Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, many of the elderly, widowed, refugee, and low-income families in the US have suffered lack of access to the basic needs.


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)

A leading American Muslim charity is working to change this by providing help.

The Islamic Circle of North America Relief has begun distributing fresh produce from USDA Farmers to Families Program in Atlanta.

The ICNA Relief Food Pantry request has nearly tripled due to layoffs or other unfortunate circumstances pertaining to the pandemic.
