It’s always a good time to give, but the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal, when our beloved
Prophet (peace be upon him) was born, makes our giving especially blessed. His mission
brought the Divine light and learning to us. Our job is to preserve the sacred source
and contribute positively to our surroundings and spread the message of peace, mercy
and compassion which is at the core of Prophetic (ﷺ) teachings.
Minhaj Interfaith and Welfare Foundation carried out various welfare activities
in this blessed month to fulfill the needs of the poor and the destitute. A brief
report of our latest events is given below:

and many other traditions.

be upon him) said: ‘ A visitor walking to visit a patient will be wading in the
mercy of Allah. When the visitor sits with the patient he will be immersed in mercy
until his, or her return.’
