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 #23 bi’iznillah
Deed of the Day: Visit friends and relatives and honour the guests that visit you
“Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should honour his guest. Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day, should maintain ties of kinship. Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day, should speak well or be silent.” [Agreed upon – Riyadh As-Salihin]
Prophetic Food of the Day: Olives
‘God is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The likeness of His Light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass, the glass as it were a glittering star kindled from a Blessed Tree, an olive neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow forth [of itself], though no fire touched it. Light upon light. God guides to His Light whom He will. And God strikes similitudes for men; and God is Knower of all things.‘ [Qur’an 24:35]
Charity Spotlight: Charity Right
Charity Right is an international food programme providing regular meals to children and families in the most neglected parts of the world.
We focus on providing school meals to existing schools to encourage children to come to school and to stay there.
We promise to provide regular meals to ensure that we remove the hunger from their stomachs and the fear of hunger from their minds and hearts. This allows families to stop worrying about where their next meal will come from and start focusing on the things that matter.
We actively seek out vulnerable and isolated communities where other charities don’t operate. From refugee camps in Eastern Sudan to deserts in Pakistan, we ensure regular food is made available to schools in some of the world’s hardest to reach areas.
You can support their work by donating using the link below:
