Bihar Anjuman’s Dammam-Khobar chapter organized a ‘Dine to Educate’
program, a benefit dinner and awareness programme, on Thursday, January
12, to launch its upcoming project AMBITION
aimed at adopting to educate children belonging to
the poorer sections of the society.
Some 550 Guests & Delegates who gathered at Dunes International
School, Al-Khobar were welcomed by Mr. Syed Tahseen Ahmad Sb who
emphasized on the details of the project, AMBITION 2020. The
presidential speech was given by Janab Dr. Syed Tasneem-ur-Rahman Sb,
an orthopaedic consultant at ARAMCO Hospital. A symposium on "WORST
EDUCATIONAL CONDITION IN BIHAR & JHARKHAND - Reason and
solution" was presided over and summed up by Mr. Muazzam Naik who
called for setting up of minority educational institutions as an
immediate and vital solution.
Mr. Md. Salahuddin Khan Sb, Gen. Secy. (Dammam-Khobar chapter) stressed
on the importance of Muslim community to join hands for helping the
poor and needy as he presented the Annual Achievement Report 2011 of
this chapter. A call was given to one and all to come forward and get
ready to take the challenge that lies ahead. Bihar Anjuman
Dammam-Khobar Chapter’s effort to take the onus, and belief in
self-help, came up as a clear message through the words of
Rasheeda, a house-maid, sends her child, Abdul, to a nearby
dhaba as early as five in the morning when the Muazzin calls for Fajr
prayer, only to return by late night. Abdul and Muslim are kids alike
who have lost all rights as a human beings, and live a life of utter
slavery, deprived of basic needs, proper food, remain malnourished, and
under these circumstances, education can never be their priority.
Indian Muslims are a victim of neglect and deprivation, not just by the
state, but by their own affluent brothers who are least bothered to
come out of their cosy blankets.
Bihar Anjuman’s Dammam-Khobar Chapter has pledged, in this scenario, to
proactively make things happen by reaching out to people whose hearts
still beat for the Ummah, and by inspiring others in our effort to help
our less fortunate brothers in faith. Allah (swt) calls us to spend in
His way, that of the needy, for they have a share in our income and
spending on them is an obligation (Fardh) upon us.
project, AMBITION 2020, that Bihar Anjuman’s Dammam-Khobar Chapter has
undertaken aims to adopt a child from such sections of our society that
live in abject poverty and are willing but incapable to educate their
