The Ameerah of the Federation of Muslim Women’s Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN), Hajiya Kaltume Abubakar, has disclosed that the association fed 500 orphans in the state to celebrate Eid-el-Fitr festival.
Abubakar disclosed this on Monday, 24 April, 2023 in Jos, Plateau State capital that the gesture was to free people from hunger.
The Ameerah, who said that feeding the poor was an obligation that should be met by every capable Muslim, added that sadaqah was important, especially when done for the sake of Allah, and it had a way of giving one joy.
“It is not just a Sallah thing but something that should be done as a privilege to feed the hungry around us,” she said.
Abubakar added that the distribution of goods also gave the association an opportunity to address the youth to shun violence and immoral acts that would defile them.
She said the celebration was peaceful, to the glory of God.
