Praise be to Allah, and I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone with no

partner and I testify that the Prophet Muhammad Abd Allah and His Messenger, peace

be upon him and his family and companions and after...

Our beloved country remains in the forefront of humanitarian and charity initiatives

with the multitude of charitable projects being carried out by various organizations

and charitable institutions. These organizations are following the wise and noble route

of Their Highnesses Rulers of the Emirates, led by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin

Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi and His Highness

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister

and Ruler of Dubai, May the Almighty protect and save them.

Our decision to establish the Easa Saleh Al Gurg Charity Foundation in 2010 was to

follow and continue the mission started by our wise rulers to help ease the suffering

of those in need and fill a need destitute. This is also in keeping with the vision of true

Islam which preaches compassion and solidarity. Prophet Mohammed the Messenger

of Allah (Peace Be upon Him) said: «A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he

should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever ful-

fills the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brings his (Muslim)

brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts on the Day of

Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of

Resurrection”

I urge you on behalf of the poor and needy, to learn about their helplessness and their

needs and to assist them as long as you can, Let me conclude with a verse from the

Holy Quran «By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give (freely) of

that which you love; and whatever you give, of a truth Allah knows it well»

Al-Imran (92).

Praise be to Allah who has said in the Holy Book «He that does good shall have ten

times as much to his credit…» Al-An’am (160)

Welcome once again to the latest edition of the annual report of the Easa Saleh Al

Gurg Charity Foundation, we are blessed to have the opportunity to help and support

those who knock at our door. This report provides a brief overview of the Foundation’s

charitable projects and programs during the year of 2014. This includes contributions

to the building of mosques, care and support for education, care and support for peo-

ple with special needs, medical and therapeutic care, support for Islamic centers, care

and support for mass weddings, Ramadan aid and many others.

Al Gurg Charity Foundation spends its own resources from charitable Waqf and Zakat

revenues. We work as much as possible to allocate these revenues optimally, and my

dear father, (May the Almighty bless him with long life) has always supported the or-

ganization to meet its obligations to deserving individuals, associations and charities

that receive support from the Foundation each year.

Finally, I wish to express my thanks and appreciation to all those who have partnered

with us in these charitable initiatives and I humbly pray that the Almighty to accept all

our efforts and good intentions.
