‘And We have not sent you, O Muhammad, except as a mercy to the worlds.’ (Source - Quran 21:107)
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the epitome of mercy, instructing us to show compassion to one another ‘He who does not show mercy to others, will not be shown mercy.’
Now, more than ever, the world needs us to follow his sunnah of mercy. As we enter the blessed month of Ramadan, around the world, the Ummah faces intensifying conflicts, urgent climate crises, devastating disasters, disease outbreaks and soaring inflation.
Communities around the world need our mercy now. We must not delay in helping those who are being plunged deeper into poverty, and oppression. Nobody should feel abandoned and alone in the most blessed month. Make this Ramadan a time of mercy to those in the Ummah facing conflict, hunger, and displacement.
We give with compassion because it is the heart of our religion, but those who show mercy are also promised Allah’s mercy.
Be a mercy to the most vulnerable people, and reap the multiplied blessings of the month of mercy.
Support the Ummah
An estimated 345 million people don’t know where their next meal will come from – devastatingly, that’s twice as many people as last year. More than 117 million people will be forced to flee their homes by the end of this year according to UNHCR. All over the globe, families are being forced to abandon their homes just to survive amid violence and climate disasters. They are going hungry. They are without safe shelter. They are out of school. They are struggling to afford the healthcare that would save their lives.
This Ramadan, be the mercy they need. Help those in the Ummah who are abandoned and forgotten, trying to survive, and reap the multiplied blessings of giving in Ramadan.
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time,” (Ibn Khyzaymah)
