The virtues of feeding the fasting person

Question: Some people hold banquets and give invitations in Ramadhaan making it a month of occasions. Others slaughter, and distribute the meat, in charity and make other types of effort with food. What is the ruling regarding this?

Response: Yes, offering food in Ramadhaan has extra virtue due to the nobility of the time and the need that the fasting people have for food. The Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said: ((Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of his reward (i.e. the one fasting))), so preparing food in this month for the needy is from the best of actions because (the reward for giving) charity in the month of Ramadhaan is multiplied more than in the other months.
