What Are the Benefits of Giving Charity During Ramadan?

The month of Ramadan is one of the most sacred months in the Islamic calendar that brings opportunities to seek the forgiveness and mercy of Allah through acts of kindness and worshipping. In addition to observing fasting, the real essence of this month is to practice positivity in every aspect. The best thing to reap rewards in this sacred month is to do charity during Ramadan.

Helping those in need is one of the greatest virtues and can earn you countless blessings in this world and hereafter. Though charity can reward you throughout the year, however, practicing it during Ramadan is considered the best time according to this Hadith reference which narrates:

The Prophet (S.A.W) was asked which fast was most virtuous after Ramadan? He said: “Sha’ban in honour of Ramadan“. He was then asked: “Which charity is best?” He (saw) said: “Charity in Ramadan.“

Here is why Ramadan charity is more precious than donating to help others throughout the year!

Benefits of Giving Charity During RamadanBenefits of Giving Charity in Islam

The significance of Ramadan and benefits of giving charity in Islam can be analysed with this reference from the Holy Quran:

“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.”  (Surah al-Baqarah 2:261)

This Quranic verse explains that every charity has a continuous effect that earns you rewards throughout your life. It also signifies that charity during Ramadan will be much more rewarding as compared to throughout the year.

In this Hadith, our beloved Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) encouraged us to help others and give charity as:

“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
