HDAY is an important reminder that only Allah is Rich and Independent of all needs.
“O men! It is you, who stand in need of Allah, but Allah is one free of all wants, worthy of all praise”.
On HDAY, we remind each other that everyone is working together to satisfy some need that they have; the need to share, for food, to be heard, acknowledged, get a photo, and or receive a blessing. HDAY demonstrates the richness of God, our collective needs, and the responsibility to share what we have to uplift each other. This is the HDAY ecosystem and how we collectively stand together.
What we forget sometimes is that the most important members of the Coalition to Preserve Human Dignity that powers Humanitarian Day are those we serve walking through the line to receive gift bags; some voiceless, joblessness yet all honorable and hopeful.
