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)

“Zakat is now a lifeline for UK Muslims as many struggle to gain the right monetary support elsewhere,” Mahboob Hussain, head of marketing communications at National Zakat Foundation, The Mail reported.

“The generosity of Muslims in the past 12 months has exceeded our expectations and it’s incredible to see how Zakat is transforming lives and making a difference.”
