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)

  • The place of Masid Sabaq is about 520m north-west of Masjid-e-Nabwi.
  • According to some reports this area is where the Sahabah would play games of throwing watermelon rinds to each other and where the Prophet (ﷺ) and Aisha (رضي الله عنها) would sometimes race with each other.
