Ramadan 2020/1441: Ramadan Giving Day 1 - National Zakat Foundation

One of the best parts of Ramadan is the sheer amount of money that goes out in zakat (alms) and sadaqah (charity) for the benefit of others. The reward of Ramadan is so great, that even if we can give a small amount, it is the equivalent of giving much more.

The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed which grows seven spikes, in each spike is a hundred grains. Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills, for Allah is vast and knowing ~ Quran 2:261

Ramadan Giving Day 1: National Zakat Foundation
National Zakat Foundation is a charity I have been a fan of since its inception. Meeting the need that is nearest to you, but often hidden away. NZF were also central to the Grenfell disaster response and becoming part of the Grenfell Muslim Response Unit (GMRU).

NZF say: There are thousands of Muslims across the country who can and should be giving Zakat, but not all Muslims know there’s a need to give it where they live. Many Muslims in the UK are struggling with poverty and being held back from reaching their potential. Almost half of all Muslims in the UK are living in poverty. That’s more than twice the national average of 20%.

You can find out more about NZF’s work and impact, and donate here.

O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you ~ Quran 2:254

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good” (Bukhari).
