The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said, “Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward [At-Tirmidhi, authenticated by Al-Albani.]

Our annual Ramadan Food Basket drive is back, alhamdulillah! With an increasing population of Muslim refugees settling in Houston, as well as other Muslims who are struggling to provide a consistent supply of food for their families, it is imperative that we do what we can to share the Ramadan spirit with our fellow brothers and sisters in Islam.

Please consider sponsoring food baskets to be given to needy families so that they don't have to worry about how they will feed their families and in turn, spend more time getting closer to Allah (SWT) during the blessed month of Ramadan.

These food baskets are packed with essential food items and you are more than welcome to stop by the food pantry to see what exactly goes in.

Last year, we distributed around 300 food baskets and this year, we would like go well past 300 as the number of families exhibiting need has increased.

Here are the general sponsor details:
1 Food Box - $50
2 Food Boxes for a family - $100
6 Food Boxes - $300
10 Food Boxes - $500
