Ramadan is often called the month of giving. Those living in Saudi can testify to it as it is this charitable “giving” that happens all around us throughout the month. Be it in the form of free iftars offered month-round across almost all mosques in the country or be it the large amounts of donations to charity that is given during the month. Ramadan truly is special.

Recently, a video of a small girl distributing dates around the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah has gone viral.
And, it kind of embodies the spirit of the month.

It’s not only the people the Saudi government too, engages in charitable giving in several countries across the globe during the Holy Month.
Saudi Arabia has been commended for plans to provide assistance to needy Afghans during Ramadan. Goods worth $1 million, including rice, tea, dates and flour, will be distributed to 20,000 households in five key Afghan cities in the coming weeks https://t.co/Pqvbu1Np0l pic.twitter.com/FgYMQge9Tc
