“I do it simply out of love. I love giving and sharing with other people,” she told the Khaleej Times. “I keep some part of my money throughout the year so that when Ramadan comes along, I would have enough savings to fund the meals,” she said. Shareefah works as a bus supervisor in addition to being an Iftar cook. And she is raising the daughters of her late son, who was killed in a car accident four years ago.
“I’m also doing this charity on behalf of my late son,” she said. “I’m happy that I get to do this with my family. This is also a way to limit the children’s use of gadgets and their TV time. Instead, they get to embrace and practise the virtues of the holy month,” Al Hosani said.
