The Open Kitchen: Ansar Club
‘And the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct—Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment’. [Qur’an, 9:100]
The Ansar (The Helpers) were the people from Medina who supported the Prophet (saw) and the Muhajirun (emigrants) when they migrated from Makkah to Medina. They opened up their homes and their hearts, giving away portions of their annual income, swathes of farm land, and the shirts on their backs and displayed true hospitality to their new guests.
Keep the legacy of the Ansar alive and open your hearts to your community. Help us provide a place for people to expel their hunger in a safe, warm environment.
Donate £30 per month to keep the kitchen open for the needy.
