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)

  • Pierbattista Pizzaballa: Expansion of Jewish settlements in West Bank makes prospect of peace deal ‘increasingly difficult’
  • ‘In Gaza, there are 2 million people locked up in the poverty of a tiny strip of land, left without water and electricity for several hours a day’

RIMINI, Italy: The Palestinian people feel “abandoned by the international community,” the Latin patriarch of Jerusalem said on Saturday at a conference on inter-religious dialogue in the Italian city of Rimini.

The expansion of Jewish settlements in the West Bank makes the prospect of an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement “increasingly difficult,” added Pierbattista Pizzaballa, the most senior Catholic figure in the Holy Land.

“In Gaza, there are 2 million people locked up in the poverty of a tiny strip of land, left without water and electricity for several hours a day,” he said.

“Palestinians now believe that they have been abandoned by the international community and are left alone to fight for their country, for Palestine.”

Dr. Mohammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, secretary-general of the Muslim World League, will address the conference on Sunday.
