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)

A Toronto-based Muslim group is urging its members to remain vigilant and “take all precautions necessary” after four pedestrians were killed in a hit-and-run incident police are treating as an anti-Islamic hate crime.

The driver of a truck struck five people, killing four and injuring another seriously, in London, Ont., on Sunday.

London police, who say they believe it was an intentional act and that the victims were targeted because of their Islamic faith, are consulting with the RCMP about potential terrorism charges.

Nathaniel Veltman, 20, has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one charge of attempted murder.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada said in a statement that it is “shocked and distraught” to learn of the attack in London.

“We are utterly devastated and heartbroken to learn of this hate-motivated and senseless attack on an innocent family,” said the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada’s national president, Lal Khan Malik. “There must be no place for hate and intolerance in Canada and our deepest thoughts and prayers are for the victims and their family.”
