Virtues of giving iftar to the one who is fasting

Zayd ibn Khaalid al-Juhani narrates: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Whoever gives iftar to the one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 807; Ibn Maajah, 1746

Companions and the generations after them were keen to provide food for others during and after Ramadan. They used to treat opening someone’s fast as one of the best of righteous deeds.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Benefits of providing food for the fasting

Feeding the fasting for the sake of Allah is an act of Ibaadah. From it stems many other acts of worship such as creating love and friendship towards those who are given the food, which is a means of entering Paradise.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“You will not enter Paradise until you truly believe, and you will not truly believe until you love one another.”

Narrated by Muslim, 54

Eating together also fosters the practice of sitting with righteous people and seeking reward by helping them to do acts of worship for which they gain strength by eating your food. Ramadan is only here for a short period i.e. 29 or 30 days, you never know whether it will come back in your lifetime. Take advantage of this month O Muslims…
