Achieving Dignity With Diligence

Zakat. An Act of Faith.

Allah (SWT) has established Zakat as a financial Ibadah (act of worship). Fulfilling your Zakat obligation with diligence brings dignity to the Muslim Ummah and to your Muslim neighbours.

Cost of Living

Pushing The Vulnerable to a Breaking Point

As the cost of living skyrockets, our brothers and sisters are being forced to choose between paying rent and feeding their families.

In 2021, 5.8 million people across Canada were living with insecure or inadequate access to food1

7 million Canadians reported going hungry at least once between March 2020 and 20222

23% of Canadians reported eating less than they needed to because they did not have enough money for groceries3

The urgency cannot be overstated.

Your act of faith can help keep the vulnerable in our community afloat amidst the rising expenses. Over the past 10 years, your support has made a tangible difference:

  • We’ve helped 34,500 people across Canada
  • Distributed over $4.2 million towards food, housing, debt relief and other community programs last year

Your Zakat enables our brothers and sisters to live with dignity.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people. And the most beloved deed to Allah is to make a Muslim happy, or to remove one of his troubles, or to forgive his debt, or to feed his hunger.”
