Sadaqah comes from the root word sidq which means sincerity (ikhlaas). Sadaqah is a sign of sincerity of faith, this is why we should always strive to give away something from our earnings to help the poor and needy Muslims.

Giving sadaqah is an act of worship. Allah becomes pleased with the person who regularly gives Sadaqah from his wealth.

Allah says:

“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)”

[al-Baqarah 2:254]

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.

Giving Sadaqah is an Act of Worship

Sadaqah means worshipping Allah by giving money without that being made obligatory in shari’ah. The word sadaqah is sometimes used to refer to obligatory zakat.

Give Sadaqah: Gain Reward and Protect Yourself from Calamities

Allah says,

“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”

(Quran 2:261)

Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity”


Virtues of Giving Sadaqah (Charity) from the Quran and the Sunnah

“Whatever you spend in good, it will be repaid to you in full, and you will not be wronged”

(Quran 2:272)

“Charity does not decrease wealth”


“The most beloved of deeds to Allah are the most continuous, even if they are small”

(Bukhari & Muslim)

This ayah and ahadith show us that we should not only give Sadaqah but we should give sadaqah regularly and to make a quick difference in the lives of needy Muslims we should donate our Sadaqah online.

How to Make Sadaqah Part of Your Daily Life?

  1. Identify opportunities to help: Whether it’s assisting a neighbour or donating to a charity.
  2. Make Sadaqah a regular practice: Even small, consistent acts of kindness are valuable.
  3. Involve family and community: Encourage others to participate in acts of Sadaqah.

Maximise the Impact of Your Sadaqah

Sadaqah Jariyah, or ongoing charity, is a form of Sadaqah that continues to benefit others even after the giver’s lifetime. Investing in sustainable projects like wells or schools can create a lasting legacy of benefit.

Sadaqah is not just about Donating Money

Sadaqah can take many forms – not just monetary. Acts like smiling, offering a kind word, or volunteering time are all forms of Sadaqah.

This aligns with the Hadith,

“Every act of goodness is charity” (Sahih Muslim).


“The best of people are those that bring the most benefit to the rest of mankind.”


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, Donate your Sadaqah Online, or simply donate your Zakat to assist the poor and needy around the world. Insha’Allah, donate with confidence for the sake of Allah.
