During Ramadan Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, it is also a way to experience how life is like for people around the world who do not have enough food to eat. That feeling, just imagines how many people around the world feel this way all the time out of no choice of their own.
It is stated in the Quran:
Ramadan is a time of sacrifice and sharing. Many people around the world are facing abject poverty. This Ramadan, it is even more important to support such people. As the Holy Quran reminds us:
This Ramadan with Minhaj, you will reach out with love and care to the most vulnerable people facing extreme poverty – children like Irfan and Abdul (pictured right) who want nothing more than to go to school and have a bright future, so that they too can support their families.
Abdullah and Irfan are both from South Punjab, Pakistan. Like millions of children, they are living in extreme poverty and are left displaced. With your support, we can help change the lives of many children around the world like Abdullah and Irfan, as part of our long-term commitment in helping people rebuild their lives.
This Ramadan with Minhaj, host an Iftar event with your friends and family and do your bit for those in need. Make your iftar more than just about food. Inspire love and compassion for humanity in need around the world, by instilling the true meaning of Ramadan; that of charity and sharing.
