The Blessed Lands

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, 'O Allah, bless us in our Shaam! O Allah, bless us in our Yemen!' [Tirmidhi]

The people of Shaam (Greater Syria) and Yemen were particularly dear to the Prophet Muhammad's (saw) heart, and he used to pray for these blessed lands. Yet today, these lands are suffering due to conflict, displacement and impoverishment.

It is our responsibility and our honour to support 'our Shaam' and 'our Yemen'. From making du'a to raising awareness to giving charity, there is so much you can do to help. Not only will you be providing vital relief and saving lives, you will also be drawing closer to the Prophet (saw) by loving and serving the people whom he loved.

Our teams are on the ground, distributing food in Jerusalem, rehabilitating water wells in Yemen, running bread factories in Syria and Yemen, and much more.

Your Zakat and Sadaqah are essential to supporting orphans, widows and war-torn communities.

We urge you to give generously to the people the Prophet (saw) prayed for. Don't forget them in their hour of need.

Support Allah's Best Servants

'It (Shaam) is the chosen land of Allah in all of His earth, to which He selects His best servants'. [Abu Dawud]

Over a decade of conflict has taken its toll on the families of Syria, with millions of people displaced and dependent on humanitarian assistance. In the context of the coronavirus pandemic, their burdens have only increased, and they need your support more than ever.

Your Zakat and Sadaqah are making a huge difference to suffering families, providing food, medical care and essential items in northern Syria.

  • £100 feeds a Syrian family for a month.
  • £3,000 builds a home for a displaced Syrian family.
