Link Love: 'Blessed Brides', help pay for someone else's wedding

In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ Peace be with you السلام عليكم

In April 2008, Ummah Welfare Trust (UWT) initiated a project to fund wedding days for people in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh who do not have the financial means to pay for a wedding. Their aim with this project is to ask for both financial donations and bridal gowns which can be sent to anyone who cannot otherwise afford a bridal dress for their big day.

Members of UWT have identified regions where assistance is most needed and Blessed Brides works closely with UWT to verify the extent of need for each case. If financial need is greater then Blessed Brides works to sell your bridal dress to specifically fund the wedding. Otherwise the bridal dress will be presented to the bride. Ultimately you will have contributed towards the completion of a successful wedding.

Furthermore Blessed Brides encourages the new bride to share the blessings and pass on dresses to others in need. In this case, your donation could be making not one, but many dreams come true!

The Messenger of Allah (sall'Allahu alayhi wa'sallam) said: "None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself." [al-Bukhari & Muslim]

We all have things we want. We want the perfect wedding day, the perfect dress and everything to go with it. In most cases, we are lucky to get all of those 'wants'. However, there are others who do not even have the means for a simple wedding. So why not share your blessings, and help yourself by helping others. None of us can account for spending lavish amounts for that one special day, but why not share some of the blessings that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala has bestowed upon you with those that are less fortunate, instead of stowing away those thousand pound dresses for sentimental value.

The ethics and code of Blessed Brides practice comply with Islamic law. The brothers and sisters they help conduct their weddings according to the Shariah, and therefore have segregated ceremonies.

(This project is in association with Ummah Welfare Trust [UWT] a registered UK international relief and development charity ( UWT aims to relieve the suffering of the poor and alleviate poverty across the world. We are fully committed to a 100% donations policy.)
