Our CEO Iqbal Nasim was asked onto Andrew Pierce’s show on LBC radio to talk about the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and how Zakat is helping people with quick access grants in their moment of need.

The interview covers:

  1. The rapid rise in demand for NZF’s support and how we are meeting this need to help people who are struggling across the country.
  2. Why Muslims, as well as BAME communities, are so vulnerable in this crisis.
  3. Whether Muslims will stick to social distancing guidelines during Ramadan, which begins in under a week.

If you’re a Muslim in need of support during these difficult times, Zakat is a lifeline to help you get by. Apply for help at www.nzf.org.uk/apply and if you qualify for Zakat we’ll be able to help you with quick access to funds to cover basics like food, groceries, nappies and medicine.

If you have Zakat to give, now is the time for local Zakat. Right here, right now, demand for Zakat in the UK is at record levels. Please consider giving even some of your Zakat through NZF: https://nzf.org.uk/pay-zakat/
