One of the virtues of Ramadan is giving charity. giving charity is commendable at any time of the year, but it's especially valuable during Ramadan and the Prophet Mohammed atta, who stood out to us.

00:00:15--> 00:00:58

It was reported that he was not only the most generous person. But in Ramadan, he was even more generous, he would go above and beyond to give in charity during Ramadan. And this is very harmonious with the point of what Ramadan is all about. Ramadan is about discovering Allah's Bounty discovering a lot of abundance. If we believed in scarcity, then we would never fast from above. Because we would think, Oh, there's not enough to go around, I need my eight hours of sleep, and I need my coffee and I need my certain amount of calories during the day, or else I can't function. Log us to the side, you don't get to decide the calories don't get to the side a lot controls,

00:00:59--> 00:01:18

right. And so Allah is the one who gets to decide who functions and who doesn't function who survives and who doesn't survive. And so this whole month is an exercise in discovering that bounty. Now, what's the biggest proof that you've discovered that bounty is to give away the things that you have and give away the things that you even love?

00:01:19--> 00:01:31

And so that's why in this time, where you're hungry and you're tired, and you're thinking, Oh, I can't wait until I get to break my fast and have my coffee and do whatever I'm going to do.

00:01:33--> 00:01:46

To on top of that not just suffer through the fasting day but to bring yourself to give away things to other people, especially food, but also money. That's a tremendously valuable spiritual act.
