brothe ashiq........this is not development of any country whereby women have to toil at menial jobs, fight off male harassment,e.t.c just because fate made her a widow.In such a situation any government must give such widows and orphans monetary help and create the tools of knowledge for the orphans. May ALLAH have mercy on all the widows and orphans. Wonder what the khalifa Omar r.a would have said or done on seeing the plight of such women and orphans.

An often repeated incidence in our society,which is as old as the land.I remember my father and his siblings were raised single handedly by their mother,no one to help her..Such women are left to toil for years,till there backs bend .Where are the filthy rich people of pakistan?Where is your conscience and Islam?
