When Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him) came to Madinah, the first message that was narrated by Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him) after leaving Makkah not voluntarily but was forced to leave. Everyone was contemplating upon what the first message will be, will it be the revenge against Quraysh?
No, but it was the message of spread peace, feed people and perform ibadah at night where nobody can see you.
So in this very Ummah we could see even after 14 centuries there are people spreading this message of peace and feeding hungry people, and as our efforts to teach our children about the importance of food and serving which is the main message of this very religion, we welcomed the effort of some great people that have assembled this Kitchen Bus that will feed thousands of refugees, we were much grateful for their visit especially the children who asked many questions.
In this we remember the Hadith of Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him) which is, ”My Ummah is like rain, we don’t know which part of the rain is the reason of Khayr, is it the beginning or the end”.
