Giving clothes to the poor on umrah - punjabi tradition??
I got an old Punjabi Pakistani aunty who has found out that Iím going on umrah.
She wants me to take some clothes she has and distribute them to poor people over there.
Now Iím not really keen on this as I donít know where the tradition comes from. But more importantly, I donít really want to do something that I wouldnít do myself. Iíd rather just give cash sadaqah to poor people there.
Does anyone know where this clothes distribution ritual comes from?
And how do you do it? Who do you give the clothes to????
