Masjid e Umer 79 Queens Road, Walthamstow, London, Greater London, E17 8QR
Alhumdulillah, (All praise to God) we finished delivering your fantastic donation to the community's food banks. The food was delivered to Ruksana Khan Foundation as well as Eat or Heat. It is at these times we need try to make a habit of regularly donating to these places even if it is once every few months on an individual basis.
These are small and easy deeds that our Beloved Messenger (sallalahu alayhi wasallam) taught us.
Imam al-Tirmidhi reported that the Prophet said:
"O people! Spread the greeting of peace, feed (the poor and needy), behave kindly to your relatives, offer prayer when others are asleep, and (thus) enter Paradise in peace."
Where can we find better advice that this? In these times, when there is so much hatred, we need to spread such teachings and show all the beautiful character of the Beloved Messenger (sallahu alayhi waslam).
We would like to take this opportunity to thank EVERYONE that helped, be it by donating, leafleting or delivering food. We pray that Allah blesses you ALL and most importantly may Allah accept this small action of kindness to people less fortunate than us. May allah be pleased with us each time someone benefits from the food donated.
Also a huge thanks to the foodbanks themselves for accepting our donation and for the work they do all year round.
Here are some pictures of the donations.
Community Action required
Following up on last year's foodbank collection, we would once again like to organise the community to provide assistance to the most vulnerable in our community, irrespective of race or religion.
The harsh reality is that in Walthamstow more and more familes are turning to local food banks for assistance.
We want to help these food banks and we are asking you for donations of the following food items:
- Boxes of cereal
- Canned beans (inc Baked beans)
- Pasta / Rice
- Canned vegetables
- Noodles / Couscous
- Canned soup
- Canned spaghetti
- Long Life milk
- Teabags / Coffee
- Pasta Sauce
- Canned fish
Through your participation we hope to raise food for our local food banks (including Eat or Heat and others too) that are helping families who are struggling to provide food for themselves and families.
Please drop off your donated food to Masjid e Umer (79 Queens Road Walthamstow E17) from this THURSDAY 1ST JANUARY 2015 TO SUNDAY 4TH JANUARY 2015, anytime between 1pm and 8pm.
"(The righteous are those) who feed the poor, the orphan and the captive for the love of God, saying: 'We feed you for the sake of God Alone; we seek from you neither reward nor thanks.'" (The Holy Quran, 76:8-9)
