“The best charity is that given in Ramadan ”

Ramadan

The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan falls during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Allah SWT has favoured this month over the rest of the months of the year. It is one of the pillars of Islam and fasting (abstaining from food, drink, impure thoughts and committing sinful acts between the hours of sunrise and sunset) is obligatory for every Muslim. 

Ramadan is a month of worship, mercy, and forgiveness in which all Muslims strive to get closer to Allah, performing good deeds such as praying, reading the Quran and giving charity as the reward is multiplied during this holy month. The 30 days of fasting gives each Muslim a deeper understanding of what it is to be less fortunate as abstaining from food, drink and desires allow us to empathise with the unfortunate reality of these orphans. Therefore, Muslims are encouraged to generously give in charity throughout the month and donate their Zakat before the final Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, the closing celebration of Ramadan.

The virtue of charity in Ramadan:

The month of Ramadan is a time of generosity and giving.The prophet said : The best charity is that given in Ramadhan.”
[At-Tirmithi].
