Ramadaniyat 4: The Most Beautiful Human Gesture in Ramadan | A Delicious Pumpkin Cake Recipe

Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was the most generous of people and he was at his most generous in Ramadan when he would meet Jibril and he would review the Qur’an with him” (narrated by Al-Bukhari.)

Generosity is a beautiful trait of Arabs. Honoring the guest is a generosity of self, as generosity is one of the best deeds.

Many Arab families fall for the mistake of preparing a lot of food that exceeds the need of the family and guests in the month of Ramadan and often ends in the trash. The family should share it with relatives and friends or distribute it to those in need. The relief of the needy is one of the signs of virility, honor, and the essence of worship.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The food of one person is enough for two, and the food of two people is enough for four, and the food of four people is enough for eight” (narrated by Muslim.)
