*A CALL OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD P.B.U.H. FOR A GENERAL GENEROSITY.**The Islam that God has preferred for Muhammad peace be upon him is a general compassion Islam. Not only Islam teaches us cleanliness of body 5 times daily, a safe pure diet, the uniqueness of God, but also contains prescriptions to help everyone, without exception. It contains specific connotations for helping faithful brothers and sisters, but also to help fellow human brothers and sisters of any faith.**The Qur-aan and respected prophet Muhammad peace be upon him not only teach us to be generous and kind to muslims, but to non muslims also. Not only to humans but to animals also.*
كَانُوا قَلِيلًا مِنَ اللَّيْلِ مَا يَهْجَعُونَ (17) وَبِالْأَسْحَارِ هُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ (18) وَفِي أَمْوَالِهِمْ حَقٌّ لِلسَّائِلِ وَالْمَحْرُومِ [الذاريات : 17 – 19]*Chapter 51 verse 19 of the Qur-aan teaches us: ‘’They(the pious muslims) would sleep less during the night. And they would ask for forgiveness at daybreak. And they have set a portion for the one who ask and also the one who is deprived.’’**Islam teaches us that the apogee of piety is to perfect the connection between you and your Lord by waking up in the night, praying lengthily in seclusion supplicating Him like a crying child. And during the day, take the stock of the wealth that is above your family needs to distribute it to other humans. Muslims or Non Muslims.*وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَى حُبِّهِ مِسْكِينًا وَيَتِيمًا وَأَسِيرًا (8) إِنَّمَا نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ لَا نُرِيدُ مِنْكُمْ جَزَاءً وَلَا شُكُورًا [الإنسان : 8 ، 9]‘’*And they feed joyfully the poor, the orphans and prisoners. We fed you only to please Allah, we don`t expect from you neither a return nor ‘’Thanks’’.(Chapter: The human: Verse 8-9)*تفسير القرطبي – (3 / 338)قلت: وفى التنزيل” وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعامَ عَلى حُبِّهِ مِسْكِيناً وَيَتِيماً وَأَسِيراً ” والأسير في دار الإسلام لا يكون إلا مشركا*Muslims are here prescribed to feed without expecting returns and thanks. To all humans irrespective be him a muslim and a non muslim. Be him a poor without lineage or with lineage. Be him a poor child with parents or without. Be him someone who is convicted or not. An encompassing humanity concept.**And no dumping please. During this lockdown epidemic season, we are requested to give things that are usable and eatable. Do not give things that you yourself would not have consumed it:*

سنن الترمذي – (10 / 247)حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ أَخْبَرَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْ السُّدِّيِّ عَنْ أَبِي مَالِكٍ عَنْ الْبَرَاءِ{ وَلَا تَيَمَّمُوا الْخَبِيثَ مِنْهُ تُنْفِقُونَ }قَالَ نَزَلَتْ فِينَا مَعْشَرَ الْأَنْصَارِ كُنَّا أَصْحَابَ نَخْلٍ فَكَانَ الرَّجُلُ يَأْتِي مِنْ نَخْلِهِ عَلَى قَدْرِ كَثْرَتِهِ وَقِلَّتِهِ وَكَانَ الرَّجُلُ يَأْتِي بِالْقِنْوِ وَالْقِنْوَيْنِ فَيُعَلِّقُهُ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ وَكَانَ أَهْلُ الصُّفَّة لَيْسَ لَهُمْ طَعَامٌ فَكَانَ أَحَدُهُمْ إِذَا جَاعَ أَتَى الْقِنْوَ فَضَرَبَهُ بِعَصَاهُ فَيَسْقُطُ مِنْ الْبُسْرِ وَالتَّمْرِ فَيَأْكُلُ وَكَانَ نَاسٌ مِمَّنْ لَا يَرْغَبُ فِي الْخَيْرِ يَأْتِي الرَّجُلُ بِالْقِنْوِ فِيهِ الشِّيصُ وَالْحَشَفُ وَبِالْقِنْوِ قَدْ انْكَسَرَ فَيُعَلِّقُهُ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ تَعَالَى{ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَنْفِقُوا مِنْ طَيِّبَاتِ مَا كَسَبْتُمْ وَمِمَّا أَخْرَجْنَا لَكُمْ مِنْ الْأَرْضِ وَلَا تَيَمَّمُوا الْخَبِيثَ مِنْهُ تُنْفِقُونَ وَلَسْتُمْ بِآخِذِيهِ إِلَّا أَنْ تُغْمِضُوا فِيهِ }قَالَ لَوْ أَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ أُهْدِيَ إِلَيْهِ مِثْلُ مَا أَعْطَاهُ لَمْ يَأْخُذْهُ إِلَّا عَلَى إِغْمَاضٍ أَوْ حَيَاءٍ قَالَ فَكُنَّا بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ يَأْتِي أَحَدُنَا بِصَالِحِ مَا عِنْدَهُ
