The Prophet (PBUH) said:
The likeness of believers in regard to mutual love, mercy, and kindness is that of one body; when any part aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.
(Sahih Muslim)

While so much around us feels uncertain, we can feel safe in the promise of Allah, the Most Generous, that giving charity can only increase our wealth.

Do we still feel the anguish of countless families in Gaza imprisoned by siege, the hunger of a child in Myanmar who has nothing to eat tonight, or the screams of a mother who lost her child amid bullets and bombs in Yemen today?

 

This Ramadan, let’s feel their struggle and come together as one

We know that these times are tough on everyone, however Allah (SWT) has given us the answer. Allah has told us that Sadaqah protects us from calamity and sickness. He even tells us that giving charity increases your sustenance! Allah is indeed the most generous, Alhamdulillah.

So, let’s give more than ever this Ramadan.

Feel their pain and show them that we are one

We are on the front lines in over 30 countries, just like we have been with every major disaster for years, delivering food, water and emergency relief to those in desperate need. Together, we helped over 1.5 million people last year. Your Zakat and Sadaqah can save lives.

This year, let’s show our brothers and sisters that We Are One.
