Ramadan Special: Use the Holy Month as an opportunity to bless your debtors

It is our responsibility to honour our commitments and pay our debts, but there is a great reward for those who, as an act of worship to Allah, forgive those who are in their debt. If it is financially viable, and especially if it is for a small amount, use Ramadan as an opportunity to bless your debtors with the forgiveness of that which they owe you. Your reward is with Allah, and he is ever just and generous.

Iftar recipe


3 large potatoes
1 bell pepper
1/2 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp red chilli flakes
2 tsp butter
1 tbsp plain flour
The potatoes will turn out best if boiled and refrigerated overnight before using.
Do not peel potatoes. Slice into thin rounds or grate coarsely.
Deseed green bell pepper and slice into thin rounds.
Heat a thick non stick pan about 5" diameter.
Meanwhile mix cheese, milk, crumbs, flour and chilli flakes.If mixture feels thin, add some more bread crumbs.
Add salt to taste. Apply 1 tsp. on bottom of pan.Arrange potatoes to cover the pan. Top with bell pepper.
Pour the mixture all over evenly. Level to cover all the potatoes.Sprinkle fresh ground pepper, salt and simmer on low till bottom is golden brown.
Flip over very carefully with a wide sharp spatula, and roast the other side.
Let in the remaining butter around the edges to seep down.Let other side become golden brown too.
Flip on serving plate and make sections with a knife.Serve hot.-by Oneza Tabish
