Muslims have been advised to embrace charity work and supporting vulnerable people in society during Ramadan in a bid to alleviate wide spread poverty.
Eminence Mufti Ibin Menk of Zimbabwe says it’s the only way to show brotherhood and tap blessings from Allah.
“Ramadan is not the period for you to enjoy eating and happiness with your family alone but time to share with less privileged people so that Allah blesses you more,” Menk said.
The visiting Mufti made the remarks at Ramathan charity dinner held at Pearl of Africa Hotel on Monday.
He further scoffed at men who produce many children with out caring and supporting the families.
” What do you gain from having many children you can not care for and support to have good life. Allah teaches us to have manageable family that we should support and care for to live in happiness,” he said.
He appealed to sheikhs and other Muslim leaders to shun this life style and preach message of unity and having small families to reduce domestic violence in families.
Aya Group chairman Mohamed Hamid pledged to support youth and community by building community centres and schools to ensure Muslims children go to school to acquire knowledge to become productive in life.
Prof Badru Katerega renowned educationist and entrepreneur appealed to the youth always to look out for successful people to mentor them and inspire them to succeed in their careers.
Ramadan, also spelled Ramazan, Ramzan, Ramadhan or Ramathan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community.
