 The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

“Every act of goodness is charity.”

As we prepare for the blessed month of Ramadhan we hope this blessed month will be filled with generosity, forgiveness, happiness, good deeds, and peace for everyone. In addition to the purification of the soul by fasting in Ramadhan, we must also try to embody one of the major teachings of Islam – to exhibit kindness during the month – something that naturally resonates with an elevated soul and which  the world is in dire need of at the present time.

At HHUGS this Ramadhan, we want to share a  meaningful activity that people of all ages will enjoy and benefit from with our Ramadhan Acts of Kindness Calendar. We have collated 30  acts of kindness which take minimum effort and will provide immense reward. Every good deed is a step to spiritual fulfilment and the reward gets multiplied many times.When speaking of the excellence of good deeds, it was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said:

“Every action a son of Adam does shall be multiplied—a good action 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)

There are acts of kindness that we can do that take little effort but which can make a big difference to the people around us. Consideration for parents, for elders, for friends, neighbours – even strangers! - can fill them with a sense of fulfilment and appreciation. So, let’s use our calendar as a reminder to be kind and make a difference to those around you and to add to the scales of your good deeds in the simplest and easiest of ways.

Show Gratitude

Be Thoughtful

Spend Time With People

Be Charitable

 

When the Prophet (SAW) was asked: “From what do we give charity every day?” He  answered: “The doors of goodness are many…enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one’s legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one’s arms-all of these are charity prescribed for you.” He also said: “Your smile for your brother is charity.”

Perhaps the most common act of kindness recognized and valued by all is charity. By being charitable and giving Zakat, one ensures that the less fortunate get a chance to enjoy the amenities of life and spend quality time, which in ordinary days is something beyond their reach. This Ramadhan, in the month the Prophet (saw) was at his most generous, a month he (saw) described as the best to give sadaqah, resolve to be charitable in whatever way you can, other than just paying your obligated Zakat. Support our work this Ramadhan and make a difference to families who are marginalised and trapped in a tunnel of darkness and despair. Throughout Ramadhan and beyond, these families are left to struggle in isolation every year. Be a light of hope in their time of darkness and make a difference today.
