For years, Muslim Hands Open Kitchen has been providing hot, healthy free meals to low-income families and rough sleepers who are struggling to find food.

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)

Working to tackle food poverty in the UK, the Open Kitchen on Mansfield Road isn’t just about food, providing a warm, safe space for people to learn and socialize.

“We basically help anybody who is struggling to figure out where their next meal is coming from, providing them with hot food for free,” the kitchen manager Imran Khan told Left Lion.

“We invite people from different organizations too, like the East Midlands Chamber and outreach groups, who come and help people to get jobs and find accommodation. We don’t just want to offer a place for people to eat, but to get back to living a full, happy life.”

Islam encompasses the concepts of community service in its morals. Showing kindness to people and charity to the poor are the most emphasized moral virtues in the Qur’an.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while his neighbour goes hungry’. [Bukhari]

“The Government needs to do more to help, because they’re just not doing enough at the moment.
