Ramadan is a special time of year all around the world. It is a month of fasting, prayer, and reflection, and it is also a time for showing kindness and generosity to others. Many Muslims living abroad choose to send money back home during this time, either to support their families or to contribute to charitable causes.
Ramadan is all about family and charity
During Ramadan, families come together to break their fast and share meals. During Iftar, families often gather together to share food, stories, and laughter, and to strengthen the bonds of family and community. Moreover, Muslims are encouraged to focus on their relationships with others, especially their families. This month may be used to reconcile with loved ones and mend broken relationships. By putting family first, Muslims enhance their sense of community, love, and compassion, and emerge from Ramadan feeling more connected to those around them.
Moreover, Ramadan is also a time to show compassion toward those in need and family is often the first place to turn. During Ramadan, expenses increase. Families need to buy food for Iftar, decorations, gifts, and other necessities to celebrate the holy month. It is common for expats to support their families during Ramadan which also demonstrates their commitment to kindness and generosity. Their contributions make them feel as if they never left.
It doesn’t end there. Muslims all over the world are encouraged to be charitable and to help those who are less fortunate, whether to fulfill religious duties, show compassion to those in need, or create a sense of community. This can include giving food, money, or other resources to those who may be in need.
