Ramadan Palestinian Food bank 2021

When is Ramadan 2021?

The Islamic calendar follows the phases of the moon, commonly known as the lunar cycle. As a result, the Holy month of Ramadan falls approximately 10 days earlier each year in the Gregorian calendar. The Ramadan start date for 2021 is expected to begin on Monday 12th April 2021, following the sighting of the moon over Mecca. Lasting for 30 days, Ramadan will end on Tuesday 11th May 2021, with the celebratory days of Eid al-Fitr starting on Wednesday 12th May 2021 or Thursday 13th May 2021.

Sawm

Sawm is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and the Arabic word for ‘fasting’. Although fasting occurs elsewhere in the Islamic calendar, it is primarily associated with the month of Ramadan for the month-long fast. Fasting is a key part of Ramadan and all those of able body and sound mind should fast during this Holy time. Sawm takes place every day from sunrise to sunset and our Ramadan timetable of daylight hours makes it easier to prepare. It is essential to familiarise yourself with the fasting times as anyone who is still eating their suhoor (pre-dawn meal), at the completion of the Fajr (call to prayer) is disqualified from that day’s fast.

The sunset and the start of Maghrib prayers mark the end of the day’s fast. It is traditional to break the fast by eating dates, a proven healthy snack, before iftar (evening meal) which is normally eaten with friends and family.

Eid al-Fitr

Eid al-Fitr meaning ‘Festival of Breaking the Fast’, is the important holiday that follows the month of Ramadan. Celebrated for up to three days, Eid al-Fitr does not begin until the sighting of the moon although is expected to start on Wednesday 12th May or Thursday 13th May 2021. It is a time for great feasts, the giving of gifts to children and spending time with those dearest to you. Check with your local mosque for confirmation of dates and any community activities that are taking place near you.

Zakat al-Fitr

Before the end of Ramadan and the special Eid al-Fitr prayer, all Muslims should make Zakat al-Fitr, a charitable contribution traditionally of a staple food item. Intended to help those less fortunate to enjoy the celebration of Eid al-Fitr with their friends and loved ones, you can donate Zakat al-Fitr through Muslim Aid and we will distribute food items to those most in need.

You can donate Zakat al-Fitr anytime throughout the month, however, like Zakat, many people choose to make their donation on Laylat al-Qadr (the Night of Power) which falls in the last 10 days of Ramadan. The Night of Power is a special time, in which rewards are multiplied.

Refer to our Ramadan calendar 2021 to help you plan the best time to make your donation.

As people used to Noor Work , this year we will continue by working in Ramadan under the name of ” Ramadan Palestinian Food Bank 2021″ and we all work with ‘The magic of the word‘ when we deal with needed people:

### You make them feel like they are-love-Not in need

Summary ” RAMADAN FOOD BANK 2021″

The deterioration of the economic condition due to COVID-19 has effected refugee families disproportionately, especially those with disabled children and those who live off a daily wage. Our Ramadan Food Bank campaign aims to distribute 500 food boxes to these families whose lives will continue to be negatively affected during the pandemic.

Challenge

As Israel rolls out one of the fastest COVID-19 vaccination programmes in the world, Palestinians are being left behind. Not only are we victims to medical apartheid but to the devastating economical effects too.

Families with disabled children as well as those who live off a daily wage are left unable to afford the basics essentials.

Solution

To support our community during this difficult time, we’ve merged our annual Ramadan and Iftar campaigns to provide essentials such as food and medicine to 500 families.

With Ramadan just a few months away we want to ensure no one goes to sleep on an empty stomach. No matter how small a donation you can spare, it will make a huge difference.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term development, awareness, educational and feeding programs to support our cause. In co-operation with credible, potential partners in all sectors.

May Allah grant you every good step that you erase a sin and raise your destiny with Allah Almighty Ahhah bless you and may Ahhah reward you for your contributions to the Palestinian Food Bank for the year 2021 and do not forget that we are all a help to people. Donate to Food bank 2021 https://www.globalgiving.org/donate/52004/nour-charitable-society/
