When you see a fellow human being suffering or hear of a disaster that has taken place, your first instinct is to help. Where do you turn?
Give your Qurbani with WF-AID
Qurbani is the religious practice of sacrificing an animal in the way of Allah (swt), whose meat is then distributed among deprived communities for eating.
On a spiritual level, this act symbolises a human beings willingness to give up or detach from those barriers (such as wealth, pride, arrogance) which weaken our faith and hold us back from seeking closeness to Allah (swt). It is a time for people to reflect on what changes we need to make within ourselves to become better human beings.
‘(if you wonder why Allah Needs your Qurbani’s flesh/blood?) It is not their flesh or their blood that reaches Allah. Rather, it is your God-wariness (sacrificial spirit to revere & obey him) that reaches Him (& raises you close to Him)…’ (Surah Al-Hajj, 22:37)
The UNITED NATIONS WORKS AND RELIEF AGENCY (UNRWA) strongly condemns the parties responsible for two explosions in the vicinity of Qabr Essit camp in the town of Sayyida Zeinab on 11 June 2016.
The month of Ramadhan is filled with the mercy and blessings of Allah (swt). Increasing our good deeds, giving charity and helping others are among the best actions we can perform to seek nearness to the Almighty.
