The term ‘Ramadan’ and the term ‘generous’comes in together.
Any act of kindness done during the month of Ramadan attracts a lot of reward.
The prophet, Muhammad. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him was very generous especially in the month of Ramadan. No person could ever equate to him in the matter of being generousity.
The Prophet (ﷺ) was the most generous of all the people, and he used to become more generous in Ramadan when Gabriel met him. Gabriel used to meet him every night during Ramadan to revise the Qur’an with him. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) then used to be more generous than the fast wind.
Ramadan kareem” or “A generous Ramadan” is one way Egyptians greet each other
Generosity becomes more rewarding when you as the giver keep your good deed as a secret.
What you do without expecting a reward is truly a reflection of your humility and faith in God as a human being.
Generosity in Islam is very rewarding. People who give generosity expecting reward of Allah shall be rewarded on the day of reckoning.

Muslims whose savings meet or exceed certain values are obliged to give 2.5% of their annual savings to the poor and needy and for the welfare of the Muslim community. This is a way Islam has honored the act of giving.
As we prepare for Ramadan may Allah give us the strength to do more generous things throughout it’s presence.
