HIHFAD supports those in need by bringing aid to the most deprived areas where your Zakat could be well delivered.

What is Zakat?

Zakat is the third of the five pillars of Islam (also known as Zakah). It is a compulsory payment of 2.5% of our total savings and wealth.

How much do I pay?

After calculating all your Zakat-payable assets and deducting all your liabilities, you pay 2.5% on the net Zakat-payable asset figure.

When should I pay Zakat?

Zakat is payable as soon as Nisab (a minimum amount of wealth) has been held for a lunar year. If the date of first becoming sahib-un-nisab (owner of wealth equal or in excess of Nisab) is known then that date must be used.

Can I GiftAid Zakat?

Yes. GiftAid enhances the value of donations made by 25% and can be made by all UK taxpayers at no cost to you. Simply tick the box on the web page when you make a donation.

Sadaqah Jariyah

 You can give Sadaqah Jariyah. This blessed form of charity offers us ongoing rewards throughout our lives in this world, as well as in the Hereafter. HIHFAD programmes have been designed with this beautiful act of giving in mind.


 100% of your donation to the Waqf fund will be directed into an investment portfolio. All interest or profits generated by the assets invested by the Waqf are donated to charity.

This means that every penny you donate to our Waqf online will go on to help those who need it most. The profits from your donation will keep on growing, and keep on giving, for years to come.


If you miss or break any fasts during Ramadan you may need to pay either Fidya or Kaffarah. For fasts missed through ill health or pregnancy, which cannot be made up afterwards for legitimate reasons, Fidya is payable.

A donation of £5 per missed fast (days) is required for each individual. This donation aims to feed the hungry one day.


If fasts are broken without allowable reasons, and the compensatory two months of fasting is not possible, then Kaffarah is payable.

The requirement is to feed 60 people in need per each fast missed or broken at the rate of £5 per person (£5 x 60).


We take your Aqiqa sacrifice seriously. We only source and sacrifice the healthiest of animals for your Aqiqa, and we follow strict halal guidelines.

Each Aqiqa sacrifice will take place 7 days after you donate. The meat will go towards providing nutritious meals to those in desperate need. A girls’ Aqiqa sacrifice will provide 57 meals to the poor, whilst Aqiqa for a boy will provide 114 meals.


Required by every member of a household, including any children or elderly persons and is obligatory to pay before Eid Salah. The amount of Zakat Al-Fitr is £5 per person. This is because £5 is the average price of a meal in the UK. Zakat Al-Fitr donations are used to provide food for the needy.
