Ramadan 2024

"Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and spend (in charity) out of the (substance) whereof He has made you heirs. For, those of you who believe and spend (in charity), for them is a great Reward."

Qur’an 57:7

As the blessed month of Ramadan fast approaches, Human Relief Foundation continues to work tirelessly with communities across the world to deliver emergency humanitarian relief where it is most desperately needed.

Our history and work speak for itself. For over thirty years, Human Relief Foundation provided humanitarian assistance to those affected by natural disasters, armed conflicts, and poverty across the world. We have been one of the first responders to major crises in many countries, including displaced people in Iraq, the continuing Syrian and Rohingya refugee crises, and more recently providing food, shelter and clothing in response to the human suffering and devastation brought by the earthquakes in Morocco, the devastating floods in Libya and tragedy currently befalling Palestine.

This Ramadan we are using the #30DaysOfHope hashtag to share our messages of hope, and examples of the work we carry out across the world, delivering humanitarian relief where it’s needed most.

What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and considered to be a holy month designed for fasting, spiritual reflection and worship for Muslim. For approximately 30 days, Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, abstaining from food, drink and impure thoughts leading up to Eid- Al Fitr, the final celebration. The pre-dawn meal usually consists of milk and dates, both considered fast-breaking foods.

At the time of sunsetIftar, Muslims mark the end of the fast by sharing a meal with family and friends and then gathering for evening prayers, Tarawih, at the mosque. This important practice is an additional night prayer after the communal evening prayers.

The last ten nights of Ramadan are particularly important and some will increase their nightly prayers. On the evening of the 27th day of Ramadan, Muslims observe Laylat al-Qadr, or "Night of Power." This special night is believed to be when the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) first received the Holy Qur'an.
