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 court of cassation yesterday sentenced 23 members of the Muslim Brotherhood to five years in prison and acquitted five others.

According to Youm7, the Egyptian public prosecutor convicted the defendants of “joining a banned group, demonstrating without permission and inciting violence against state institutions.”

Security forces in Egypt’s Damietta governorate arrested the suspects in a security campaign in the province’s Basarta village, claimed to be a Muslim Brotherhood stronghold, over alleged possession of 24 Molotov cocktails and fireworks.

El Basarta has been under security siege and has been suffering repeated human rights violations by Egyptian security forces since 2017.
