Mashallah Akhi, wallahi it is totally heart breaking..
The existence of homeless people and beggars is an abomination, a stigma upon humanity.
It is revolting that such people should suffer such a fate just so the rich can have more at their expense
Imam Ali was very poor... he was the ultimate "emperor" of the Muslim Nation yet he continued to do menial jobs for the people...
Imagine that.. they used to get embarrassed seeing him carrying their buckets and the rocks while he is the CALIPHATE.. (Same applies to the rightly guided Caliphs)
He used to go hungry for days and once said: "if poverty was a man, I would have killed him"
"The greatest wealth is Wisdom; the greatest poverty is stupidity; the worst unsociable is that of vanity and self-glorification; and the best nobility of descent exhibits itself in politeness and in refinement of manner.
The next four things, my son, are: “Do not make friendship with a fool because when he will try to do you good he will do you harm; do not make a miser your friend because he will run away from you at the time of your dire need; do not be friendly with a vicious and wicked person because he will sell you and your friendship at the cheapest price and do not make friend of a liar because like a mirage he will make you visualize very near the things which lie at a great distance and will make you see at the great distance the things which are near to you”.
All the trillions spent on wars and destruction...just picture if it were spent on science, medicine, feeding and housing the hungry and the destitute...
And they blame God for their failures.
At the time of the final rightly guided Caliph (Omar Bin Abdul Al Aziz), when Islam was pure and unadulterated, "not one bird went hungry in the lands of the Muslims".. let alone human beings...
How many millions like this man above exist? and look at their generous nature... Subhan Allah
