In recognition of their efforts over the past long months of pandemic, a Muslim nurse has teamed up with UK charities and organizations to give away packets to help Muslim healthcare workers during Ramadan.

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)

Nurse Yusra, medical professional and Instagram blogger, teamed up with various UK based organizations and businesses, including the charity Islamic Relief UK, to deliver gifts to various Muslim healthcare professionals for Ramadan.

The blogger, who has been volunteering for Islamic Relief UK for several years, is known for running online initiatives which bring underrepresented healthcare professionals together.

“I’m delighted that so many organizations, including Islamic Relief UK, have jumped at the opportunity to support Muslim healthcare workers,” nurse Yusra said of the ‘Chains of Charity’ campaign, In Your Area reported.

“As Muslims in healthcare, we often feel under-represented. Like myself, there are individuals who have experienced negativity on shifts due to the color of our skin, what we wear (hijab) and our beliefs – my Instagram and this initiative are about uniting these individuals, our Muslim community, who might otherwise feel isolated being the only Muslim on their ward/workplace”.
