Empower Hope: Sponsor an Orphan through our charity this Ramadan

For Muslims worldwide, Ramadan is deeply significant both culturally and spiritually. This month commemorates the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad. Muslims practise greater prayer, Quranic recitation, and charitable deeds in addition to fasting. It’s a time to strengthen ties to family and community, engage in spiritual reflection, and ask for forgiveness.

In Islam, donating to charity is a good deed and a very fulfilling one. In Islam, a genuine act of kindness and charity is considered Sunnah, a virtue that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) greatly cherished and highly advocated. In addition to providing food, education, and the essential tools to start a business and get back on their feet, you can help an orphan during Ramadan by supporting them.

Why Donate to Orphanages?

For children who have lost their parents or have no family support system, orphanages provide safe havens, providing them with food, clothing, and education. Yet more money is required for many of these important institutions. Contributions are essential in closing this gap.

This page highlights the importance of supporting orphanages, provides information on how to donate, and lists several worthy groups. Donors may guarantee that underprivileged children receive basic necessities, an education, psychological support, and the opportunity for a better future.

All efforts, whether they be in the form of financial donations, vital products, or volunteer work, contribute to improving the lives of these at-risk kids.

Why Should You Sponsor An Orphan In Ramadan?

Sponsoring a child now allows that child to support himself and their community later on. At Muslim Aid, much of our work is dedicated to creating an international education sponsorship scheme that will benefit thousands of children worldwide.

The next generation will determine our fate. Their means of subsistence are vital to both our collective survival and our ability to stand out as contemporary humans.

Raising children and giving them access to quality healthcare and education helps battle sickness, fight poverty, provide a more conducive environment for learning and living, and provide future generations with the means to develop into self-sufficient, growing, and improving people.

What Are The Benefits Of Sponsoring An Orphan In This Life?

One of the strongest warnings in the Quran is for believers to adopt orphans and raise them as members of their own families. This exhortation is also strongly encouraged in the Prophet’s peace be upon him, intercession. (Refer to Islamic Orphan Sponsorship). However, the benefits of sponsoring an orphan do not end in death.

They start providing instant and long-lasting benefits to the believing sponsor here on Earth. These are the top six rewards Allah (SWT) gives upon the orphan sponsor during their lifetime.

  • It Ennobles Your House Among Muslims
  • It Blesses Your Wealth
  • It protects its giver from the trials and temptations of wealth and miserliness and elicits Allah’s forgiveness.
  • It Softens Your Heart
  • It helps place one among the righteous in the sight of God
  • It will continue to stream good deeds into your divine scales after you die
