“The son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about five things: how he lived his life, and how he utilized his youth, with what means did he earn his wealth, how did he spend his wealth, and what did he do with his knowledge.” (Tirmidhi)
On Sunday, June 3rd, 901 Ummah had the honor of hosting a luncheon for families residing in the Ronald McDonald house located in Downtown Memphis.
The Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC) is a nonprofit organization, consisting of local chapters across the nation. Each chapter caters to the needs of the local community; in the case of the Memphis chapter, the Ronald McDonald center houses families of exclusively St. Jude patients.
At the house, the patients’ families are placed in their own rooms and are provided with the support and physical resources needed to endure these difficult times. These resources include food, shuttle services, living facilities, and lots more.
