E-Mal Launched by eFatoora Supports Labour Camps During Ramadan
The holy month of Ramadan is almost over and Eid celebrations are about to start. One of the Five Pillars of Islam, Zakat, is the practice of charitable giving and so Ramadan is also a time of increased charity, especially in Muslim countries. During Ramadan, both fasting and acts of charity are obligatory upon Muslims who are able to do so. Fasting from sunrise to sunset is representative of a spiritual cleansing, an effort to become closer to God, and an attempt to gain a better understanding of human suffering. The act of fasting calls for Muslims to practice self-discipline and sacrifice, as well as reflect upon and show compassion for the poor and less fortunate. Muslims are reminded to be generous and to increase their charitable activities. As a result, during Ramadan, e-Mal powered by eFatoora has been focusing on migrant workers at labour camps.
