This was the view of the Chief Missioner, Nasrullahil- Fatih Society (NASFAT), Imam Abdul-Azeez Morufu Onike at the inaugural Prayer Session of Nasfat Outreach at Dolphin Central Mosque.


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)

He therefore urged the participants at the prayer session and members of NASFAT to seize the opportunity of the weekly Asalat to ask any thought provoking question on “seemingly confusing, disturbing or unclear and misunderstood concepts of Islam from the scholars who will engage them in comprehensive discussion of these issues without going astray.”
