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: Break the fast with moderation
Protect and care for your body and the bodies of those sharing the Iftar meal with you by eating in moderation and with an eye to health. Ramadan is a time to be grateful for what we have, to avoid wastefulness, and take the opportunity to improve our lives. The Iftar meal is the greatest embodiment of Allah’s grace and generosity, and the way we serve and celebrate this daily meal should reflect that.
