The prophet (PBUH) was exceedingly generous, particularly during the month of Ramadan.
Thus, Muslims are encouraged to emulate his actions of compassion and mercy during this special month, where the rewards are multiplied.
Indeed, the refugee communities are among the communities in need of such generosity, especially during Ramadan.
The Prophet’s generosity during Ramadan and how to emulate it
The Prophet (PBUH) was greatly generous during the month of Ramadan. He also encouraged the believers to be exceptionally generous during the blessed month of Ramadan.
During Ramadan, the prophet (PBUH) used to spend most of his time reading the Qur’an , remembering Allah (SWT), and residing in the mosque to perform i’tikaaf.
Therefore, Muslims should increase their generosity during Ramadan and beyond it and increase their acts of worship, such as:
- Giving sadaqah.
- Reading the Qur’an .
- Supplicating (making duaa’).
- Remembering Allah (SWT).
Ibn ‘Abbas said “The Messenger of Allah was the most generous of people. He was especially generous during Ramadan when the Angel Gabriel would come and review the Qur’an with him. Gabriel would review the Qur’an with him every night during the month of Ramadan.
Verily, when Gabriel would come and review the Qur’an with him in Ramadan, the Messenger of Allah was more generous than the free-blowing wind,” Al-Bukhari.
Donating your zakat money during Ramadan
Prior to performing the Eid al-Fitr prayer after the end of Ramadan, all eligible adult Muslims are obligated to pay their zakat al-Fitr. This is because zakat al-Fitr is an obligatory act of charity that should be given to the poor and needy.
The primary objective of zakat al-Fitr is to bring joy to the members of the Muslim community, especially the poor and needy within the refugee communities, by enabling them to enjoy this special occasion.
With zakat al-Fitr, refugee children will be able to buy new clothes or toys to celebrate Eid with their peers. Donate your zakat al-Fitr to those vulnerable communities and spread joy among them.
