(Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1376)
Aren’t we so blessed by the grace of Allah to have such immense prosperity in our lives? If our biggest struggle during Iftar today was to make sure we didn’t eat too much, we have a lot to thank Allah for.
Every Ramadan, NZF caseworkers are constantly approached by individuals who don’t have enough money to feed their families in this blessed month. They have to make the tough decision of choosing between purchasing food or paying for rent.
There is a growing concern about the magnitude of poverty in the Canadian Muslim community as many assume people back home are more worthy of charity – or some fail to admit the problem exists at all.
However, it is shocking to know that 1 in 8 Canadian families struggle to put food on the table. Unfortunately, 32% of them are children (Daily Bread Food Bank, 2015).
