Ramadan 2020/1441: Ramadan Giving Day 2 - Islamic Relief

Our Ramadan Giving series highlights the amazing work charities are doing and showcases their special Ramadan campaigns, giving us all the opportunity to support, donate and do a little good insh’Allah

Ramadan Giving Day 2: Islamic Relief
Islamic Relief is an international aid agency that provides humanitarian relief and development programmes in over 30 countries, serving communities in need regardless of race, political affiliation, gender or belief. Founded in 1984 in the UK, it now works across 50 countries.

Islamic Relief were the first Muslim charity to join the UK’s Disaster Emergencies Committee (DEC) and has consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council.

Currently, the charities main campaign is focussed on one of the most vulnerable groups of people: refugees and displaced:

“In the midst of conflict in Syria, refugee families were already lacking shelter, food and medical equipment. Because of the outbreak of Coronavirus, their struggles are increasing.

Getting critical access to food and hygiene is incredibly challenging at this time. Especially for vulnerable communities – including displaced families in Myanmar, people in Yemen and for those recovering from the effects of natural disaster across Africa and Asia”

O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you ~ Quran 2:254

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good” (Bukhari).
