SPONSORING AN ORPHANED CHILD BESTOWS THE GIFT OF A NEW LIFE AND BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR CHILDREN WHO MAY BE LEFT HELPLESS AND ALONE.

Prior to the Islamic era, the orphan was an often an ignored member of society. When the light of Islam dawned, Allah ﷻ elevated the status of this helpless individual.

 

“They ask you (O Muhammad ) what they should spend. Say: Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindred and orphans and al-Masakin (the poor) and the wayfarers, and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allah knows it well.”  (Qur’an, 2:215)

 

The fact that Allah ﷻ speaks about kindness towards the orphans alongside mentioning kindness towards one’s parents and family is not merely coincidental. He does so to show us that the care we provide to an orphan must be at par with the care we provide to our loved ones. Just as we would ensure the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our children and our parents, we must ensure the same level of well-being for an orphan.

 

ISRA-UK takes care of many orphans and underprivileged children in like Kenya, Uganda, Pakistan
(Swat NWFP & Kashmir ), Gaza, and  Yemen.

 

Our goal is to instil change and hope by providing the children with support in their areas of need. Such as Water, Food, Education, Health, and Clothing.

HOW YOU CAN HELP : 

Sponsor an orphan through our fully comprehensive sponsorship for £25 per month or £300 one off to cover a child’s basic needs.

If the orphan is in a boarding school the widow or guardian still receive a monthly amount. You will receive information about your orphan yearly.

Sponsor groups of children from £10 per month or £120 one off through our Orphan/Child sponsorship programme.

The monies collected will be used to support children in their areas of need. Such as Water, Food, Education, Health and Clothing.

Prophet Muhammad (S) said ‘I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this,’ (putting his index and middle fingers together). – Sahih al-Bukhari
