Hawzah News Agency - (London - UK) - Ramadan instructs Muslims across the world to help each other.

The world’s faithful across the world have been facing difficult choices as the pandemic has led countries to suspend religious services in mosques, churches and other places of worship.

For Muslims, whose holiest sites in Mecca and Medina have been also closed due to the outbreak. The approaching Ramadan, the holy month of fasting, could be a time of relief for believers as it urges compassion and caring for one another.

“Ramadan brings a change of climate, where you essentially remember others,” said Cafer Karadas, professor of divinity at the Uludag University, referring to the fact that the spirit of Ramadan encourages Muslims to help the needy through donations and charity work.

“For Muslims, Ramadan is not just fasting and staying away from certain things. But it’s also about feeling for others, who have been hungry and homeless, through the experience of fasting,” Karadas told TRT World.

Karadas thinks that Ramadan could be more crucial than ever in the time of the coronavirus outbreak, mitigating the painful impacts of the pandemic with its powerful spirit.

“Ramadan creates a perfect atmosphere in which people with essential revenues move to support others in order to cover their needs,” the professor said.

Across the world, under strict lockdown measures, many households have been suffering from a loss of income as unemployment skyrockets across the globe, from the US and European countries to the African continent and Asia.
