Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)



What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Women spend more time in the kitchen during the blessed month of Ramadān, and the husband & children ask for various types of food to be made. Please could they be made to understand, so that females may spend more time in worship?

Without a shadow of a doubt, women sacrifice a great deal in the blessed month of Ramadān; they are busy day & night. Undoubtedly, such busyness of theirs is nothing below worship if they make good intentions that they will serve those fasting in order to please them for the pleasure of Allāh Almighty; Allāh Almighty will reward them immensely for these tasks. Nevertheless, husbands & children should also not keep the women of the house busy at all without reason; rather, help & assist them in order to attain reward, so that these people of Allāh can also be served as well.
