Lecture: Ramadan – Service to the Community
Too often we get lost in our own world, don’t we? Especially when we have problems….
Ramadan isn’t just the month of Salah and Fasting. It’s also the month where we help out others. And it should not be the only month where we do this.
I’d advise everyone to make community service a part of their regular lives (and when I say “community”, I mean the people around you, not just those of the same “race” as you!).
Why should you do so? Because:
1) It is a sign of a believer – Don’t believe me? Read the Quran and the authentic ahadeeth to see how the believers of the past helped out those around them.
2) It is a way to please Allah -This is enough reason to do it.
3) It’ll stop you from wallowing in your own misery and make you realise the kind of hardship that others are going through.
4) Making others happy will make you happy – Trust me.
Here’s a lecture that I’m currently listening to. So far so good.
