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)

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal Bin Farhan said talks are underway for Syria’s return to the Arab League.

“There is a consensus in the Arab world that the situation in Syria is not acceptable,” Bin Farhan said in an interview with Saudi-run Al Arabiya television.

“There is a dialogue on the return of Syria to the Arab League, but I think it’s too early to discuss,” he added.

The Saudi minister’s comments came weeks after last month’s devastating earthquakes that killed tens of thousands in both Syria and Turkiye. According to UN figures, around 6,000 were killed and 12,000 others injured in the quakes in Syria.

Syria’s membership in the Cairo-based Arab League was suspended in 2011 following a deadly crackdown by the regime of Bashar Al-Assad on pro-democracy protests.

In 2021, steps began to normalise relations between the Syrian regime and a number of Arab countries, including Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab EmiratesOman and Bahrain whose officials met with Al-Assad earlier this year.

OPINION: Syria’s long history of sanctions hurts the people much more than the regime
