Darulfatwa welcomes Dr. Taha Naji

President of the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the worlds, and may Allah raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him, and protect his nation from that which he feared for them.


Allah the Exalted said in the Holy Qur’an:


{وتعاونوا على البر والتقوى ولا تعاونوا على الإثم والعدوان}

Which means: [Collaborate with one another to achieve virtue and piety, and do not collaborate with one another in sin and transgression.]


The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said:

(من كان يؤمن بالله واليوم والآخر فليكرم ضيفه)

Which means: [Let the one who believes in Allah and the Hereafter take care of his guests.]


In Compliance with this glorious Ayah and Hadith, and out of love for Allah and his beloved Prophet, Shaykh Salim Alwan Al-Husainiyy, Chairman of Darulfatwa Australia, invited various leaders and representatives of the Islamic Community to congregate in welcoming Dr. Taha Naji President of the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects
