NOiR: Endowing Wednesday

[Qur’an in Ramadan 19:Q27.82-Q29.69]

Today is the day we endow someone with a gift with this question in the front of our minds: Will I be happy to receive what I give?
uquran
Think of someone you would like to give a gift. While we tend to save our gifts for Eid, think of the bonus we miss by not giving gifts in Ramadan instead. It doesn’t have to be over-the-top but it should be for the sake of Allah.

It may be something really special and expensive or simply thoughtful but cheap. It could range from a phone recharge card to a pack of sweets for fasting children. And it should not be limited to Muslims; non-Muslims can also benefit from our largesse.

Remember to be careful about whom you endow with a gift, and work within your means.

P.S. My dad passed away this day in Ramadhan, 3 years ago. It would mean a lot to me if you could spare a du’a for him. May Allah forgive his sins and grant him Al-Jannah.

  1. Rukayyat says:

    May Allah forgive him and grant him al jannatu firdaus. Ameen.

    it was
    narrated that the Prophet
    (peace and blessings of Allaah
    be upon him) said: “Whoever
    says Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah
    (there is no god but Allaah),
    seeking the Face of Allaah
    and that was his final action,
    will enter Paradise. Whoever
    fasts one day seeking the
    Face of Allaah and that was his
    final action, will enter
    Paradise. Whoever gives
    charity seeking the Face of
    Allaah and that was his final
    action will enter Paradise.”
    Narrated by Imam Ahmad,
    22813, from the hadeeth of
    Hudhayfah (may Allaah be
    pleased with him). Al-Albaani
    said in Ahkaam al-Janaa’iz: its
    isnaad is saheeh.
