ALLAH says in Qu'ran “Your Lord has commanded that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reach old age with you, do not say to them a word of disrespect, or scold them, but say a generous word to them. And act humbly to them in mercy, and say, ‘My Lord, have mercy on them since they cared for me when I was small” Qur'an (17: 23-24).
Hadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad PBUH)
Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "He is not of us who does not have mercy on young children, nor honor the elderly" (Al-Tirmidhi).
In the light of Qur'an and Hadith, we at FMCS we strive to include our elders and offer a series of activities designed with them in mind. Our program is designed to bring the elders of the Muslim community together in a laid back, low impact environment. This program shall be designed to enhance community spirit and to show respect and reverence for our elders. The first phase of this program helps provide transportation for our elders to the masjid and for Jummah (Friday) prayers. Subsequently, we will be including other programs based on our elder’s community needs and feedback.
