Dr. Shaukat Nizami (Late)
The founder of Shaoor Welfare Organization
Allah, the Almighty says: "And those who give what they give (in alms) while their hearts are full of fear that to their Lord they must return. These hasten to do good things and they are foremost in (attaining) them. And We do not lay on any soul a burden except to the extent of its ability, and with Us is a book which speaks the truth, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly” (23:60-62)
