“Do not turn away a poor man … even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you … God will bring you near Him on the Day of Resurrection.”
Islam was introduced to Vietnam around the 10th century by Indian and Middle Eastern traders. Today, there are approximately 100,000 Muslims in Vietnam, the majority of whom are Cham ethnic minorities. Cham Muslims, as an ethnic and religious minority, are frequently forgotten and rarely noticed by the rest of the world. They are impoverished and have few ties to the Ummah.
Muslims in Vietnam are dispersed throughout the country; some live and work in cities, while others live in small towns or rural areas. As a result, the majority of Muslims in An Giang Province have very low incomes and rely solely on allowances from their children who drop out of school to work and support their families.
Alhamdulillah last year we could be with our Muslim brothers and sisters in Vietnam to provide iftar meals to thousands of elderly, orphans, poor and disabled people. We were so grateful to find them and got the chance to provide assistance and help throughout Ramadan. This year we would like to invite you to join us to stand with the minority Muslims in Vietnam so they can enjoy a better Ramadan.
