Young Muslim students in Canterbury, Kent, have walked 500,000 steps in an effort to raise money for Children Breakfast Packs for Canterbury Food bank.

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)

“The Canterbury Muslim Youth Club started mid-January from around 15 of Muslim youth. They wanted to start a fundraiser to help the local charities and Canterbury food bank was asking for donations to buy breakfast food packs to local children in need,” Mohamed Ali Elassal, chairman of Canterbury Mosque, told AboutIslam.net via mail.

“The pack costs £2.5. So, the kids wanted to raise £500 for it and decided to do something compatible with the lockdown guidelines.

“Walking steps was the best idea as you can do it at home or during your once a day outdoor exercise.”
