Muslim Platform Raises More than $1M on Giving Tuesday

In Islam, Zakat or charity is a mandatory charitable contribution through which the right of the poor to find relief from the rich is secured.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 274:

“Those who spend of their goods (in charity) by night and by day in secret and in public shall have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.”
