MIWF Milad 2019: Welfare activities report

To highlight the merciful and compassionate nature of the teachings of our
beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Minhaj Interfaith and Welfare
foundation volunteers participated in various welfare activities on the occasion
of the birth of the beloved Prophet (peace be upon him). A short summary of the
events held in the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal is being given:

Welfare event for cancer patients

As part of the Milad celebration in the blessed month of Rabiul Awwal, MIWF
team visited Noori Hall, Parel on 17th November 2019 and conducted a welfare
event for cancer patients in collaboration with Cancare foundation.

The event started with the recitation of the Holy Qur’an by Maulana Ali
Muhammad who said the human body is a precious gift from Almighty Allah Who has
created it in the best composition. He stated that each human being is
accountable for maintaining this body by avoiding it from harmful things. He
further stated that if proper dietary habits given in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah
are adopted by mankind, all diseases including cancer can be avoided. He
stressed that patience over the troubles of disease brings immense reward and
good behavior with relatives and prayers prolongs life and cures apparently
incurable diseases.

He related many incidents from the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon
him), which mention the service for fellow beings without any discrimination.

Maulana Ali Muhammad congratulated the volunteers who are fulfilling the
sunnah of our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) by serving the patients and
stated that it’s important that parents nurture the spirit of volunteerism and
servitude in their kids at young age by telling them about Seerah so that we
have more such people who are willing to sacrifice their time, efforts and money
for the sake of serving the humanity.

Sagir Deshmukh (Cancare Foundation) gave a presentation about the causes of
cancer, preventive measures, and sources to get financial help and cures for the
disease. He highlighted the need to stay away from smoking, alcohol, and tobacco
and mentioned that women of our society have a great role to address these
evils. He expressed happiness on the MIWF joining the fight against cancer.
