Ps: I don't know how this quote system works, so adding code to differentiate.
Start with the right intention. Don't start because people of other religions are doing it. Don't start because you want to compete against people of other religions. Start to please Allah and because it is our duty to help others.
Assalamua'laikum. No, we are neither starting it because others are doing it, nor to compete with others. Infact we are not even taking donations to start this. We are doing it in our own limits.
Help Muslims first! There are plenty of Muslims and muslim villages in India that need help. There are many elderly muslims, sick muslims, disabled muslims, orphan muslims, poverty stricken muslims that need help. Help them first so they do not have to lower themselves before the idol worshippers. Help them first so their iman is not destroyed. Help them first to strengthen the muslim community.
Sure, while our focus is on muslims, we wouldn't deny others too. One of our first intents is to build orphanage for muslim boys and girls.
It is very fashionable today to help everyone to the extent of showing preference to non muslims over muslims. We muslims are so desperate to show the world that we are just like you guys. We are not terrorists just like you guys. We are not fundamentalists just like you guys. But the fact is we should always have preference over a fellow muslim. We Muslims are one ummah! Muslims are brothers and sisters. The muslim mothers and fathers are our mothers and fathers. The muslim children are our children. Let's get our own house in order first, before we try to clean up other people's houses. Of course that does not mean we do injustice to non Muslims. And of course if a non muslim COMES to us for help then we MUST help with the intention of bringing them closer to Islam. But preference MUST be given to our own. ESPECIALLY in this day and age where Muslims are facing worldwide oppression and persecution. Muslims are running to the non Muslims for help and losing their iman. Even in a 'civilised' country such as the UK non Muslims give preference to other non Muslims over muslims in every walk of life. So redress that imbalance by helping our own first. Save the iman of your fellow Muslims. Save the dignity of your fellow Muslims. Stop the muslims from falling into sin. Help the house of Islam get stronger.
Our intention is to encourage poor muslims do small scale business units. We are already providing small scale fundings (upto Rs. 10,000/-) and helping them do small businesses. InshaAllah we will help them further in expansion after seeing their performance. We are in no way trying to show cause our makeup goodness to non-muslims. Our intention is to do good activity for the sake of Allah, it will surely have good impact on others inshaAllah
