In expounding the One Humanity spirit in mankind, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) stated in the following Hadith:
«الْخَلْقُ عِيَالُ اللَّهِ، فَأَحَبُّ النَّاسِ إِلَى اللَّهِ مَنْ أَحْسَنَ إِلَى عِيَالِهِ»
“The creation of Allah is the family of Allah. The most beloved in the sight of Allah is he who is most kind to the creation of Allah.” (Mu’jamul Awsat by Imam At-Tabrani 5/356 Darul Haramain).
The establishment of the One Humanity Welfare Organization to serve mankind in general. Our concern for the welfare and development for fellow human beings should be motivated by our love for Allah and the family feeling for all human beings. The concern and plight of the underprivileged people should be felt through our hearts. True humanity is when the next person’s happiness is more important than our own happiness.
We are well aware of the dark clouds of homelessness, poverty and hunger of the people in Malawi. As a rainbow Ummah, our contributions will create a rainbow of hope and inspiration in the dark clouds of homelessness, poverty and hunger in Malawi.
We should also be cognizant of the devastating effect of poverty leading the vulnerable people of Malawi to kufr by external forces. If we are unable to change the direction of the wind of Kufr, the least we could do is change the sails of Iman for the vulnerable people of Malawi to freely maintain their Iman and practice on Islam.
I appeal to the Ummah at large to make their general contributions to One Humanity and experience the emotional, psychological and spiritual benefits of alleviating the worldly and religious plight of the people of Malawi. Let your heart be there when you are called.
Your contribution will indeed be an expression of being part of One Humanity with eternal rewards by Allah in this world and the hereafter.
