This Ramadhaan Don’t Forget Your Poor Fellow Muslims – Shaykh Khalid Adh-Dhufayree

A powerful reminder by the Shaykh to help our fellow Muslims who are in need.

“Slaves of Allah, do not forget your brothers from those of them who are poor and those who are in need, from your neighbours and those closest to you family and whoever you know. So help them with the expenses of this month Ramadan.”

Appeal for the Masjid Running Costs, Bills and Rent

Asalamualaikum wa rahamtullahi wa barakaatuhu. We pray you are all well and in the best of eemaan. By the permission of Allah we have managed to accomplish a lot at the masjid over the summer. However the work done has taken its toll on finances; as we raised less than was needed (by etimation) in the end for the work outside; as well as had to pay for secondary unforeseen things such as clean up labour time and secondary items not priced into work.

The masjid currently runs a lot of activities for everyone; and employs a lot of people – brothers and sisters. We also do not charge very much so we are always often at just break even in terms of our finance; whereby the wages for the staff (Quran School, Saturday School and more) are just about covered; and sometimes not met.

As a result we rely on the good nature of the people to assist the masjid in the rest of its efforts. Usually this balances out; however currently the masjid is making a loss whereby we have had to borrow small funds from brothers to keep the masjid running and to complete the work.

Therefore we are appealing to everyone if they can help us plug this shortfall in two ways. The first one is the urgent need of £6000 which we need for our rent and to pay back what we’ve borrowed.

However long term, to avoid such issues, what would really help is a regular donation if possible, by everyone who can give something for the sake of Allah. If you can set up a standing order from your online or telephone bank of just five pounds a month this would help us massively. Our dawa here has always been a collective effort and we pray that this is an excellent opportunity to gain yet more reward and salvation from Allah azza wajal. £5 a month isn’t too much, working out to less than £1.25 a week. And this would fall in line with the hadeeth of the Prophet Salalaahu Alayhi wa Salam which was narrated by Abu Hurrairah that he Salalaahu Alayhi wa Salam said “Take on only as much as you can of good deeds, for the best of deeds is that which is done consistently, even if it is little”

So please take a few minutes of your time to do this and then forget it and let the deeds pile up biidhnillah.

And the reward is with Allah

If you wish to make a one off donation please reference it as appeal2018. Thi will go toward the £6000 debt we have. Or if you can set up a regular standing order then please do so using the following information.

The Amazing Reward of Giving Sadaqah and Being Charitable: A Noble Trait of the Prophet

The Amazing Reward of Giving Sadaqah and Being Charitable: A Noble Trait of the Prophet

The Sin of the Person Who Does Not Provide for Those Under His Care. Hadeeth: Explanation of Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad

Abū Dawūd reported the hadīth of Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr (Allāh be pleased with him). He said, “Allāh’s Messenger (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said”

“Sufficient sin for a man is that he neglects those he should provide for.”(1)

Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin (hafidahullāh):

“Meaning, a person sins due to the absence of spending and providing on the one spending upon is obligated.

Regardless of whether that was due to him not seeking sustenance for them (by working), or if he was wealthy but was stingy and tightfisted with them.

Or perhaps he spends and gives optional charity to those who aren’t close to him, neglecting those who it is obligatory for him to spend on, from those close to him, (wife, children etc), so by doing this he fulfils a recommended act but abandons an obligation.

Indeed he is sinful because he abandons that which Allāh (‘azza wa jal) obligated upon him, from spending upon those it is obligated to provide for.

This is similar to the previous hadīth(2), Spend it on yourself, then your child, then your wife, then your servant, then he (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said: You have better knowledge; meaning: after that, give charity to whomsoever you wish, or don’t, its entirely up to you.”


Slightly Paraphrased from Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin’s (hafidahullāh) explanation of this hadīth in his lessons on Sunan Abū Dawūd in the Prophets Masjid.

(1) Authenticated by Shaykh Al-Albāni Sahīh Sunan Abū Dawūd Hadīth Nos. 1692 Vol.1 Pg. 469
(2) Full wording of the Hadīth:

On the Authority of Abū Hurayrah, he said Allāh’s Messenger commanded with giving in charity. Then a man said, “Oh Allāh’s Messenger! I have a dīnār?”

So Allāh’s Messenger said “Spend it in on yourself”.

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your offspring.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your wife.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your servant.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “You have better knowledge.” (On how to spend it, or give in charity to.)

Hungry People Hoping for a Mouthful of Food & Scrap of Bread, Yet Some People Waste Food – a brief Admonition by Shaikh Fawzaan

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

Reducing spending and not being extravagant and wasteful is an obligation during marriage ceremonies and other than it. These squanderers who waste meat and food and dispose of it in waste bins should be reminded that there are hungry people hoping for a mouth full of (food) and a scrap of bread. (They should be reminded) to fear Allaah and to fear Him in their gatherings, and that they do not become the cause of Allaah’s blessings being stop.
