Ramadan Food Appeal
“He who eats to his fill while his neighbour goes hungry is not a believer.”
Gaza, Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan flood victims, Rohingya Muslims, Earthquake victims, and millions more around the world are facing a shortage of food to eat and clean water to drink. Through our appeals, we are aiming to eradicate poverty by helping one family at a time. We are not asking for big donations, all we are asking for is ‘small donations’ but continuous support, so we can invest in long-term solutions to help families come out of poverty.
Donate your Sadaqah & Zakat
Donate Generously, Donate Now
Zakat is an obligatory pillar of Islam. Every Muslim whose wealth has exceeded the Nisab amount must pay Zakat once 12 months of the lunar year have passed. According to numerous ayahs of the Quran and narrations of the Prophet, you must pay Zakat to purify your wealth.
Zakat is the right of the poor, the needy, the destitute, the debtors, the wayfarer, and the administrators of Zakat
Charity, known as “Sadaqah” in Arabic, is highly valued in Islam and is considered one of the most virtuous deeds that not only benefits the receiver but also the giver.
Change Lives with Your Sadaqah & Zakat
Giving sadaqah is an act of worship. Allah becomes pleased with the person who regularly gives Sadaqah from his wealth.
“O you who believe! Spend of that with which We have provided for you before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zaalimoon (wrongdoers)”
In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Most Merciful
Successful indeed are the believers,
Who are humble in their prayers,
And who keep aloof from what is vain,
And who are givers of poo-rate (Zakat)
And who guard their private parts,
Except before their mates or those whom their right hands possess, for they surely are not blameable,
But whoever seeks to go beyond that, these are they that exceed the limits;
And those who are keepers of their trusts and their covenant,
And those keep a guard on their prayers;
These are they who are the heirs,
Who shall inherit the Paradise; they shall abide therein.
Surah al-Mumenoon (23: 1-11)
These are the principles upon which the Islamic Welfare Trust was set up. Our goal behind all our charity and social work is to seek the ultimate reward of Jannatul Firdous through our good deeds such as Salat, Zakat, Hajj and feeding the poor and needy.
Help the helpless and make this world free of poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, and homelessness.
