American Muslims to Fight Hunger This Ramadan

Muslims have been long speculated to be collectively donating more money than any other groups (religious or not).

From simple acts of neighborly kindness and regular involvement in Mosque activities to establishing international non-profit organizations, the ways and means with which Muslims choose to give their time are a staggering scope.

Islamic Relief USA is working to send 5,000 Ramadan food packages to families suffering from poverty across America this season. The only way for this to happen is YOU. Donate individually; create a team fundraising effort; or volunteer for a packout. Your effort can make a huge difference for a neighbor in need.

Why It Matters 

One in 7 Americans face hunger.

Hunger is a global epidemic, but when most people think of hunger, they don’t think of the United States. It’s true, in many ways, America is the land of plenty. But 1 in 7 of our neighbors will stare at empty plates while we prepare to enjoy our special Ramadan meals.

As we strive to perfect our belief this Ramadan, let’s remember the saying of our prophet (saw): “He is not a believer who eats his fill while his neighbor beside him goes hungry.” (Bukhari)
