Help Flood Victims - Little as 50p for Food
One of the most widespread and dangerous problems faced by humanity is that of poverty, hunger and starvation. There is nothing more horrifying than the realization that as we live our happy lives here, millions of our fellow human beings live in hunger and face starvation. The majority of the world population today lives in poverty. It is clear that the world system we have set up today is unjust and inhumane. One of the great reforms that the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) brought was the rights and treatment of the poor. Feed flood victims little as 50p for food parcel. Build their houses, supply food parcels and fresh water - Every year over thousands of orphans, widows, aged, disabled and most needy rely on us for support. But most of all, they rely on us to show them that someone cares.
Benefits of Helping Flood Victims
Allah said, 'O son of Adam! Spend, and I shall spend on you.Sahih Al-Bukhari
The one who looks after a widow or a poor person is like a Mujahid (warrior) who fights for Allah's Cause, or like him who performs prayers all the night and fasts all the day.Sahih Al-Bukhari
The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient.Sahih Al-Bukhari
