Briyani in Singapore: The Warmth Behind Briyani4Good

Briyani4Good, an inspiring movement pioneered by Saffrons, captures the spirit of giving through the simple act of sharing a meal. Every week, this initiative sees scrumptious packets of briyani distributed to mosques, housing estates, and homes—bringing not only nourishment but also a smile to those in need. 

Let's delve into how Briyani in Singapore is making a difference, one packet at a time.

The Essence of Briyani4Good

Why just satisfy hunger when you can also feed the soul? Briyani4Good isn't merely about food distribution; it's about fostering a sense of community and shared humanity:

  • Community Support: Providing delicious briyani packets to a diverse group during Friday prayers at mosques, including foreign workers and local attendees. This initiative not only offers a hearty meal but also builds a sense of belonging and appreciation within the community.
  • Crowdfunding Drive: This initiative allows everyone to partake in a meaningful cause by contributing funds to prepare and distribute these meals. It’s a simple yet powerful way to bring people together, fostering a spirit of generosity and collective goodwill. Each contribution, no matter how small, helps in spreading joy and comfort through every briyani packet shared.
  • Regular Contributions: Ensuring ongoing support for various vulnerable groups in Singapore, including elderly residents and needy families in housing estates. By maintaining a consistent distribution schedule, Briyani4Good provides reliable and much-needed relief, reinforcing the commitment to uplifting the community and ensuring that help is always at hand for those who need it most.


Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari reported the Prophet (Peace be upon him) saying: 

You should feed the hungry, free the captives and pay a visit to the sick.” 

Imam Muhammad Ibn Al-Munkadir has said that: 

Feeding hungry peoples guarantees the forgiveness of sins.
