Today's blog post, although it refers specifically to the East London Mosque, one of the BIGGEST Mosques in the UK, this message could also apply to a whole lot more mosques!
Give food to the Muslim Sisters who attend IFTAR!!
Last week a Muslim Sister attended the East London Mosque with a friend with the intention to do Iftar.
The brothers section is on the ground floor, and the Sisters section is upstairs on the 2nd floor.
When she came home, she said she was so disappointed she might be put off going ever again.
There was hardly any food for the Sisters. One sister had a plate of Broccoli only. Others just had chick peas.
It was so bad a Sister risked SINNING to go downstairs to the Brothers section to get food .. why? .. because the Brothers had so much food even their seconds were brimming with fullness!!
And when the Sister did return she'd been given more CHICK PEAS!!! The Sister I am referring too was given a plate of these chick peas, but she noticed there still weren't enough to go around as there were two sisters near her still without food, so, May Allah reward her profusely, she shared her plate of chick peas with the 2 sisters.
Seriously fellow Muslim Brothers, this is really shocking and DISAPPOINTING. You should be ASHAMED of yourselves, I have a lump in my throat just typing this.
So, Insha'Allah, next Ramadan please spare a thought for EVERYONE attending IFTAR at your Mosques.
