Something a little different

As you may or may not know giving charity in Islam is strongly encouraged even if it is something as small as a mustard seed or something as simple as smiling at someone. This is not only for Ramadan but everyday of a Muslims life. However as Ramadan is the month of blessings we strive to do as many acts of charity and other good deeds as we can. There are only two or three days left and Muslims are emptying their pockets and even their bank accounts to help those in need.

I am still raising money to send trucks of flour to Syria so that the people there can make bread which is their staple food. I’m very far off my target but inshaAllah (Allah willing) will get there. If you do have a contribution you can click on the Just Giving link to the right to donate online or you can make a contribution via text by texting YEZZ78 and then the amount that you want to donate to 70070.

Thank you in advance. 🙂 JazakAllah khair (May Allah reward you with good)

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) has said: “To smile in the company of your brother is charity. To command to do good deeds and to prevent others from doing evil is charity. To guide a person in a place where he can not get astray is charity. To remove troublesome things like thorns and bones from the road is charity. To pour water from your jug into the jug of your brother is charity. To guide a person with defective vision is charity for you.” (Bukhari)

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) has said: ‘Sadaqah (charity) does not decrease wealth.’ (Muslim)
