How many of you give charity? What even is a charity?

Charity is when you give money, food, clothes or any such thing to someone in need.  The purpose behind the charity is to be able to help someone in any way or magnitude possible.

There are many reasons why we should give charity.

Giving charity is a habit that if reinforced from a young age, can help in the personal and moral development of an individual. People who frequently give charity are known to be more selfless, generous, kind and empathetic than those who don’t. Once you are regular in helping and giving back to people, this trait will be observed and adapted by many individuals that surround you and are associated with you. This way, your charity won’t just be limited to one person or family, you will be helping the wider society by promoting good deeds and spreading the message of love and kindness.

As Thomas Aquinas, one of history’s most famous philosophers once stated, “charity brings to life again, those who are dead.” (Forbes)

Through charity, one does not only help the one in monetary need, but he also helps his own soul by bringing it closer to selflessness and morality.

The concept of charity holds great importance in all religions. In Islam, charity is beyond just giving money or clothes. Even if you treat a person politely, it is counted as a charity. As stated in a hadith, Your smile for a brother is charity. Your removal of stones, thorns or bones from the paths of people is charity. Your guidance to a person who is lost is also charity.” (Bukhari) (Forbes) (zakat foundation of America)

We all have always known the importance of charity and the benefits too and it’s pretty obvious that each one of us has given charity to someone in one way or another.

However, there is a small issue… sometimes when we know a person who may be in a financial crisis and we want to help them but still we know that they won’t accept that help in the form of charity. It is sad but it’s true that charity is often associated with monetary help to poor and nothing beyond that – which as we just discussed, is NOT true.

Nevertheless, for such sensitive relations and matters, there is another solution. Instead of handing them money or clothes or whatsoever, now you can gift them a GIFT CARD by Imtiaz Super Market.

These gift cards are super cute and come in attractive color schemes and designs. They are also handy and easy to carry and are available in multiple prices; 500, 1000, 2500 & 5000 – so you have an option. You can purchase one or you can purchase multiple. It is completely up to you!

With these gift cards, you also give the recipients the power to choose and purchase for themselves which will make them feel independent and powerful in a time when they might be feeling hopeless.

You care about people and we care about YOU!

So let’s join hands and spread the message of love and generosity with Imtiaz Super Market’s gift cards. A gift of love!

Global warming is a serious issue. As time is passing, our environment is suffering more and more due to carelessness and lack of ownership that the citizens are showing towards it.

There are animal species that are becoming extinct, places in the world where glaciers are melting and there is no doubt that the climate is constantly rising and seasons are becoming extreme.

There are a lot of causes of this and one of the major ones is plastic usage. Most of the plastic that is used is one-use, which means that it is discarded after being used once and is not reused or recycled. Also, most of the plastic that is consumed locally and normally is unrecyclable which automatically makes it harmful for the environment.

While the side-effects of plastic usage are already harmful, what is worse is the environmental effects of plastic production. The production process of plastic is one of the leading reasons for excess carbon emissions that lead to global warming. A lot of energy and resources are required to produce plastic with 90% and more being produced from fossil fuel resources. This has awful repercussions for the environment.

For a sustainable environment, one of the most important steps that are required is the controlled usage of plastic products.

For this reason, Imtiaz Super Market being a responsible citizen promotes usage of paper bags and cloth bags instead of plastic bags. In 3 branches, paper bags have already been introduced and with time, this shall extend to all branches.  Furthermore, ‘go green’ campaigns are launched frequently by Imtiaz Super Market. Recently, a plantation drive was held by Imtiaz Super Market in Clifton, Karachi.

Although it might seem impossible to eliminate plastic from our lives completely, it is anything but! Instead of purchasing plastic bags and bottles, we can use paper bags and boxes or glass bottles. We can use matches to light fires instead of lighters that are usually made of plastic. Giving up gum is also a great idea as it is made of synthetic rubber which is basically plastic.

If we stop using plastic, industries will stop producing them.

Our environment is something that we’ve borrowed from our future generations, and we need to realize this and take ownership of it.

It’s about time that we start caring about our actions and their consequences on a larger scale and GO GREEN!
