Aaina Friends Circle – Ramzan Ration Initiative 2023

As salaamu alaikum wa rehmatullahe wa barakatuhu brothers and sisters

Hope you are doing well by the grace, mercy and blessings of Allah

Narrated Abu Musa(raziallahu anhu)

Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Free the captives, feed the hungry and pay a visit to the sick.”

“And they give food, inspite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to Miskin(the poor), the orphan, and the captive,(Saying): “We feed you seeking Allâh’s Countenance only. We wish for no reward, nor thanks from you.”

Quran 76.8-9

Surah Al-Insan

We all know of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam where a person was forgiven by Allah because he quenched the thirst of a dog. Imagine the reward we may expect from Allah for feeding a family for the entire month in the blessed month of Ramadhan.

Alhamdulillah, Aaina Friends Circle has been distributing food rations in the month of Ramadhan since past few years, in Pune city. Help is provided to poor and needy families (widows and orphans), so they can have proper meals at least during the month of Ramadhan. This year we have a list of 800 families at present, and counting. These families mostly consist of widows and children. We survey different places to find about such families who are in genuine need of help. Priority is given to families with genuine need, who don’t have access to amenities such as TV etc. They live in rented houses, and their income is enough either to pay for the rents or to have proper meals.

In-Sha-Allah, distribution will start one week prior to Ramadhan, by covering families in immense need.

Cost of one food ration package is Approx Rs.2000/- (Variable) It is a humble request to everyone to contribute with your Zakat/Sadaqa/Lillah for this noble cause.

At the end of Ramadhan, In-Sha-Allah, a detailed report would be sent to everyone.
