- Eating together with other people or your fellow Muslim brothers is highly rewarding
- There is also nothing wrong if a fasting Muslim eats his Sahuur and Iftaar separately from Day one to the last day of Ramadan
Eating with other Muslims during Iftaar brings a special feeling to the heart in terms of increasing compassion for one another as well as happiness.
Almighty Allaah in Suuratul Nuur, Aya 61 (that is chapter 24 verse 61) of the Glorious Qur’an mentioned the people a Muslim can eat together with as well as eating together with others.
Islam enjoins Muslims to do whatever will bring tranquility to their hearts as long as it is Halaal, that it is permissible according to Islamic laws.
Some Muslims are financially buoyant, while others struggle to get what they will eat during Sahuur and Iftaar for the whole 29 or 30 days of fasting. Therefore, if you fall in the first category of Muslims, give food, drinks and even money to the poor Muslims in order to ease their Ramadan fasting.
More so, you can invite the non-wealthy fasting Muslims to eat Sahuur and Iftaar or only Iftaar with you based on your financial capacity. Every fasting Muslim should endeavour to extend the hands of generosity to other Muslims so that he or she will maximise the once in a year rewards of the holy month of Ramadan.
