Zakat builds

lives hope ambition opportunities confidence

During the holy month of Ramadan, Sadaqah takes on even greater significance. Sadaqah is a voluntary act of charity. Donations during Ramadan are valued because they are believed to bring blessings and rewards from Allah SWT. Charity during this month is encouraged for all Muslims who are able to do so.
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 has no limits or guidelines.
At IDRF both your Sadaqah and your Zakat allow some of the world’s most vulnerable people to gain access to food, shelter, water, education, economic development opportunities and the ability to live with dignity and to become self-reliant.


Sadaqah can take many forms, and it is not limited to financial donations. It can be anything that helps others and brings them relief, from volunteering at a food bank to donating clothes to those in need.
Sadaqah Jariyah, or continuous charity, is also highly encouraged.
This refers to acts of charity that continue to benefit others even after the donor has passed away, such as building a mosque, water well or a school.
Poverty and food insecurity are a reality for many vulnerable communities around the world, true charity has the potential to be life-saving. Donating to charitable organizations during Ramadan can help provide much-needed support and relief to those who are struggling. Donations can go towards providing food, shelter, healthcare, education, and protection for those in need.

The Prophet ﷺ said,

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


Sadaqah is also an opportunity to show compassion and generosity towards others. It is a powerful way to connect with our faith and to fulfill our duty as Muslims. Charity is not just a pillar of Islam, but a pillar of humanity. It reminds us of our obligation to care for and protect those who are most vulnerable in our communities. 

The Prophet ﷺ said,

“”The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be their charity.”


This powerful statement highlights the eternal significance of donations. It is a way to invest in our hereafter while also making a positive impact on the lives of others in this world.
Truly, when we offer Sadaqah with pure intention, it becomes a sacred act that not only elevates our faith to greater heights, but also enriches our character, bringing us closer to the Divine and transforming us for the better. By giving, we are following in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad SAW, who was known for his generosity and compassion towards others. It reminds us of the importance of caring for and protecting those who are most vulnerable in our communities.

The Prophet ﷺ said,

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