0 2

A local London mosque has donated hot food and snacks to Whittington Hospital and vaccination centers to “lift spirits” and show its gratitude to NHS workers.

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)

“Being from the BAME community there’s been a lot of people in hospital who we know or families that have been looked after by people who have died from the virus,” Bibi Khan, president of Wightman Road Mosque, told Ham & High.

“So it’s really important that we acknowledge the work that they are doing in really trying and emotive times.”

According to Khan, the donations were part of a message of appreciation to support NHS staff and lift their spirits.  

“One way that we could show to the NHS staff was to say ‘listen we’re here’, the community is here and we want to be able to support you,” he said.
