Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah walaihi. Hope you are all fine by the grace of Allah. During Ramadan, people try their best to do charity. Muslims lavishly offer ifter to fasting people, donate money, entertain people, give away jakat and fitra. Then comes Eid-ul-Fitr at the start of Shawwal. Now Muslims wait for the Zu al-Hijja when they try to ensure protein for everyone on three days of Eid-ul-Adha. Meat or beef is distributed among the seekers with good intentions. Those who sacrifice animals want to help celebrate the day for the destitute in need. But the acts of benevolence should not be restricted within some occasions. Rather it should be round the year as for charity works, one doesn’t need to be rich but it requires one to be human, sensible, empathetic or at least sympathetic to the problem of fellows, be they poor or rich. Humanitarian works should be done for the sake of humanity. Charity works should not be a vehicle for being famous. As charity works cost a volunteer a lot of time, s/he should carefully schedule his time. Even if the work is rewarding, it can be hard to do. But not all charity work is hard to do. But many people are out there working for the helpless and poor people from the core of their heart. Volunteers can work in the kitchen of an orphanage and help to cook food for the homeless people as well as for the people from orphanage. So cover story this time focuses on charity.
Hope to get back to you in the next month.
