Once again the honourable space of time has approached nigh and you
are called to prepare for it. Indeed it is the month of mercy, benevolence,
honour, love, happiness and extending the hand of kindness to the needy Muslims.
It is indeed the month of Ramadaan-al Mubarak. We wish you all a blessed month
Beloved Brethren, ZMYO has firmly established itself as
a bridge between the givers and the needy Communities thus striving towards the
creation of an excellent Muslim generation. Last year we managed (by the will
of Allah) to offer IFTAAR to more
than 70 Masaajid nationwide where
the locals broke their fast. This year, we wish to extend the service to almost
100 Mosques throughout the country,
Allah willing, Zimbabwe Muslim youth Organisation (ZMYO) in
collaboration with willing partners (individual and organisations / groups) intends
to hold the following activities during the holy month of Ramadaan 1436 A.H:-
Eid Soccer tournament
Iftaar distribution will be done in two ways to allow the Muslims to
break fast during the month of Ramadaan. These will be done with Food hamper
distribution for families and Iftaar packages for the Masaajid.
Iftaar hampers – These are hampers meant for the needy families, widows and orphans
during the month of Ramadaan. The hampers will assist them in breaking their
fast, Supper and Sahoor. We intend to reach to a total of 1 000 recipients /
Iftaar packages for the
Masaajid – These packages will be distributed to various Masaajid were people gather and eat together during the breaking of Fast. This will also help many people to perform their Salaatu-Attaraweeh at one place and in large numbers. It also help the poor to be able to fast during the month of Ramadan in case they do not get Iftaar Hampers from well wishers as they can break their fast at the mosque.
In order to raise the spiritual conduct of the Muslims within our
communities and to emphasize on brotherhood amongst the Muslims and reminding
the Muslims of their belonging to Islam, some seminars will be held in selected
Communities from Asr Salaah till the breaking of Fast. These seminars will be
held in the following proposed areas with an average attendance of 250 people

The tournament is aimed at bringing the youths together through sports. Eight
selected teams will participate. Awards are presented to the best four teams.

To mark an end to the holy blessed month of Ramadaan, Eid
celebrations will be held in some areas in order to bring the Muslims together.
This will accord the Muslims an opportunity to meet together thus instilling
the sense of unity and discuss issues of importance as a Single united Ummah.
The celebrations will be held in the central points in various provinces and
We hope you will

absolutely nothing to eat and this Ramadan program will be able to assist the
most needy Muslims in these hard times to fulfill their obligation towards the
The situation in
is very terrible as some people are going for days without food which might
make it difficult for others if not impossible for others to fulfill their
obligations towards Allah in this important month of Ramadan.
We therefore invite you to partner with us in funding the IFTAAR to assist the Underprivileged
and Needy Muslim communities this Ramadaan. “Remember a single date or water gives you a ticket of freeing a slave.”
