About us

As part of the exciting changes and to reflect our new vision. In 2020, changed our name from Islamic Relief Waqf to the International Waqf Fund.

We continue to operate the charity as usual with our parent organisation Islamic Relief Worldwide, based in Birmingham.

The funds raised from our generous donors are currently being invested in Sharia-compliant investments. We have raised more than £8 million. In addition, we receive an annual average return of 5-7%. We utilise these returns to implement charity projects across the globe. In 2021 we implemented projects in sectors such as Education, Health, Sustainable Livelihoods, Water, Orphan sponsorships, Qurbani, Ramadan and Emergency Relief.

Our registered Charity number: 1162805

Our Company Reg. number: 08612172

Who we are?

Recognising the need for sustainable charity, International Waqf Fund began offering Waqf as a way to donate under our previous name Islamic Relief Waqf. The Waqf pot has been collecting and investing donations since the year 2000

The donations we receive are invested into Shariah-compliant and low risk investments. The profits which we turnover from these investments are used to continually fund a variety of projects every year. Therefore, each donation has a lasting impact from years to come, whilst each donor received ongoing and never-ending blessings.

Already, thousands of people in over 25 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Caribbean have benefitted from our projects using the returns and profits from the investments. From building and installing clean water services for the people of Sudan. In addition to supporting the people of Bosnia with sustainable livelihood projects. We focus on achieving real change through an integrated approach in order to deliver long-lasting results.

Another benefit to investing in Waqf is that part of the annual returns is kept in an Emergency and Disaster pot. As a result, it can be used immediately as and when needed.

A new type of Waqf

International Waqf Fund will venture into investment and trade in Sharia-compliant businesses across the globe.

Investments will consider sharia compliance, risk appetite, potential profits. In addition to the positive impact the investment will have on our beneficiaries. The aim is to have people leading healthier lives, Education for all and a sustainable income.

International Waqf Investment is planting the seed of this type of initiative. We want to lead the Waqf sector and become one of the largest organisations in this sector with the support of its donors.

International Waqf Fund has formed an Investment Committee to oversee all investments. They bring an extensive range of investment and programme knowledge and experience to make sound decisions

This initiative will not only bring a positive long-lasting impact on people’s lives but will bring in a new understanding of how to deliver and utilise generous donations.

Your donation keeps on giving. Your donation has infinite Good.

A new type of Waqf

International Waqf Fund will now venture into investment and trade in Sharia compliant businesses across the globe. In order to directly benefit the people of those countries in different ways. For example, reducing unemployment. Furthermore, minimizing the costs of education and medical care.

We have a number of potential and exciting ideas for the future. first, building a general hospital to be able to provide reduced and subsidized medical care.

Another potential investment project is to build a language center in Sarajevo, Bosnia to teach English and Arabic. in addition to similar aims – to provide subsidized costs towards education. Moreover, enabling this project to keep giving indefinitely.

The Social investment page on the site will be regularly updated as and when the investment feasibility studies are completed.
