Ramadan is the 9th and holiest month of the Islamic calendar, or Hijri calendar is a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community.

During the entire month of Ramadan, Muslims are obligated to fast, every day from dawn to sunset. Fasting of the body requires the abstinence from food, drink & desire, as well as from negative thoughts & opinions.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person’. (Tirmidhi)

There are many people this Ramadan who will go hungry well beyond Iftar time. By giving to the Iftar Fund you are ensuring that those most in need will enjoy a nutritious meal after a hard day of fasting.
