Night majlis – Monday 24th Ramadhaan / 21st July

1. In most modern countries the government has a milk fund, where an allowance is given for infant children. However, this is not something that came up recently. Rather, it is something that West has taken from Muslims. It was actually in vogue from the time of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum).

2. A Muslim’s way of life is that he lives and lets others live and he enjoys and lets others enjoy. We should not be concerned for ourselves only. We should have others at heart as well. It is the capitalist system that makes one concerned of oneself only. Therefore if there is an abundance of a food product they will be able to dump tons of that product despite the multitudes that are in need. On the contrary, the Islamic teaching is that one cannot sleep whilst his neighbour remains hungry.

3. Nowadays the mindset that we have is that whatever extra we have should be spent on ourselves only. We will go for ‘umrah trips and on holidays but not see to the plight of the poor. We need to prioritise ourselves.

4. Some people complain that these are the same people that shoot and kill us. So why should we spend on them? This is incorrect because in every community there will be bad elements. But on account of those few we cannot write off all of them.

5. The way of the people of the past was that they would always feed and take care of others. And this in fact is the teaching of the hadeeth where Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had encouraged feeding.
