regret to inform you that we have received word of the
passing of Sr. Muneera Afifa.
Sr. Muneera was an outstanding activist in the Muslim community. She played a unique role in the development of the Islamic-American Zakat Foundation. Seventeen years ago, as a Volunteer Maryland volunteer she designed the MEDINA program which ever since became central to our operations. Through this program we have gone beyond providing band-aids of financial assistance to helping applicants address the deep needs behind their financial problems and formulate plans for self-sufficiency.
We ask you to join us in praying that Allah will forgive her her sins and grant her paradise. "To Allah we belong and to Him we return."
