On the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, Islam enjoins us to attend to the underprivileged and take care of the disadvantaged and share happiness and joy with the destitute sections of society. This Eid is also called Eid-ul-Fitr because the donation distributed among the destitute, the poor and the downtrodden sections of society before the offering of Eid prayers is called ‘Fitr’.
Ramadan is an especially opportune time to reflect on the blessings of Allah Almighty and feel for the poor. When we eat less, our stomachs shrink, and we feel full after a few bites at the end of the day. Fasting allows us to experience once a year what many throughout the world experience almost daily. Hunger, for them, is not a choice; it is simply a fact of life. In Islam, feeding people carries great virtues as can be seen from Qur’an and Hadith.
