7 Ramadhan, 1439
Fasting month brings with it a number of opportunities to part with money. It's the time of year when one's Zakat needs to be paid, but there are no shortage of requests for donations from various worthy organisations. As with so many other counter-intuitive features of the month, it's odd how good it feels to be giving away some of the green stuff. I don't think I'm a charitable person by nature; so often I need to be prompted to do the right thing. So having a time of year when doing this particular right thing is part and parcel of the experience is a blessing in itself.
