I wanted to share this action with all, thinking this may motivate you do something like this in future. I met this rickshawpuller last year day before Eid. I was searching someone for whom I wanted to buy food as Zakat ul Fitr. And by Allah’s wish I got to ride on his rickshaw. We were three people. after sometime I noticed he is disabled to pull the rickshaw. He has lost one leg and some fingers from hands. Time was not passing for me that time, 30 minutes seemed 30 years to me.
Then after reaching I bought him food and wanted his contact number. He hasnt any number, so I gave my number. I wanted to arrange an alternate income source for him. Cause Allah knows how he was pulling rickshaw with one leg at this old age. when he needs to relux, rest.
After several months we abled to bought 2 rickshaw for him. which he will give for rent and run the family. We took his bond to utilize this help effectively. and he will be under observation. We may not have money, we may not have ability to help practically, but we can have a heart to help, we can have an intention to do something. Just look around for people who will make ur intention into reality.
I am working with CommunityAction. and after seeing these photos, prayer came from my heart for them who helped me to make my dream come true.
Just think- This man could be my father or your father ?
