    I think as educated individuals we need to contribute actively towards this country’s economy. We need to find such individuals who are willing to work hard, and put their sweat and blood into something. We are all too willing to contribute Zakat and Sadqah, but hardly find the time to actually check how these people are faring, or whether they need additional help.

    Rather than giving Zakat and Sadqah as immediate consumables, it would be better if the money went into establishing a small business for someone.

    Good job by the author. Recommend
