Donate your Zakat through As-Suffa and support local as well as international projects.
Alhamdulillah, As-Suffa have established a Zakat fund where all Zakat collected is pooled and distributed to needy as prescribed by Allah and His messenger (pbuh). Alhamdulillah we are delivering aid internationally through Muslim Aid.
We have taken the time to ensure that all the Zakat we distribute is in accordance to the traditional rights of distribution, where the needs of the poor and suffering are met; irrespective of whether we distribute locally or internationally.
Alhamdulillah, all the Zakat we collect and distribute is subject to a 100% donation policy; so every penny of your Zakat will get to the recipient insha Allah.
Sadaqah Jariyyah (Continuous Charity)
The As-Suffa Institute started in 2004 as a place for the teaching and learning of classical Islam. Over the years, alhamdulillah, we have developed the full and part time Aalimiyyah courses that are delivered by scholars who are trained in classical Islam. The Aalimiyyah programme is open to both brothers and sisters, with qualified female scholars to deliver the full time syllabus to the sisters.
Since 2012, As-Suffa Outreach have been working in the homeless space. To date we’ve served over 200,000 hot meals to the homeless across the UK, alhamdulillah. We provide not only food in the form of a freshly cooked hot meal, but also a warm and welcoming environment.
By Allah’s grace, we are now operating in 8 cities across the UK.
Food Bank Outreach
The As-Suffa food bank runs every week from our site in Birmingham. In 2017 we served over 370 food parcels to individuals and families who were in need. All our food parcels contain enough content to suffice an average size family for a week. Alhamdulillah, we now work with several referral partners, such as the police service and the local council who give our food bank vouchers to people in need.
