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)

Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz yesterday dismissed the chief of special affairs Nasser Al-Nafisi from his position, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

SPA said the king replaced Al-Nafisi with Abdulaziz Al-Faisal.

The Saudi king also ordered the appointment of Majed Bin Muhammad Al Mazyed as Governor of the National Cybersecurity Authority and Badr Bin Abdulrahman Al-Qadi as Deputy Minister of Sports.
