Islamic Relief Stats at a Glance
Little Shahzeb is only six years old, living in Rawalpindi amidst the narrow streets of a slum. His home is a dark concrete box. No carpet, no running water, no heat. The kitchen is a small gas canister in the corner, a few bricks with a pot on it. When it rains heavily the gutters overflow and faeces rushes into his house, leaving him vulnerable to diseases. To add to his problems, he is an orphan. His father died four years ago from tuberculosis, leaving him and his five sisters with only their mother, Gulshan, to provide for them. His face holds a lost look – this is his life.

When we have done our part and tied our camel, we must leave the rest up to Allah. Tie your camel and have tawakkul. “Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” [Qur’an, 2:153]
