Charity needed most by Somalians

Salam Brothers and Sisters,

I came across the video on famine in somalia which I wanted to share with you all. I found it quite sad and tragic for our brothers and sisters dying of hunger.

  • More than 30% of children are suffering from acute malnutrition
  • Two adults or four children are dying of hunger each day for every group of 10,000 people
  • The population have access to far below 2,100 kilocalories of food per day.

The link to the video on Somalian crisis is:  http://www.irusa.org/emergencies/east-africa-crisis/

 

Allah has stressed the importance of charity in Quran many times as listed below:

[2:254]  O you who believe, you shall give to charity from the provisions we have given to you, before a day comes where there is no trade, no nepotism, and no intercession. The disbelievers are the unjust.

[2:274]  Those who give to charity night and day, secretly and publicly, receive their recompense from their Lord; they will have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

 

Ramadan is a great time where we can show gratitude to Allah not just by depriving ourselves from food and water but providing food and water to those who need the most.

 

May all of you have a blessed Ramadan.

 

Sadi
