Ramadan has come to you. (It is) a month of blessing, in which Allah (swt) covers you with blessing, for He sends down mercy, decreases sins and answers prayers… In it, Allah looks at your competition (in good deeds), and boasts about you to His angels. So show Allah goodness from yourselves.

The Prophet Mohammed (pbuh)

Ramadan Mubarak from Rahma Relief Foundation!

Six consecutive Ramadan seasons have passed and we are witnessing the seventh one. Yet, the situation of the Syrian people hasn’t been improved. It is getting even worse

Ramadan is an opportunity to give and provide for individuals who are less fortunate. As our work continues to expand, it’s vital to reflect on what we’ve accomplished, and set out new challenges for us to grow. We would like to take a moment to thank all of our generous donors and all individuals who believe in our mission. This Ramadan you have an opportunity to help in different ways.

Our challenge

Over the course of these 30 days, with your continued support, we are aiming to feed:

1.5 million refugee beneficiaries.

OUR PLANS IN RAMADAN

Deliver Ramadan Food Baskets

Another way to provide meals during Ramadan is through our food baskets program. Each basket is accommodated to family size. Our challenge this month is to distribute: 30,000 baskets

Sponsoring this campaign for the month of Ramadan is: $120.00 USD

  1 Ramadan Food Basket for 1 family of five for 4 weeks: $120.00

1 Ramadan Food Basket for 1 family of five for 2 weeks: $60.00

1 Ramadan Food Basket for 1 family of five for 1 weeks: $30.00

Establish Soup Kitchens

Many refugee families don’t have access to working kitchen appliances to prepare suhoor or iftar. We have established soup kitchens in various locations in Syria and Lebanon that are operated by RRF team members who prepare freshly made meals, making sure every refugee is able to break their fast and eat. Our challenge this month is to make about:

1500 iftar meals daily, per kitchen.

Sponsoring this campaign for a day of Ramadan is: $1,500.00 USD.

Sponsor More Orphans

Children are the most vulnerable in every society. The situation is even worse when they are orphaned  in a war torn country.

During this blessed month of Ramadan, and with your generous donation, Rahma Relief is aiming to sponsor 2000 more orphans to benefit from our Orphan care program

Orphan Sponsorship is a one year commitment for $60.00  a month.

$60 for 12 month  or $720 for 1 year, whichever is convenient for you, you will be saving the life of a child and securing his or her future.

ZAKAT

And establish prayer and give zakat, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves—you will find it with Allah; surely Allah sees what you do.

the Holy Qur’an (2:110)

Rahma Relief Foundation’s Programs are Zakat eligible because our beneficiaries are needy who have left their homes and live now as refugees in camps in Turkey or Lebanon or Jordan or displaced away from their homes. They have no jobs and their lives have been shattered

Frequently Asked Questions about Zakat

What is Zakat ?

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam and it enjoins upon able Muslims to give from their wealth to aid the needy. Zakat is not an optional sadaqa (voluntary charitable contribution). It s the right of the poor to find relief in the wealth of the rich. Zakat is a specific contribution collected from the surplus wealth and earnings of the Muslim and it is his duty to pay it once every Lunar year (Hijri year), if you posses at least the minimum amount of eligible wealth, known is Nisab.

What is Nisab?

Nisab is the minimum of wealth you must own in order to be liable to pay Zakat. It is estimated at 3 oz. of pure gold, value at $4,700.00 Dollars.

Who should pay Zakat?

Every financially able Muslim male and female must give Zakat in order to fulfill his or her obligation. As stated above, financial ability is determined by owning the minimum Nisab for a complete lunar year.

When is Zakat Due?

Zakat is due after one lunar (Hijri) year starting from the day you acquired the amount of Nisab. Most Muslims pay their Zakat in Ramadan for multiple rewards.
