PALEMBANG. The Prophet Muhammad -peace be upon him- said: “Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises.” He was then asked: “From what do we give charity every day?” The Prophet answered: “The doors of goodness are many…enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one’s legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one’s arms–all of these are charity prescribed for you.” He also said: “Your smile for your brother is charity.” Narrated ‘Aisha [Prophet Mohammed’s wife] -may Allah be pleased with her- : “I never saw the Prophet laughing to an extent that one could see his palate, but he always used to smile”.
To create more smiles in Indonesia, RZ organized free health care service for infant, toddler, and elderly in Mawar Local health Post (Posyandu) located in Lorong KH Umar Seberang Ulu 1, Palembang. To optimize the program, RZ fielded 5 medical experts consisted of doctor, midwife, pharmacist, and posyandu cadres.
In this action, they provided general health examination, weighing for infant and toddler, supplementary food, blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, and uric acid checking. In this opportunity, they successfully served 80 beneficiaries.
Free health care action is one of RZ’s programs which are always waited by Seberang Ulu’s residents. “We’d like to say thank to RZ and donors who have provided this free health care service,” Kholijah (65), a beneficiary, said. ***
