Surah Al-Insan says: And they are those who give food in spite of their own need , to the needy, and the orphan, and the captive, [saying in their hearts], We only feed you for the sake of God, and we desire nothing in return from you, not even a word of thanks (76:8-9).
AARON & MARGARET WALLACE FOUNDATION, (AMWF) would like to wish you all the BEST! May ALLAH accept your good deeds and grant you and your families forgiveness.
وَجَعَلْنَا لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَعَايِشَ وَمَن لَّسْتُمْ لَهُ بِرَازِقِينَ
Wa ja-‘alnaa lakum fiihaa ma-‘aa-yisha wa mal-las-tum lahuu bi-raa-ziqiin.
20. and provided thereon means of livelihood for you (O men) as well as for all (living beings), whose sustenance does not depend on you.
Surah Ar – Ra’d, 13:26
اللّهُ يَبْسُطُ الرِّزْقَ لِمَنْ يَشَاء وَيَقَدِرُ وَفَرِحُواْ بِالْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا فِي الآخِرَةِ إِلاَّ مَتَاعٌ
’Al-laahu yabsutur-Rizqa limay-yashaa-u’ wa yaq-dir. Wa farihuu bil-ha-yaatid-dunyaa. Wa mal-hayaatud-dunyaa fil-’Aakhi-rati ’il-laa mataa‘-
26. God grants abundant sustenance, or gives it in scant measure, unto whomever He wills; and they (who are given abundance) rejoice in the life of this world – even though, as compared with the life to come, the life of this world is naught but a fleeting pleasure.
In Hadith al Qudsi, Allah (swt) says:
“Oh! Son of Adam! If Almighty Allah has taken the responsibility of providing your sustenance then why are your efforts directed exclusively towards it?
And if all fortunes and misfortunes are from Me, then why are you impatient.
So, you should not be disappointed when you love something and should be so happy when you gain something from this world.”
AARON & MARGARET WALLACE FOUNDATION (AMWF), with the long lines of people getting the necessary sustenance for living, you all have witnessed the incredible success of the “Jumaah Free Food Farmers Market”, Lunch, Flowers and Pastries Program at the Berkeley Masjid!
AMWF expanded this year to accommodate more people at the Masjid, over 300 families weekly, with twice the quantity, a higher quality, much healthier, more expensive and fresher product that was purely the blessings of God.
As the year ended, our annual accounting reveals that AMWF donated over $430,000 worth of food on just the 21 “Jumaah Free Food” days at that Masjid so far this year with one more day left!!
Mind you this total DOES NOT include the nights of Ramadan, Eid, and every other weekly giveaways that we have had there!
But unless the Masjid can take the ongoing program over as we have asked since we started it, we will have to
cut back severely because we do not get enough help physically, or financially to continue as it is. We would love to transition to a group from the Masjid ASAP and that can be done with few obstacles and make this the Masjid’s program as we had intended all the time. CAN YOU HELP THOSE IN NEED PRAYING NEXT TO YOU???!!
