Very truly, We created man in a life of travail. …
Yet he has not attempted the steep road.
And do you realize what is the steep road?
It is the freeing of a human being from bondage,
or offering food on a day of starvation to an orphan who is a relative,
or to an indigent person who is down in the dust.

We help Muslims, and the charitable of every conviction, take the steep road — to carry out their Zakat and charity duties easily, correctly, and with maximum humanitarian impact by delivering their aid personally, swiftly and with dignity to the direly needful of our world — the poor, the destitute, the hungry, the thirsty, the stricken, the war-ravaged, the bereaved, and the dislocated.
