Islamic Giving

Support Baitulmaal’s development fund so we can provide effectively educationa nd economic empowerment to impoverished communities 

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said “the believers are like one body in their mutual love and affection: if one limb is injured, the rest responds with sleeplessness and fever.”

Throughout the world, our neighbors – our limbs – are suffering. Malnutrition is leading to life-threatening hunger. Lack of clean water is causing widespread, preventable illness. The need for healthcare is deep and desperate. Access to sustaining education is scarce.

Your donations are the body’s response of sleeplessness and fever. Your contributions bring healing, aid and restoration to your brothers and sisters in need. Immediate responses to catastrophic disasters prevent deaths, critical humanitarian aid sustains lives, and education and economic development programs help those living in poverty begin to thrive.

Your gifts do not just impact the individual – they ripple through families, neighborhoods and communities for years to come. “Those who spend their wealth in Allah’s cause are like grains of corn which produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains.” (Quran 2:261)

Donations to Baitulmaal fulfill several branches of Islamic charity.

Zakat (charity) is one of the five pillars of Islam. The Quran directs that the poor, those in bondage and those in need are to be the focus of our giving. Your financial contributions to Baitulmaal directly serves someone living in these crippling conditions.

Additionally, consider giving your Sadaqah, voluntary offerings, to develop education projects or provide emergency aid. You can also provide the gift of Udhiyah, the sacrifice of quality meat prepared following Islamic guidelines and halal standards, to a family in need during Eid.

Baitulmaal’s generous donors continue to provide life-enriching assistance to those in need, including:

Giving to those in need helps to align your heart, finances and actions with Allah. By caring for your neighbor, you seek Allah’s mercy and forgiveness.

Fulfill your religious obligation with a generous gift today.
