Ramadan at doorstep; help poor citizens

We are at the threshold of the holy month of Ramadan; the blessed fasting days, in which we have to help our people in need.
This is the philosophy of the holy month of Ramadan is to help other Muslims in need, while they are observing fast and have nothing or less thing for their breaking fast or early-fast times.
Ramadan is the most sacred and holiest month of the year and a time for Muslims to grow spiritually, do good and think good and most importantly refrain from resentment and animosity to become closer to Allah Almighty, while they are taking fast.
Another important event that happened in the holy month of Ramadan, was that the prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was chosen as the ‘Messenger of Allah’ and received religious revelations through the Gabriel (Peace Be Upon Him) that became the Quran; a permanent guideline for the whole world people, particularly the Muslims.
Likewise, Lailat al-Qadr, the holiest night of Ramadan, which is known as the “Night of Power” is said to be when the Gabriel (PBUH) revealed the holy Quran’s first verses to the prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
Ramadan signifies the abstinence of eating and drinking anything from dawn to sunset; a practice which is one of the five pillars of the holy religion of Islam and teaches Muslims everywhere to remind the situation of the poor people and to help those in need.
The practice Sawm (fasting) which is one of the most important pillars has the philosophy of help and cooperation with others, which follows “Shahada”, declaring faith in Allah, the Almighty and a belief in Mohammad, then “Salat”, to pray five times a day; “Zakat”, to give to those in need and finally Hajj, to make a pilgrimage to Macca al-Mukkarrama, if they were able, at least once in one’s life.
Ramadan is also a time for spiritual reflection, prayer, doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends.
Gathering with family and community and doing Iftar (breakfast) with people in need is a significant part of Ramadan and an opportunity for the Muslim communities to fully gather as worshipers in public mosques.
The holy month will also provide family and friends with the chance to get together during Iftar to breakfast together and once a year enjoy food and community in larger groups, mostly at the mosques compounds.
So, when we cast a glance at the depth of the holy month of Ramadan, we find that Ramadan is a time of reflection, good feeling, endowment and doing good deeds with other people. Let us take the hand of our poor citizens and help them with food, as much as we can.
