Barakah bags is an extremely simple way of “doing a good deed”.
The Qur’an reminds the believers to care for the needy, the orphans, the destitute and the helpless members of society. ‘The believers … are steadfast in prayers, and in whose wealth there is a right acknowledged, for the poor and the destitute. (Qur’an 70:22-24).
The aim of this community project is to distribute on the go packs to homeless individuals in our communities. Many charities will feed the homeless once a week but distributing Barakah bags ensures that on the other days the homeless have the essentials they might need.
Each Barakah bag is filled with toiletry items such as toothbrushes, soaps and deodorant, non-perishables such as granola bars and dried fruit as well as practical items such as a pen and notepad. These items are small but are valuable to someone with few resources on the streets.
Barakah in a Bag!
Insha Allah this project will not only allow us to be productive members in the service of our local communities but also bring barakah or blessings into our lives.
