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 recent gathering of world powers in Berlin aimed to discuss how to put a permanent end to the conflict in Libya, stitch the country’s fragmented patchwork of security and governance back together, and put the oil-rich country on a path toward stability.

The United States, United Kingdom, France, China, Russia, Italy, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates were among those who sent envoys to the second Berlin conference on Libya in 18 months. They were joined this time by Libya’s newly formed and internationally recognised Government of National Unity, led by the prime minister, Hamid Dbeibah.

His caretaker team, which became Libya’s official authority in March, is overseeing the country’s affairs until national elections in December that are meant to empower a new government with a popular mandate.
