“I am asking us to think of those who have nothing. Don’t have a Ramadan where you eat, but you’re not checking to see who is eating—just where you live; next door, around the corner.

This Ramadan will be the best Ramadan if The Fast makes us concerned about others who have nothing to eat and no water to drink. I am asking us, as Muslims, to rise to the command of God. I am asking The Muslim Ummah during this Ramadan:

Don’t partake of the joy of it without thinking about those of the Muslim community who have nothing to eat, no water to drink, no hospital to go to, living in tents … .”

—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, March 11, 2024, The Ummah Reflects podcast

During the Islamic Holy Month of Ramadan, the brothers and sisters of the Nation of Islam (N.O.I.) have prepared homemade meals and distributed them to people in their respective communities. F.O.I. (Fruit of Islam) and M.G.T and G.C.C. (Muslim Girls Training and General Civilization Class) worked cheerfully in mosques and study groups around the country in carrying out the divine instructions of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Thousands of meals have been given to men, women, and children in the spirit of the love and caring exemplified by the Minister.
