Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

What is Zakat al-Fitr?

Zakat al-Fitr is a form of charity given by Muslims at the end of Ramadan, the holy month of fasting. It is an obligation for every Muslim, young and old, to be paid before the Eid al-Fitr prayers. This practice was established by the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), as a means to purify those who fast from any indecent act or speech and to help the poor and needy.

The Significance of Zakat al-Fitr (Fitrana)

Purification and Reflection

It serves as a purification for those who fast from any minor errors or indecencies they may have committed during Ramadan.

Support for the Needy

It provides an opportunity to extend support to those in need, ensuring that everyone has the means to celebrate the joyous occasion of Eid.

What is the amount for Fitrana?

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) prescribed the amount for the fitrana to be one saa’ of dates or one saa’ of barley. Fitrana for Ramadan 2024 is £5 per person.

When should you pay Fitrana (Zakat al-Fitr)?

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) commanded that Fitrana should be given before the people went out to the (Eid) prayer.

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

At the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), we used to give one saa’ of food, or one saa’ of dates, or one saa’ of barley, or one saa’ of raisins.

Distribute Your Fitrana With Islamic Welfare Trust

As Islamic Welfare Trust acts on your behalf. With the money you will donate for Fitrana (Zakat al-Fitr), we will purchase foodstuff with it. This will then be distributed among the poor and needy Muslims in Pakistan and Kashmir. We always advise our donors to pay their Fitrana 3-5 days before Eid so we can make the arrangements. However, to provide a quicker service for our donors we always buy extra foodstuff so if last-minute donations come we can still distribute food on their behalf. Finally, we ask Allah to accept our salahs, fasting, qiyam, and recitation of the Quran.

What is the difference between Zakat al-Fitr and Zakat al-Mal?

Fitrana (Zakat al-Fitr) and Zakat al-Mal are both forms of obligatory charity in Islam, but they serve different purposes and have different rules. Fitrana is a small, fixed amount given at the end of Ramadan to purify those who fast and to help the poor celebrate Eid. Zakat al-Mal, on the other hand, is an annual payment based on the total wealth one possesses and is calculated as 2.5% of one’s wealth exceeding the nisab (minimum amount of wealth one must have before they are liable to pay Zakat).

Disaster can Strike Anywhere, Anytime

Unfortunately, recent human history has emphatically confirmed this reality. Since the turn of the century, we have seen disaster after disaster unfold, some natural but predominantly manmade. As a Muslim Humanitarian Charity, it’s crucial for us to have emergency funds readily available to respond swiftly to these disasters.

Whether it’s the Gaza Emergency Appeal, Yemen Emergency Appeal, Syrian Refugee Crisis, Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal, Pakistan Floods Appeal, Bangladesh Floods Appeal, Rohingya Crisis Appeal, or Africa Drought Appeal, our ability to continue helping those affected by these conflicts, wars, and crises relies on your ongoing support. We urge you to donate your Sadaqah and Zakat to these appeals, aiding in the protection of lives throughout the year and in times of crisis.

However, if you are looking to build a Masjid as Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones, or if you wish to build a water pump, donate a food pack, sponsor a sewing machine, or need to give Kaffarah for Breaking an Oath, consider our appeals. Donate to the Ramadan Food Appeal, the Ramadan Zakat Appeal, or simply donate your Zakat to assist the poor and needy around the world. Insha’Allah, donate with confidence for the sake of Allah.

Islamic Charity – Under the Supervision of Islamic Scholars

Islamic Welfare Trust strictly adheres to a 100% donation policy for Emergency Appeals and Zakat, ensuring complete transparency with details available on the Charity Commission website. We promise to allocate £9 out of every £10 of general donations directly to those in need, honouring your trust and our commitment to the Ummah. All our activities and projects receive full approval from scholars who are part of our board of trustees.
