With an area of ”meters by meters”, Al-Khair Kitchen began in Al-Moneeb three years ago, as a charity idea that “Nahla Jamal” honors the memory of her late father, feeding the poor and the afflicted, and giving reward to his soul, and when the Corona crisis began, she developed the idea to prepare food for the affected families as a form of assistance and support.
Nahla starts her daily journey from six in the morning until five in the evening, during which she is busy preparing, packing and cooking food, and she says to “The Seventh Day”: The idea of the kitchen came to me after the death of my father because of my great love for it. I was thinking about how to help him and make him happy after his departure. I thought a lot. There was no other way than the kitchen to complete the journey of Baba, may God have mercy on him, because Baba was always a benefactor and we grew up in goodness, so I wanted to complete the journey with love, praise be to God. .
And she continued, “In the beginning, I worked alone with a few meals as much as I could, but after a while we started getting to know the good and the beloved ones began to help us and provide full support. At that time, I was very happy that the good will grow and many people will rejoice with us. Then I thought that I would rent a place and it would be dedicated to goodness only. I actually took a small apartment and the kitchen is a meter small.” In meters, but a million times better and very simplistic.

And she added: The kitchen of goodness is not just for eating. But we have many people who meet with us in a bridal apparatus or treatment, and thank God we are not all late with the support of the good people. We have prepared 22 brides, and frankly, I do not do good alone. They help a lot, but preparing food and cooking with the help of the needy Umm Muhammad, she is six good with me for 3 years, She is my right-hand man, frankly, she helps me in everything, even the distribution does not leave me alone.

She explained: There are very many people who call me and ask me to feed people on the street, and I got to know in the area the name of Nahla Btaat Al-Khair, and frankly, this is the most joyful thing for me because the goodness of our Lord, and these beautiful deeds, our Lord, made me the cause of it and the goodness of my good luck. Nahla says: Today, from 6 am, I start preparing vegetables and meat, and my day begins very normally, and I know how to balance between my home and the kitchen.
She continued: For a while I got tired and had a stroke. It was very rare for me to do it, but by the grace of our Lord and the supplications of the good, I got up and knew how to walk on my feet.

And she continued, “In the beginning, many people asked me to be enough to get tired, but I refused and I was trying to stand up, thank God, our Lord is generous, and I knew I would go back to work, and in fact, the fatigue was more when I was not in the kitchen, as soon as I went to the kitchen, it remained fine and may God heal me.”
She continued: Despite the difficulties, thank God I was able and will stay in the kitchen of goodness until the end of life. And I wanted to say a message to the frustrated: I take the reward from our Lord, and I do not expect anything from the servant. If you are unable to support, do not disappoint others.
