Our Prophet (SAW): “He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while the neighbor to his side goes hungry.”

Let us be a cure to the poverty they have suffered, and love in their hearts, by sharing our food with our muslim brothers and sisters by offering them iftar and sahur in Ramadan, which is the month of sharing.

Share the blessings of Ramadan. Offer iftar to fellow Muslims, help under-nourished children and needy families during this holy month of Ramadan.

Rasūlullāh (sallallāhu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Verily, sadaqah (charity) closes seventy doors of evil.”
