. That really got me excited. I was like, "what is this all about hah?" so I just do some clicking and later found out about some sisters in the Middle East who are giving away FREE BLACK ABAYA. They will send to anywhere you are. Rich or poor, anyone can get the abaya. Here are a few videos about this cause.


Note: This one is quite funny but I really like it. fatimachan is awesome!


Note: This one is from makeydah, the receiver of the abaya & a really nice hijab. Good for you sis.


Note: I like watching her videos. She's so young, not even 18 yet.

And below is the forwarded letter from them.

Surah: Al-Fatiha

بسم الله الرّحمن الرّحيم

In the Name of Allah the Beneficent, the
Merciful

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُلْ لأَزْوَاجِكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَنِسَاءِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
يُدْنِينَ عَلَيْهِنَّ مِنْ جَلابِيبِهِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَنْ يُعْرَفْنَ فَلا
يُؤْذَيْنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُوراً رَحِيماً

O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies. That will be better, that they should be known so as not to be annoyed. And Allaah is Ever Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful [Quran, Surat al-Ahzaab 33:59]

A wonderful group of sisters from the Middle East have decided to give every Muslimah they possibly can a new abaya for free. May Allah grant them Jennatul Firdous, Ameen! I personally know the sister who organized it, and she told me to mention to all the sisters that your financial position doesn't matter. Rich or poor, you can still benefit from this opportunity, especially our new convert/revert sisters and sisters who live in places where Abayat are hard to find.

All abayat are brand new, black, and simple/plain (no designs at ALL). Don't let your size discourage you from ordering. We have up to XXXL sizes and if you're petite, we can send you the smallest size available & you can go to a seamstress to sew it to your size.

Al7amdulillah - the sisters have collected money to help cover the shipping/handling costs in order to ship the abayat to sisters. However, these funds are quite limited. Therefore, we humbly request that anyone who can afford to cover the cost of shipping kindly do so. This will enable other sisters, who can't financially afford it, to receive a free abaya as well.

If you're interested in receiving a free abaya, please reply back to this youtube account, and I can forward the messages to the moderator of the group (I'll also give you her private email through PM to be able to contact her directly):

-Name

-Address

-Desired Abaya Size (measure your bust/hip/height) -- the best thing would be to send your exact measurements, rather than small, medium, or large

-Also, indicate if you'll pay for the shipping costs

-OPTIONAL: Let us know about yourself! How you heard about us? Languages you know? Wear hijab? Niqab? Khimar? Marital situation? Mommy? New to Islam? This will enable us to send you extra items if they're available (books about Islam, marriage in Islam, hijabs, niqabs, etc.) This info is optional! You do NOT have to include it to get a free abaya.

--Please supply your email address so the moderators can directly contact you Inshallah (this makes it a lot easier on everyone!)


All we ask is two things. First, that you make dua for us. Second, if you benefit from this please email us so we can keep going. Your words & encouragement let us know to continue this project. If we don't get any replies or benefits, then we'll try to find something else to do for the sake of Allah that will help our sisters.

------------------------------------------------

The Fine Print:

*We ask that you do NOT order these abayat for a profit! Fear Allah! If you are going to sell these abayas, please do NOT order because we do NOT approve this. Of course we can't track who does this
but Allah is Al-Baseer (The One who sees everything) & His punishment is worse than anything we can do so please fear Allah and do NOT abuse these sister's kindness!

*If you decide to pay shipping, this will be done by reimbursing us with a cashier's check, money order, or cash for the amount of $12 (twelve dollars) AFTER you have received the abaya.

* Right now we are only able to ship to North America but if you are anywhere else in
the world, reply back & we'll see what we can do.

*We accept no returns! If the abaya doesnt fit you, pass it along to a sister whom it does.

***Last note*** This started as a small project with 5 extra Abayat to be donated. Alhamdulillah, 30 new abayat have been made and delivered around the US so far. Inshallah with more of a demand, the project will grow and many more Abayat will be given for free! So please send your requests, and we will do our best to meet the demand!

