Recognising the need for sustainable charity, Islamic Relief began offering Waqf as a way to donate in 2000. By investing your donation in our Shariah compliant shares, your gift to charity can keep on giving, people will continue to benefit year on year, and you can achieve ongoing and never-ending blessings.
Already, thousands of people in over 25 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Caribbean have benefitted from our projects. From building new homes for orphans in Bangladesh to supporting disabled refugees in Lebanon, we focus on achieving lasting change through an integrated approach in order to deliver long-lasting results.
This great Sunnah was encouraged by the Prophet (pbuh): “When a person dies their actions come to an end but three, ongoing charity, knowledge from which people continue to benefit and righteous offspring who pray for them”.
Inspired by our Islamic values, we envisage a world where communities are empowered, social obligations are fulfilled and people respond as one to the suffering of others.
Working closely with partners and donors, we provide sustainable solutions that improve the socio-economic conditions of poor and vulnerable people.
We are guided by the timeless values and teachings of the Qur’an and Prophetic example (Sunnah), which recognise that people with wealth have a duty to those who are less fortunate. Our values are: Sincerity (Ikhlas), Social justice (Adl), Compassion (Rahma), Custodianship (Amana) and Excellence (Ihsan).
