On 6th November, Secretary General of MQI UK skydives to raise funds for the Pakistan flood victims
Message from Tahir Muhammad to sponsors after the jump..
Peace and glad tidings to all!
I would like to thank you all for your moral and financial support and also for all your duas.
Alhamdolillah I have raised nearly £3000 for the flood victims of Pakistan and I will continue to keep raising further funds.
I would like to share the experience with you. It was an amazing experience. At 8.00am myself and Br Tahseen Khalid arrived at the airfield, reported to the office and met other brother and sisters who were also there for their parachute jump. At around 9:00am, the first batch went for their jump and I was in the second batch and we left about 10:00am. Before I left I sent SMS to my sponsors to inform them that I was going up in the air now for my parachute jump.
When the plane got to 10,000 ft up in the air, I was having second thoughts but I said to myself, I had come this far, there was no way out now. When we were about to jump, I felt that my heart was going to stop but within seconds we were going 180 miles an hour towards the ground. After 60 seconds the parachute opened and I could try and relax and enjoy the view.
Within a few minutes we landed on the ground, and a personal feat was complete - it was an amazing experience, maybe I'll go on course to attempt solo Sky Diving next.
Finally, I would like to thank Minhaj Welfare Foundation (MWF) for providing me the opportunity to raise funds for flood affectees, it was and is a very good cause and I request everyone to join hands with MWF and support them them in this great cause.
Why did I chose MWF?
One of the main reason I have chose this charity is that 100% of your donation goes towards the actual cause, one would wonder how is this is possible? The office expenditures for MWF office in UK are paid through the Gift aid received from these donations.
I pay tribute to MWF who work tirelessly to help the needy people around the globe, I pray to Allah SWT to reward all the people involved in MWF work and may Allah give us Taufeeq to help them further this great service to humanity. Ameen!
