A message from one of the revert women we helped together: 

“Being a revert I face many problems with day-to-day life both spiritually and socially, but Solace came to my escape when I was at my lowest. They guided me in every way possible to make my life easier. And they made me more close to Allah by showing me the right path. Thank you soo much Solaces for all your help and support.” 

We truly wouldn’t be able to do this work without you. 

We ask Allah to reward you with much abundance and goodness in this life and the hereafter.
