Ramadan comprises prayers, charity, and reflecting on the holy book Quran Majeed. One of the foremost pillars of Islam is fasting during Ramadan while the other are faith, prayer, charity, and pilgrimage to Mecca. Muslims observe fasting to show sympathy towards the poor and needy. They not only fast for hours, but also consider giving money to charity or anyone in need.
In Islam, acts of kindness are regarded as a form of charity (Bukhari, Muslim). During Ramadhan, the Prophet (S.A.W) would be EVEN MORE generous in giving charity (Bukhari). If someone wants to earn high value rewards, then helping others is a deed of great value. Our Prophet PBUH on many occasions himself did many acts of service towards his companions to set an example for us and stating that the leader of the people is their servant. Small acts of kindness towards others receive great emphasis in the teachings of Islam. Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
