Zakat Q&A Events with Islamic Bank of Britain
The National Zakat Foundation is pleased to be working in partnership with the Islamic Bank of Britain (IBB) to offer a series of free Zakat Q&A events at selected IBB branches in May. The events are open to all (not just IBB account holders) and are an excellent opportunity to find out more about the principles and practicalities of Zakat in Islam. Guests will also have the opportunity to ask questions and take part in a discussion about Sharia finance in general. For further details about participating branches and to register your place, please click here.
Please note: All events commence at 7pm and end at 8:30pm insha’Allah.
Zakat distribution reaches over half a million pounds
Continuing the trend from the previous month, the distribution team received a record 80 applications for support in April and distributed over £50,890 to those in need – the highest amount ever distributed in one month.
The figure for April has also taken the total amount of Zakat distributed so far to £519,377. Alhamdulillah this is a significant milestone for NZF and most importantly, our beneficiaries who without the help of Allah and NZF, would be facing severe hardships and difficulties in their struggle against poverty. You can find out more about the real lives we are supporting every day by visiting our blog.
Your Zakat in Action
Our latest video shows how your Zakat and Sadaqa donations are transforming lives for the better and features the cases of Sara, Hanan, Aasim and Ahmed who were left homeless with nowhere to turn to for support – until they found NZF.
Please share this video with as many of your contacts as possible and help spread the word about our work.
