Ramadan, a spiritual journey
Ramadan is really important to Muslims because it is an important part of Islam. It is a month through which we fast and gain closeness to Allah. More importantly, we can gain closeness to Allah through refraining from what’s bad for us and doing more acts of kindness such as helping others around us and getting involved in charitable acts.
Charity in Islam
Inequality within society can cause many problems within society and to an extent is a test from Allah. As Muslims, we are taught to give charity and show compassion to those that are less fortunate to us such as Orphans and Widows.
Charity is also mentioned many times in the Quran:
“Worship none but Allah. treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practise regular charity” (2:83).
Share a Meal: Feed an Orphan
This year, our team at Al-Kawthar want to do things differently. We think the journey of a donator can be made more personal and fun. Our Share a Meal, Feed an Orphan campaign involves you our donor cooking for your friends and family for a price and then donating that amount to Al-Kawthar. Below is some information on how you can get involved. If you have any questions, you can get in touch with us via our Instagram account or contact Arifa Suleman on 07988074529 or Seymina Janmohamed on 07851097976.
We understand that this may not be for everyone so if you would like to donate the traditional way please visit the Ramadan Campaign page where you can donate directly as normal.
However, if you would like to get involved through this campaign then make sure you select “Share a meal” on the donate now form. Let us know you are getting involved, we would happily send you something to share with your family and friends to show that you are taking part in this wonderful campaign and raise awareness.
