Islamic charity

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “Give (in charity) and do not give reluctantly lest Allah should give you in a limited amount; and do not withhold your money lest Allah should withhold it from you.” (Narrated in Bukhari and Muslim)

Jamea al Kauthar provides Islamic and secular education for girls from different countries and backgrounds. The institute runs on low fees, subsidising the costs with donations.

Two types of donation

1. Sadaqah/Lillah – voluntary charity

Donations to a place of teaching and learning can be a means of both continuous reward (sadaqah jariyah) and passing on rewards to others (isaal al-thawab), especially because our graduates will go on to benefit hundreds of different communities, inshaAllah.

2. Zakaat – compulsory charity

This money goes towards those of our students who struggle to pay their fees and are liable for zakat. Through this, not only are you fulfilling an obligatory act (fardh), but you are also receiving continuous reward for all that they learn and teach.
