ramadan-food

It is said that during the Holy month of Ramadan, the doors of Heaven are opened for all believers.

In this lunar month, many Muslims worldwide fast from sunrise to sunset, not only by way of abstaining from nourishment but by all means, such as:

Fasting with the eyes to avoid seeing something they shouldn’t;

Fasting with the mouth to avoid saying hurtful or bad things to others;

Fasting with the ears, to avoid hearing anything they shouldn’t;

Purifying the mind and soul and humbling oneself.

And so on…

It is a month in which it is highly rewarded and commended to remember and help those less fortunate than ourselves. Many people do this in the form of feeding those who are fasting, volunteering for charity, making donations, fundraising and so much more.

Ramadan is also the blessed month in which the Holy Qur’an - the book of guidance for all humanity - was bestowed upon us, and how beautiful is it that the doors of Heaven are open during this month? At a time when all blessings and rewards are multiplied? Subhaan'Allah! 

Following this humble and pure month comes the exciting festival of Eid-ul-Fitr, to mark the completion of the blessed month, to thank Allah SWT and to celebrate its privilege. During this festival, believers come together and pray, donate to charity and celebrate with family and friends.

Investing in Our Hereafter

As we go about our daily lives and routines it is often easy to forget those amongst us who are struggling – be it from world conflict, lack of nourishment and water, worldly disaster and emergencies or sheer poverty. Ramadan can often serve as a valuable reminder that there are many brothers and sisters out there who could do with our help – even the smallest act of generosity could mean the difference between life and death for some; no contribution is trivial because a little can go a very long way.

One of the primary focuses of the month of Ramadan and festival of Eid-ul-Fitr is to remember those in need. Here at Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, we believe that our wealth does not decrease by giving to others, it is purely a means of taking from one account and transferring it into another, what we often forget is that both of those accounts are our own; one exists in this world and the other in our Hereafter.

Join Al Mustafa Welfare Trust today and help us to support those in need this Ramadan, one of the things we were put here to do. 

One Ummah, one goal.
