Fulfilling the dictates of Christianity and Islam during the Holy Month

In both Christian and Muslim religions, the Holy Month is known as Lent and Ramadan. During this period, persons practicing the faith engage in prayer and fasting. Christians use this period to reflect on Jesus’s teaching, including his 40 days of fasting. They also prepare themselves for the resurrection celebration, which is the foundation of the Christian faith. This celebration is otherwise known as Easter, and it is a time of celebrating with family and loved ones that Jesus conquered death. Sierra Leoneans worldwide that celebrate Easter will traditionally prepare a big meal and, in some cases, hold a small-scale family dinner. Unfortunately, while some celebrate with delicious meals, some families and friends struggle to provide a portion of healthy, delicious food.
Because of this reason, Sierra Leoneans living abroad tend to increase their money transfer to family and friends back home during this period. This increase in money transfer results in increased revenue for online western companies that provide such services. This money remittance to Sierra Leone is for family and friends to purchase food items and have a grand easter celebration. An alternative to money transfer is 247bigmarket.com.
Our online application is Sierra Leone’s #1 marketplace. You can shop from anywhere globally, and family, relatives, and friends in Sierra Leone can opt to pick up or have their groceries delivered to them, depending on the vendor.
On the other hand, Muslims also observe the holy month of Ramadan by fasting. Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. It is also a month of prayer, fasting, and giving. The final ten nights of Ramadan is known as “Laylat al-Quadr” ( Night of Power). The end of Ramadan is celebrated as Eid al-Fitr. During the entire month of Ramadan, Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad who observe the holy month look forward to providing food as charity to their relatives, friends, and community at large. Sierra Leoneans living abroad transmit vast sums of money to support their charity effort during the Ramadan season. This effort is very fulfilling spiritually and emotionally, especially in a country where many people still live below $1.00 a day.
The downside to this is that through Sierra Leoneans ‘ generosity, non-Sierra Leonean money transfer companies are making greater profits with little or no returns to Sierra Leone. It is time for Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad to support Sierra Leonean companies trying to make a difference by creating much-needed services for the community. The world is now a global village, and 247bigmarket.com makes it easy to connect economic activities between Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad.
