Ramadan 2021


The last ten nights of Ramadan are here…

It’s been an unsettling year around the world.  Millions of people have died in this global pandemic and fallen into poverty. It’s highlighted how fragile our daily ways of life are.

We should use the gift of these last ten nights of the holy month to give to others.  Many of us have remained relatively unscathed throughout the coronavirus epidemic. We’ve been fortunate to have our basic human needs fulfilled, including access to clean water and nourishing meals.


We want your help and generosity to fulfil the needs of millions of orphans, widows and families who are struggling across West Africa, East Africa, Lebanon and Bangladesh.  With your generosity, help us distribute a million meals this Ramadan. Use your privilege. Imitate the Prophet’s (PBUH) generosity. Get gifting.

As Ibn ‘Abbas narrated: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good.” [Bukhari]

Is Ramadan a good time to give charity?

Ramadan is the best time to increase one’s sadaqah, pay one’s zakat if it is due or start giving regular charity as your rewards for good deeds are multiplied!

What if I am unable to fast?

Fidyah a charity given by those who can’t fast due to old age, illness or any other impairment.  Fidyah consists of paying for 2 meals for a person per day of fasting missed.   Kaffara is made for fasts missed unnecessarily – for example, if someone misses or breaks a fast in the month of Ramadan without a valid reason.

Is my Ramadan donation tax deductible?

Yes!  All developmental donations with MATW are fully tax deductible.

How do my food packs get delivered in time?

MATW works all year with field agents and ambassadors to prepare your food packs in advance.  We liaise with food suppliers, making sure the food in the pack meets nutritional needs and local cultural expectations. We deliver throughout Ramadan checking in with our partners every day. You can give your donation to the food packs at any time during Ramadan. This means that even if you donate in the last 10 days, we ensure that a family has received their food pack on time.

Who should pay Zakat Al Fitr?

Zakat al-Fitr should be paid on behalf of everyone in the family.

Where does my Zakat go?
