“Those who put aside from their wealth a known right for anyone in need or deprived…they are honoured in Gardens of Bliss.” — Quran 70:24-35

Rubabah has only known poverty and war her entire life.

She cannot afford to go to school or eat more than once a day.

Without the proper support, she is left alone and struggling to survive.

Your Zakat has the power to change this.

“Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in their reward.” – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Through your Zakat, Sadaqah and Ramadan donations, we distribute food packets to the poorest of the poor in this blessed month, reaching over 30 countries. Each food packet contains 30 pounds of food and feeds a family of 5 – 7 people.

The packets include staples like rice, wheat, lentils, oil, sugar, canned fish, meat and dates. Food items are procured locally within each country whenever possible to ensure that they’re appropriate for the recipients and beneficial to the economy.

What if I am not able to fast in Ramadan?

In some circumstances, a Muslim is not able to fulfill his or her religious obligation to fast during the month of Ramadan, or may want to recompense for a broken oath. Fidya and Kaffara are two solutions offered that can help a Muslim expiate for not fasting or breaking other obligations.

The paying of fidya or kaffara also benefits members of the community who live in impoverished conditions.

Islamic Relief ensures Fidya and Kaffara donations go directly to feeding a needy family. Make your payments easily online today.
