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)

Israel’s national air carrier El Al yesterday began operating a new time-saving route via the airspace of Oman and Saudi Arabia, it said.

El Al Flight 083 departed from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport yesterday evening bound for Thailand’s capital Bangkok, according to Xinhua, marking the first Israeli commercial flight using the new corridor.

The new route, the Israeli company said, would shorten flights to some Asian destinations by about two hours.

Last week, Oman announced that it would open its airspace to Israel following a similar move by Saudi Arabia in July 2022.

Israel does not have official ties with either Oman or Saudi Arabia.

Sheikh Ahmad Al-Hanbaly, the Mufti of Oman, condemned the move and called for the rulers to retreat from this decision.
