Monday June 29, 2015 – Kashmiri Muslims wash their faces, arms and feet before prayers outside the Jamia Masjid grand mosque during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, in Srinagar.
Ramadan for Muslims world over is a highly rewarding spiritual period of reflection, improvement and increased devotion towards God.
Ramadan also teaches Muslims empathy for those who are less fortunate; thus encouraging actions of generosity and compulsory charity popularly known as Zakat. Charity is very important in Islam, and even more so during Ramadan.
Zakat, is obligatory and a fixed percentage of the person’s savings is required to be given to the poor. In Islam, all good deeds are more handsomely rewarded during Ramadan than in any other month of the year. There is also the voluntary charity, Sadaqah where one can give above and beyond what is required from the obligation of Zakat.
