One of SIDMA College’s annual Ramadhan activity is the distribution of Bubur Lambuk (spiced porridge) otherwise commonly known as the Ramadhan porridge to various selected mosques as well as other related institutions located in and around the district of Penampang and Kota Kinabalu as part of SIDMA’s Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) programme to assist the needy and deprived individuals to break their fast during the holy month of Ramadhan while building closer bonding with the stakeholders and community.

According to Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (Founder and Chairman, SIDMA College Sabah), the preparation of this year’s Bubur Lambuk is outsourced to a food provider in Penampang and SIDMA College will be responsible for its collection, packing and distribution. For each distribution, the college placed order for 1,000 packs of the said porridge to enable them to reach a larger group of recipients.

Madrasah Jamiatul Fathi collaborated with Al-Mughni Orphanage Management Association, SIDMA Islamic Student Club (GAMSIS), Student Representative Council (SRC) as well as SIDMA staff to pack and distribute the spiced porridge to various selected locations. They were divided into groups and took their turn to distribute the packed porridge.

The general public who are staying in and around the following locations are cordially invited to get their share of the porridge from the college beginning 4.30 pm or after the Asr prayer, based on the following date and location:

  1. 01 June 2017 – Putatan District Mosque

It was narrated that Zayd ibn Khalid al-Juhani said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever gives Iftar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest” as narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 807; Ibn Maajah, 1746. Classed as saheeh by Ibn Hibaan, 8/216 and by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 6415.

Sheikh al-Islam [Ibn Taymiyah] said: What is meant by giving him Iftar is giving him enough to satisfy him. Al-Ikhtiyaaraat, p. 194. Many used to give up their Iftar for others, such as ‘Abdallah ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), Dawood al-Taa’i, Malik ibn Dinar and Ahmad ibn Hanbal. Ibn ‘Umar used only to break his fast with orphans and the poor and needy.

There were among those who used to offer food to their brothers whilst fasting, and they would sit and serve them, such as al-Hasan and Ibn al-Mubarak. From the ‘ibadah of providing food for people stem many other acts of worship such as creating love and friendship towards those who are given the food, which is a means of entering Paradise, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “You will not enter Paradise until you truly believe, and you will not truly believe until you love one another.” Narrated by Muslim, 54. It also fosters the practice of sitting with righteous people and seeking reward by helping them to do acts of worship for which they gain strength by eating your food.
