Ramadan 2017 Day #13

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 #13 bi’iznillah.

Deed of the Day: Pray all of your Sunnah Prayers

“Allah will build a house in Heaven for whoever is diligent in observing 12 Sunnah Rak’at (as follows): 4 Rak’at before and 2 after the Dhuhr (Midday) Prayer, 2 after the Maghrib (Sunset Prayer), 2 after the ‘Isha’ (Evening) Prayer and 2 before the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer.” [Tirmidhi] 

Prophetic Food of the Day: Sea Food

Anything you catch in the sea is lawful for you, and all food from it, for your enjoyment and that of travelers… [Surat al‐Ma’ida: 96]

Charity Spotlight: Salam Jone’s East Africa Appeal

The world is watching again as East Africa plummets into a potential famine unseen in over 60 years.

12.4 Million people are in urgent need of food, water and medical assistance across East Africa. Parts of Kenya and Somalia have seen very little rain in the last 2 years resulting in a failure of crops, livestock and supply of safe water.

Unless we act now this crisis will start claiming lives putting at risk the young, frail and vulnerable.

Imagine a situation where a mother having to choose which one of her children she feeds based on their chances of their survival. 

Please help us raise awareness and funds for these mothers so they do not have to make these heartbreaking decisions.

Muslim Charity is on the ground already working to enable food, water and medical distributions to the neediest and networking with other international agencies to make sure the global effort is collective and not in isolation.

This crisis is on a monumental scale and needs a equal response to make sure we save every single life.
