CHARITY & COMMUNITY SERVICES
We endeavour to serve the community without any fear or favour. Our community spirit is based on:
- The belief that humanity as a whole is one community, created in Jannah by Allah (SWT) and its final destination is Jannah. It originated from Adam and Hawa (AS).
- The whole creation is a family of Allah (SWT).
Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. Muslims are required to continuously give in charity secretly without expecting anything in return in this world. In the Holy Qur’an the injunction of ‘Giving or Spending’ has been repeated more than 82 times. Charity and Salah are mentioned together both in the Holy Qur’an and also in the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
Islamic Charity does not recognise any differences of colours or creeds. We are obliged to take every possible step to ensure the welfare and well-being of humanity as a whole.
To meet this obligation, we invest in long-term projects to ensure better usage of our resources. We give priority to the UK projects. Our priority is to provide better education to our children in the UK. You can contribute to our charity projects. Mumin Aid runs projects in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sudan.
Following four are the flagship projects:
1.Sponsoring Hifz students for ££500 – £650/00
Prophet (PBUH) stated: “The best among you is he who learns and teaches the Qur’an.” By sponsoring a student to become a Hafiz you will also be counted amongst the Best Ones and receive the benefit in both worlds. You can pay the £500 to £650/00 over three years.
2.Water Project £575/00
Sa’d ibn Ubadah (RA) reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, my mother has died. Shall I give charity on her behalf?” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Yes.” I said, “Which charity is best?” The Prophet said, “A drink of water.” A-Nasa’i.
You can provide a Tube-well or Water-well for only £200 to £575/00 (depending on area). This will quench the thirst of many and you and your loved ones receive the tremendous reward of Sadqa-Jariah, continuous charity.
3.Building house for the needy and orphans.
Allah (SWT) said: “And in their wealth, there was the right of the beggars and the unfortunate.” Az-Zariyat.
Sahl ibn Sa’d (RA) reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate. Bukhari.
How many people are living under the naked sky without a roof over their heads? Who would shelter them? A single story two bed rooms house only costs around £3700/00. You can pay this amount over one whole year.
4.Student Loan to UK Madrasah and University students.
Substantial number of adult Muslim students are dropping out of higher Islamic and University education due to financial hardship or not taking the student loan because to interest. BMF Student Loan provides loan to Students to continue with their education. It is the unanimous Fatwa of Ulama that Zakat money can be spent on the education of our mature students. What will be the best way of spending our Zakat than securing the future of our younger generation? Take the benefit of this initiative.
