Difficult times often brings out the best in people.


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)

As coronavirus sweeps across the world, many athletes have come out en masse to help the needy at this difficult time.

World-renowned boxing legend Amir Khan is the latest to join the list of philanthropist athletes.

The former light-welterweight world champion has pledged to
give his £5m wedding venue in Bolton to the NHS to help coronavirus victims.

The 60,000 square foot building was due to be turned into a
wedding venue and retail outlet.

The 33-year-old wrote on Twitter: “I am aware of how difficult it is for the public to get a hospital bed in this tragic time.

“I am prepared to give my 60,000 square foot 4 story building which is due to be a wedding hall and retail outlet to the NHSuk to help people affected by the coronavirus.

Khan is the latest name in sport to have made huge contributions to help fight the Covid-19 outbreak.

Liverpool Muslim forward Sadio Mane made a donation worth 30 million CFA francs (£41,000) to aid the battle against coronavirus in Senegal earlier in March.

Earlier this week, a British Muslim businessman donated £200,000 to NHS, launching an appeal to raise £1 million.

Preston mosques have also donated items to help NHS critical care staff through tough times.
