Throughout the year and most particularly during the month of Ramadan, IDRF receives generous contributions designated as Zakat. Zakat is 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 guidelines set out in the Qur’an. Some of the world’s most vulnerable people are in need of basic support so that they can live with dignity, zakat helps them. Zakat helps save lives and rebuild communities.

100% Zakat Policy

At IDRF, there is a 0% admin fee on Zakat, Fitrah, Fidya/Kaffara and Qurbani.  Donors can be confident that the full amount of their donations are being sent to the needy.
