Ramadan 2017

For Muslims, cancer isn’t the end of the world. It’s another trial through which to prepare for the life after. Many of our patients at Shaukat Khanum Hospital are fighting their disease with the knowledge that they may not win in the end. Their greatest desire is to bear their trial with strength and grace that will please Allah (swt). Today they are happy to see one more Ramadan. But what are we doing to help?

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: ‘The dearest of people to Allah (swt) is the one who does most benefit to people […] And to walk with a brother to meet his needs is dearer to me than observing i‘tikaaf in this mosque [the mosque of Madinah] for a month.’ (at-Tabaraani:12/453)

Showing compassion for the sick in their time of need is a fundamental aspect of Muslim character. But to do so also reminds us of the endless blessings we’ve been given. Blessings like living through one more Ramadan. Show your gratitude through what you give this month. Gain the prayers of the sick and the reward of Allah (swt) with you Zakat and Sadaqah.

This Ramadan, Believe in Miracles

At age 15, Muhammad Talha was diagnosed with cancer. The tumour was so close to his heart, doctors refused to operate and told him he had less than a month to live. Today, Talha is alive to give others hope with his miraculous story. You can read it here.

We can use your Zakat, Fitrana and Sadaqah in Ramadan to save the lives of many ‘hopeless case’ cancer patients, like Talha.
