HAWTHORNE, NJ – On Saturday, March 20, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Center located at 131 Wagaraw Road held their food pantry event in conjunction with Humanity First. The center’s Youth Auxiliary oversaw the event which served 97 families, an increase of ten from the previous food distribution, according to Ahmed Khawaja the North Jersey Chapter’s Director of Public Affairs.
“Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said ‘one of the seven groups of people that will be granted shade on the Day of Judgment includes the one who gives charity but hides it, so that even his left hand does not know what his right hand has spent’,” Khawaja said.
