Zakat

“Establish prayer (salah), and offer alms (zakat). Whatever good you send forth for yourselves, you will surely find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah is All-Seeing of what you do.

At-Tirmidhi

Throughout the year and most particularly during the month of Ramadan, IDRF receives generous contributions designated as Zakat. Zakat principally serves as the welfare contribution for vulnerable people in need. It is obligatory upon the Muslim community not just to collect Zakat but to distribute it according to the pillars of the Holy Qur’an.

At IDRF, we believe that Zakat is a vehicle to helping us save lives and rebuild communities. Some of the world’s most vulnerable people are in need of basic support, so that they can live with dignity.

How do we use Zakat contributions?

IDRF is committed to utilizing Zakat contributions with efficiency, transparency, and accountability, while ensuring compliance with commandments. Funds are used throughout the year on projects which serve families in urgent need.
