Abdullah bin Amr (ra) said, ’A man asked the Prophet, “What Islamic traits are the best?” The Prophet said, ”Feed the people, and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not know”’. [Bukhari]
Randpark Ridge Community Feeding Scheme
The Randpark Ridge Islamic Foundation has made charity one of its focal points of operation.
The Foundation currently manages a monthly ‘food parcel’ collection drive which involves the purchase and distribution of bulk vegetables and grocery packs to families in need.
The Foundation has a long-standing relationship with the families of Coronationville, Westbury, Chrisville, Eldorado Park, and Eikenhof. In addition, the Foundation also gives support to orphanages based in Lenasia, Maraisburg, and Kibler Park.
Over and above the collection of funds, the Foundation also collects used clothing for distribution to families in need. The drop-off point for clothing is the Randpark Ridge Musallah.
In Ramadaan, several deghs (large cooking pot) of haleem is distributed every Saturday from the premises of the Musallah. Iftar is provided every day throughout Ramadan, and bulk grocery packs are distributed to Muslim families in need.
On the day of Eid, at least, 122 deghs of food is distributed to several needy communities as Eid lunch.
