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)

Islam encourages us all to strive for knowledge. The Holy Quran commands its followers to think, contemplate and gain knowledge that brings them closer to Allah the Almighty and His creation. 

To make certain this key concept of gaining wisdom and knowledge is truly embedded in the consciousness of its followers, the Holy Quran has emphasised its importance repeatedly. The very first revelation to the Holy Prophetsa was: 

“Convey thou in the name of thy Lord Who created. Created man from a clot of blood. Convey! And thy Lord is Most Generous, who taught [man]by the pen, Taught man what he knew not.” (Surah al-Alaq, Ch.96: V.2-6)

The Holy Prophetsa said it was the duty of every Muslim man and woman to acquire knowledge. (Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal)

Many branches of modern knowledge in science, mathematics, philosophy and other secular fields were pioneered by outstanding Muslim thinkers – Western science stands on the shoulders of great Muslim scientists.

The Promised Messiahas had prophesied that people of his community would excel in fields of knowledge too.

Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa has counselled students to seek knowledge with dignity and equanimity and to be respectful towards those from whom knowledge is sought. (Friday Sermon, 18 June 2004)
