Fasting 10-Year-Old Boy Cooks for Poor during Ramadan

0 1

The month of Ramadan is definitely a month of sharing and solidarity, and Muslims exert efforts during the holy month to give charity to the needy.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

So what a 10-year-old boy from London is doing is highly remarkable. The young Muslim is cooking meals for the poor while fasting during Ramadan to raise money for a UK Muslim charity.

“There are a lot of people that don’t have the opportunities like us,” Zaavier Khan told Arab News.

“They don’t have enough money and enough food, and some don’t have a house, so I’m experiencing my first Ramadan fasting with a desire to make a difference to those in need the most.

“Once I found out that there were about 8 million people in the UK with no food, I wanted to raise money to feed them.”

Khan is raising money to pay for food parcels worth £5,000 ($6,940) through donations. The money will be used for Human Appeal’s UK food parcels which distributed more than 4,500 parcels to people in need last year.

Only Fasting Kid

Being the only British Muslim in his class, “he is the only one fasting so, having to show a lot of patience,” his mother told Arab News.
