How we use your donation

A centuries-old Islamic tradition established by the Prophet Muhammad (peace abe upon him), Waqf is a form of charitable giving that has provided sustainable support to charitable, educational and religious causes throughout the Muslim world.

It is a donation of money, property or other assets, the profit from which is given away as charity. Giving Waqf means never-ending blessings for the donor, as their gift keeps on giving – the original gift is preserved intact so it can continue to help vulnerable people year after year (sadaqa jariyah).

Recognising the need for sustainable charity, in the year 2000, Islamic Relief began offering Shariah compliant Waqf shares as a way to donate.

Since then, the generosity of Waqf donors has powered life-saving and life-changing humanitarian intervention in over 25 countries worldwide.
