AN Ibadan based charitable Islamic Organisation, Imam IbnulQayyim Islamic Foundation through her programme 1441 Ramadan Welfare Package on Friday distributed bags of rice, beans and yam flour to 70 needy families in Ibadan at Muflihun High School, Muslim-Ifelodun area, Ibadan.
The foundation also gave cash in addition to the foodstuffs to selected 20 people mainly widows and divorces.
Rasheed Adekunle Haashim, Director of the Foundation, explained that the foundation has been embarking on provision of relief materials and welfare packages to the needy in the blessed month of Ramadan and beyond since five years ago.
While noting that the 1441 edition coincides with Covid-19 pandemic, he remarked that the management of Imam IbnulQayyim Islamic Foundation would not relent its efforts of making life comfortable for the poor.
Haashim then urged well-to-do Nigerians to support the Foundation in all its projects by donating generously to the foundation.
He assured donors of judicious use of their donations as the motto of the foundation is: “Caring for the less privileged with fear of Allah.”
He quoted a narration where the noble Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever relieves a believer from one of the difficulties of this world, Allah will relieve him from one of the difficulties of the Day of Resurrection. Whoever makes things easy for one in distress, Allah will make things easy for him in this world and in the hereafter.”
In his concluding remarks, he profoundly appreciated all the donors and prayed to God to reward them and provide for them from His Bounties.
One of the beneficiaries, Luqman, expressed appreciation to the management of IbnulQayyim and prayed to God to continue providing for the Foundation and its supporters.
