Giving Iftar to a Fasting man

Giving Iftar to a fasting man is an act of great merit. Zaib ibn Khalik Jehmi has related that our Prophet  upon whom be peace  has sad, “He who gives iftar to another fasting person shall earn reward equivalent to a fasting man without detracting from the reward of the latter.” (Nisai and Tirmidhi)

Salrnan Farsi has related that our etemally blessed Prophet has said that, "If one breaks the fast of another, this act shall be a source of pardon of his sins and release of his neck from hellfire, and he shall earn the merit of the fast of the fasting man, but the reward of the fasting man shall not be reduced". The companion, upon hearing this submitted: "Some of us do not have enough to break the fast of another". Thereupon our Prophet said "Allah shall give this reward even to those who give a date or water or a mouthful of milk to a fasting man." (Sahih ibn Hazimah)
