Real impact and value-for-money

We are clear in our responsibility for every penny entrusted to us and believe in a spiritual and moral obligation to accountability.

Among the leaders in the Waqf sector, we protect and enhance our high-quality programs, investing and delivering real results for the world’s most vulnerable people, whilst securing value-for-money and the lowest possible overhead costs.

We invest in developing ever-more rigorous accountability and governance systems that maximise the benefits we deliver with the contributions of our donors, which also allows us to operate effectively and efficiently.

Experience and expertise

We have helped many of the world’s most vulnerable people during the past 18 years, through returns on Sharia compliant investments. In that time, we have also developed a whole host of skills and expertise. 

Being part of Islamic Relief Worldwide which is one of the top 100 charities in the UK, our reputation and credibility mean that we can, and do, choose to work with influential bodies and institutions that share our humanitarian goals. Pooling resources and expertise, by working together we deliver real help where it is most needed. A great example of this is our membership of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) – a body of 14 agencies that coordinates emergency relief campaigns in the UK.
