Charity Work in Ramadan
The Holy Month of Giving
Charity work during Ramadan is an important part of Islamic life. Muslims around the world observe the Holy Month of Ramadan, becoming closer to God through Sawm (fasting), Salat (prayer) and Zakat (giving) to people in need. Families celebrate the break of daily fasting with a nourishing meal called Iftar, while remembering those less fortunate. Sadly, millions of people in poor countries go hungry every day. Food, clean water, shelter and hope for a better future are in short supply.
The Rewards of Charity
Donating to charity projects is strongly encouraged during Ramadan when the spiritual rewards are greatest. Your contributions make a world of difference to the poor, as well as enhancing the blessings of Allah for you.

“Whoever provides food for breaking of the fast for a fasting person receives the reward of the fasting person, without the reward of the fasting person being reduced in any way.” [Tirmidhi & Ibn Majah]
