Ramadan 2015
عزیز بہنوں اور بھائیوں السلام علیکم!

الحمداللہ ایک بار پھر ماہِ مبارک کی آمد اور اس کی برکتوں ، رحمتوں اور فضیلتوں کا لطف اٹھانے کے لئے اللہ نے زندگی جیسی نعمت عطا کی ۔ ہر سال کی طرح اس بار بھی ماہِ مقدس کی برکت سے اللہ نے یہ ہمت وحوصلہ دیا کہ ان لوگوں کی بھی مدد کی جا سکے جو بنیادی ضرورتوں سے محروم ہیں ۔ اس سلسلے میں اس بار خاندان کے افراد کی تعداد کے حصاب سے دو مختلف رمضان پیکج تیار کئے ہیں جس کی تفصیل درج زیل ہے ۔ میں اس کارِ خیر میں ساتھ دینے والے لوگوں کے تعاون کی طلب گار ہوں ۔ آپ سب کا ساتھ اور اشتراک ہی اس نیک عمل کی کامیابی کا ضامن ہے اللہ ہم سب کو آسانیاں باٹنے کی توفیق عطا کرے (آمین)۔

آپ کے تعاون کی طلبگار

The 3 Rupee Lady – AsiaDespatch article

Pakistan is a country where despite the prevailing errs of society hope still exists. Parveen Saeed the owner of ‘Khana Ghar’ is an example of such hope in society. A resident of Surjani Town, heard news of a woman who had murdered her two children because she was unable to feed them, and could not bear to watch them slowly starve to death. This incident got Parveen thinking that surely there is enough food in Pakistan that no one need go hungry. With this motive and determination in 2002 Khana Ghar was launched. Khana Ghar is a small dhaba (hut like restaurant) in Khuda Ki Basti located in Karachi. This dhaba provides a full meal (one roti and saalan) to anyone who wants to eat for only 3 rupees.

Until recently Parveen had been funding the Khana Ghar herself, and with whatever intermittent donations she could get. But, like they saw good always prevails on the evils, many families and groups have now emerged and help her towards funding the project and ensuring its operations for the welfare of society.

NewsLine Interview: Parveen Saeed, Founder of Khana Ghar

Parveen Saeed is the founder of Khana Ghar, an outfit that provides heavily subsidised meals to the city’s poor.

The three-rupee meal served at Khana Ghar includes one roti and a plate of curry.

Essentially a housewife, Saeed was drawn to feeding the poor when she read the story of a local woman who killed her two children because she could not afford to feed them. She set up Khana Ghar in January 2002 and gradually drew in family, friends and others to help set up food houses and distribution points.

Saeed plans to continue devoting her life to this initiative and dreams of being able to feed everyone everywhere.

A soft-spoken, humble woman, who is usually seen wearing old, faded clothes, 52-year-old Saeed rarely ventures out without covering her head. She speaks in Urdu, and strains hard to understand English, answering the most difficult queries with a smile and a nod.

Saeed is reluctant to admit that she has done anything worthy of praise and recognition but, only recently, she was honoured by Timberland Pakistan’s Green Awards for her meritorious service.

Khana Ghar – Feeding the hungry (Blog by Kiran Ashraf on Unique Pakistan)

We are citizens of a third-world country where hunger is undoubtedly the worst weapon of mass destruction and is the cause of most evils. It doesn’t seem so to many of us because majority reading this have been blessed and never experienced the harsh atrocities of life. Good news is that we now posses the resources at hand to defeat this cruel enemy at a very reasonable cost and provide food for the hungry but sadly, no one comes forward to end this scourge of poverty.

أَرَأَيْتَ الَّذِي يُكَذِّبُ بِالدِّينِ ٥ فَذَلِكَ الَّذِي يَدُعُّ الْيَتِيمَ ٥ وَلَا يَحُضُّ عَلَى طَعَامِ الْمِسْكِينِ ٥ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلْمُصَلِّينَ ٥ الَّذِينَ هُمْ عَن صَلَاتِهِمْ سَاهُونَ ٥ الَّذِينَ هُمْ يُرَاءُونَ ٥ وَيَمْنَعُونَ الْمَاعُونَ

Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie? That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness, And does not urge (others) to feed the poor. So woe to the praying ones, Who are unmindful of their prayers, Who do (good) to be seen, And withhold the necessaries of life.


بھلا تم نے اس شخص کو دیکھا جو (روزِ) جزا کو جھٹلاتا ہے؟ یہ وہی (بدبخت) ہے، جو یتیم کو دھکے دیتا ہے۔ اور فقیر کو کھانا کھلانے کے لیے( لوگوں کو) ترغیب نہیں دیتا۔ تو ایسے نمازیوں کی خرابی ہے۔ جو نماز کی طرف سے غافل رہتے ہیں ۔ جو ریا کاری کرتے ہیں۔ اور برتنے کی چیزیں عاریتہً نہیں دیتے۔
