Ramadan..Its time to give zakat


There are so many poor people on earth, but mostly we ingore them only and then when the news says a baby died of hunger we all say: “Poor baby, why did nobody helped.”
In the Picture above you can see the ignorance very well through the child with the balloon passing by. It’s kinda contrast.

“O believers, never shall you attain to true piety unless you spend on others out of what you cherish yourselves; and whatever you spend – verily, God has full knowledge thereof.” Qur’an – (3:92)

In the Qur’an, Allah tells us to fast during the month of Ramadan so that we may learn to be grateful. So every day, from dawn to dusk, for one entire month, Muslims fast in the hopes of becoming closer to our Lord.
It’s during this time, while our stomachs are empty and our energy wanes, that we remember those around the world who regularly live their days in hunger and poverty.


The facade of real life….  

 

 

 It is in these moments that we as Muslims are encouraged to give from the blessings that Allah has given us. And when we do, the rewards are multiplied. From 10 times the reward to 700 times, the benefits of giving are tremendous. 

 

 

This Ramadan, share your blessings with those less fortunate. By giving those in poverty, you can help ease the pain and suffering of countless numbers of people around the world, an effort that could not be made without your help.

Every year about 18 million people (50 thousand per day), the majority women and children, die for reasons related with the poverty. Every year about 11 million children die before completing 5 years.
* 1100 million people, about one sixth of the humanity, live with less than 1 dollar per day.

while you’re looking at this picture, somebody else has died.

Allah willing, by helping to provide for others during this blessed month, we can all learn to be grateful for what Allah has provided us. 
 

 

Try to offer something to those people in need, even if its just a piece of bread, by increasing your chance to earn good deeds and help ease the suffering of those less fortunate. 

May Allah give you more for your good deeds Ameen!   
(Thats what Islam is all about)

    Assalamoalaykum,

    Ramzan Mubarak, Ramzan me 1Farz ka 70 Guna Azar milta hai, Ek Mazloom – Karzdar Khatun ki Zakat Sadkaat se madat kijiye. Soodkhoron ki Giraft se chhudayen.

    Aap momin jobhi madat bhej sake wo bhejiye….

    (Translation: One ferz is 70 times more in the month of Ramadan. Ek mazloom means a female worker. Help me with zakat and release me from the people who make riba.

  2. Ironic isn’t it…
    While some are able to run around in their Ferraris, many still struggle to get food. Zakat and Sadaqah is the solution… Too bad many Muslims are still too scared to part with their wealth.
