Give Charity Apart From Zakat

Being a born Muslim and belonging to a relatively religious family, I now realize that the things that we took for granted were not the same for other families. For Eid festivals, my father always used to get me and my brother Islamic gifts such as Islamic posters, jewellery and stickers with Quranic Ayah, whereas for birthdays, the gifts included interesting and informative Islamic books. These things provided us with loads of information about our religion in a fun and entertaining way, and we looked forward to these occasions to receive great Islamic gifts that would further enlighten us about Islam.

Now that I am older and have a son of my own, I want to impart the importance of Islamic gifts to him as well, so I have been following my parent’s tradition and have been giving him small Islamic items for all the important occasions. He is still very young so I try to get him things that are interesting and appeal to the young ones as well.
