A month of good deeds

By time, verily man is in loss. Except such as have faith, and do good deeds, and (join together) in the mutual enjoining of truth, and of patience and constancy. (Sura Al Asr 103:1-3)

One of the seven pillars of Islam is Zakat, an act of financial charity, which is obligatory for those who have excess wealth.
However, giving Zakat is not the only way to bless those around you during the Holy Month, and here we highlight other charitable acts that can be performed in the name of Allah and as a blessing on both the giver and the recipient.

Good Deed of the Day:
Pray in the mosque, and bring a friend.
The offering of prayer in the mosque gives us the chance to socialising with other Muslims, encourage one another, and strengthen the fabric of society stronger. Offer to drive your elderly family members, invite a friend to join you for Isha prayers in the mosque before your scheduled coffee, or offer to bring the children in your family with you.
