Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him, called on us to serve our local neighbors irrespective of religious identity. He also reminded us that 'even a smile is sadaqah.' With our messenger's words and generous example as a guide, it's our time to re-commit to all kinds of sadaqah towards all our neighbors, sharing random acts of generosity and a simple message: "Love, Your Muslim Neighbor." Why?
Because we must respond to hate with love.
Because Muslim giving is powerful.
Because no person ever became poor by giving.
How It Works:
Think About: Where are unexpected spaces or places we can spread kindness and generosity? How might we surprise and delight our neighbors and community on a daily basis?
Maybe a group of you makes bag lunches and distributes them to the homeless, sharing a note and our logo inside the brown bag.
Maybe you decide to keep a stack of our note cards in your car, and you pay for your neighbor's coffee or gas.
Maybe your son or daughter mows your neighbor's lawn for free and leaves a note in their mailbox.
The possibilities are endless. Plan something big in a group, or do something small daily on your own. We can share the same message in millions of ways. Spread sadaqah today starting today.
Use our template. Personalize your greeting.
Being a charitable and generous neighbor in America is more important today then it ever has been.
