The first 72 hours after the loss of a child can be the most painful and confusing for a parent. Despite this fact, this is the time when support and guidance is lacking the most. Through links to hospitals and hospices, Children of Jannah want to equip as many parents with the Children of Jannah Bereavement Support Pack.Here’s what Children of Jannah parents said when they received their Bereavement Support Packs:”The Children of Jannah Bereavement Support Pack has helped me to come to terms with the loss of my son. It’s exactly the comfort any grieving parent needs and, what’s even better, it’s backed up with the Qur’an & Hadith. Everyone deals differently with death and, so, the box can be opened as and when the time is right for you. The literature provided says everything family or friends want to say at times like these, and can be re-read whenever the need arises.””Journeying through the box helped me move on and accept that death is a part of life that we all must face at some point in our lives; it offered me the light of the Qur’an & Sunnah, and undoubtedly, I would recommend this to anyone who has suffered child loss. It has everything you need, and more, masha Allah, and it is an initiative worthy of our support.”One pack costs just £20 plus postage and packaging. Just £20 could be what gets a parent through this first few days!You could be the one who gives parents a guiding hand through some of their most difficult moments and through our links with hospices and hospitals we will make sure it gets to those who are in desperate need of our help.On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who said,”Whoever relieves a believer’s distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter.”[Recorded in Muslim]For more information of the information pack and what it includes please visit our shop.Donate to this causeThis link will take you to JustGiving
Anwar Balousha from Gaza lost his five daughters in one single night. Whilst they all slept together in the room next door to the mosque they were all killed. In an interview the father, weeping, said, “They grow up day after day and night after night. Within a second, I have lost them”.How can we ignore the pain and suffering of this father? Prophet Muhammad (please be upon him) said: “The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.” [Recorded in Muslim, 6258] Our love for our brothers and sisters only motivates us to want to do whatever we can to help.This kind of loss in a regular setting is heart-breaking, but in the context of a war-torn country where life has already been turned upside down, the aching and emptiness of the grieving families is just unimaginable. Our focus on aid to these countries tends to be on medicines and food, and the psychological well-being of people experiencing loss after loss after loss is neglected. In countries such as Palestine where conflict is reoccurring, generations go by without receiving the emotional and psychological support they need to cope with their grief.Children of Jannah understand how devastating the loss of a child can be, regardless of the circumstances, and we want to ensure all parents get the helping hand they need throughout their grief. That’s why we have translated Sorrow to Serenity into Arabic with the aim of providing bereaved parents in war-torn countries, including Palestine and Syria, with some relief and support. We hope that this small but comforting book will ease the burden of parents and help them muster the strength they need to face the harsh realities of war throughout their grief.By donating just £4, you can send a copy of Sorrow to Serenity to parents suffering through the difficulties of war. A book will not only help the recipient, but can go on to help others in the community affected by similar types of loss.

Imagine it’s a month since your child has died and you are home thinking about everything. You don’t like to burden anyone with your struggles and emotions on that day. Then you remember your counselling session planned for later in the day. Suddenly the day seems a bit easier knowing there will be someone who you can talk to about everything just few hours later. We at Children of Jannah know how vital support from trained professionals can be after the loss of a child – whether immediately, several months or even several years later.That is why we are asking for your support in raising the funds to provide counselling services for the families or individuals who need it the most. Without you help, these people may never get the crucial support and help that they need.Through your generous donations, we will be able to offer counselling carried out by trained professionals to bereaved parents at subsidised costs. A training session costs approximately £30 for an hour. This is a lifeline for so many people so please donate generously.Donate to this causeThis link will take you to JustGiving
