Together, in #30DaysOfKindess, we can support the most vulnerable and needy refugee families this winter
With winter cold and storms get harsher, our thoughts go to those vulnerable families facing many risks amid extreme poverty.
#30DaysOfKindess initiative, launched by Al Azhar’s Islamic Research Academy in and UNHCR, aims to reach over 3.8 million refugee and internally displaced who are in dire need for help in Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt.
This initiative targets supporting those families and their children during 30 days through four main themes: Shelter, food, winter clothes, and livelihoods.
While many of us are basking in the warmth of our home, let’s choose kindness to help those people who are struggling to secure their basic living needs. And today, we encourage you to join and contribute to this initiative by sharing the daily messages with your family and friends, so we can together raise the refugee voices and their stories of struggle to the world, especially in this winter.
It was narrated on the authority of Ibn Omar that a man came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: O Messenger of Allah, which people are most beloved to Allah? What actions are most beloved to Allah? The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him): “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to others. And most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove one of his troubles, or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger. To walk with a brother regarding a need is more beloved to me than secluding myself in this mosque (the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina for a month). Whoever swallows his anger, then Allah will conceal his faults. And whoever suppresses his rage, even though he could fulfill his anger if he wished, then Allah will secure his heart on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever walks with his brother regarding a need until he secures it for him, Allah Almighty will make his footing firm across the bridge on the Day when the footings are shaken”.
