It’s always a good time to give, but the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal, when our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) was born, makes our giving especially blessed. His mission brought the Divine light and learning to us. Our job is to preserve the sacred source and contribute positively to our surroundings and spread the message of peace, mercy and compassion which is at the core of Prophetic (ﷺ) teachings.
Minhaj Interfaith and Welfare Foundation carried out various welfare activities in this blessed month to fulfill the needs of the poor and the destitute. A brief report of our latest events is given below:
