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)

Masjid Abuzar Ghifari is situated 900m north of Masjid-e-Nabwi and is also known as Masjid Sajdah after a hugely auspicious incident that occurred here with the Prophet (ﷺ).

  • It has been reported by Abdur Rahman bin Auf (رضي الله عنه) that the Prophet (ﷺ) came to a garden of the Baitul-Maal (treasury) and offered salah, then went in to a (lengthy) prostration. I said to the Prophet (ﷺ): “Oh Prophet of Allah, you prostrated (for so long) that I feared that Allah may have taken your soul”. The Prophet (ﷺ) said:“Jibraeel came with a message from Allah; ‘He who sends salutations and peace upon you, I shall send mercy and blessings upon him.’ I prostrated in gratitude of this bounty of Allah.”
