In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
107.1] Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie?
[107.2] That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness,
[107.3] And does not urge (others) to feed the poor.
Hope you are in the best state of health and imaan. Insya'allah.
I do agree with you sister. It's a wonderful gesture helping people who are of lesser priviledge than us.
Here we are sitting comfortably in our fully furnished home with all the high tech gadgets like air-conditioning, television and state-of the art stereo systems while there are people out there in the cold without proper shelter, having not enough to eat. Thus, we should try to help in the best way we can.
Just like a MasterCard advertisement..
A diamond ring from Tiffany's $10000
Nice meal at expensive restaurant $700
Bag from Chanel $3000
A smile on the face of a poor person receiving aid and a piece of bread........ PRICELESS!
May Allah guide us to use our wealth to help mankind in the best possible way we can. Ameen.
