Reasons to donate to theIF

theIF is registered with the UK Charity Commission

We accept the following donations :


Alms are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts are to be reconciled; for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah, and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.

According to this verse, Zakat can be spent in eight categories. The seventh category where Zakat can be spent is ‘in the way of Allah’. All the major schools of thought agree that this refers to jihad or fighting for the sake of Allah (swt) in order to protect and uphold the Islamic faith. Since jihad is not restricted to military action alone, scholars, past and present, have further commented upon this verse and consider the seekers of knowledge due to their role in the community as future scholars as eligible for Zakat monies.

Sadaqah / Lillah

And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: and whatever good you send forth for your souls before you, you shall find it with Allah: for Allah sees well all that you do.
For those who give in charity, men and women and loan to Allah a beautiful loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit), and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward.
Spend in charity and do not keep count for then Allah will also keep count in giving you provision.
(Bukhari and Muslim)

The most beloved deed before Allah (swt) is that which is continuous, even if it is little. The constant giving of a little is said to please Allah (swt) more than the occasional gift of much. This type of continuous giving in the form of charity is known as “Sadaqah Jariyah”, and there are many virtues associated with it. Islam regards giving charity as a highly commendable act. The giving of Sadaqa Jariyah benefits the donor even after they have passed away, for as long as people receive benefit from the donor’s charity.


We accept any lawful monetary donation.
