Be like the wind - charity in Ramadan

By Amatullah Aminah / 27 Jul 2013

Be charitable before wealth makes thee covetous. - Thomas Browne

It was a scorching 45 degrees Celsius day, as I sat in an air conditioned car, complaining on the heat. We stopped at a crossing, and a girl of 9-10 years tapped at my window. What I confronted virtually slapped me in the face; my eyes welled up and I shook my head in mortification. She was dishevelled, her hair in a tangled mess, her lips parched, imploring eyes, torn clothes and, to add to all the misery, she carried a baby (her brother, I am assuming) looking unconscious as she clutched him close!! And I was worried about dehydration, sun burn and getting sick!!!! What a shame.

Ramadan: The month of spiritual development

By : Abu Tariq Hijazi | 07 Aug 2012

Islam is a unique religion that provides the longest festival period to its followers. This festival is not marked by dance, drama, gambling, drinking and dining but it is for moral uplift and spiritual enhancement. The main feature of the month, Ramadan, is fasting from dawn to dusk, which is the third pillar of Islam. This helps to improve health in many ways and at the same time gives a real feeling of hunger suffered by millions of people around the world. When a billion people fast around the globe for one month, they save millions of tons on foodstuff annually for their hungry brothers. Such a great contribution is not made by any other community of the world.

Fasting in the Holy month of Ramadan is a devotional exercise, which purifies the soul and equips one for a sustained relationship with God where fear of Allah remains supreme.
