Today was one of the best Thanksgiving of my life so far. By the Grace of God, the Muslim community of Reno and Sparks, Nevada, hosted the homeless, the needy and some of our neighbors for a great Thanksgiving dinner. It reminded me of what Islam is all about: helping those in need and sharing the best of what we have with them. Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “A believer is not the one who eats his fill when his neighbor is hungry” (Al-Bukhari, Al-Hakim, and Al-Baihaqi).
Here are some pictures of the Thanksgiving meal at our mosque:
