The Month of Giving
Ramadan is a divine course from Allah for our spiritual growth. By staying hungry and thirsty for hours, we develop empathy and care toward the less fortunate among us. And we learn to thank Allah and appreciate all of His blessings.
When we break the fast with family and friends, we learn to share food and love to strengthen our kinship. When we finish Ramadan, we hope to gain a much-needed spiritual attachment to our Creator and to His creations and extend it all year.
The best charity is that given in Ramadan
The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful.
