Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for us to make the world a more just and generous place. By giving to Muslim organizations on Giving Tuesday, you are honoring our Prophetic tradition of charity.
Charity is an important part of our faith. It is a chance for us to create a lasting legacy for our soul by helping others. The Prophet Muhammad (on him be peace) said: “When a person dies, his works end, except for three: ongoing charity, knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.” (Muslim, Al-Tirmidhi, others).
What Is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a popular global movement that encourages people to give back on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was intended to give people a way to give back during a time of gratitude.
Since 2012, It has turned into an event that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. While Zakat Foundation has participated in Giving Tuesday since 2013, we have deeper roots in human care. Founded in 2001, Zakat Foundation has supported communities all over the world as a trusted humanitarian relief and development organization. This year, we invite you to assist orphans in two ways. You can sponsor an orphan OR contribute to our general orphan care.
Why Give On Giving Tuesday?
Giving back to organizations in your community allows us to serve our community and make a positive difference in the world. It is just one more way we can balance the frenzy of consumerism of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.
We hope that we can count on your generosity this Giving Tuesday. No amount is too small to give back to our community. If you truly can’t take part in giving this Giving Tuesday, another way you can help is by spreading the word on social media. If you can share the importance of Giving Tuesday by posting on Facebook, tweeting on Twitter, or posting on Instagram about Zakat Foundation, you can help an orphan get the critical care he or she needs.
Prophet Muhammad (on him be peace) said: “I and one who fosters the orphan shall be like this in Paradise,” and he raised his index and second fingers together, slightly apart.
We appreciate your continued love and support.
Please consider making a gift to our Launchgood campaign and support our orphans this Giving Tuesday.
