Auckland Muslims Plan Parks Clean-up on New Year

0 6

Islam urges Muslims to treat their neighbors in a gentle way that reflects the true and genuine spirit of brotherhood and neighborliness in Islam, as exemplified in its tolerant aspects especially with people of other faiths.


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)

It makes no difference whether the neighbors are Muslims or non-Muslims.

With such beliefs, a group of young Australian Muslims will spend the first hours of the New Year cleaning the parks of Auckland city.

The day would start at 4:00 am after Fajr prayer.

“For Muslims, serving the community is a religious duty. That is why we will be waking up at dawn to clean up after the New Year’s Eve celebrations – we want to start the New Year by fulfilling our responsibilities to our faith and to our society,” says Azeem Zafarullah, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association New Zealand, Scoop NZ reported.

“This is something that the local branches of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association are also doing across the world.”

After Auckland, the group will start the clean-up initiative at Albert Park, Victoria Park and Myers Park at 6:00 am.

Allah has emphasized – rather, commanded – goodness to neighbors in the Qur’an when He said:

Support Islam Religion Guardian
At the present time, we are running on very limited funds. In order for us to run Islam Religion Guardian service efficiently, we are in need of your generous support.

…And do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, the poor, the neighbor who is near (of kin), the neighbor who is a stranger… (Quran 4:36)

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

If anyone is pleased to love Allah and His Messenger, or rather to have Allah and His Messenger love him, he should speak the truth when he tells anything, fulfill his trust when he is put in a position of trust, and be a good neighbor.
