An Indonesian minister has called for a fatwa, or religious edict, requiring the rich to marry the poor to reduce inequality.

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)

“What happens is the poor marry the poor and they create more poor families,” Indonesian Minister of Human Development and Culture Muhadjir Effendy was quoted as saying by the news portal Tempo.co.
