Feed a Poor Person in Ramadan
Ramadan stats 2017- 2020
Ramadan is 9th month of the lunar calendar and it is the holy month where all Muslims observe the act of fasting from dawn to dusk. This month is a time of spiritual discipline and of deep contemplation of one’s relationship with Allah ﷻ. It is also a time of increased prayers, increased charity, and extra study of the Quran.
Sadly many people around the world have no issue fasting in the day but it is a meal in the evening to break their fast on that they do not have.
Throughout the month of Ramadan, Al-Ihsan Foundation works to provide poor and needy families with food packs to last the whole month of fasting. Each pack caters to specific dietary requirements within the country of distribution.
Al-Ihsan Foundation has distributed food packs in Indonesia, the Philippines, Turkey, Somalia, Syria, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Ethiopia, and the Rohingya refugees as well as Palestinian refugees residing in Lebanon.
From Ramadan 2017, 2018 and Ramadan 2019 Al-Ihsan Foundation has provided 2,846,954 servings around the world for the poor and needy to break their fast on.
By breaking one’s fast, by the will of Allah you will also gain the reward like that of the fasting person. There is high importance in breaking a fast of someone, especially those who are deserving of charity and living in poverty.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward.” Narrated by Tirmidhi
With the outbreak of the coronavirus will make this Ramadan even more difficult upon the poor and needy around the globe. The virus will put further strain on those already struggling to feed their families.
Al-Ihsan Foundation is preparing for Ramadan food packs for the poor and most disadvantaged communities in Lebanon, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Turkey (Displaced Refugees).
The Prophet said: “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
