Sadaqah

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

At-Tirmidhi

Sadaqah, meaning ‘charity’, is the concept of voluntary giving in Islam. Described in the Holy Qur’an as ‘a beautiful loan’, sadaqah encompasses any act of charitable giving done out of compassion, love, friendship or generosity. It can be given to anyone, and it has no limits or guidelines.

At IDRF both your Sadaqah and your Zakat allow us to support some of the world’s most vulnerable people gained access to food, shelter, water, education, economic development opportunities and the ability to live with dignity and to become self-reliant.

Last year alone, with your support, IDRF supported over 600,000 people gain access to the most basic of needs such as drinking water in schools in Gaza, hand pumps for villages in the desert regions of Pakistan and even access to Food aid for those living in Syria and in East Africa.

The Prophet ﷺ said,
“Whoever provides relief to a person in this world, Allah will provide relief to them on the day of judgement.”
