Give Iftar and Sahur this Ramadan

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.

“Whoever gives food to a fasting person with which to break his fast will have a reward equal to his, without it detracting in the slightest from the reward of the fasting person” Al-Tirmidhi

The Duke of Sussex has said racism from the tabloid press that filtered into the rest of society was a “large part” of why he and his wife left the UK.

Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey that the UK tabloid media is “bigoted” and creates a “toxic environment” of “control and fear”.

He said he thought the Prince of Wales had to “make peace with it”.

The Society of Editors said the media is not bigoted and is holding the “rich and powerful to account”.

Meghan said social media had made the relationship with the press like “the wild, wild West” and said the Royal Family’s press operation failed to defend her and Harry from untrue stories.

In the much-anticipated interview with Oprah, Harry and Meghan covered a range of deeply personal topics, including racism, mental health, their relationship with the media and Royal Family dynamics.

The two-hour interview was broadcast last night in the US and is due to be screened in the UK on ITV at 21:00 GMT on Monday night and on ITV Hub, courtesy of Harpo Productions/CBS.
