The global Coronavirus epidemic has engulfed the entire world. Conditions around the world are changing at lightning speed. This global epidemic has devastated the entire world economy and its terror has caused a commotion among the people everywhere. Millions have lost their lives and millions have fallen victim to it. But it cannot be said that the epidemic has reached its climax. The death toll is rising by 20 to 30 percent every day.
There is currently no vaccine and no one has an effective plan to control the situation. Powerful countries of the world have also laid down their arms against this dangerous virus. The World Health Organization has declared it a medical emergency. The governments of the country are issuing orders to take various precautionary measures under the guidance of health experts to prevent this.
In view of which Pakistan Lockdown is enforced all over the world including Markets, educational institutions, factories, transport and all kinds of economic activities have been canceled and people have been confined to their homes. Due to this emergency lockdown, all the citizens are facing immense difficulties.
Especially the working class and the poor, whose daily routine depended on daily wages, were most affected by it, and it was time for famine. It seems that this deadly virus has come to make the poor even poorer. People living in slums are forced to say that death from the corona is not certain but if the situation remains the same, they will starve to death.
Lockdown has cut off the livelihood of these poor people who are now starving with poverty. Hunger is a disease that robs a person of the distinction between halal and haraam, pure and impure. Therefore, a tribute to those who do not lose patience and face difficult situations in a brave way. Do it boldly but it is a fact that hunger is very difficult to bear. The bitter and cruel reality of the universe is hunger. Hunger is a great evil.
Humans, birds, and living beings are helpless in the face of their hunger. That is why the recent lockdown in the face of the coronavirus has made hunger a major problem for the poor and vulnerable. Although the government claims to provide food to the poor and needy people. This process could not be ensured, which is why people are worried. As Muslims, we have a duty to help the poor and needy around us, regardless of religion.
Feed the hungry, which has been declared the most pleasing deed in the sight of the Almighty, and this is the central point in the teachings of the system of life which was made available to mankind through the Prophet of the End Times. That hunger is very difficult to bear. The bitter and cruel reality of the universe is hunger. Hunger is a great evil.
As Muslims, we have a duty to help the poor and needy around us, regardless of religion. Feed the hungry, which has been declared the most pleasing deed in the sight of the Allah Almighty, and this is the central point in the teachings of the system of life which was made available to mankind through the Prophet of the End Times.
The Allah Almighty said, “And they feed the poor and the orphan and the prisoner out of love for Him.”
Islam is not just a collection of certain acts of worship such as fasting, prayer, Hajj, and Umrah, but these rights and entitlements. There is a beautiful combination of worship. And the importance of rights of worship in Islam has been explained more than the importance of rights. That is why Islam taught the world of humanity mutual brotherhood, love, compassion, and service.
Helping, assisting, caring for, and comforting the needy, the poor, the orphans, and the needy is the basic teaching of religion and Islam. Helping others, cooperating with them, providing them with the necessities of daily life has been described by religion and Islam as a recipe for reward and pleasing one’s Lord.
In a hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“It is better for you to make your believing brother happy or to pay his debt or to feed him.”
It is obligatory on the able-bodied to help the deserving as much as possible. The main purpose of social and welfare is the care and welfare of the needy, helpless, disabled, and sick, widows, orphans, and helpless people of society. This goal can only be achieved if there is a balance between wealth and need in society by eliminating the need and disability of such people.
Those who spend their wealth to alleviate poverty and need from society, Allah Almighty considers their expenditure as good debt. At the same time, they guarantee that the wealth spent in the way of Allah will be multiplied many times over. Helping others and meeting their needs is a very pleasing act in the sight of the Allah Almighty, especially the one who feeds is given the glad tidings of Paradise.
Therefore, Islam is a religion of utter benevolence. Doing good and helping others brings real happiness and comfort, which leads to the contentment of heart as well as divine pleasure. Mohsin Humanity not only commanded the needs of the needy but in practice, he himself always helped the poor, the orphans, the needy, and the needy.
It is a pity that not a single day goes by without the media reporting that a mother killed her children due to hunger and poverty in some place, a father committed suicide, and an educated young man is suffering from unemployment and poverty. Annoyed that looting and robbery became a profession.
The real reason for the manifestation and prevalence of all such evils is the distance from the true teachings of Islam. Today we see that away from the enlightened teachings of Islam, our way of life, our way of life has become very strange, indifference is becoming the norm of today’s society, we feel the pain of our relatives, neighbors, the needy do not have. We eat to our heart’s content, but we don’t even look at our hungry neighbors.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Abu Dharr! When you cook soup, put more water in it and remember your neighbors. ”And he called depriving the neighbors as unfaithful. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“A servant is not a believer who eats on his own and his neighbor goes hungry.”
The Qur’an says about those who feed themselves but do not take care of the poor and the needy that they will be in Hell on the Day of Resurrection and will explain the reason for going to Hell. They did not pray, nor did they feed the poor. Read More – Positive Effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic
