Zakat Food Appeal
In 2020, the gap between the poor and the wealthy widened multitudes beyond what it was in 2019. The impoverished are worse off than they’ve ever been before. We all know the stories of the early generation of Muslims, and how concerned they were with looking after the dejected, feeding the hungry, and addressing the needs of people. This Ramadan, we have the opportunity to not be limited to listening to the stories of the Sahabah, we can live them through establishing the institution of Zakat and practicing it.
Your Zakat obligations are so much more than a soulless tax on your wealth. The institution of Zakat brings about a sea of positive change to the communities that benefit from your Zakat. One of the most important functions is to feed the hungry. When the Prophet Muhammad was asked which aspect of Islam is best, he replied “Offering food (to the needy) and greeting with Salam those whom you know and those whom you do not know.”
This Ramadan, Human Concern International is setting a goal of feeding 175,000 people. We want to see a world where no woman, man, or child goes to bed without food in their stomach. Your donation will fuel the fight against hunger and poverty.
Donate your Zakat today and uphold the legacy of the first generation of Muslims.

OUR STAFF COMMENTS
