Assalam Alaikum, Ramadhan Mubarak, may this month bring you and your loved ones blessings, peace and reward. 

 

On behalf of ISRA UK, I would like to thank you for your continued support which has enabled us to deliver your donations to those in need around the world. Your gifts of Zakat and Sadaqa during this blessed month are essential in helping to alleviate the suffering of those less fortunate. Such good deeds are also a means of great reward for those who give part of their wealth to help others. 

 

“Allah is helping the servant as long as the servant is helping his brother” 

 

This Ramadhan we would encourage you to “Give In The Name Of Your Lord” to those still in desperate need. You can donate food packs to help families in distress, sponsor an orphan, provide water to the thirsty, or empower communities with your sadaqa, and you can help relieve hunger & hardship with your Zakat. 

 

Thousands can be reached and those most vulnerable in today’s harsh world will be given hope through our emergency relief and long term assistance. With your help we can deliver regular food supplies, shelter, clean water, child welfare, education, health and much more, last year ISRA-UK assisted over 20,000 people during Ramadhan. 

 

You have the opportunity to make the difference by once again supporting our cause – the relief of poverty world-wide. 

 

ZAKAT AL-MAL

 

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. Paying 2.5% of your wealth as Zakat, once a year, is obligatory, if you possess certain level of wealth – called nisab – currently it’ £250. So, if the total of all your assets like cash, gold, silver, shares etc is more than £250, you should pay Zakat.

IFTAR PACK £40.00 

 

During Ramadan ISRA-UK will distribute food parcels and cooked meals to orphans, widows and other vulnerable people to ensure they can break their fast and enjoy the blessed month of Ramadhan in places like Pakistan, Palestine, Somaliland, Uganda,Yemen, Turkey and Syria. 

 

ZAKAT AL-FITR £4.00 

 

Before the end of the month of Ramadhan, every adult self-supporting muslim who has food in excess of his needs must pay what is known as Zakat-ul-Fitr. He must pay for himself and can pay on behalf of his dependants (he must do this if they are unable to pay). Zakat-ul-Fitr must be paid before the Eid prayer.

Fidyah is payable for a person who has become extremely weak due to an illness or old age, has no hope of recovery and cannot fast. They must feed a deserving person twice a day or give the value of the meals. 

 

KAFFARAH £240
