Fruits of Feeding the Hungry
Feeding people in general and a hungry person in particular has been explicitly mentioned in the command of the Messenger of Allah (may Allah exalt his mention). Abu Moosa Al-Ash‘ari (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah exalt his mention) said: "Feed the hungry, pay a visit to the sick and free the captives." A reported saying reads, "The best charity is to satisfy a hungry person." Alas, a Muslim may sit at an Iftar table with delicious and tasty dishes while his neighbors break their fast with a few morsels of food, if they can be found! This article titled, Fruits of Feeding the Hungry, shows how great is giving food in charity and for the cause of Allah.
