Ramadan Mubarak from the National Association of Muslim Lawyers!
Asalaamu alaykum NAML Members and Supporters,
On behalf of the entire NAML executive board, Ramadan mubarak! We pray that Allah grants you and your families a safe and successful month of worship.
As you know, none of us have ever experienced Ramadan under these unique and tragic circumstances. Tens of thousands of people around the world have lost their lives, hundreds of thousands have fallen ill, and millions more have struggled to pay their bills, feed their families, and otherwise survive the pandemic.
This Ramadan, we encourage all NAML members to not only worship God by fasting, giving in charity, and performing taraweh prayers--but also by using your unique legal expertise to help those impacted by the pandemic.
Perhaps a cash-strapped family needs your help to avoid eviction in a state that has not taken steps to protect tenants. Perhaps someone needs to ask you questions about how President Trump's latest immigration order might impact their family. Or perhaps a local non-profit needs your help getting out of a costly event contract without penalty.
If you see a chance to use your legal expertise or connections to help someone this Ramadan pro bono, we encourage you to do so, insha Allah. Please always feel free to reach out to the NAML executive board, or your fellow NAML members, if we can be of assistance in these or other situations.
May Allah grant all of us a safe and successful Ramadan. May Allah guide us to use the knowledge He has given us to help those in need. And may Allah allow all of us to reunite soon.
