Help the poor this Ramadhan!


By: Masood Malikyar

The doors of contrition are wide open during this holy month. Let us take advantage of that by constantly seeking Allah’s – ‘Ezza wa Jal – Istighfar (forgiveness). Let us also take a step further – individually and collectively – to help the indigent. Let us not limit our assistance to just the poor around us. Let us extend our generosity – those of us who have a little – to those who don’t in other parts of the world as well – especially now due to the prevailing global economic crisis. Fasting is obligatory on all capable Muslims. But, if we neglect to help the poor, we fail to understand the true nature of this important obligation.
