For victims of violence in Aleppo, South Sudan, South Side Chicago, and everywhere, Zakat Foundation of America has launched the 100 Prayers for the Oppressed campaign. We are urging individuals and communities around the world to collectively call upon the All Merciful by reciting a centuries-old powerful plea written by Imam Muhammad ibn Nasir Al-Dari’ to end cycles of violence. A prayer so powerful that tyrants had banned its recitation. A prayer that our ailing world needs today!
Here is how You can Help Us Reach 100 Prayers for the Oppressed:
Step 1 Download the full prayer here
Step 2 Recite the Prayer. We encourage individual recitations, as well as school and community group recitations.
Step 3 Let us know at [email protected] so we can count your prayer toward this global effort!
Your email can simply say, “I prayed for the Oppressed!” You can also include a personal comment or photo of your Prayer event (Optional), and we will post it on Facebook to encourage others.
