Donate a Waqf Share in Ramadan
The holy month of Ramadan arrives once a year. In this year, we all have the opportunity to give back. Similarly, many struggling families anxiously await this month to receive some of what would make their lives better.
The beauty of Ramadan lies in giving. Although Ramadan Zakat is compulsory, there are many voluntary giving opportunities such as Sadaqah and Waqf that is equal to Sadaqah Jariyah.
In Ramadan, we can give our time, our effort and our money. He who gives receives tremendous joy and multiplied rewards in return. Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) was the most generous, and in Ramadan, he was even more generous.
Giving in Ramadan
One of the common forms of giving in Ramadan is donating to the poor: relatives and non-relatives and providing them with food to break their fast.
Another form of giving in Ramadan is donating to charities that distribute food packages, sponsor education, provide health treatment, among many other services.
Allah said in Quran: “Those who spend their wealth by night and day, privately and publicly, will receive their reward from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor shall they grieve.” [2:274]
Ramadan Waqf Share
In commitment to the values of Islam, the International Waqf Fund (IWF) presents the Ramadan Waqf Share, in which food packs will be distributed to those who need them.
Through a Ramadan Waqf Share, IWF receives your donations and invests them. Then, we use the returns from investment to supply vulnerable families with food essentials in 30+ countries around the world in cooperation with Islamic Relief.
Unlike the usual types of food pack donations you can give, IWF provides you the opportunity to make your one donation last a lifetime. We invest your initial donation and use the continuous returns yearly to provide a food pack every year in your name. With this Ramadan Waqf Share, we are providing you the opportunity to give sustainably this year and gain ongoing rewards every year thereafter. Hence, a Waqf Share with IWF equals Sadaqah Jariyah.
To achieve the highest levels of transparency to our donors, you will receive, once donating, a Waqf Share receipt in addition to annual reports explaining the investment process and the implemented charity projects using your Waqf Share.
You can donate a Waqf Share or split one with whom you love. Any amount of donations is well-received and will be invested.
