Donating for charity

Muslims are keen on performing any charitable work because such works during Ramadan are rewarded. The doors of charitable works are numerous and may be countless. Charitable works include but are not limited to inviting a fasting person or more to break his/their fasting by Maghrib time, sponsoring an orphan, building a mosque etc.

During the Holy Month of Ramadan, philanthropists seek outlets through which to give alms. One of the best outlets is through Al Mir Al Ramadani project, which has been ordered by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, may Allah protect him, to be given a permanent status and which seeks to meet the needs of poorer people and of those with special needs for basic foodstuffs.

Another outlet lies in inviting fasters to break their fasting by Maghrib time. Alms-givers usually seek charities for an intermediary between them and families whose pride prevents them from asking for alms.
 
Funds may be raised in Dubai only after obtaining the approval of the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department. Those interested in raising funds have to visit the Department’s headquarters or access its website to obtain the necessary licences.
 
After obtaining the Department’s approval, a fund raiser may take this initiative only in co-operation with a Dubai-based charity association. To get a licensing form, please click here. You can donate to many charities involved in providing aid to the needy people inside and outside the UAE. A list of charities recognized by Dubai Government is given here.


The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department has set the Zakat Al Fitr at AED20, Fasters’ Iftar at AED15 each and Eid clothing at a minimum of AED40 for 2013.
