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 missing Saudi man was found dead in the middle of the desert on Sunday morning, after three days of intensive searches, local media reported.

Fourty-year-old Dhuwaihi Hamoud Al Ajaleen, a resident of Wadi Al Dawasir in Riyadh province of Saudi Arabia, was registered missing by his family. A wide-scale search was instigated and his body was found prostrating in the desert, as if in prayer. It is not known which of the five prayers Al Ajaleen was offering at the time of his death.

His pick-up truck was found only metres from him. Video footage of the scene shows the car stuck in the sand.

Prayers poured in on social media after videos of Al Ajaleen circulated.
