FEED THE POOR

“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)

“We look forward to celebrating world peace as local interfaith leaders gather for the 17th annual interfaith prayer service!” Naperville Interfaith website said.
