Feeding the Fasting in Ramadan

Muslims are reminded to be generous and increase their charitable activities. As a result, during Ramadan, much charitable giving is done by the community. Yes, donations are usually focused on giving to those stricken by poverty and hunger.

During the Ramadan period, when we experience the effects of hunger during our fast, we establish a closer association with those people who usually go through the condition due to a lack of food. So, fasting serves two purposes. It tests your obedience and devotion to Allah (SWT) and how well you can restrain yourself from the pleasures of life, and it also reminds you of the people who are starving.

This feeling inspires and enables us to help others. Charity to these families this month will not only help them financially but will also help them out spiritually.

We have Iftar programmes for Muslims in Osun State, Nigeria . Each meal cost ₦400. It’s our duty as Muslims to help those who need it most. It’s for this reason that we created for our Feeding the Fasting programme, which you can donate to feed 1,250 people this Ramadan.

Reward of feeding a fasting person

Zayd ibn Khalid al-Juhani said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever gives iftar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 807; Ibn Majah, 1746. Classed as sahih by Ibn Hiban, 8/216 and by al-Albani in Sahih al-Jami’, 6415)

Shaykh al-Islam [Ibn Taymiyah] said: “What is meant by giving him iftar is giving him enough to satisfy him.” (Al-Ikhtiyarat, p. 194)

The righteous salaf were keen to provide food for others and they thought that this was one of the best of righteous deeds.

One of the salaf said: “For me to invite ten of my companions and feed them food that they like is dearer to me than freeing ten of the sons of Isma’il from slavery.”

Many of the salaf used to give up their iftar for others, such as ‘Abd-Allah ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), Dawud al-Tai, Malik ibn Dinar and Ahmad ibn Hanbal. Ibn ‘Umar used to break his fast with orphans and the poor and needy.

There were among the salaf those who used to offer food to their brothers whilst fasting, and they would sit and serve them, such as al-Hasan and Ibn al-Mubarak.

Abu al-Siwar al-‘Adawi said: “Men from the tribe of Banu ‘Adiyy used to pray in this mosque and not one of them would break his fast on his own; if they found someone to join them they would eat with him, otherwise they would take their food out to the mosque and eat with the people, and the people would eat with them.”

Your donation in Ramadan can save others from hunger.

Some circumstances don’t require motivational speech, they require real help, and that’s money.
