It’s the month of Ramadan.
It’s almost Iftar time.
There are four persons sitting around an old aluminum plate with a few dates on it.
In a bowl, there is some flattened rice soaked in milk. The still glass contains sugar sherbet.
Among the four, the grandpa and grandma are fasting but the children are not. However, they join their grandparents for iftar.
The food on the floor is the iftar that was purchased by you. Shorobor delivered it to people who pray five times daily and fasts during the month of Ramadan.
The iftar package is often shared with kids too. They too wish to fast. They ask their grandfather to wake them up during suhur.
The month of Ramadan is a month of happiness for this family because they know they have something to eat at iftar for the whole month of Ramadan.
Your purchased iftar packages will reach remote villages – people are mostly poor.
We crossed rivers, rode horse/ox-driven carriages, or even walked miles after miles as there are no motorized vehicles in many of the chars and hills we travel to distribute the iftar packages you purchase.
Our iftar package includes –
1. Good quality dates (1 kg)
2. Sugar, Deshi Chini (1 kg)
3. Flattened Rice, Chira (1.5 kg)
4. Vitalac – Full cream Milk powder (0.5 kg)
Each iftar package cost BDT 600 only.
Our aim is to sell all iftar packages by the month of Shaban so that our Muslim brothers in need can break their first siyam with food provided with your iftar package.
We don’t want to make people wait for their iftar packages after Ramadan starts.
Why are we doing this project?
It was reported by Zaid Bin Khalid Juhani (May Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet Mohammad (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) said,
Whoever feeds iftar to a fasting person, will get the same reward as the fasting person, without losing the fasting person losing any of its rewards.
(Trimidhi 807, Ibnu Majah 1446, Ahmed 21168, Daremi 1702)
We want everyone to act on the basis of hadith as much as they can. Shorobor’s iftar package program is to assist those who would not be able to do so.
