Rabi Al – Awwal: The illuminated month

Male in Gaza reading the Adhan

Rabi al Awwal is the month in which Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was born, and the month he led his followers from Makkah to Madinah. History regards him as one of the greatest people of all time. He was a man of extraordinary character and full of compassion, humility, and generosity. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) loved his entire ummah, and we love him.

The blessed days of Rabi Al- Awwal are here! In this month of his birth, and also of his passing, let’s follow in his footsteps and give generously. Connect with the Messenger (SAW) by following his Sunnah and giving in charity in this special month.

£35/ month / £1.15 per day – Caring for an orphan helps give a vulnerable child food, shelter, clothing, medical aid, and a quality education. Give an orphan a brighter future for £35/month.

£50 – Where most needed – Give, and help vulnerable people who urgently need our support.

£60 – provide clean water – the best of charities is in giving water. Ensure the people in Gaza have safe, clean water for years to come by helping us to build a water desalination plant.

Virtues of Rabi al Awwal

• A beautiful opportunity to draw close to Allah (SWT) by reflecting on the Prophet’s (SAW) life.

• A season for reaping maximum rewards by following the sunnah of the Prophet (SAW).

• A month to increase charitable giving by caring for orphans and donating to the poor.

More than 1 billion Muslims commemorate Rabi al Awwal by sending prayers of peace and blessing on Muhammad (SAW). His perfect example, known through his character, habits, and deeds are preserved for all to learn from and follow: his love of the poor, his immense generosity to any in need, his support of the weak and downtrodden, and his protection and defense of the oppressed.

At Human Appeal, we believe there’s no better example than Prophet Muhammad (SAW), himself an orphan. His life and legacy inspire the values that drive our work each and every day.

“There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.” [Source - AlAhzab:21].

Living a life of humble service and compassionate leadership, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) left us with an enduring example of constant charity. He remains a guide for us all, at a time when 168 million people worldwide need humanitarian assistance.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “The Compassionate One has mercy on those who are merciful. If you show mercy to those who are on the earth, He Who is in the heaven will show mercy to you.”

Here are just some of the enormous rewards for giving charity:

  1. Whatever we give, Allah increases it, and we earn a noble reward.
  2. The angels pray for the one who gives.
  3. Our wealth increases and is protected.
  4. We wipe away our sins.
  5. The mercy of Allah descends.

Allah says, “Charity is for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the funds; and for those whose hearts have been reconciled (to the truth); for those in bondage; and those in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer. (Source - Quran 9:60).

Welcome the third month of the Islamic year, by giving zakat, sadaqah, and renewing your intention to give regularly, as our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) did.

Many are struggling to feed their families, and face a long and difficult winter ahead.

Your donations are a vital lifeline to people in need throughout the world. As hard as times may be for you, here is your beautiful chance to save yourself from calamity and uphold the Prophet’s (SAW) sunnah. Whatever you can give is amplified and returns to you in mercy and rewards from Allah (SWT).

Your donation will save and transform lives. Don’t let the Messenger’s (PBUH) month pass without honouring his legacy.

Follow the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet and help those most in need.
