Well-wishers & the Beneficiaries of United Trust,
Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Alhamdulillah, by the Grace of Almighty Allah, United Group, one of the best known business conglomerates of the country, has grown to a reasonable size over a period of last almost four decades. So to say, this growth was marked with uncompromising quality, ethical practices as well as moral values. Over the years, as many as 30 companies, small and big, have been added to the honor list of United Group.
With the growth of the Group, our responsibility towards our society was also proportionately growing. As Muslims, we must not forget what have been made obligatory on us in holy Quran and Hadit. Allah says: “O you who believe! Spend of the good things which you have (legally) earned, and of that which I have produced from the earth for you, and do not aim at that which is bad to spend from it [Al-Baqarah 2:267]. Al Hadit says: “Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and spend of that whereof He has made you trustees. And such of you as believe and spend (in Allaah’s way), theirs will be a great reward” [al-Hadeed 57:7].
From that conviction, by the grace of Allah, we formed ‘United Trust’, our social welfare wing, in 2010. Now, it gracefully stepped into its 8th year. I am happy to see that it has substantially increased its portfolio and diversified its social development works in the area of rural education, health and sanitation, interest free micro credit program, interest free loan for marginal farmers, old age allowance, vocational training etc. United Group plans to devote reasonably good percentage of its annual profit for this purpose to enable the Trust to make a difference in our rural society in days to come.
It is good to see that, in 2017, it has appreciably grown to extent that demands extension and capacity building of almost all its institutions to meet the growing needs. From the Board of Trustee’s side, we are glad to see the promising growth and happy to increase the trust budget to support its requirements. I convey my heartiest congratulation to the members of the Board of Trustee, Executives and Staffs of United Trust for their selfless dedication.
I also convey my special felicitation to Trust officials for launching their official Website. With this, its activity information crossed its local threshold and stepped into national and international arena. It is indeed a special event. May Allah bestow His peace and blessings upon us all. Ameen.
