Manchester Muslim Cyclists Raise Funds for Palestine

0 8

Two Muslim cyclists will be cycling across Manchester on Saturday, June 5, as part of their campaign to raise awareness and funds for Palestinians affected by the latest Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

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)

Known as the “2 Muslim Night Riders”, Noor Alam, 36, and Ahtsham Arfan, 41, joined forces with Dabbagh Welfare Trust (DWT) to champion the Palestinian cause, Asian Image reported.

The duo hope their ride will raise awareness about the plight of the Palestinian people.

“We decided to start exercising when the lockdown began – for weight loss and to get fit. We opted to go on night bike rides as we are busy with family and work during the day,” Ahtsham, who has worked as a teacher and is presently a civil servant said.

“Our city is very peaceful and beautiful at night and is actually very safe, but we ride through familiar areas and avoid alleyways and dark places just in case.”
