Ramadan

A month of compassion, gratitude and generosity.

There are many ways to maximize doing good during the blessed month of Ramadan.

Our Ramadan programs include:

  • Distributing food packages that provide a month’s worth of meals to needy families
  • Digging wells and refilling water tanks as a continuous charity
  • Sponsoring orphans as an act of mercy modeled by the Prophet Muhammad
  • Responding to urgent needs due to poverty, conflict or other emergencies
  • Accepting and fulfilling religious obligations such as fidyah, kaffara, and zakat on behalf of donors 

Hunger…

Every year, Muslims around the world prepare for day-long fasts as they eagerly welcome the month of Ramadan.

But for many around the world, hunger is their daily reality.

They, too, will be fasting in Ramadan. Only they don’t know where their next meal will come from — or when.

It could come from you.

Don’t let the sun set on their hope.

Your Compassion Makes a Difference

Thirst…

In addition to hunger, many families suffer from lack of clean, safe water.

Whether due to drought, conflict, poverty or pollution, access to clean water is a dire issue. Many people risk illness, disease or worse from drinking dirty water, or they face dehydration from rationing what little clean water they have. 

By providing access to clean water for those in need, you not only quench their thirst, but refill hope.

“It is the month of compassion, in which the sustenance of a believer increases. He who feeds a fasting person within this month has his sins forgiven and he will be protected and released from the hellfire. He also gets the reward of that person’s fasting without decreasing the reward of the fasting person.

Loss…

Many children experience trauma at a young age when they lose a loving parent.

These orphans are at greater risk for losing out on so much more… continuing education, adequate healthcare, sufficient food, social supports and overall wellbeing. 

By sponsoring an orphan during Ramadan, you not only help provide their basic needs, but you also give them a hopeful heart and a brighter future.

ISLAMIC GIVING

While Ramadan is a month of fasting, it is also the month of giving. Many Muslims choose to fulfill their religious dues during the blessed month. You can pay your zakat, fidyah and kaffara and rest assured it will go to those in need according to Islamic guidelines.
