May Allah forgive me but me and my children were hungry tonight and we had no clue where food was going to come from and so I decided the best thing to do was to go to the store and ask the manager if I could have a few things to feed my family. He looked at me totally disgusted and replied,"what?!" (as though he didn't hear me)he stuttered,"I can't do that,are you on crack?"he asked, upset. That pissed me off and I walked away from him because I did not want to punch him in the mouth. And as I walked away i said ,"I'm taking a couple of things to feed my children,if you don't like it have a cop by the door when I'm done!" Needless to say, he watched as I walked out the store with a gallon of milk,a loaf of bread and a dozen eggs. Was I wrong?

Assallamualikum whwty Dear brother Saiquan, We as a muslim should NOT ask alm ... that is the last thing to do when we in such desperately. In the hadith ... our beloved Prophet Muhammad did narated ... Giving hand is better than the accepting hand ... If we really desperate ... we should ask alm from our muslim brothers ... any ISLAMIC body ... they should help us. Islam teaching, always ask us to work hard in this `Fana' (temperory) world and to achive greatness, wealth, iman, takwa, and etc. We ISLAM have our pride ... in such pride to be a truthfull islam ... work hard, pray hard to ALLAH AM ... seek sakinah (calmness) ... love rasulullah ... done good deeds in sense of ALLAH AW redha. To be a truthfull muslim is hard in this `Fana' world ... this is a test ground ... for all of MUSLIM ... But we should proud to be a truthfull muslim .. we are among the choosen by ALLAH AM ... lucky to be muslim ... even luckiest if we really practice islam ... lillahitaalla. Islam is complete religion teaching ... for human kind .. never the less is the teaching begining from adam as until final rasullullah ... Do hardwork ... in this life ... be a truthfull muslim Wassallam ... Your's Suardin Hj.Ali

if you havent done so yet, i would say go back to the shop,if you have funds, return what you owe and apologise to the shop manager for taking such action and also ask allah for forgivness... inshallah allah will not put you in such a situation again - have faith and intension to do gd deeds and remember the hardship we go through is test from allah.

This is a very sad story.Please inform the Muslims around you.It is our duty as Muslims to help each other. I will do the best i can to help you. May Allah open up doors for you. Sammy, Salam,

I am very sad to hear that you needed to do that, is there nowone you could go to for help in such times? What you must try to remember is that Allah always provides and that this life is a test brother, inshallah your family will one day manage better. As for the moral dilemma, you offered the shop keeper to help you and he refused for whatever reason, I think that providing for you kids by whatever means necessary could never be deemed immoral. May Allah bless you and your family.

One should ask a family, friend or neighbour at times of need.

that's really a tough situation you're in saiquan. i'm no stranger to this sort of situation myself and i understand how you feel. taking things that are not yours is never a good thing but God was on your side in this instance. i hope you don't forget to return what you took from the store when times are better. stay strong.

take things without permission is wrong. I'm certain you don't want to set a bad example for your children. However, the manager has an obligation to set an example for his children and his. Number one, you were honest and forthcoming about your situation, when you approached the manager. Clearly, you were not on "crack". No crack is remotely concerned about their children. Had you been on crack, you would have taken the items without even speaking to the manager. Number two; You told the manager what you were going to do, and what he could do if he did not comply with your "humble" request. The fact that you were not arrested (because the manager did not contact law enforcement)shows that God was on your side. But please do not tempt the lord thy God. (smile) The Mosques are there for you in your time of need. Fellowship is more than just prayer. It's staying contact with those who may need your help, and those who can be of service to you. Peace Be Unto You Teeo
