“And they feed, for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive (Saying): “We feed you for the sake of Allah
alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.”
“We only fear from our Lord a Day, frowningly severe.” Therefore, Allah will guard them against the evil of that Day, and will grant over them a Light of Realty and a (blissful) joy.”
Holy Quran .Chapter 76. Verses 8-11
Our beloved Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w) was orphaned at a very early age. His father passed away when he wasn’t even born yet and his other passed away when he as still a young child. So, caring for orphans is very dear to the Prophets (s.a.w) heart. He further said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself ill be together in Paradise like this, and he (s.a.w) held his two fingers together to illustrate. ABSN has tried to assist where it can and when it can in uplifting the lives of orphans and widows. For babies, milk is provided until the child is old enough to wean off it, nappies and other items are collected and distributed where required for a certain time frame. Under the sponsorship scheme, orphans school fees are paid for in full. Widows are also assisted with food ration, medical, clothing, bedding and other items to help them get back on their feet again. They are encouraged to start a course or learn a skill for empowerment. The reward for helping those in need is immeasurable and we are encouraged to help anyone in need to the best of our ability.
“Whoever saves one (life), it is as if he had saved all of mankind.”
Holy Quran. Chapter 5 .Verse 32.
