Helping emotionally and financially is not important merely, what’s important is to help them become a useful member of the society. Instead of leading whole life dependently, they themselves should become a helping hand for others for bringing deprived ones out of the catastrophes. Secondly, one should always help others in a way without compromising their integrity and self-respect.Rumah Aman is an orphanage Malaysia based organization committed to help children to become useful society members. The organization provides education, food and shelter to the orphans.
Quality education is the main focus of Rumah Aman for the children. This is the basis why Rumah Aman enrolled children from the age of three to six years old into the orphanage and welfare home. Rumah Aman’s education programme is a continuous learning of life skills based on Al-Quran and Sunnah and also integrated with the knowledge of the time. Presently it manages the Rumah Aman Orphanage and Welfare Home which is a registered body with the Welfare Department of Malaysia since March 2006.
It operates the orphanage through donations, zakat and entrusted by public. The amount of financial contributions and donations can be applicable for tax exemption by the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia. The foundation is also affiliated with Our Home: Rumah Aman, a charity organisation registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales in the year 2004.Vision:To promote peace and fulfillment in the lives of the children and people who have deprived of a normal living environment due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances. We base our vision upon the Quran and the Sunnah.Mission:To introduce and propagate the strict non-ethnic, non-racial, non-profit work and vision of the charity for a sustainable world in peace. we are aim to carry out this mission by establishing first class facilities to provide care, security, joy, education and life-enriching assistance to the children and the needy in our care.Based on the vision statement, Rumah Aman runs the operation of these orphans home based on Islamic law which through the holy Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad. In Islam, to help the needy people do not have to see the status, religion and race of a person or a community. What is important is the sincere intentions to help people in distress and who are most in need of help and protection. Based on the mission statement, Rumah Aman is an organization responsible for the care of orphans and underprivileged children to bring these children into successful human beings and able to encourage them to help others out there someday. Rumah Aman is not a new organization but has long been operating and is among the successful welfare homes and has produced many successful children under the care of Rumah Aman.In realizing their dream of carrying out this children’s shelter, Rumah Aman certainly only uses their money and funds earned without any profit. Every facility provided for the protection and education of children here is well-kept. Rumah Aman is an organization that seeks to safeguard the welfare of children who take refuge there and form successful children.This continuous learning is for all who are with Rumah Aman whether permanent staffs or volunteers because they will be the role models for the children to follow as the maxim goes. This pattern of learning is paramount because only then the children will have a strong foundation in the Deen of Islam as well as a basis for them to be victorious in this world and in the Hereafter. The education programme of Rumah Aman is called I-SMART. The I-SMART inculcates values based on the Islamic teachings of Iman, Solat, Muhasabah, Accountabilty, Responsibility and Taqwa as living skills for the children under its care and becomes a reference guide to the teachers, staffs and volunteers who are involved with Rumah Aman. It is hoped that with these living skills, the children will grow and mature into adults who has fear and love of Allah and Rasul so that they will have the goodness of this world and victory in the Hereafter. The I-SMART gives priority to teaching good courteous behaviour within the ambit of ibadah and social behaviour and with that patterning, instil good character and strong personalities so that they may later serve society in the best of their abilities for the pleasure of Allah. IMAN As stated in the Pillars of Iman, is the believe in Allah, in the Prophets, in the Angels, in the Kitabs (Books), in Qada and Qadar and in the Day of Judgement. It also teaches the Muslims about the ghaib (unseen world) and of taqwa.SOLAT The pillar of Ibadah and the reference for good behaviour. Making wudhu’ is a practice of being clean always and a reminder of preferred order. With solat comes the remembrance of Allah the discipline of keeping time and the importance to lead and to follow with correct knowledge.MUHASABAH Is the practice of correcting oneself continuously and consistently as man is not perfect by taking on the behaviour of the Rasul and guidance from the Quran.ACCOUNTABILITY Is the preferred right actions with Allah and with mankind. All actions either right or wrong have a cause and effect that will be attributed to the doer; therefore the doer must have a clear mind and clear understanding of his/her intentions and actions.RESPONSIBILITY Is the awareness that man is the Khalifah of Allah. Man is using borrowed attributes of Allah therefore all decisions and actions which impinge on the lives of all living creatures must be for the pleasure of Allah and within His guided parameters.TAQWA Awe or fear of Allah which inspires a person to be on guard against wrong actions and eager for actions which pleases Him. The orphanage not only facilitates the deprived children but also helps the needy on a case to case basis. Helping such children is not the responsibility of one individual or of an organisation, each one of us is equally responsible. There are multiple ideas for you to assist and support the orphanage such as children’s clothing, personal hygiene products, medical supplies, bedding, stationary, provide financial support and humanitarian aid, academic opportunities and life training skills mentoring a child and help the organisation to raise funds by working on voluntarily basis.
