Zakat (Charity) in Ramadan

DSCF7739 1
Ramadan is the month during the year when Muslims fast during the daylight hours. Muslims are very charitable yearround but being charitable during the month of Ramadan is especially important to Muslims. Charity can be given in many forms, from clothing and food, to money and good deeds. Being charitable is obligatory in Islam, and when it is done during the month of Ramadan, Muslims believe that they are given more blessings, rewards, or credit, if you will, than when charity is performed during the rest of the year. Many Muslims personally seek out those who appear to be in greatest need and give to them, preferring to handle this charity individually themselves instead of relying on a charity organization or a middle man.

    Susie, I have to ask. Did you capture this picture using the SUV mirror or did you actually roll the window down and snap the picture? Also, is that your hubby, Adnan?

    Thanks for sharing!

    • I took this photo of the side view mirror from inside the SUV with the window rolled up. I didn’t want to embarass them, but I thought it was a nice moment. That is my hubby Adnan – we had been collecting some items in the car to give away, and we were driving by and he stopped and gave everything to this woman, along with some cash.

    If you have to rack up points to get to heaven then I guess that means either life or death is a game. I’d rather give without being concerned about the points.
