Oxford Central Mosque to Hand Out Hot Meals in Ramadan

0 7

Charity in Ramadan is a spiritual staple of the Islamic holy month. However, offering charity in Ramadan while going through a global pandemic looks a bit different.

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)

In Oxford, a local mosque has set a new goal to deliver hot meals to the needy during the holy month of fasting.

For weeks, volunteers from the Central Mosque in Oxford have been giving out meals and other essential data-x-items to residents in need once in a week.

From Monday, April 12, one day before Ramadan, and till the end of the holy month, volunteers will be giving free food every day.

“We are very lucky to have congregation members such as our caterer who provides all of the hot meals every week and local companies such as clickit/247 who donated all of the essential data-x-items and provided fresh meat for the last few weeks.”
