Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an but it is also a month of charity.
Ramadan is a month where Muslims are more generous than other months of the year as rewards for good deeds are multiplied.
The prophet Muhammad ﷺ was more charitable in this month
‘Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet ﷺ was the most generous of the people and he was even more generous during the month of Ramadan when Jibreel visited him. Jibreel, upon him be peace, would meet with him every night of Ramadan until the end of the month and the Prophet would recite the Quran to Jibreel. When Jibreel met him, he would be more generous than a fast wind bringing rain.’ Sahih Bukhari
During Ramadan, we are inundated with fundraising appeals for various good causes around the world and sometimes it can be hard to decide which appeal to donate to.
With this in mind, our friends at LaunchGood have developed a unique way of giving during the month of Ramadan.
Automate Your Blessings
The Ramadan Challenge allows you to automate your blessings where a specified amount is automatically donated from your bank account on each day of Ramadan. All you have to do is sign up and enter your details and the system will do the rest. You can choose to donate anything from £2 a day to £15 or any specified amount and the payments are secured by Stripe.
The campaigns to which the money will be donated will be hand-picked by the LaunchGood team to ensure a wide range of campaigns can be supported whether its supporting orphans in Pakistan, Syrian refugees or to help build a mosque/madrassah. All campaigns are verified.
There is also an option to manually donate where you’ll have a chance to choose which campaign the donation goes towards.
Muslims Unite in Goodness
Last year, more than £1.2m was raised by over 15,000 participants for 488 campaigns. InshaAllah this year, more money will be donated.
Deeds are Multiplied in Ramadan
In Ramadan, the reward for each deed is multiplied 70 times so donating just £1 a day is like donating £70 a day. But it is not limited to that, Allah can reward a person how He wills depending on their sincerity and intention.
Furthermore, Laylatul Qadr is likely to be in the odd nights of the last 10 nights of Ramadan and we know that Laylatul Qadr is better than 1000 months. This means donating in Laylatul Qadr is like donating every single day for 83 years and 4 months!
So by taking part in LaunchGood’s Ramadan Challenge, you’ll earn so much reward with little effort. Allahu Akbar!
Win a trip to Umrah
To make this year’s Ramadan Giving Challenge even more special, LaunchGood are giving away three trips to Umrah. Every time someone donates they’ll be entered into a draw.This Ramadan, help us provide clean and safe water to the people of Gaza.
