Ramadan Services Of FDS
Ramadan is a month in which Muslims around the world observe fasting during the hours of daylight. Fasting in the Islamic context involves abstinence during the daylight period from food, liquids, medicine, and sexual contact. Fasting is an obligatory act upon all Muslims over the age of puberty, both men and women, rich and poor. However, fasting is not required from those for whom it would be medically harmful, and those who cannot observe it due to travel or other acknowledged factors such as menstruation. During the month of fasting Muslims are encouraged to be particularly charitable. Feeding people at the end of the fasting day represents a very rewarding spiritual act according to Islamic tradition and teachings. The FDS Ramadan food distribution project provides food to needy people across the country who face food insecurity and hunger. The project is designed to operate in conjunction with other relief and development programs that provide more sustainable assistance to beneficiaries.
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: Allah’s Apostle was the most generous of all the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan when Jibraeel met him. Jibraeel used to meet him every night of Ramadan to teach him the Qur’an. Allah’s Apostle was the most generous person, even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds).
