Alleviate poverty on your doorstep this
Alhamdulillah, over recent weeks, Muslims
from all corners of the UK have come forward in large numbers and shown their
generosity by supporting the special vision of the National Zakat Foundation -
that no Muslim in need within the UK should be left abandoned.
For those of you that have already
contributed so generously, may Allah accept your donations and make them heavy
on your scale of good deeds. As you will see below, your funds are going a long
way to support the "forgotten people" of our communities.
For everyone else who is yet to pay their
Zakat or other forms of charity this Ramadhan, this is your chance! Don't miss
this amazing opportunity to invest in your own community and alleviate poverty
on your doorstep, especially in the month in which good deeds are multiplied.
July a record month for helping Muslims in
It pleases me to inform you that as the
month of mercy and generosity is upon us, so too has the National Zakat
Foundation posted a record month of supporting Muslims in need within the UK.
In the month of July, we approved £37,443 for distribution to more than 30
different applicants across the country. With Allah's help and your support, we
have housed the homeless, removed the crushing burden of debt incurred out of
necessity and helped many families to meet their basic needs of food and
You can read about some of the most recent
cases we have been dealing with on our new blog run by our Distribution Team.

Sultan Choudhury, IBB’s Managing Director,
“The blessed month of Ramadhan is upon us
once again and the holy month gives us all the opportunity to rebuild our
connection with Islam. Fasting acts as an effective, physical, way to remember
those less fortunate than ourselves, prompting us to increase our charitable
actions and donations. This year IBB is delighted to be working with the
National Zakat Foundation to help promote understanding of this vital aspect of
our faith and to assist our customers in calculating and paying their Zakat.”
The National Zakat Foundation is grateful
to IBB for its fantastic support prior to, and especially during, the month of
Ramadhan. We look forward to a fruitful, long-term relationship inshaAllah.
