All over the world regardless of the ongoing season or the weather conditions, our desires, our wants and needs pay no heed. Rising with passing time, quenching the craves becomes a task. Feasible at a click of the button for some, while, regulating for the vital supply itself gets crippling for some.
The ratio of the crippling is way more than the haves.
Instances of both classes are spotted in our vicinity. At times, the contrast is distinct, but, many times to differentiate the indigent is confusing.
Shielded amour-propre refrains the impoverished from imploring, while expectations soaring their speculation of acquiring aid.
While the secret desire of the deprived remains cloaked, the glare of the leisure blocks the effluent from spotting the needful.
On the contrary, the benevolent irrespective of their financial holding selflessly reach out to the needy with available means, winning the ‘philanthropist’ title.
Helping comes with the pleasure of its own, the realization of the wonders every good deed can do.
Various channels of approaching the unfortunate are accessible. Charitable organizations or charitable events, they all aim to provide for the needy and deal with poverty one man at a time.
However, we don’t need to bank on such events or organizations entirely for helping the deprived.
Apart from dropping a dime in the charity box at the mall, or spending on a charity coupon, ways like feeding the poor, giving old clothes, distributing blankets or other essentials, setting up a water cooler in the neighborhood add to the list of admired charitable ways.
At times, the deserving may be contiguous to us in relation or distance. Mindfulness to their needs is what it requires to make the first step forward to provide support.
Upon giving alms, the giver is not helping the needy, but, instead is helping himself to become a better person, to be more empathetic, and helps himself to be more generous while expecting null in return. However, the sanctification of giving charity and the elation of easing the misery of a soul is indescribable. Yet, some boastful individuals brag about their blessed cause and let the value of the deed go in vain.
Negligent of the scar left on the hearts of the receiver by their hurtful act.
The mortified receiver strained by the circumspect acceptance of funds, already burdened by the affliction and compromising their dignity, generally, expect the giver to be attentive of their emotions.
All form of charity is a component of many religions and culture. Hence, being taught and inculcated in the young minds from an early age, building a sense of service to humanity.
Similarly, in Islam, charity throughout the year is instigated while in the holy month of Ramadan, charity by the name of Zakat has been made obligatory. Zakat, the third out of five pillars of Islam, is a term used for the 2.5% of the wealth, investment or savings to be paid to the poor and needy. (to know more about the Zakat and its terms and rulings, click here). Economists have confirmed the fact that if each believer makes the due payment of zakat and does not withhold it, poverty will surely be eradicated from the face of the Earth. Sadly, that is not the case yet.
There are various types of people in need depending on their situation, hence, broadening our opportunities for charity.
Generosity could be in the form of giving wealth, clothing, essentials, groceries and many other desired objects which eases the gainers’ situation to some extent.
However, it does not remain restricted to the same. If you possess knowledge of any kind, sharing it is charity. Helping any seeker in any manner without expecting any returns while not boasting is also a form of charity. To smile at someone is charity. Clearing the pathway of any obstacle to ease the passage for others is charity. Charity is also when you help a blind man cross the road. Showing directions to the lost is as well a form of charity. Helping out animals is also charity. planting trees as well is charity and the list goes on.
So, for reaching out and helping, you need not be rich or have a huge bank balance. Without these also you can be charitable and earn the rewards and be blessed.
Abu Dharr narrated that the Messenger of Allah said :
“Your smiling in the face of your brother is a charity, commanding good and forbidding evil is a charity, your giving directions to a man lost in the land is a charity for you. Your seeing for a man with bad sight is a charity for you, your removal of a rock, a thorn or a bone from the road is a charity for you. Your pouring what remains from your bucket into the bucket of your brother is a charity for you.” Reference: Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1956, In-book reference: Book 27, Hadith 62, English translation: Vol. 4, Book 1, Hadith 1956
No good deed is small. A deed which may be minuscule for us might make an enormous difference in the life of the beneficiary. So, never belittle any act of help and seize every opportunity which comes your way, doing your part in making a life lead to a better future.

In a bowl add all the chopped fruits, mix well while making sure you do not smash the fruits in the process. (you wouldn’t want to end up making a fruits puree out of all the vigorous mixing :p)
Once the fruits are mixed well, add the half cup of milk along with the cream or condensed milk. Dry fruits can also be added to the dish as per your preference.
Your fruit salad is ready.
Serve the fruit salad in the serving bowls or dishes, then top it off with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream, drizzle 1 tspn of Rooh Afzah syrup and on top of it all drop the pomegranate arils (seeds) and dry fruits. This makes the fruit salad look tempting, colorful and irresistible.
In your fruit salad, you can add any fruits, but, you can avoid watermelon, as it will make the fruit salad very watery and loose its authentic taste. Also, avoid guava as its seeds can be an impediment in relishing the dish.
Adding milk to the fruit salad keeps the apples and the bananas from turning black.
You can add condense milk or sweet cream depending how much more flavor you prefer to add.
Ice cream need not necessarily be vanilla, it can be any ice cream of your choice, but, it goes best with vanilla ice cream.
Fruits salad is best enjoy when had immediately, it can however refrigerated for a day or two.
