Poverty is a serious problem in the developing world. This is not the poverty where one could live simply with dignity. This is grinding poverty created by various in-humane reasons such as oppression and exploitation of economically less fortunate.  As a result large populations are now suffering to the extent where they are ready to do anything, even selling their own children. Under such circumstances, it becomes our moral responsibility to lend our hand to such people and help them learn skills which makes them economically strong and they can live with dignity.


Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "(Prophet) Zakariyya (PBUH) was a carpenter.'' (Sahih Muslim Vol. 2, Book 30, Number 5863)

Narrated Al-Miqdam The Prophet said, "Nobody has ever eaten a better meal than that whichone has earned by working with one's own hands. The Prophet of Allah, David used to eat from the earnings of his manual labor."
(Sahih Bukhari Vol. 3, Book 34, Number 286)
