  • How does one go about helping their community?

    :salams

    How does one go about helping their community? I'm a strong believer that a fractured community = more problems in the ummah. If we have a hard time spreading salams and only saying it to those we know and if we have an even harder time smiling and we don't know what is happening to our neighbours, then its clear why we have so many problems. Despite saying that we love our brothers and sisters, we really only care about ourselves.

    So, what can one do to help their community become stronger and feel more united and homey?
    وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
    "And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad concerning Me, then answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright."
    Surah al-Baqarah ayah 186
    [2:186]

    Ask at the local mosque and or community centre what needs they have. Their are many projects they are involved in and can direct you to helping in what ever capacity you can.

      The best way is to act as a model yourself and take the small steps.

      Follow all the things the Prophet (PBUH) did and said you should do such as taking care of neighbors, etc.

      When people see you they will get motivated. Actions have a very loud impact on people.
