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)

The Rachel’s Tomb is visited annually by tens of thousands of people, especially Jewish women who cannot give birth. Many come to visit on the 11th Jewish month of Cheshvan, the anniversary of her death. Jewish tradition teaches that Rachel was crying about her children and that when the Jews were sent into exile, she cried when they passed her grave on the way to Babylonia.

Believers in Kabbalah sometimes wrap a red thread around the grave and turn it into bracelets that serve as talismans.
