Ramadan 2017 Day #12


Assalamu Alaykum,

This Ramadan I would like to share a brief post with you every day asking you to do three things in the day as part of our 30 Day Ramadan challenge.

  1. The first will be a ‘Deed of the Day’ highlighting a different deed that you can do each day.
  2. The second will highlight a specific Prophetic Food that you can eat to incorporate a Sunnah Food item in your diet.
  3. The final will be a charity spotlight recommending a specific charity for you to donate a small sum to in order to support their work.

Let us begin below the actions for Day #12 bi’iznillah.

Deed of the Day: Contribute towards feeding the fasting Muslims in poorer places

“Whoever gives iftaar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.”  [Tirmidhi] 

Prophetic Food of the Day: Grapes

‘He is the One who sent down water from the heavens, of which you have your drink; and with it (you grow) plants on which you pasture your cattle. He causes the crops therewith to grow for you, and olives, and date palms, and grape vines, and all the fruits. Surely, in that, there is a sign for a people who ponder.’ [Qur’an 16:10-11]

Charity Spotlight:

Hope Foundation Trust is a UK based registered charity, an international relief and development organisation, which is striving to alleviate poverty and lack of education amongst the most poor, vulnerable adults and children in the communities of Bangladesh and other communities. This will require short term support by fulfilling peoples immediate needs and equipping people, especially children, with knowledge and tools for long term self-sufficiency.

Our current projects focuses on improving the lives of the poor and deprived, with a particular focus upon the provision of clean water. We aspire to utilise our expertise, knowledge and network so that we could focus on helping the deprived, poor needy and vulnerable families and communities. Without your help and support our full potential and vision cannot be fulfilled.