Let's help our fellow sisters in Islam dress appropriately! Spread this message!

Jazaki Allah Kheir everyone!
Peace :)

I'd love to have one too.

kakchik said...

Asalaam walikum

This is soo beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes. I mean its something soo simple, but it means soo much. May Allah continue to bless those sisters!

Hajar said...

Something new here ... it's great that the sisters are doing a good deed. So Kakchik, are you requesting for one?

kakchik said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Almallena.

Yes, what they are doing is really wonderful. May Allah give them lots of love and success in their daily life and after life.

kakchik said...

Hajar, they are great aren't they? As for requesting one, I'm still thinking about it. I al ready have lots of abaya and just bought 3 yesterday, maybe I'll pass this opportunity to other sisters who really need it.

Marjaan said...

assalam 3laykom,
I am this sister who started this project. JazakomAllah khier for all the nice comments you've written about this and for the youtube girls for making videos.
I'd like to note that it is only to North America. It is mentioned in the "fine print" but the siters who made the videos are not in the project so had good intentions when doing this. They heard about it & decided to make a video about it. May Allah reward them.
North America is all that we can afford to ship right now. May Allah enable us to spread internationally and insha'allah benefit our sisters everywhere.

Kimdonesia & two other international sisters were promised abayas before this was a "official" so to keep our word, we went ahead and sent them abayas. (A muslim will be accounted on the day of Judgement for his words.)
We will let you know if we ever go international. We are in the process of making a website.
Lastly, May Allah reward you for all the efforts that you do for His sake. It brings tears to my eyes knowing there are people out there genuinely wanting to benefit this ummah.

Marjaan said...

Also, I forgot to mention that the abayat are all plain black. Some people are mistaking this when seeing the videos. Fatimachan decided to be creative & keep changing from one abaya to another until she found the "best" which was a simple black abaya with a niqab (this is the reason they kept changing abayas in the video) cute right? masha'allah.
Also, makeydah got a black abaya with gold sleeves because we ran out of abayas before & didn't want to leave her without one. I hope this clears up some misunderstandings about the videos. If you are in North Ameriaca & would like a abaya, please email us (we're going to be putting up a website soon, insha'allah). If you're outside of North America, also email us & insha'allah we will let you know when we go international.
your sis in Islam

kakchik said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Sis Marjaan.

First, I'd like to thank you for dropping by my blog and second for leaving the comments.
Actually I already know that this project is only for North American but I only knew it after I blogged about the free abaya.
Insya-Allah I think sisters who read my blog would be tempted to browse the yotube and they'll see that correct information. I hope so.
I did mention that it's FREE BLACK ABAYA.
Sis Marjaan, what you are doing is really great sis. Not everyone would be generous enough to give freely. Kudos for you sis. May Allah bless you. Keep up the good work and please visit again.

Marjaan said...

Assalam 3laykom sis,
JazakiAllah khier for your sweet comments. May Allah reward every sister who is working on this (including those like yourself who are spreading the word) :) I only came up with the idea but it's all the sisters putting in their effort that makes it such a blessing to be a part of.
We named the project MARJAAN (the Muslimah's Abundant Resource to Jalabeen, Abayat And Niqabat) like it? insha'allah we're working on getting a website up. We officially have an email through the website. Any sister with a abaya request or questions can email Requests@marjaan.net
I can't wait until we go international...but I think this will be a long time...and lots of donations :)so insha'allah khier
Keep up the good work with your blog. I'm proud of you and blessed to have you as my sis in Islam.

kakchik said...

Wa'alaikumsalam Sis.
I'm so sorry because in the previous reply I called you Marjaan because I thought it's your name and it's a beautiful name.
You really run a good project Sis and I know one day all your efforts will be rewarded.
I hope the website will be up and running soon so that I can help to promote it.
