Leaders & Heroes – Edhi

10 Jun
2007

I recently finished reading this man’s biography – absolutely stunning what lengths he goes to help people. Read about Edhi on Wikipedia, and read about his foundation.

A choice quote form Wikipedia:

His son Faisal once stated that when the Foundation was setting up in Afghanistan, local staff had purchased chairs for guests and the press when a new center was being opened, when Edhi arrived he was furious because the money that was spent on the chairs could have been used to help people, that night he slept on the clinic floor with the ambulance drivers.

Hey Ahmed,

Thanks for sharing, Dr. Edhi is definitely an inspiration and role model who we can all learn from.

His selflessness is absolutely stunning in this ‘me-me’ world.

This is what something that I believed on. When you donate something to the poor or people who needs or mosque you will get back more money from any source.

These are good true verified words(sahih muslim) from our Prophet:
