Exchange gifts, as that will lead to increasing your love to one another.”
-Al-Bukhari

As the Holy month of Ramadan draws to a close, Eid celebrations can begin.

From a delicious feast to spending quality time with loved ones, the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr brings many rewards and is a time that many Muslims look forward to all year round – especially our children!

Of course, this is because another Eid tradition involves giving gifts to children. Whether it is toys, sweets, new clothes or money, the younger generation are typically given gifts and treats at Eid. Many struggle to decide on what Eid gifts are right for their kids, battling between traditional options and more contemporary choices. Regardless, there’s no doubt that a well-chosen present will be both memorable and appreciated by your loved ones.

Eid for Vulnerable Communities

As you and your loved ones celebrate Eid, it’s important to remember the less fortunate who are suffering and in need. In particular, it is essential that we keep in mind the most vulnerable people – children, orphans and widows. During Eid, these people and their families can find themselves struggling to celebrate and give any gifts at all, with many struggling just to survive.

This reminds us of a verse from a poem by Abu Tayeb Al-Mutanabbi asking if Eid will, “be the same [grief and sorrow], or will it be a sign of a new day?”

This captures how countless Muslims around the world will feel during Eid; yet, on this day, you can become their hope for a brighter future. You can make this Eid the beginning of a new start for those struggling across the globe, simply by making a prayer and giving a generous donation.

Eid Gifts for the World’s Vulnerable Children

By supporting our UK Islamic Mission appeal, you can give one of the most important Eid gifts for kids, widowed mothers and struggling families: the gift of happiness and hope in otherwise dire times. Just a small donation can help us provide gift packs for those in need, each filled with everyday essentials, clothes, shoes and toys for children to enjoy.

Enjoying ourselves and celebrating Eid does not make us forget about our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Indeed, it only amplifies our desire to offer as much help and support as we possibly can, for none of us truly believes until we love for our brother what we love for ourselves.

This Eid, open yourself up to greater reward and blessings when you selflessly give to those in need.

We humbly invite you to donate a gift for an orphan this Eid; an orphan who may never meet you, but who will always remember you as a kind and compassionate donor.
