Mosque Volunteers Help South Wales Less Fortunate

0 8

It was Ramadan last year when a group of volunteers from a local mosque in Maindee, South Wales, delivered food parcels to those in need during pandemic.

FEED THE POOR

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)

Approaching another Ramadan this year, the group now delivers parcels to about 30 families including five non-Muslims, South Wales Argus reported.

“We’re working under the banner of iCare, we’re just hoping this is a project that can build,” Dr Bilal Raza, who works in psychiatry and is a keen cricketer, said.

“We always encourage the youth regardless of background, I think we’ve all suffered the same.

“As Muslims, we have a responsibility to our local community to try and help anyone and everyone.

“A mosque is not a place of worship, it’s a community hub for all and everyone to come and bring their problems. Anyone is welcome here.”
