Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid – Islam’s most important religious festival. Eid marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. During Eid, it is customary for everyone who can afford it to donate a sum of money, Sadaqatul-fitr, so that the poor will also be able to eat their fill during the Eid. Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Exchange presents with one another, for they remove ill feelings from the hearts” (Tirmidhi).
Giving a gift indicates you felt they were important enough to merit the time and trouble it took to find something appropriate. Our Eid Gift programme provided much needed funds to some of the poorest families, gifted food packs and organised parties for children who have lost so much. Due to the amazing generosity of our donors, children and needy all over the world were able to experience the happiness of Eid.
