Covid has affected my finances very bad -Help me pay my rent so that my family stays under a roof
Zakat Eligible: Yes
Assalamu alaikum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barkatuhu. I am Hakeem K. Abdullah Khan from Vellore, Tamil Nadu aged 55.
I' am a Herbal Medicine practitioner and I live in a rented house with my old and ailing mother, my wife, 1 son and 2 daughters
. My son is working as a Hardware technician and supports the family and my 2 daughters have recently joined an Engg. College with the assistance of a few kind donors, Alhamdulillah!
I lost my livelihood because of the #COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown. Since the past 9 months from April-Dec, due to the lockdown, I have not been able to pay the rent of the house. In between, I borrowed and paid rent of 2 months so that I' am not asked to vacate the house. However, now the rent of the house has piled up for 10 months and if I don't pay it soon, I will have to vacate it along with my old mother and family and look for another house. The rent per month is Rs. 6500/- and the total amount till March 2021 would be Rs. 65,000/-for 10 months
, by which time I hope I am able to revive my Herbal Medicine practice inshaAllah! The house owner is pressurising me to pay the pending rent soon..so I request you all to kindly help me to pay the rent of 10 months to free me from this serious problem
May Almighty Allah bless you with the very best in this World and Aakhirah. Aameen! Jazakallahu Khayran!
