Sadaqa In Honour Of A Loved One2021-01-07T12:10:07+00:00

Have mercy on your deceased through giving Sadaqa.

– Prophet Muhammad (saww)


Giving Charity

Sadaqa is a term in Arabic that describes recommended charity, given to the poor and needy. Great emphasis is placed in Islamic traditions on giving Sadaqa, as a means for providing for the needs of the less fortunate and establishing social justice, in addition to purifying one’s soul.

Furthermore, there are rewards promised in Islamic traditions for those who give Sadaqa. These include increasing sustenance, prolonging one’s life, preventing afflictions, and healing illnesses.

These divine rewards are acquired at the moment that ownership of the money intended as Sadaqa transfers to the needy person or their guardian, in a manner of their choosing. At this moment, the money becomes ‘Received Sadaqa’ or ‘Sadaqa Maqbootha’.

Did You Know?

Over 20,000 orphaned children who are not yet sponsored are currently being lifted out of poverty through your Sadaqa giving!

All money received as Sadaqa is distributed exclusively as part of monthly allowances provided to orphaned children. We have thorough processes in place to ensure the eligibility of all recipients, and that they satisfy the Islamic requirements of being in need. The mothers or guardians of the children visits their local branch to receive these allowances.


Why is the Sadaqa I give through Al-Ayn considered ‘received Sadaqa’?*

In light of his general guardianship over orphaned children and the needy, Al-Sayyed Ali Al-Sistani has considered the act of placing money in Al-Ayn’s Sadaqa Boxes or giving electronic Sadaqa to Al-Ayn to be a transfer of ownership to him, on behalf of the orphaned children. Hence money placed in Al-Ayn’s Sadaqa boxes is considered Sadaqa Maqbootha (Received Sadaqa), and the rewards of Sadaqa are reaped immediately.

Likewise, we are committed to ensuring that electronic Sadaqa donated to Al-Ayn, including on this page, (excluding transaction fees) achieves the status of Sadaqa Maqbootha (Received Sadaqa) by the end of the next working day*.


Every penny raised from your donations provides direct relief to orphaned children and their families suffering through loss and poverty.

An Update

In light of the current global crisis, many families are unable to reach their local offices. In these circumstances, provisions are in place to deliver the aid to their door. We are grateful that despite the crisis, we have continued to reach the families through a grassroots effort across Iraq.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
