Aqiqahsingapura.com is the official Myanmar partner of Hezom International Pte Ltd, Singapore. Since 2014, we have performed over a hundred Aqiqah, Qurban, and Nazar services for the Muslim community in Singapore, many of them being repeat customers. Alhamdulillah, we have successfully channelled the cooked meat of Aqiqah, Qurban and the raw meat of Nazar to deserving Madrasah students as well as our Muslim brothers and sisters in the upper part of Myanmar.
In Myanmar, Muslims face many challenges, not only in practising the religion but also in their daily lives and the provision of basic needs. Among these basic needs are food and education. Most young Muslim adults in this country, including many orphans, receive their education in Madrasahs. A notable fact about Myanmar’s Muslim Madrasahs and Islamic schools is that the school admission, tuition and boarding fees are all borne by the school, through the financial assistance of benefactors. However, with rising cost and financial constraints, most Madrasahs struggle to keep up with this tradition, resulting in poor food provision for the students. By providing Madrasahs with meat—through Aqiqah, Nazar, Qurban—it helps to lessen the financial burden on these schools and allow them to focus their resources on the development of the students.
Apart from providing them with the necessary nutrients, these daily meals enable the students to better concentrate and focus on completing their Islamic studies, producing a steady pool of asatizahs for Myanmar who can then give back to the community.
One of the schools that has benefit from this is the famous Islamic University, Mazarhirul Ulum, whereby 400 students are currently taking their Islamic education.
Additionally, there are many Muslim families who are unable to afford meat in their meals. The provision of meat from these services, helps to improve the quality of their daily meals, providing them with the basic nutrients for a healthier life, especially for those with growing children and the elderlies. These families are carefully chosen by us, ensuring that the meat goes to those that need them most.
