The season for acts of charity is incumbent upon Muslims all year round, but during Ramadan and in the last 10 days of the holy month charitable giving is especially important. Laylatul Qadr occurs during one of the last ten night and any good deed, worship practice, or act of charity is rewarded times 83 years.

There are many worthwhile charitable causes in Malaysia that could really use your support. Especially after two years of global crisis, charities have been struggling to raise the donations they need and serve the growing number of beneficiaries. We hope you find the kindness in your heart to support these charities. The needs are so great, and every little bit helps.
