Why should I feed the poor?
And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (It is) the setting free of a slave, or the giving of food in a day of hunger, to an orphan having relationship, or to the poor man lying in the dust. [Al-Quran 90: 012-016]
Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie? That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness, And does not urge (others) to feed the poor. [Al-Quran 107:1-3]
Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: ” The most excellent sadaqah consists in your satisfying the hungry stomach.” (Al-Tirmidhi #1946)
