Poverty is one of the major social problems in Pakistan. A large portion of population is living in villages, slums and streets, and is earning their livelihood below the poverty line. They are underprivileged, leading a life where there is no money, less education, lack of sanitation facilities, food and safe drinking water and no proper houses. Many poor people don’t beg because they feel humiliated. In such conditions, people are deprived of their basic necessities of life. Poverty leads to problems like child labor and crime which are passed on to the next generations.
Prophet Muhammad PBUH said: "Protect yourself from hell-fire even by giving a piece of date as a charity.”(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
