Some amazing ways to be more charitable this #Ramadan

Ramadan is regarded as a catalyst for internal cleansing and receiving the mercy and blessings of 'The One' who created us and all that there is. Charity is one of the key pillars of Islam and it's an axiom how 'giving' brings out the best in people.

Here are some ways to be more charitable this Ramadan.

1. Clean up your closet: Take 10 minutes and some effort to clean up your closet. Some of us don't like to wear the same clothes twice. Clothe someone in need. Donate away some blankets, clothes or whatever else you can. There are a lot of organizations contributing to this. It's just a matter of Googling ­čÖé One of these organization is Dubai Cares and of course, If you are a regular at the malls, you certainly might have heard of Collection Boxes. #GoDonate

2. Collect and donate leftovers:  Unfortunately, a lot of food goes to waste; that too during the holy month of Ramadan. Get your friends and family members along and collect the leftover food so that it can be donated to a fasting person or someone in need.

3. Offer Zakat as whole: Zakat literally means "that which purifies". Whereas in general, Zakat is charity. It's one of the five pillars of Islam. It is customarily 2.5% of a earning Muslim's total savings and wealth above a minimum amount known as Nisab. After prayers, Zakat is the most important activity in Islam.

4. Offer a job to someone who needs it:  This, in itself is one of the best practise to help someone. If you are in a position to help a person get a job; that, by far, is the best way to go.
