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)

Egypt’s historic Mosque of Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah, named after the sixth Fatimid Caliph and located in old Cairo, was re-opened for visitors on Monday, 27 February, after renovations, Reuters reports.

The renovation project for Egypt’s fourth oldest mosque, and its second largest, began in 2017 with a budget of 85 million Egyptian pounds ($2.8 million).

The renovation, done in collaboration between Egypt’s antiquities authority and Bohra Shia sect, included architectural restoration, as well as maintenance to protect the walls of the mosque from the effects of moisture and salts.
