عَنْ النُّعْمَانِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي تَوَادِّهِمْ وَتَرَاحُمِهِمْ وَتَعَاطُفِهِمْ مَثَلُ الْجَسَدِ إِذَا اشْتَكَى مِنْهُ عُضْوٌ تَدَاعَى لَهُ سَائِرُ الْجَسَدِ بِالسَّهَرِ وَالْحُمَّى

5665 صحيح البخاري

Al-Nu’man ibn Bashir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.”

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5665, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2586


قال ابن قدامة في المغني: ويستحب أن يبدأ بالأقرب فالأقرب، إلا أن يكون منهم من هو أشد حاجة فيقدمه" ا.ه

Ibn Qudamah said in (al-mughanni): “and it is mustahab to give to those closest and then to those close (i.e. family, then neighbours then community then Ummah at large) unless there is someone more in need then they are prioritised.” end.


This year, we'll spend a Ramadhan like no other. The doors of the mosques may be closed but the doors of sadaqah remain open!

The Prophet (saw) said: “Whoever draws near to Allah during it (Ramadhan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” (Ibn Khuzaymah)

You might be struggling with the lockdown this year but it's easy to forget that many families in our midst live like this all year round. You can make a difference to families for whom social distancing and isolation is a norm.

This Ramadhan, children in over 200 shattered homes in the UK will face poverty, isolation and fear without their fathers/mothers. They provide financial, practical and emotional support to aid family members through this devastating time. The social isolation and pressures which these struggling families face throughout the year are felt all the more intensely during Ramadhan, a time of community and unity.

When Ramadhan is a time to nurture spirituality, many single mothers can’t focus on much else but their overwhelming financial burdens. And in the wake of COVID-19, with shops inflating their prices, families struggle to feed their children and spiral deeper into debt amidst the panic and hoarding.

Imagine transforming a month of pain and isolation to one of relief and compassion.

You don’t have to simply imagine. By donating to my page you can turn a child’s anxious tears into infectious smiles.

With your support, they can experience the delight of Eid through new clothes and gifts to mark the occasion. You can restore dignity to vulnerable families and allow them to truly feel the mercy of Ramadhan and find dignity, being sheltered and protected from hunger. Single mothers can be empowered with important knowledge and skills to support their household. Elderly parents, in the twilight of their lives, can find comfort in the companionship of our community.

You can lift a family out of the darkness of despair and isolation into the light of hope and mercy.

The beauty of the Race to Jannah is that it can be done wherever you are in the world, whatever hour of the day you chose, from the comfort of your own home. Forget having to arrange child care, cancelling another commitment, this is as simple as it could possibly be.

On every day, charity is due on each of our joints. That’s an even greater priority for us in Ramadhan, the month in which we’re desperate for His Mercy, desperate to be freed from the Fire, and at our most eager to follow the Prophet (saw) in his generous spirit.

Whilst we strive our best to fast the long days in the Summer heat, we inevitably fall short, but charity helps to patch up these shortcomings.
