Donate to a charity during Ramadan
Muslims believe that it was during Ramadan that God sent angel Jibrail (Gabriel) to reveal the first verses of the Quran, Islam’s sacred text, to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. They do not eat or drink anything between sunrise and sunset, after which they enjoy a nightly feast known as iftar. Fasting is one of the five pillars, or obligations, of Islam. The aim of fasting is to bring Muslims closer to God, encourage self-discipline and serve as a reminder of those less fortunate.
Ramadan is a month of blessings and reward. Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) said: Every action a son of Adam does shall be multiplied by ten times its value, up to 700 times. Allah says: With the exception of fasting, which belongs to Me, and I reward it accordingly. (Al-Bukhari)
