The Welfare Secretary of the society, Alhaji AbdurRahman Olarinde said it had become the tradition of NASFAT to always remember those who “are in need regardless of racial and religious differences.”

This is in line with the commandment of Allah as contained in Q22 verse 36.

Corroborating the Welfare Secretary, the Chief Missioner of NASFAT, Imam Abdul-Azeez Morufu Onike, stated that “Muslims are enjoined by Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to always remember those that are less fortunate.”

“None of you will have faith till he wishes for his brother what he likes for himself.”

Onike advised Nigerians to be their brothers’ keepers and show kindness and compassion to the less privileged.
