The Season of Zakat
“Establish prayer and give zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves—you will find it with Allah. Surely Allah sees what you do.”
—The Holy Qur’an, 2:110
More than just a percentage of our income, zakat is a core pillar of our faith. And when you give through Islamic Relief, it has the potential to impact lives in big ways for years and years to come.
Give your zakat through IRUSA, and help provide emergency food, shelter for refugees, job training, medication and so much more to those who desperately need your aid.
Islamic Relief collects and distributes zakat to those who are most in need, in accordance with Islamic guidelines. According to the Holy Qur’an (9:60), there are eight categories of people who qualify to be recipients of zakat:
The collectors of zakat (Islamic Relief USA is an example)
Those whose hearts are to be won over
Those burdened with debt
In the cause of Allah (SWT)
Most scholars agree that the poor and needy are the most important categories of people to receive zakat. Given that, it is acceptable to give your entire zakat allotment to individuals who are in those groups. CALCULATE YOUR ZAKAT
Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Sadaqah Jariyah projects
When you give sadaqah jariyah, it will support a project of lasting benefit—something like:
Developing a clean water system
Building a school
Helping widows start businesses
Building or equipping a health clinic
These are projects that communities will enjoy and appreciate for years, even generations. Each project can turn a family’s life around.
“When a son of Adam dies, then his good deeds stop except for three: a Sadaqah Jariyah (continuous charity), a beneficial knowledge, or a righteous child who prays for him.” – The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), as narrated by Muslim
Sadaqah Jariyah is a gift that not only benefits others in this life but also benefits us and our loved ones in the next.
