Distribution of Blanket to poor by Minhaj Interfaith and Welfare Foundation Kolkata @ Howrah,WB.
Clothing the poor is a sunnah of our Beloved Prophet (peace be upon him).
Hadrat Bilal (Radiyallahu Anhu) was asked, “How did the Messenger of God spend his money?”
He said, “Whenever he had anything, I was the one to whom it was entrusted-from the time he was raised up by God until he departed this world-. He was such that, if an individual came to him, submissively, and he saw that he was lacking clothing, he would give me the command, and I would borrow money with which to purchase a cloak and clothe him in it, and feed him…” (Abu Dawud, Sunan (The Book of Tribute, Ruling, Spoils (Kitab Al-Kharaj Wa Al-Imara Wa Al-Fai’), chapter on ‘The Ruler accepts the gifts of Polytheists’), vol. 3, p. 498, Hadith #3050.)
MIWF Kolkata team is carrying out distribution of 1500 blankets in 10 different areas after shortlisting poor families in the respective areas.
