Imam Jaf’ar Sadiq (a.s):”He who arranges for a single person to get married
will be amongst those whom Allah (s.w.t) will regard (with mercy) on the Day of
Resurrection”. (Ref: Al Kafi,vol5,pg 331. No.2).
Tohfah-E-Zehra (s.a), is a secondary project handled by the volunteers of
Zawwar-E-Masoomeen (a.s) This project tries to provide help to our community
girls getting married. The project was started up in Mahe Rajab (year 2009). The
need of starting this project was felt because in course of our inquiries and
visiting houses, we found that there are many orphan girls in our community.
Secondly we came across many husband abandoned cases where the father leaves the
wife and children. We have seen their daughters getting married and we were very
sad to see their condition in marriages.
also came across families where the father is a plumber, carpenter, auto driver
where the family income would be Rs 5000 monthly , and they stay in a rented
house. The house rent comes upto Rs 3000 monthly. The father hardly has anything
left to save money. So it is very difficult to manage things and marriage still
is a very big social evil. Also there are some families where the father due to
his illness is not able to work example paralysis. The ladies of the houses do
washing clothes, cleaning utensils and stitching work for their daily bread.
Other than this, the concept of marriage is a big issue for these people.
Having no income or a limited income and having 2-4 daughters in a family
becomes a matter of a serious issue for the parent.
we, thought to gift them a small memento so that we can get some smile on their
faces and relieve the parent a little bit. With this intention we started this
project called Tohfah-E-Zehra (s.a).
Tohfah-E-Zehra (s.a), covers orphan girls, husband abandoned families, families
where the father is earning a very less staying in rented house having more
children and also families where the father is bed ridden or inability to work
on account of illness such as paralysis.
Total number of marriages since inception more than 500 marriages.
the Grace of Allah and with the blessings of Masoomeen (a.s) we have managed to
facilitate a lot of marriages since inception of Tohfah-E-Zehra (s.a) and we are
getting more and more requests from momeneens and we are trying to help them
