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.
- The first will be a ‘Deed of the Day’ highlighting a different deed that you can do each day.
- The second will highlight a specific Prophetic Food that you can eat to incorporate a Sunnah Food item in your diet.
- 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 #14 bi’iznillah.
Deed of the Day: Visit a Sick Person
‘Visit the sick and ask them to supplicate for you because the supplication of a sick person is accepted and his sins are forgiven.’ [At-Tabarani]
Prophetic Food of the Day: Vinegar
It was narrated that Jabir (r.a) said: “I entered the house of the Prophet with him and there was some bread and vinegar. The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Eat; what a good condiment is vinegar.’” [Sunan an-Nasa’i]
Charity Spotlight: Eid Gifts of Happiness at Great Ormond Street Hospital
Eid Gifts of Happiness
This Eid we want to bring joy and happiness to children who are suffering from cancer at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Eid is a happy and festive time in the Muslim community but for many children suffering from life limiting conditions like cancer, Eid will be spent in hospital away from family and friends. This can be a particularly testing time for the children and we want to bring happiness to these children who are suffering from cancer and other illnesses at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Children like my nephew Musa who had undergone a bone marrow transplant recently from his 5 year old brother have had to battle cancer and endure medical treatment such as the extremely testing times of chemotherapy and on a day to day basis, which is physically and emotionally draining for these children who are aged between 1 – 16 years old.
We want these children to know that despite this difficult and testing time for them, there are moments of joy and sharing gifts with them this Eid will bring about happiness!
