Help the needy project at khizra mosque

As part of our held the needy project over the previous weekend many of our young volunteers helped arrange food for the families who are in need in our locality. This month we are supporting 8-9 local families with food items for one month. We then received a call from another 2 local families and again our volunteers were able to provide food items for one month to these local families.

This is an opportunity for us to help those in need. We had several new volunteers helping out in this great project. We must be grateful to Allah SWT who has blessed us with an opportunity to help those in need. Many of our brothers and sisters regularly help with this project.

May Allah accept their donations, efforts and hard work in this cause and reward them abundantly in this life and the hereafter.

On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who said, ”Whosoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Judgment”.

Jazakallah khairun.
