Allah is always aware of the good you do. An elder father in our community was filled with awe when Ansaar-ul-Birr Community Services (“The Helpers of Righteousness”) presented him with a 2-dozen carton of eggs. A simple act generated an emotional response from the father, because he had recently given his last dozen and a half eggs to his unemployed son. He witnessed the Prophetic truth in action that charity does not decrease wealth.

Ansaar-ul Birr, one of the major social service projects of the Dar-us-Salaam community, regularly funds bags of essentials for local families. This project, run by about 30 volunteers in a WhatsApp group, serves the community by providing food for the sick, assists women in postpartum, takes the senior “elderberries” in the community out for breakfast, supplies health screenings, prepares breakfast, as well as cooks dinner to aid those in both men’s and women’s shelters. Ansaar-ul Birr is using local restaurants’ delivery services to get meals to anyone unwell, avoiding the direct contact which is spreading the coronavirus.

The cost of sponsoring a grocery bag of necessities, including fresh produce, sugar, salt, oil, etc to be delivered to families in need is $25.  During these uncertain times, why not reap the opportunity of racing towards a chance to aid those in need? Support the Ansaar-ul-Birr today.
