I want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years, to Muslim Global Relief. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Muslim Global Relief will claim 25p on every £1 donated.

Donation Total: £25.00

  • One man’s Zakat or Sadaqah might not solve the safe water crisis of a Ghanaian village. But the Zakat of several men/women can.
  • With the Big Muslim Fund, your Zakat and Sadaqah contributes to one of two pools of designated Zakat-eligible projects and sadaqah projects.
  • MGR takes these funds and puts them into development or charitable projects in villages in some of the poorest corners of the world.

Please support us when calculating your Zakat or giving Sadaqah.

Give the Means
Imagine a remote village in East Africa. Give them a safe water source. Give them sanitation. Give them some seeds and tools for farming. You’ve already eradicated disease and saved a community from thirst and starvation. You’ve protected their women and given families the means to not just feed themselves, but to make an income and even store food for the future. Through sustainable development projects, MGR helps people break out of poverty by addressing the issues that keep them poor.

One Village at a Time
At MGR, we kick-start development in poor villages through the Big Muslim Fund. We find a village in need and first give it a safe water source to enable life and end the spread of sickness through contaminated water. We install sanitation facilities to promote hygiene and eradicate disease. Then we gift fruit trees or seeds and tools for farming, which enables families to grow food they can eat and trade. Often, we even build village mosques, providing people with a place for worship, learning and community support. Then we move on to the next village in need.

Ramadan Food Aid
MGR’s Big Muslim Fund tackles thirst and hunger through development projects. We build wells and help communities in poor villages plant trees and grow crops so they can feed themselves tomorrow and in the years to come. But there are thousands of people who are facing starvation now. MGR works to reach people tackling hunger and thirst all year round, but this Ramadan we need to boost our efforts. Can you help us?

Last Ramadan, your donations enabled us to feed over 5000 people in poor villages and camps across Gaza, Ghana, India, Lebanon, Niger, Pakistan and the Philippines. This year, Palestinian families in Al-Toffah village and Syrian refugees in Iqleem Al Kharroub camp will be relying on your kindness. Mothers in Ghana’s Sabon Zongo or India’s Panbaraj village are praying that the Holy Month will come with blessings of plenty, so that they can feed their children well. Please support us so that we won’t have to let them down.

Zakat ul Fitr – £6
Zakat ul Fitr or Fitrana, is compulsory charity paid by Muslims at the end of the fasting month. Every adult Muslim who possesses food in excess of his/her needs (approx. 2kg) must pay Zakat ul Fitr for him/herself and on behalf of dependants.

The accepted amount for Zakat ul Fitr is £6 per head. Though this is payable until the morning before Eid Prayer, we urge donors to give theirs in advance. By doing so, you’ll be allowing the families who rely on your Fitr to make their preparations for Eid.

Fidya – £6
Fidya is payable by those who are unable to fast during the month of Ramadan for valid reasons (due to poor health etc.) Such a person must pay to feed a poor person (2 meals a day) for every day of fasting he/she misses. This is called Fidya.

At MGR, we distribute Fidya to the poor, in the form of food. The standard cost of Fidya for a single missed fast is £6. £60 is the total cost of Fidya for the whole month, and is paid forward as an MGR food parcel containing a month’s supply of food.

Kaffarah – £360
Kafarah is payable by those who intentionally don’t fast during Ramadan, without a valid reason. It is compensation which requires feeding a person (2 meals a day) for 60 days, or feeding 60 people for a day. Alternatively, such a person must fast for 60 consecutive days.

At MGR, we distribute Kaffarah to the poor in the form of food. The cost of Kaffarah is £360.
