Langar Taqseem

Langar Taqseem

Langar is the term used for distributing food amongst the poor and destitute people of society. Feeding the hungry and helping the poor is an integral part of the Islamic faith. Throughout the Holy Qur’an and hadiths, the Muslim is called to feed the hungry and help those in need, regardless of race, religion or background. It is reported in a hadith that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Feed the hungry, visit the sick, and set free the captives.” Islam advocates feeding the hungry, regardless of race, religion or background. It is such an important part of the religion that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said a person is not really a Muslim if he goes to bed satiated while his neighbour goes hungry. Throughout the Holy Qur’an, Allah compares believers and disbelievers by how they treat those who are hungry. The Qur’an states, “(The righteous are those) who give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive, [Saying], ‘We feed you only for the countenance of Allah. We wish not from you reward or gratitude.’ On the contrary, the disbelievers will endure the punishment of the Hell Fire saying, ‘Nor did we used to feed the poor.’” We at Khatam Shareef offer Langar Taqseem services all over Lahore. The daig is distributed at the Mazar/Dargah from the available list or at a place of your choice in Lahore.

Follow the Sunnah to feed others

Langar refers to the food distributed to feed the poor and needy people of society. Giving food is an important part of being a Muslim, and not doing so is mentioned as a quality of the disbelievers. In Islam, the virtue of feeding the poor has been mentioned many times in the Quran, regardless of their religion, race, or background.

The messenger of Allah, Muhammad (PBUH), always urged us to provide food to the hungry and help those in need. These good deeds not only save us from hellfire but promise countless blessings and rewards in this life and the hereafter.

“Worship Ar-Rahman, feed others, spread (the greeting) of peace, and you will enter Paradise with security.” [Tirmidhi] .

The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would always go out of his way to follow the Sunnah of Allah. One such Sunnah is to feed the hungry.

He (PBUH) is known to have said, “Feed the hungry, free the captives, and pay a visit to the sick.”

One Hadith narrates, “Whoever feeds someone hungry will have his sins forgiven.”

On another occasion, the Prophet (PBUH) said, “The best of you are those who feed others.”

These hadiths highlight the importance of feeding the hungry in Islam and always encourage Muslims to do so and reap Sadaqah Jariyah rewards for it.


Earn rewards from Allah

Abu Abd Allah (a.s) is known to have said:

“Whoever feeds a hungry believer, Allah will feed him with the fruits of paradise; and any believer who quenches the thirst of another believer, Allah will quench his thirst with an exquisite drink of paradise; and any believer who clothes another believer will remain under the guard and protection of Allah as long as a shred of it remains.”

In Quran, Allah mentioned that those who feed the needy will be among the companions of the right and will inherit Jannah.

Considering all of this, we must contribute to feeding the poor and also encourage our friends and family to do so. It will bring a positive change in our spiritual and mental well-being while promising countless rewards in the hereafter (Insha’Allah).
