Quran Verse:
Koonoo ansarallah
Be helpers of Allah 61:14

Lesson Introduction:
Allah is Al Qadir, the Most Powerful. He can do anything, and he doesn't need anyone. But in the Qur'an, Allah asks us to be his helpers. He gives us the opportunity to work for him, and become close to him. What an honour to be a helping hand for Allah!

The helpers of Allah, serve the creation. They share the blessings Allah has given them, to help and be useful to those around them. They help to make the world a kinder, more peaceful place.
Serving the creation is a way of serving Allah. We shouldn’t expect anything from those we help. Our actions are only to please Allah.
When we share the blessings of Allah with those around us, our manners show people what a beautiful religion Islam is.
