Zakah is a means of purifying one’s wealth and soul. It is one of the five pillars of Islam, and a financial obligation for every eligible Muslim.
By giving your Zakah through Human Aid & Advocacy, you can rest assured that it will be used to support and empower some of the most disadvantaged communities around the world.
Your Zakah donations are handled with the greatest of care to ensure they reach eligible recipients quickly and securely.
The beauty of the Human Aid Zakah Fund means that your donations are shared amongst all our Zakah projects. This allows you to gain reward across multiple countries and projects.
All our projects have been verified by our Islamic Scholars Board.
Please note that all projects are Sadaqah eligible too.
Pay Your Zakah the Correct Way.
