This is a post from the Facebook page of Shebby Gujjar Khan at Zeeshan & Co. Certified Accountants in Levenshulme. The tags haven’t transferred from Facebook but the message is still clear.
“Following the recent deaths and media news on the deaths in the city centre, i decided to make what little change i could myself.
I set about posting on facebook if people wanted to donate good quality clothing or accessories to help keep the homeless warm in these freezing cold weathers. The fact that i am within a 5 mile radius, was not sitting well with me.
I am a young british muslim, born and bred in Manchester. As a Muslim first and foremost, giving welfare to the poor and needy is one of our five pillars of Islam. The main stream media don’t show you the work and contribution of muslims throughout the U.K, so i will therefore use my own facebook platform to spread peace, love and togetherness.
No matter what race or religion a person is, it is our duty for the sake of mankind to help one another, when in need.
We set up 3 drop off points in Levenshulme, Zeeshan & Co Certified Accountants, GFones; Hamza Newton and Tyreworx Amer Ak Imran Akhtar, where people dropped off clothes or we went to collect.
We went out into Manchester City Centre on Saturday night, to distribute warm items of clothing and blankets and hot food courtesy of Al Latif. An inspirational brother who is doing a great job, feeding the homeless at nights. Another brother who has been a great inspiration is Bax Martin as well as my father Rasib Khan Accountants, a leader and the best of role models.
Great job by Hassan Sohail, Jibby Hussain, Adam Murtaza who were a great support with distributing the clothes. Natalie Sadik did a great collection of clothes. Thank you Nattie Lewin.
Life is all about trying to do good and inspire others around you.
We take so much for granted in this life in the luxuries of our own homes.
