2018 Challenge

Raise • Climb • Conquer

The Makka Twin Peaks Challenge

Your challenge is to trek up Mount Noor and Thawr (Makka, Saudi Arabia) and raise money for Islamic education. Mount Noor is where Cave Hira is located and it is in this cave the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ first received revelation. Mount Thawr is said to be where the Prophet and Abu Bakr (ra) took shelter during the Hijrah. It takes about two hours to complete the trek of Mount Noor and, if you choose to carry on, anything up to 4 hours for Mount Thawr.

The Cause

You will create a legacy for your akhira by raise money for one of the most important institutions of the Muslim community, Ebrahim College. Through the support of people like you: students, donors and Makkah Twin Peakers, EC is a thriving beacon of Islamic learning. You will become the means to people studying Qur’an and sunnah, reconnecting with their deen, and safeguarding their iman.
EC’s donors over the years have helped us produce tomorrow’s imams, scholars and leaders and reach over 25000 seekers of knowledge. You can help us reach another 50,000. Find out more about EC and its campaign for world class Islamic education here.

You will be able to set up an online fundraising page to send to all of your contacts. We also have a fundraising pack that you can use for anyone you would like to speak to directly. Makka Twin Peakers have raised thousands in the past, you will do too inshaAllah. Just remember, you are not doing this for yourself, you are doing it for Allah (swt). So no reason to hesitate.

For details on fundraising, go to EC’s dedicated fundraising page here.

Abu Huraira (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying, “ًWhen the son of Adam dies, his deeds discontinue except three things: (1) Sadaqah jariyah (any legacy that continues to benefit people like an endowment that pays for a school, madrasah, hospital, etc); (2) knowledge which people benefit from (like a scholar whose teachings, students and books continue to benefit, someone who paid for a scholarship or a publication, or set up a library etc); (3) a pious offspring who prays for him” (Muslim)

Supporting Islamic education is the only way to get all three above benefits at once. Subhanallah!

Perform Umrah

As part of the trip, you will perform Umrah. Otherwise known as the smaller pilgrimage. The virtues of Umrah are many. Not only did the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ specifically mention the virtues of Umrah, he encouraged us to perform Umrah.

You don’t have to worry about anything. You will be invited to our training seminar where we will go through the Umrah rites with you and give you practical advice. You can learn about umrah via our online course, and umrah seminar; and scholars like Shaykh Shams Adduha will be with you throughout the trip guiding you every step of the way. We also have tours in Madina with Shaykh Haseeb Noor.

Don’t forget, if do well in your fundraising, you could go to Umrah for free!
