Alhamdulilah we were gifted with a halal and free range turkey from Scatterbrook in farm in Essex, one of the few halal and free range farms that can trace it’s poultry from chicks and doesn’t stun the animals before slaughter.This beautiful bird was too big for us to eat so we decided to share.Alhamdulilah.
We were also presented with 2 freshly killed rabbits that fomed part of a tradtional paella to accompany the bird.We made 30 meals,10 meals more than we anticipated from Morocan roast turkey and rabbit and sea food paella.
Last night was freezing for those with no warm memories, last night was minus 1 degree, can you imagine sleeping outside in that ?And that’s exactly what the people we met last night on the street did, when we saw some of them asleep in doorways and subways, wrapped up so tight they didnt even wake up as we left food and drinks beside their sleeping bags.Something has to be done to meet the deep needs in the heart of these people, may Allah make it easy for us to be the ones to forfill these needs in a way that is pleasing to Him ameen
Alhmdulilair, last night was amazing…… can you imagine cooking food with love, with the intention to share, not being sure if that intention will be manifest but still seeking refuge in Allah because its the only way.I felt like Blade as we descended into the subways looking for the miskin/poor needy…SISTARS IT IS NOT ADVISABLE THAT YOU DO THIS ALONE,WE HAVE GOOD FEARLESS LIONS WITH US MAASHALLAH ALHMDULILAH.To feed the needy, to share out food with those in need.
Making duaas and doing our qulls for protection and when those duaas are answered and the intention to please Allah is manifest by Allah’s assistance then and only them you know that Allah is using you as a tool for good, tears in my eyes as I write this alhmdulilah rabeel alameen, its an honour mashallah.
