Day 23: Give Gifts
With Eid coming up soon, let’s talk about gifts. Not the last minute rush to the shopping centre, to get one (or more) fancy gifts for friends or family members. Of course, these things are all good. But gift-giving in the Sunnah is so much more than material things. We know that the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, recommended gift-giving as a way to increase love between people.
This year, try looking a little further. Our Ramadan and Eids are a golden opportunity to share the message of Islam with others. On your Eid list, add the crossing guard, the receptionist, and your coworkers. Add family members or friends you haven’t seen in a long time. Your gift doesn’t have to be pricey or elaborate. It can be as simple as a small trinket. But give a gift to someone, and let them see the truest portrayal of Islam.
