Leave No One Behind

Thousands of Muslims across Canada, are urgently in need of your Zakat to help protect them from hunger, eviction and debt.

Support Single Parents

Your Zakat Strengthens Our Community

Meet Sara.
Sara is a single mother who is currently struggling to make ends meet, despite working multiple jobs. For the past three months, Sara has been going hungry every night, so that there is enough food for her children.
Her struggles do not end there. Unable to cover her full rent, Sara’s landlord is currently threatening her with eviction, which will leave her and her small children homeless.

Financial burdens and the relentless effort to provide for their children can be overwhelming for single parents. When you give your Zakat locally, you help single mothers like Sara, by providing housing assistance, food, and the support needed to overcome obstacles, and strengthen our community.

Provide dignity to our elders

Your Zakat Means They Don't Suffer Alone

Meet Ahmed.
Ahmed was recently diagnosed with cancer, leaving him unable to work. With no family to rely on for support, he exhausted his savings trying to make ends meet. Currently, the little government benefits he receives do not even cover his full rent. Ahmed is desperately in need of assistance to navigate through these challenging times.

With rising costs of living, or elderly community members find themselves facing financial challenges and vulnerable living situations. It is our duty as Muslims to care for our elders and support their well-being.

Your Zakat and Sadaqah have the power to ensure they do not suffer alone.

Support Families with Special Needs

Your Zakat Helps Them Heal

Meet Mohamed
Mohamed’s son is currently battling
Multiple Sclerosis, slowly robbing him of his vision and energy. Sadly, this year, Mohamed also lost his wife to cancer, leaving him to care for their three children alone. Working two jobs, he struggles to afford his son’s special dietary needs. Their financial strain feels endless.  

Families with special needs face unique challenges in accessing medical care, food, housing, and transportation. By providing them with support, we can empower these families to focus on their health and healing.

uplift newcomers & refugees

Your Zakat Helps Them Rebuild Their Lives

Meet the Noori Family
Arriving with only their backpacks and a few essentials, the Noori family left everything they knew to seek refuge and safety in Canada. This family of five shares a single room in a hotel, and despite government support, they barely have enough food to feed their family, with no access to halal options.

Supporting Muslim refugees and newcomers is vital to building a community that cares for and uplifts one another. By providing food, rent assistance, and essentials, we can help them rebuild their lives with dignity and hope.

Give your Zakat and Sadaqah locally and leave no one behind.

Zakat in the Qur’an and Hadith

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbas that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
“There are no days during which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these days,” meaning the (first) ten days of Dhul- Hijjah. They said: “O Messenger of Allah! Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah?” He said: “Not even Jihad in the cause of Allah, unless a man goes out with himself and his wealth and does not bring anything back.”
