E-Mal Powered by eFatoora to Support 5 Selected Charities as Part of Road Map
The holy month of Ramadan is right around the corner. Muslims across the world and from all walks of life will be uniting in a fast during the daylight hours, as well as engaging in worship and focusing on self-reflection and family. 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 increase their charitable activities. As a result, during Ramadan, much charitable giving is done by the community. Donations are usually focused on giving to those stricken by poverty and hunger. e-Mal powered by eFatoora is focussing on a long-term donation structure for 5 selected charities within the UAE that will in return offer more than food.
