London Mosque Donates Thousands of Iftar Meals to Needy, NHS Workers

0 4

It is customary for millions of Muslims to welcome the fasting month of Ramadan with big gatherings to break their fast.


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)

For the second year, this is quite difficult due to the coronavirus pandemic which has forced Muslims to cancel large celebratory meals and community iftars.

With a determination to serve others, London’s busiest mosque will provide thousands of iftar meals to those in need and NHS workers during Ramadan.

The free meals came as the mosque cancelled its big iftar events for the second year.

“One of the big things we do at the mosque every year is feed several hundred people who come and have iftar,” said Khizar Mohammad, media and communications manager at the East London Mosque & London Muslim Center, Arab News reported.

“However, government guidelines currently permit religious institutions to open for prayer only and therefore we can’t host the iftar.”

The meals, each costing £3, will be distributed to frontline workers at the nearby Royal London Hospital and local people in need.

“We have an appeal every year and anyone who wants to feed the hungry will donate,” Mohammad said.
