Ramadhan Kareem 1437 AH | Father Figure


The above footage was shot at Masjid Al Bukhary in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. On average about 2,000 Muslims have their Iftar daily at the mosque. So you can imagine the rewards that Allah has for the owner of the mosque and the benefactor - a super wealthy man who is responsible for many dependents unknown to him: a wandering faqir in the city who makes the mosque his "home" where he could break his fast; busy firemen and police traffic men who are on duty who usually have iftar in the nick of time; single mothers with small children who struggle to make ends meet; foreign students who must be missing the comfort of having iftar at home; these and many more people from all walks of life have their iftar at the mosques all over the country, such as Masjid Al Bukhary. 

"The Prophet told his companions that a person who provides food for a fasting person gets the same reward as the fasting person and the angels pray for him because of his actions."
[From Riyadhus Salihin] 

On this Father's Day, the 9th of June, may Allah bless all fathers who are responsible for their dependents, who work hard to bring food to the table, whose love knows no bound so that each of his dependent is cared for and supported, financially, physically and emotionally. It does not matter that he has no shoes, it does not matter if he's unkempt as long as he provides a good future for his children.

A poor farmer who supported his son through college.

I couldn't agree more with this meaningful poster I saw at Mc Donalds:

Kebaikan hadir kepada yang sabar menanti.
Good things come to those who wait patiently.
