The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “One is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour goes hungry.” (Bukhari)
Islamic Relief is implementing innovative food solutions all over the world. Children are often hit hardest by food shortages, so we have feeding programmes to fight malnutrition and prevent future health problems. We have started food banks in Niger, opened feeding centres in Bangladesh, treated malnourished children in Somalia, irrigated farms in Gaza…but we need your support to help even more people in need.
Such is the plight of those who go hungry, Allah SWT mentioned them Himself to the Prophet (peace be upon him):
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) quoted Allah as saying: “O son of Adam, I asked you for food and you fed Me not.” (The person) will respond: “O Lord, how could I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds?” (Allah) will then say: “Did you not know that My (hungry servant) asked you for food and you fed him not? Did you not know that had you fed him you would surely have found (the reward for doing so) with Me?” Hadith Qudsi 18
Allah has promised a reward for feeding His hungry servants, so gather rewards by donating generously to the poor and hungry.
