Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, introspection and prayer for Muslims, the followers of Islam. It is celebrated as the month during which Prophet Muhammad PBUH received the initial revelations of the Quran, the holy book for Muslims. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Each day during Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset. Join OUF in helping feed families this Ramadan.
Fitra is a gift of an amount of wheat (as food) or equivalent money that is given to the poor or needy. It is obligatory upon every able muslim. Without giving this, their Eid is not complete.
Through One Ummah Foundation, you can donate $7 to cover Fitra and be ready for Eid al-Fitr.
How One Ummah Foundation is
Blessing Lives Through Your
Zakat This Ramadan
The year 2020 was a historically challenging time for humanity across the globe. Poverty, sickness, hunger and conflict ran rampant, and the historic and prolific damages continue to grow. Right now, the need for generosity and caring for others is at an all-time high. During the holy month of Ramadan, Allah calls us to reflect and evaluate what we can do to improve the conditions of our fellow human beings around the world.
A Time of Extreme Need Around the World
In the year 2020 alone, it was estimated that nearly 150 million people were pushed into extreme poverty due to COVID-19.
Currently, over 820 million people go to bed hungry every night.
From 2019 to 2020, the overall world death toll percentage rate increased almost .5%, which equals almost 340 million people, equivalent to just over the entire population of the United States.
Why Choose One Ummah Foundation for Zakat this Ramadan?
This Ramadan and beyond, we ask that you consider partnering with One Ummah Foundation for Zakat or a recurring donation. Zakat isn’t just a pillar of Islam- it is critical to help spread the blessings that Allah has bestowed on us to the rest of the world.
At One Ummah Foundation, we work mostly in areas of extreme poverty, where families lack the basic necessities of life, including shelter, food, clean water, healthcare and education. We are diligent in partnering with local non-profits who intimately understand the needs of these communities because they live there themselves.
When you give Zakat to One Ummah this Ramadan, 100% of your contribution funds our humanitarian partnerships and alleviates suffering for people all over the globe. Whatever the community needs are, with your help and generosity, One Ummah is there to serve these individuals with empathy and dignity.
