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)

Tens of thousands of British Muslims will meet for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic at the UK’s longest running Islamic convention.

Ahmadi Muslims from across the UK will descend on the 200-acre Oakland Farm in Hampshire between 5-7 August for three days of prayer, discussion and spiritual rejuvenation at the event known as Jalsa Salana.

The event, which is organised by 7,000 volunteers, is put on in less than two weeks and will see solutions offered to some of the biggest global challenges facing the world today.

The aim of the convention is to highlight the true, peaceful teachings of Islam and help attendees better understand the faith.

The highlight of the event will be the attendance of the Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, leader to millions of Ahmadi Muslims across the world.

His Holiness will deliver an address to attendees on each of the three days of the Jalsa, providing insight on key social issues at a time of immense global uncertainty.

His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“A golden principle given by the Founder of Islam (peace and blessings be upon him) is that a true Muslim should like for others, what he likes for himself. I believe that this simple and profound point, if acted upon, not just by Muslims, but by all people, is the means for everlasting peace in society. No doubt, everyone desires peace for themselves and their loved ones, but most people will be lying if they claim that they want their opponents and competitors to have peace and to live with contentment. Yet this is the standard of nobility and generosity of spirit that Islam requires. It is a religion and teaching that promotes selflessness and urges humans to discard all traces of selfishness.”
