the Supply of attention to poor in world financial crisis

Financial crisis of world is the top news of media theses days. Who can express that he is happy of that? Even Iran which is enemy of U.S. government cannot say that. Hashemi Rafasanjani said last week: “this crisis threats our goals in world.” What are those goals? We don’t like seeing the calamity of people. Workers will hire from companies, etc.

The “economic tsunami” can sharply increase poverty and hunger worldwide, raise number of the poor and hungry people, encouraging growth in the unemployment rate. Rafsanjani said.

In the result of this crisis, the goods especially foods prices will increase. Rich people can buy something and continue their normal life, but poor persons will merge in their calamity and will miss more money. So they are the real victims of crisis. This point is something that governments should attend to. This is a threat for societies that they will have more poor persons.

Social affect of Ramdhan

One of the social affect of fasting is making equality between different classes of society.. in a routine life, people, usually, cannot realize the hardship of hunger, so they don’t motive to help poor people. Fasting help us to perceive hungry‘s hardship and help them. The Iranian literary, Onsorol-Ma’ali said: “the biggest duty of fasting is: Give to poor whatever you didn’t eat during day, so the benefit of suffering appears.”

 

One of the prays that Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) recommended reading it after every prayer in Ramadhan is:

اللهم أدخِل علي أهلِ القُبُورِ السُّرُور، اللهم أغنِ كلَّ فقير، اللهم أشبِع كلَّ جائع، اللهم اكسُ كلَّ عُريان، اللهم اقضِ دَينَ كلِّ مَدين، اللهم فَرِّج عن كلِّ مَكروب، اللهم رُدَّ كلَِّ غَريب، اللهم فُكَّ كلِّ أسير، اللهم أصلِح كلَّ فاسِدٍ مِن أمورِ المُسلِمين، اللهم اشفِ كلَّ مَريض، اللهم سُدَّ فَقرَنا بِغِناك، اللهم غَيِّر سُوءَ حالِنا بحُسنِ حالِك، اللهم اقضِ عنّا الدَّين، و أغنِنا من الفَقر، إنَّكَ علي كلِّ شيءٍ قَدير.

This pray (doa) includes 14 requests from God. 13 requests refer to social problems that show specific attention of Islam to society.

 

That last point is the issue of Zakate-Fetreh that is Vajeb in Islamic commands. Muslims should pay it to poor people.

 

In advance, I congratulate Eyde-Fetr to all Muslim brothers.
