Rewards of Ramadan: 5 Reasons to Give This Ramadan

Ramadan is one of the most cherished months for Muslims all around the world— a month of prayers, joys, festivities, worship, and togetherness.

As we fast throughout the month, we are encouraged to look beyond our own desires and to understand the struggles of the less fortunate and empathise with them. (Read: Why do Muslims Fast?)

During this month, the gates of Heaven are opened, the devil is shackled, and the gates to Hell are closed. Allah SWT showers us with His blessings, and we have the golden opportunity to strengthen our relationship with Him. 

In his lifetime, Prophet Mohammed SAW has shown us that one of the best ways to earn Allah SWT’s closeness, and perhaps the best possible deed to perform during Ramadan, is to take care of the less privileged ones in any way that we can.

So, as we head into the blessed month, here are five ahadith highlighting the importance of giving charity this Ramadan.

Trust us, it’s an opportunity that should not be missed!

5 Reasons to Give to The Less Privileged This Ramadan 


1. The reward of charity in Ramadan is that of the best possible charity.

Islam puts great emphasis on the act of charity and taking care of fellow humans, and we should indeed practise it abundantly throughout the year.

However, according to hadith, the best charity is that which is given in Ramadan, and why wouldn’t it be? After all, Ramadan is the month of giving, isn’t it?

So, charity is undoubtedly one of the most practised good deeds you should perform in the month of Ramadan. Giving charity not only means you do what is possibly the best good deed in Ramadan, but you also earn a place in Jannah. 

In another hadith, the Prophet SAW says that if a believer feeds a hungry believer, Allah SWT will feed him from the fruits of Paradise itself! [Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2449]

2. You earn the rewards of multiple fasts 


Aside from general charity, one of the best good deeds in Ramadan is to provide Iftar to someone. Although it may seem like a small act, it is definitely one of the most highly rewarded ones, and we see this in the fact that the Prophet SAW said,

“Whoever gives food for a fasting person to break his fast, he will have a reward like theirs, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest.” [Sunan Ibn Majah 1746]

SubhanAllah! When you help the people break their fast, you are not only sharing food and blessings but also getting the reward of your own fast doubled. 

And the best part? If you can afford to donate no more than just half a date (equivalent to merely half a cent), you will still be rewarded just the same as long as you give with pure intentions.

3. You are rewarded for following Sunnah


As Muslims, we all strive to be the best versions of ourselves by following the Sunnah in all walks of life. From what we’ve personally observed, the sentiment of being the best versions of ourselves as Muslims is especially heightened during Ramadan.

According to a Hadith narrated by Ibn `Abbas, 

Imagine how important it must be, that even the Prophet who was the most generous of all people, increased his generosity during Ramadan. SubhanAllah.

So, if your goal during this month is to be a good Muslim and act in accordance with Sunnah, charity is one of the ideal deeds to perform in Ramadan for you! 

With EkPlateBiryani, for as little as $5, you can earn massive rewards, follow the Sunnah, and be one of those blessed Muslims who step forth to make Ramadan a joyous month for every fasting individual.

4. All rewards in Ramadan are multiplied


We’re sure you must’ve heard about this one somewhere. However, it truly cannot be emphasised enough. The Prophet (PBUH) said, 

“Ramadan is an honorable and blessed month, and the rewards for generosity are multiplied in it. The best charity is that given in Ramadan” (Tirmidhi)

And in another hadith reported by Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) we are told that,

Imagine being rewarded for the best possible charity, being rewarded for fasting more than twice, earning the rewards of following Sunnah, and then all of those rewards being multiplied because you cared for the people around you! 

It is an opportunity that comes by once a year though, and we really encourage you not to miss it! Help us provide Iftar to the needy today.

5. You are saved from deprivation


Lastly, you should give charity in Ramadan to the needy because it beautifies your Akhirah and saves you from deprivation of blessings as well.

The Prophet S.A.W said,

Anyone who misses out on these rewards, and makes no effort to earn good deeds to please Allah in Ramadan — especially in the last 10 nights — is someone who has been unfortunately deprived of His blessings!

But if you are someone who realises that charity is the best possible deed to perform during Ramadan… 

And if you would like to help needy and vulnerable people have a Ramadan just as fulfilling as yours….

Then, we encourage you to donate to our Ramadan Thar Campaign and Daily Iftar Drives today.

JazakAllah Khair!
