Chicago Mosque Plans Free Coat Giveaway

0 3

Helping homeless and rough sleepers to survive harsh winter, a Chicago Muslim group will be holding its free coat giveaway next week.

FEED THE POOR

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)

Planned for February 27, free coats, food, and masks will be given at Mosque Maryam in Chicago. The event comes as part of the group’s annual convention and celebration.

“This year, in 2021, we have provided complete furniture for three families apartments for free,” Eugene Khaan, who facilitates Muhammad’s Food Pantry, told The Final Call.

“And last year’s coat event we provided 500 brand new coats to battered women shelters, homeless families, Chicago Public School students and others in need,” he added.
