Hijabi Doctor Features on Stamps Issued to Honor Aussie Frontline Workers

0 4

Australia Post has released a new set of stamps honoring people who have continued to serve and protect their fellow Australians in the face of the global pandemic.


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)

One of the stamps illustrated a hijabi healthcare worker.

“These brave individuals have been saviors to us all through the last 12 months, caring for our most vulnerable and helping us cope with the many impacts of COVID-19,” Australia Post executive general manager, Nicole Sheffield, said, Canberra Weekly reported.

“Healthcare workers have tested millions, Australian Defense Force and the police services have helped monitor our borders and quarantine arrangements, and educators have been quick to adapt to online learning.

“Our posties, delivery drivers and supermarket staff have kept businesses running and provided access to essential products and services, and we thank them together with all Australians for their continued efforts.”
