Ramadan-i Sharif, Sultan of the Eleven Months
Allah (s.w.t.) has chosen some days as more virtuous than others. Worships, prayers and alms given on these days are considered more acceptable and more virtuous like the worship held on Friday. Likewise, Allah (s.w.t.) chose some months more virtuous than others. The most virtuous month is Ramadan, in which worship, good deeds and prayers are valued, accepted and rewarded by Allah (s.w.t.) more than usual.
The month of Ramadan is a blessed month when mercy flows upon us, the gates of Heaven are opened wide, the gates of Hell are closed, the devil is chained and repentance is accepted.
The month of Ramadan is a month in which many material and spiritual blessings are experienced together and spiritual bliss takes precedence. Ramadan, the month of mercy, blessings and forgiveness, is the month when social solidarity among believers is at the highest, with its religious importance. Ramadan is also one of the blessed times when one can participate in financial charity activities such as zakat, fitrah, infaq.
In a hadith, our Prophet (s.a.w.) said in the month of Ramadan: "It is the month of sharing with others, and a month in which the believer’s provision is increased. If someone gives one who has been fasting something with which to break his fast it will provide forgiveness of his sins and save him from hell, and he will have a reward equal to the fasting believer's without his reward being diminished in any respect.”
Some of the Sahaba-i Kiram said, "O Messenger of Allah, we are not in a position to find something to give to the fasting person." Thereupon, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said: "Allah gives this reward to those who help them to break their fast even with a single date, a drink of water, a sip of milk."(Münziri, Et-tergib vet Tezhib, 115/2)
As the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) shows us in the hadith, Ramadan is the month of solidarity and remembering our brothers. The Muslims who are abstaining from eating and drinking due to fasting this month, realize and appreciate the opportunities and blessings that surround them, they also remember their brothers and sisters in need who do not have these blessings and empathize. Therefore, in Ramadan, Muslims are more eager and willing to help each other and build solidarity.
In fact, our Prophet (s.a.w.) said in another hadith, "He is not one of us, who sleeps when his neighbor is hungry."(Hakim, Müstedrek, no:7307) and he stated that these aids we need to do are actually an order of our religion.

The slogan "We have come to win hearts", identifies people in need wherever they may be in the world and delivers help to them to the best of our ability.

(Tirmidhi, İlm, 14), Beşir Association continues to help people in Turkey and abroad with donations from our esteemed donors and is continuously working to help people who are looking for a bite to eat, who want a sip of clean water, and who are trembling from the cold and tries to be a cure for their troubles.
