The month of Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and it is in this blessed month the Holy Quran was revealed. During the month of Ramadan Muslims fast from food and drink and abstain from other activities from sunrise to sunset. Ramadan is about patience, self-discipline and control for the believer to gain reward from Allah (Swt). Charity in Ramadan is considered to have more blessing and reward too.
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:” When Ramadan enters, the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hellfire are closed and the devils are chained.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)This Ramadan SMT want to make a difference to some of the most vulnerable people in the world; orphans and widows. Whether you would like to pay Zakat, Sadaqah, Fidya or Kafarah – your Ramadan donations will help us support hundreds of families in need of food, water, clothing and shelter.
“The one who strives for widows and the poor is like the Mujahid in the way of Allah (swt), or one who stand in night prayers or fasts during the day.”(Al-Bukhari)
For the millions of widows and orphans around the world we support the long fasting days of Ramadan rarely end with a nourishing, fulfilling meal. Instead many of the women and their children barely have enough food and water to open their fasts in the evening. In countries like Pakistan, where government handouts are rare, it has become impossible for these families to survive. Women have very few opportunities to support their families and instead are forced to make agonising decisions about their futures. This Ramadan these women and their children need your support.
