I remember when I was in school, my non-Muslim friends often asked me silly questions about fasting. Well I figured they were just clueless, but then they asked again the next year and the next year, with the same blooming (I can’t curse) questions!
Thankfully, Ramadan taught me patience.
Fasting month is a blessing month for us Muslims. It’s the time where we reflect and re-evaluate ourselves as a Muslim; being kind and doing good deeds are on top of the list. Supposedly at the same time, it would teach us to refrain ourselves from hating, cursing or doing any other dreadful sins.
Fasting is also to remind us the suffering of the less fortunate; giving donations and feeding the hungry are also two of the favourite things to do during Ramadan.
Few days ago, I stumbled upon The Date Project on Instagram and it took me less than ten minutes to order three tins of Medjool (the yummiest) dates – because it’s for an absolute good cause and most importantly ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the profits will go to those in need in Palestine, Syria and Pakistan.
There are 4 tins (each contains 1kg of Medjool dates):
- Dates4Orphans – provides education and opportunity for an orphan
- Dates4Syria – Provides 50 loaves of bread
- Dates4Palestine – Provides 500 litres of water
- Dates4Pakistan – Helps restore eyesight
And they are only £10 each (100% donation). If anyone interested, you may order them here. (I’m not being sponsored by the way, just doing this for my own happiness.)
Ramadan card (each box gets one) designed by Syrian orphans. So cute.
Last but not least, I just wanted to wish Ramadan Mubarak/Selamat Berpuasa to all my fellow Muslims readers! May your prayers be answered, and may you be blessed with joy and peace throughout the month, InshaAllah.
Thank you for reading this post.
Lots of love,
