Help us save lives this Ramadan
Millie is a young orphan who was tricked by a stranger into a life of prostitution. Sahar is a grief-stricken mother whose son was killed on the beach in Gaza. Shimona is a little girl who begs on the streets and sleeps at the roadside.
One of the many blessings of Ramadan is that it enables us to experience in a small way what the poor and destitute go through on a daily basis. The long hours without food and water should remind us of how fortunate we truly are to have an abundance of food at the time of iftar, whilst millions are forced to remain in a state of hunger and thirst for days and weeks through no fault of their own.
The Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever helps his brother in his time of need, Allah will be there in his time of need.” (Muslim)
Gather the Rewards of Ramadan
Giving charity is one of the best ways you can help those who are suffering, and there is no better time than Ramadan to donate. Good deeds are multiplied by more than 700 times in this blessed month, SubhanAllah! Indeed The Prophet (PBUH) was the most generous in this month and said: “The best charity is that given in Ramadan.” (Tirmidhi)
So let us all hasten to follow his Sunnah and earn extra rewards by generously giving our Zakat and Sadaqah this Ramadan. Thank you, in anticipation, for your support – and please join us in remembering Millie, Sahar, Shimona and millions more like them in your duas.
