It’s that time of the year again

Ramadan Kareem, friends: The holy month is almost upon us. This year’s festivities mark a partial return to “normal” after two years of celebrations against the backdrop of the pandemic. Shops, restaurants and cafes will be allowed to stay open until 2 am, mawa’id rahman (charity table) gatherings are back, and event halls at major mosques will reopen.

That said, we’re facing new challenges this Ramadan — including a major squeeze on prices thanks to global inflationary pressures, and uncertainty clouding supply chains for some essential commodities (see: wheat) thanks to Russia’s war in Ukraine.

From tips on how to celebrate without breaking the bank, to the best way to give your time and energy to those in need, this month’s issue of Your Wealth is here to help you plan a month filled with reflection, joy, and giving, even (or perhaps especially) in a time of crisis.
