The Muslim owner of a restaurant in Buckinghamshire will be opening the doors to the homeless on Christmas day with the offer of a meal, clothes and a haircut for those who want to take advantage of the service.
And Muslims in Cardiff have opened a food bank service, We Feed, offering food parcels to needy families.
Usman Majid, owner of The Grill restaurant in Buckinghamshire said, “I think people resonate with that, there’s community spirit, it doesn’t matter where you’re from or what your background is, when it comes to charity and doing good things, people just want to help and get involved.”
Given the huge volume of negative media coverage Muslims generally receive, it is great to see their efforts in helping others and community building also receive some media attention.
