POSTED ON May 30th  - POSTED IN About Us

As-Suffa is an aptly named organisation to instigate a project tackling homelessness in the local community. For As’haab us-Suffa (People of the Bench) resided on the veranda of the Prophet’s Masjid (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) in the City of Madinah, and comprised of the poor, the unemployed, emancipated slaves, and/or members of the community with no family.  Many of these companions chose to dedicate their lives in the servitude of Allah Azzawajjal and His Apostle (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam). This part of the Masjid housed some of the most illustrious Companions including the likes of Abu Hurairah, a renowned narrator of Hadith; Bilal ibn Rabah, the first Muedhin in the history of Islam; and Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, a great Sahabi whose knowledge of the Qur’an was acknowledged by the Prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallam). May Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta’ala, be pleased with them all. Providing for the homeless is thus not just a moral responsibility, it also fulfils the obligation of following in the footsteps of the Beloved Prophet (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam)
