Name of Organisation
Al-Imdaad Foundation has been named after Hadhrat Haji Imdadullah Muhajir Makki (Rahmatullahi Alayhi). His personality was well respected by the Ulama of the sub-continent India and Pakistan and also by the Arab Ulama. That is why his title was also Sheikhul Arab wa Ajam (the leader of the Arabs and non-Arabs). Haji Sahib passed away in 1317 AH (1896 AD) at the ripe old age of 84. In his inheritance he had one stick, two sets of winter clothes and two sets of summer clothes. Haji Sahib is buried in Makkah Mukarramah in Jannatul-Maala.
