During the month of Ramadan, the prophet would be so much more generous than the usual days. This also goes to say that, charity isn’t only for the month of Ramadan, but throughout the year. However, in Ramadan, our rewards are multiplied endlessly which is all the more reason for us to open our hearts to the less fortunate people in the world, and for us to be more thankful to Allah for all the blessings we have been bestowed with.
Narrated Ibn `Abbas:
The Prophet (ﷺ) was the most generous of all the people, and he used to become more generous in Ramadan when Gabriel met him. Gabriel used to meet him every night during Ramadan to revise the Qur'an with him. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) then used to be more generous than the fast wind. Sahih al-Bukhari 3554
This year, I looked up at the date project and thought that it would be the most fun way to give money to charity as well as give the gift of dates to loved ones.

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person’. (Tirmidhi)
Just imagine receiving the same amounts of rewards as a fasting person, by simply feeding someone in Ramadan. So, I thought that this is such an amazing way to gain so much rewards by gifting dates to my family and friends to break their fast with during Ramadan.
6. Revive a Sunnah!
“Verily, whoever revives a tradition (sunnah) from among my traditions which has died after me, then he will have a reward similar to whoever acts upon it without taking anything away from their rewards.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
I thought I would leave this till last as it is the simplest way to earn many rewards in Ramadan. There are so many simple acts of the prophet which we can follow and act upon the hadith mentioned up.
Here are a few sunnah acts which we can follow:
1. Make dua for others.
2. Eat suhoor.
3. Use miswak
4. Pray our sunnah prayers
5. Do your adhkar
