About us

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

In Islam, every Muslim is obliged to give to charity in whatever form to boost his piety and spread wealth and goodwill among the whole community. It’s no surprise then that the Arabic word tasadaqa (to give charity) is derived from the word “ sadaqa” which means tell the truth or be sincere. Allah (SWT) says in the Noble Qur’an: “By no means shall you attain to righteousness until you spend (benevolently) out of what you love; and whatever thing you spend, Allah surely knows it.” (3:92)

 

Therefore voluntary charity, or sadaqa, which is different than the zakah – the compulsory alms that are collected each year – should be part of every Muslim’s daily life. Prophet Muhammad (S) said that every good deed is charity – even a smile in the face of others is charity.

 

ISRA UK is an independent non-governmental organisation (NGO) founded in the UK in 1984. With your voluntary charity (sadaqa) we provide a broad range of charitable activities for impoverished and suffering communities across the developing world. We focus on health, education, clean water and orphan sponsorship schemes.

“Whoever saved a life, it would be as if they saved the life of all mankind.”

(Qur’an 5:32)
