Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)


The Arab Council, a human rights body, yesterday called on the international community and rights groups to help stop the implementation of death penalties against 12 Muslim Brotherhood members upheld by the Egyptian judiciary early this week.

In a statement, the Arab Council, chaired by former Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki, denounced the “shocking rulings” by the judiciary against the Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

Egypt’s highest civilian court on Monday upheld the death sentences of 12 Muslim Brotherhood members, including senior leaders Mohamed Al-Beltagy, Safwat Hegazy, Abdel-Rahman el-Bar, Osama Yassin and Ahmed Aref.

On 14 August 2013, the army and police violently dispersed two pro-democracy sit-ins held by supporters of late Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo. Nearly 1,000 people were killed as a result, according to human rights groups.
