ACTNews, BALIKPAPAN – As we enter the month of Shaban, Muslims around the world are preparing for the arrival of the blessed month of Ramadan. In Shaban, one of the acts of worship that we must intensify is charity.

This has been done by the Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Branch of East Kalimantan along with Nikmatnya Berbagi Movement, the Association of Indonesian Catering Service Companies, and Pangeran Dimsum who distributed 667 boxes of ready-to-eat meals to worshippers and students at the Hidayatullah Mosque, Balikpapan.

“Almsgiving is a good activity that should not be abandoned, especially because it is a good month. For this reason, we partnered with philanthropists to fill the month of Shaban with kindness,” said Budi Cahyanto from the ACT East Kalimantan Branch.

Ustaz Masykur Suyuti, Head of the Hidayatullah Institute for Education and Training in Balikpapan, welcomed the food distribution. According to him, the good spirit at the beginning of Shaban needs to be boosted because this will be a preparation to welcome Ramadan.

“Let's give alms and share to increase our sympathy as human beings. This activity is also our preparation before Ramadan. We pray that Allah will make us able to meet the blessed month,” said Ustaz Masykur.[]
