The Holy Prophet (pbuh&hp) is reported to have said: “Whoever provides iftar [food for breaking the fast] of a fasting person in it [the month of Ramadan], will be granted forgiveness for his sins.” [Al-Burujurdy, Jami ahadith al-Shia, vol. 9. p. 268]
Everyone is invited to provide iftar for local needy people who are fasting in the blessed month of Ramadhan. For only $15.00 (US), you can provide a full meal to a needy fasting person who is otherwise not able to provide iftar for themselves, and earn spiritual rewards. Please note the following:
- The $15.00 (US) amount for one iftar covers all the expenses for a complete, cooked meal, or the ingredients of a complete meal.
- If your donation arrives after the 15th of Ramadan, then the money will be spent feeding the poor in general.
- Please share this initiative with all those you love and wish well in life.
Note: After having inquired from the different charitable organizations that I.M.A.M. works with, we have been informed that a full meal for iftar this year costs between 12 to 18 US dollars. Therefore, the average cost of $15.00 will be a sufficient amount with which I.M.A.M. can serve the fasting in need this year. Thank you.
