  1. Allahu Akbar, may his gentle soul continue to rest in peace ameen. Alhamdulillah, am highly inspired infact am just thinking of how to emulate this great man of God, infact am totally energized and highly motivated if I most confessed. Jazakallahu kyair ya Ruhee.

    • Edhi achieved so much and helped so many people in his life time. He really taught us that life is not measured by the number of years we live but by the number of lives we touch.

  2. Thank you so much for the article. Truly inspiring. May Allah s.w.t. grant him highest ranks in Jannah. Ameen.

    Lots of love, respect and prayers from India. :)

  3. SubhanAllah…unblevble a man like him walked the earth in age like this.. without doubt he was an angel of mercy…!! May Allah accept it n help us render atleast a lil of the great task he accomplished..

  4. Assalamou aleikoum warahmatoulillahi wabaragattahou. l am really very happy to have had the wonderful biagraphy of Saikh. I am also very much influenced by his mode of life. Everyone of us who comes across your article if only we give attention to what we hear or see can try to imitate this beautiful and useful way of life for this world and Akira. Douas.

    • Absolutely…praising Edhi is one thing but emulating his way of life and furthering his mission is what we should do. He was an exemplary Muslim who showed us how to touch the lives of others, not through preaching but through actions.

  5. As salaam alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barkatuhu.
    A very inspiring article Mashallah. I nearly wept when I read this, subhanallah what a great soul he was. May Allah SWT grant him Jannatul Firdous and accept all his good deeds, Ameen. Reading this has taught me a lesson today on being so simple and yet so great !!! I want to do something like him one day too inshallah , serving the humanity is the noblest job on earth and may Allah SWT develop the humble spirit of Edhi in all of us. Jazaak Allah Khair for such a beautiful and truly inspiring article. I am going to read it everyday inshallah to get inspired by this noble soul.

    • May Allah keep us all motivated to do good and give us perseverance to improve our lives and of those around us. Allah says in Quran:

      For each [religious following] is a direction toward which it faces. So race to [all that is] good. Wherever you may be, Allah will bring you forth [for judgement] all together. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent (Al Baqarah: 148).

      Edhi was a living example of how we must compete with each other to do good. After all life is short!

  6. He was one in a million may Allah bless him and find many other people to carry on with his great work I wish I had met him makes my heart smile with what a great man. Allah gives him a good place in Jannat ameen

  7. Salam
    There is a lot of poverty in Pakistan and I believe that if all the rich people of Pakistan come together with the sincere intention to remove this poverty they can. As for me I will try my best to help whoever I am able to within my means. I pray to Allah to make me so rich that I can built masajids which give free Islamic and worldly education, accomodation and meet the students needs effectively. Inshallah. We should set up more of such foundations like edhi to help the oppressed, sick, weak, abandoned and lost. May Allah guide us all to do good as long as we live.Ameen

    • One good way is to help the existing setups like that of Edhi. There are lots of lots of them in Pakistan. We should volunteer for them, donate to them them on regular basis, and advocate for them where ever possible.

  8. Subhan Allah amazing personality and doing all this to please Allah swt. May Allah give him Jannatul firdous. Ameen.
    Very inspiring article. Jazak Allah khair.

  9. This morning i opened my email and first read Edhi’s story of social welfare activities in pakistan. I read his struggle,sacrifice,
    Dedication, salvation and a good motivation to Hakkul Ibadah. While reading my eyes were wet. I got inspired and motivated to do welfare works for human. I pray for Edhi’s to Allah. Thanks to productive muslims for publish this real story.

  10. Salam, very inspiring article May Allah shower His blessing on his grave. Wish his son or colleagues carry on his work ameen.

  11. Maash’Allah, may Allah accept his good deeds and forgive his shortcomings. Indeed this is a challenge to all of us. Where are we in serving humanity? In this modern society filled with satanic ideologies such as “survival for the fittest” , “every man on his own” people have been deluded into neglecting others forgetting the prophet’s teachings such as; “the best of men is the most beneficial to men”. may Allah protect us fill us with courage to stand firm amidst all these satanic waves. Ameen

  12. Assalam o alikum.
    May Allah give him Jannatul firdous. Ameen. Really he was a great personality. Jazak Allah khair for such a nice informative article.

  13. This made me cry. May his legacy remain forever and may his final place be in Jannat al Firdaws for eternity, Allahumma ameen.

  14. Asalaam o Alaiykum Warehmatullahi wabarakatahu to all, I pray to Allah SWT the Most Gracious the Most Merciful and May Allah SWT bless Rasool SAW his family and companions as He blessed Ibrahim AS his family and his companions. Subhan’Allah Alhamdolillah what a touching article written on such a beautiful personality. I had heard of him once and didn’t know much about him, however I pray to THE ALMIGHTY for Edhi to accept his deeds and may He give Sabr to his family and reward them for their patience. This is a truly inspiring article and Insha’Allah I too pray and hope to do my best for humanity whenever I get the chance, whether it be a smile, support or donation. May He make us humble and sincere in our offerings as their is no greater riches than seeing the smile and relief and contentment on another as we are all one Ummah of SAW and if we don’t help one another who will……….. Ya Rabbil’Alamin I pray to you that we help each other and May you put Barakah in our lives so we can achieve so much in the little time we do have. Ameeeeen Thumma Ameeen

  15. Jazakallahu khair brother for sharing productive article about “Abdul Sathar Edhi “. Indeed, his motive was to be prductive all the time serving the needy through social work.
    May Allah rest his soul in peace. And wishing more and more success for Edhi Foundation. By Allah’s grace , we have started small foundation group serving the needy of our town.
    Alhamdulillah , we succeeded in 3 projects. Insha Allah, very soon we are planning defining clear scope, work involved etc etc to serve our Muslim Ummah.

    Really, great motivation to move forward and with the “Role Model ” as Abdul Sathar Edhi, we sure success in our life in this world & hereafter.

    “The deeds are considered by the intentions, and a person will get the reward according to his intention…” [Sahih Bukhari]

    Very true that, intention of Edhi was ” The real purpose is to gain the pleasure of Allah”. May Allah give strength to perform more and more good deeds & be productive throughout our entire life. Ameen. May Allah grant him Jannatul Firdous. Ameen Ya Rabbal Alameen.

  16. Masha Allah,
    What a Great Man of God.

    Jazakumullahu khairan.

  17. What a great story. I pray that his work is continued with the same passion and dedication as he did it himself. May Allah bring out these qualities in us and our children.

  18. Subhanallah! How inspiring. May Allah bestow his mercy on him and May his life serve as a source of guidance and steadfastness for us all.

  19. Subhanallah truely inspiring, may Allah have me mercy on him and accepr his good deeds and pardon him for his shortcomings. May Allah bless him the highest jannah.

  20. AssalamuAlaikum,
    Mashallah, I’m in awe and speechless, not so sure how can I say this, it’s interesting that a noble person like Abdul Sattar Edhi existed in a world full of vanity, narcism, etc. May Allah grants tawfiq in dunya and akhira.

  21. “EDHI ” he is the symbol of love , affection , & sacrifice .His story that carries many life lessons for all of us. May ALLAH rest his soul in peace ! (amen)
