RAMADAN IFTAR PACK
The prophet peace be upon him said من فطر صائما فله مثل أجره، من غير أن ينقص من أحر الصائم شيء
Whoever break a fast for a fast person, he has the reward of his reward, without decreasing from his own (fast person) reward.
It was narrated that Zayd ibn Khaalid al-Juhani said: The Messenger of Allaah(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever gives iftaar to a fasting person will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.”
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, who said it is a saheeh hasan hadeeth.
This hadeeth is indicative of the virtue of giving iftaar (“breakfast”) to those who are fasting, and shows that there is a great reward for that, namely a reward equivalent to that of the one who is fasting, and Allaah knows best, because the one who is fasting deserves to be honoured, and feeding him is an act of charity, an act of respect for his fast and a means of upholding ties with one who does acts of worship. This is something that the Muslims are used to doing, because they understand the great reward that results from that.
The month of Ramadaan is a month in which Allaah bestows abundant mercy and forgiveness upon His slaves and ransoms them from the Fire, and Allaah has mercy upon those of His slaves who show mercy. Giving iftaar to one who fasts is similar in many ways to feeding the poor by giving them food to eat or money with which to buy food, but it does not apply only to the poor.
Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid https://islamqa.info/en/ref/islamqapages/52 for more …
A combination of fasting and feeding others is a most effective means of expiation and protecting oneself from Hell, especially if qiyaam al-layl is added to that. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to Mu’aadh ibn Jabal (may Allaah be pleased with him): “Shall I not tell you of the means of goodness? Fasting is a shield, and charity extinguishes sins as water extinguishes fire, and a man’s prayer in the middle of the night.” Then he recited (interpretation of the meaning):
“Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and
they spend (in charity in Allaah’s Cause) out of what We have bestowed
17. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do”
So Let someone get fed from you during the holy month
