1 in 7 of the world’s population are living below the poverty line

Are you aware that 815 million people in the world are struggling with hunger? You can ease their hunger with your zakat, Zakat al- Fitr, sadaqah or other types of donations.

Since it’s founding, thanks to your donations, IHH has delivered aid to thousands of people in 135 regions of the world. IHH teams are rallying to deliver your greeting and donations to the people who are in refugee camps, victims of war, or those who are poor who can barely bring food to the table.

The worship of zakat and sadaqah, which provide the opportunity of making the world a better place to live, is the key that opens the door of kindness. Your charity can contribute in putting a stop of people’s tragedy, and ease the suffering of the world.

IHH’s Caravan of Kindness is departing to help the aggrieved and deprived of the world. Present your zakat to this Caravan of Kindness

The definition of the word zakat, which in religious terms is the donation of a specific proportion of wealth to those religiously eligible to receive zakat for the sake of seeking the pleasure of Allah, is purification, growth, betterment and blessing. Zakat, a material form of worship, is one of the five pillars of Islam that was made obligatory upon Muslims in Medina in the second year of the hijra. In the Qur’an it reveals: “And establish prayer and give zakat…” (Al-Baqarah 2:43, 110; Al-Haj 22:78; An-Nur 24:56; Al-Mujadila 58:13; Al-Muzzammil 73:20) “Take, (O, Muhammad), from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase, and invoke (Allah 's blessings) upon them. Indeed, your invocations are reassurance for them. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.” (At-Taubah 9:103)
