Give it up for HHUGS…
Could you sacrifice your guilty pleasures so that a family in need can have access to basic necessities? Sign up to the HHUGS challenge and follow the footsteps of Ibrahim by giving up something you love during the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah. It could be caffeine, sugar, junk food or maybe even social media! Raise funds through sponsorship, as you tackle your nafs, and give relief to a HHUGS family this Eid ul Adha.
Sacrifice what you love this DHul HIjjah, for a great reward!
Every Dhul Hijjah we commemorate the sacrifice made by the beloved of Allah, Ibrahim (as) – ready to give what he loved most for Him, the ultimate route to attain piety and His love.
Knowing the importance of this concept, the Companions of the Prophet (saw) would actively look to give away that which they loved in charity. 'Abdullah ibn 'Umar used to give away sweets in charity saying, 'I am aware of Allah's saying; "You shall not attain piety until you spend out of that which is beloved to you" [3: 92] and Allah knows that I love sweets.'
In this spirit, in the best days of the year – days greater in virtue than the days of Ramadhan - we challenge you to sacrifice what you love and give it up for HHUGS!
Whether you want to go veggie, sugar free or tech free for 10 days, you can raise just £10 a day to help hundreds of vulnerable women and children, living in our midst in the UK.
