A Perpetual Charity

Our deeds end when we die and leave this World. An exception is perpetual charity (sadaqa-e-jaaria): continuing good works that benefit humanity. Qalam School was established for this very purpose by the children of Almas and Abdul Qadir, who died in February and April 2010, respectively. We, their children, attribute this good act to them, since it is they who brought us up. Please make a prayer for their souls when you read this. Thank you.
