We are Scholars Verified

Alhamdulillah, the board of trustees at the Islamic Welfare Trust includes Shaykh Ibrahim Mirpuri, Senior Imam of Mohammadi Masjid in Birmingham. He is among the senior scholars in the UK and is known for his studies with many major scholars from Pakistan. Shaykh Idrees Madni, an Imam at a Glasgow Masjid, is also one of the senior scholars in the UK. He has studied under some of the major scholars in Pakistan and graduated from the Islamic University of Madeenah. Every charity project undertaken by the Trust, whether it’s the Gaza Emergency Appeal, Yemen Emergency Appeal, Earthquake Appeal, Floods Appeal, Sponsorship of Orphans and Widows, or the distribution of Zakat, is verified and authorized by these scholars along with other trustees. This ensures that your donations are spent in accordance with Islamic ethos.

Our 5 Guiding Principles

  • 1

    “Charity is for those in need, who, in Allah’s cause are restricted (from travel), and cannot move about in the land, seeking (For trade or work). The ignorant man thinks, because of their modesty, that they are free from want. Thou shalt know them by their (Unfailing) mark: They beg not importunately from all the sundry.”

    Surah Al-Baqarah (2:273)

  • 2

    “And they feed, for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive, (Saying), ‘We feed you for the sake of Allah alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.'”

    Surah Al-Insan (76:8-9)

  • 3

    “The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.”

    Surah Al-Baqarah (2:261)

  • 4

    “Alms are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to Truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.”

    Surah At-Tawbah (9:60)

  • 5

    “Have you seen the one who denies the Recompense? For that is the one who drives away the orphan and does not encourage the feeding of the poor.”

    Surah Al-Ma’un (107:1-3)
