May the joys of Ramadan be showered upon you. This Ramadan comes as a relief after a difficult and uncertain year. Although it is not over, Ramadan brings with it warmth and joy. To enable our community to continue being safe while still celebrating every moment of this beautiful month. Our organization would like to bring back the Iftar Box! Last year this project made it possible to give back to the community by staying true to the sacred month of giving. This year we hope to do that and so much more.
The Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever feeds the person who is breaking his fast, he will have his reward (for his fasting) without decreasing anything from the reward of the fasting person.”
[Al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Maajah - Classed as Sahih by Sh al-Albaani]
