A group of four Muslim men has been praised for hosting a free barbecue for bushfire victims after driving from Sydney to New South Wales mid-north coast, The Daily Mail reported.


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)

“Appreciation post from us all at Willa. Thank you for
driving from Sydney to cater lunch for everyone,” one woman wrote alongside a
photograph of the men in a Facebook post.

“These guys brought all the food with them as well. Muchly

The unnamed men traveled six hours from their homes in Lakemba, western Sydney, to the Willawarrin Hotel, inland of Port Macquarie, to help boost locals’ spirits.

They cooked meat and sausages and, with the help of a local bakery which donated fresh bread, handed out free lunch to locals doing it tough after the bushfire.

The woman’s Facebook post drew hundreds of comments from the locals who praised the Muslim men for their kindness.

“This is the actual face of Australia and what Australia
should look like,” one man wrote on the post, as others commended those
involved and said they made them “proud to be an Aussie”.

Another woman who attended the free event told the men to
pay no mind to a few “rude comments with no appreciation for the kindness in
everyone’s hearts.”

“Please take note of the majority. Our community appreciates the time you have taken to cook for and spend time with us. No matter what source of sustenance. Community is all we have in these times,” she said.

One man who claims to know the group said they are often looking for ways to contribute to good causes.

“They see it as nothing. [It is] just a part of their life and faith to help when they can and are able to,” the man wrote on the original post.

Muslim Help

According to the 2016 Australian Census, the number of
Muslims in Australia constituted 604,200 people, or 2.6% of the total
Australian population, an increase of over 15% of its previous population share
of 2.2% reported in the previous census 5 years.

Muslims have been offering helping hand to their communities
struggling with drought and bushfire.

Earlier in November, a Southern Queensland town received
a massive donation
of tonnes of hay from Muslim Aid Australian charity.

Last year on `Eid Al-Adha day, more than 30,000 Australian Muslims gathered in Sydney to pray for rain and an end to what’s been called the worst
drought in living memory.

In 2016, a big number of Muslim refugees volunteered
to help save communities
from dangerous bushfires, in an area facing a
shortage of fire-fighting volunteers.
