It’s always a good time to give, but the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal , when our Beloved
Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was born, makes our giving especially
blessed. His mission brought the Divine light and learning to us. Our job is to
preserve the sacred source and contribute positively to our surroundings and spread
the message of peace, mercy and compassion which is at the core of Prophetic (ﷺ)

Clothing the poor is a sunnah of our Beloved Prophet (peace be upon him).
Hadrat Bilal (Radiyallahu Anhu) was asked, “How did the Messenger of God spend
He said, “Whenever he had anything, I was the one to whom it was entrusted
–from the time he was raised up by God until he departed this world-. He was such
that, if an individual came to him, submissively, and he saw that he was lacking
clothing, he would give me the command, and I would borrow money with which to purchase
a cloak and clothe him in it, and feed him…” ▶(Abu Dawud, Sunan (The Book of Tribute,
Ruling, Spoils (Kitab Al-Kharaj Wa Al-Imara Wa Al-Fai’), chapter on ‘The Ruler accepts
the gifts of Polytheists’), vol. 3, p. 498, Hadith #3050.)
