Ramadan for the year 2020 starts on Friday, April 24th lasting 30 days and ending at sundown on Saturday, May 23 Insha Allah.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the most sacred month of the year. During Ramadan, We are expected to fast, abstain from pleasures and pray to become closer to God. It is also a time for families to increase the act of charity. Almighty Allah forgives the past sins of those who observe the holy month with fasting, prayer, and faithful intention.
Allah says: O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous
Iftar! Feed a Family!
Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which forms the basis of how Muslims live their lives. The other pillars are faith, prayer, charity and making the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca.
Ramadan is also a time for profound spiritual reflection, prayer, carrying out beneficial deeds and spending time with loved ones.
It is common to have a meal (known as the suhoor) just before dawn and another (known as the iftar) directly after sunset.Make a special effort to connect with your community and reach out to people who need help, not everyone has the means for Suhoor or Iftar.

During the month of Ramadan, both fasting and acts of charity are obligatory upon Muslims who are able to do so.
Muslims are reminded to be generous and increase their charitable activities. Accordingly, during Ramadan, much charitable giving is done by the community. Donations are typically centered around providing for those stricken by poverty and hunger. Consider donating to one of these highly-rated charities which either work predominantly in nations with large Muslim populace or strive towards the alleviation of hunger. May Almighty Allah Bless you abundantly as you donate. Ameen.

Charity has great rewards. That is why the ProphetSallallaahu `Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allah exalt his mention) urged it on many occasions in his Sunnah and clarified that charity never reduces one’s wealth; rather, it increases it.
The Messenger of Allah Sallallahu `Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allah exalt his mention) said: “Charity never decreases wealth. Rather, it increases it, it increases it, it increases it.” If charity is given in Ramadan, then (its reward) is combined with the honor of time. It is known that righteous deeds in Ramadan are distinct from those performed in other months.
