KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 20 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Saturday called on Muslims to do more charity work to ensure their well-being not only in this world but also in the hereafter.
"We should perform good deeds for the society because the aid will help not only those affected but also ourselves in this world and in the hereafter," he said when presenting educational aid to orphans from the Titiwangsa parliamentary constituency and Masjid Al-Jamiul Badawi in Kepala Batas and and Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru here.
He said helping people and doing good deeds made one a good person.
Abdullah also called on Muslims to bring back the glory days of Islam so that they could be on par with the other races of the world in all fields.
The Educational Aid for Orphans Scheme was introduced to help orphans from congregations in the Titiwangsa constituency and the two mosques until the age of 21.
Abdullah presented the scheme's policy certificates to 23 selected orphans at Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru. A total of 373 orphans will receive the policy.Related Articles:
