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)

King Mohammed VI has condemned the despicable terror attack that targeted lately a mining company convoy in Burkina Faso, leaving nearly 40 dead.

In a message sent to President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré of Burkina Faso, the Monarch strongly denounced this appalling attack and offered him his heartfelt condolences, expressing his sympathy to the grieving families of the victims and voicing his solidarity with the Burkinabe people.

Five buses carrying workers of the Canadian goldminer Semafo with military escort were ambushed lately on their way to Boungou mine in the eastern region of the country.

Burkina Faso has been wracked by an Islamist insurgency that has killed hundreds of people in recent years. The military and authorities are struggling to contain violence that spilled over the border from neighboring Mali.
