Holiest Month of the Year

“Ramadan has come to you: a month of blessing in which Allah (SWT) covers you with blessings, sends down mercy, decreases sins, and answers prayers. In [this month], Allah looks at your competition in good deeds, and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah utmost goodness from your souls.”

– Prophet Muhammad (SAW) as narrated by Tabarani

For millions of Muslims around the world, the blessed month of Ramadan is a time of reflection, reverence, fasting, prayer, patience, and charity. For Islamic Relief, Ramadan is the month that defines us.

Honoring the traditions of this blessed month unfortunately turns into hardships for too many families in need. That is why your donations are so powerful. Not only do you fulfill the charitable obligations Allah (SWT) has set for us, but you also help relieve at least a little of the burden that a struggling family faces. 

The Power of Food

Food aid is the largest sector or Islamic Relief’s humanitarian aid, and our worldwide distribution during the month of Ramadan plays a huge role. Packed with food important to the local diet as well as essential nutrients and vitamins, our Ramadan food boxes help feed vulnerable families across the globe. This year, with your support, we’re working to provide food boxes to nearly 300,000 people with enough food for a full 30 days.


For $100, you can help alleviate the suffering of our brothers and sisters around the world.

What’s in a food box?

Provisions differ from country to country. Many include rice, wheat, lentils, oil, sugar, canned fish or meat, and dates. In some countries, in place of a physical package of food, families are given vouchers to purchase the items they need the most.
