Helping the Poor During Ramaḍān

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

Helping the poor by feeding them during the month of Ramaḍān is from the practices of Islam; indeed, the Prophet said: “Whoever provides a fasting person something to break his fast with will have the like of his reward.”¹
