"In the Islamic faith, our values and tradition include providing food for the hungry. Food is a basic
human need and we must ensure that vulnerable communities have their needs meet by expanding
SNAP benefits. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, 'He who sleeps on a full stomach
whilst his neighbour goes hungry is not one of us.' We call on members of Congress to include expanding
SNAP benefits for those who need it in the next COVID-19 relief package. Families need support during
this time, and expanding SNAP will provide much-needed relief."
