Ramadan falls within the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar; it is a time when we must all follow the wishes of Allah (SWT) and the teachings outlined in the Holy Qur’an.
To many millions of Muslims around the world, Ramadan is far more than a month of fasting during daylight hours. This month allows us to realign ourselves with our faith, reflecting on our deeds and recognising the acts we can do to attain greater rewards - both now and in the Hereafter.
Ramadan is a time for faith and for family, for self-awareness and education. As one of the most significant events in the Islamic calendar, it represents the faith that we follow and reminds us of the importance of equality, generosity and compassion.
During Ramadan, the good deeds and acts of kindness that we complete provide us with 70 times the amount of rewards we would obtain in the rest of the year.
Ramadan is the perfect time to share your own good fortune with those who are less fortunate, be it through your Zakat, Sadaqah or other generous donations. Giving to others is one of the fundamental pillars of Islam; Ramadan reminds us of the importance of such actions.
