A Ramadan of Relief

This Ramadan 2022, Islamic Relief is continuing its life-saving work around the world, making sure your donations get to those who need them most. We believe in a Ramadan without hunger, thirst, and, loneliness.

You can be the relief, for the countless suffering around the world.


˹The righteous˺ give food, out of love for Him, to the poor, the orphan and the captive, ˹saying˺ we feed you, for God’s pleasure only, we desire from you neither reward nor thanks.
– Quran 76:5-9

Every night nearly 1 billion people go to bed hungry. And every day, we see its crippling effects. For an orphaned child, the feelings of safety and family are shattered. And for many, loneliness and poverty are daily burdens.

 

Imagine a Ramadan without hunger, thirst, or loneliness

We don’t need to imagine.

Through the power of zakat, sadaqah, love, and community, we can sustain orphans, the widowed, refugees, disaster-struck communities, and all of those who call upon us to fulfill our obligation.

As Muslims, we have a divine obligation to not ignore the suffering of others.

So, let’s give more than ever this Ramadan.

A Ramadan of Relief

We are in over 30 countries, delivering food, water and emergency relief to those in desperate need. Together, we helped over 3.2 million people last year. Your Zakat and Sadaqah can save and transform lives.

This year, with a simple gift, we invite you to give a little of your Ramadan and be the relief.
