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)

UNITED NATIONS, April 2 (Xinhua) — United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday extended greetings to millions of Muslims around the world who will soon begin the holy month of Ramadan and called for joint efforts to promote world peace.

Ramadan is a period of compassion and empathy, a time for reflection and learning, an opportunity to come together and uplift each other, he said in a video message to mark the beginning of Ramadan, which is on April 2 this year.

“As (UN) High Commissioner for Refugees, I began a practice that I proudly pursued as secretary-general. Every Ramadan, I had the honor of visiting Muslim countries, fasting in solidarity and breaking bread with people. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic made that impossible, but I am happy to resume this tradition this year,” he said.

“In these times of tragedy and suffering, my thoughts and heart are with everyone facing conflict, displacement and fear,” said Guterres.

“In this holy month and every day, let us take inspiration by working hand in hand for the safety, dignity and prosperity of all women and men. Let us learn from each other and, together, build a peaceful world,” he said.  ■
