MKA Southall Homeless Meal Distribution

On the 13th of April 2024, Southall khuddam with the motivation of our KEK department, executed a Homeless Meals distribution initiative, providing a total of 45 meals to the vulnerable. This initiative was assisted by some khuddam from Greenford and Hounslow may Allah bless them abundantly. It was a complete success thanks to everyone who volunteered from fundraising, shopping, cooking to distribution. Giving to others in the name of Allah is true to following the sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW.

There are countless ahadith about the Prophet (saw) showing generosity towards those who are vulnerable. From giving comfort to orphans to supporting the elderly, he (saw) was the epitome of expressing his love and mercy to others through tangible actions.

He (saw) said it most beautifully and concisely when he told us, ’Free the captives, feed the hungry and pay a visit to the sick’. [Bukhari]

We can see this Prophetic wisdom in action in the following hadith:

’I used to forbid you to store the meat of the (Qurbani) sacrifices for more than three days, so that there would be enough for everyone. But now Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, has bestowed plenty upon us, so eat some, give some in charity and store some. For these days (of Eid) are the days of eating, drinking and remembering Allah…′ [Nasa’i]
