It’s been a heavy start to the year. In the face of a global pandemic, we’ve been reminded of our own fragility, and have found ourselves leaning on one another, ensuring we work together for the sake of our world – our Ummah.

For millions of Muslims around the world, the holy month of Ramadan is a time of reflection, kindness, fasting, prayer, patience and charity. A month of endless blessings, Ramadan is THE month that defines who we are and reminds us of what we’re about here at READ Foundation.

Too many vulnerable people - our sisters and brothers - are struggling with the effects of poverty and now, the consequences of a global pandemic.

“When the month of Ramadan arrives, the doors of mercy are opened.”
– Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

YOU can be the difference this Ramadan. Your Zakat and Sadaqah donations during this month are so powerful, they not only fulfill Islamic obligations, but they also help relieve families with children who have suffered through conflict and provide orphaned children with hope for a brighter future.

You have the opportunity to be the difference.


More than just a portion of our income, Zakat is a fundamental pillar of our faith. When you give your Zakat through READ Foundation, it has the potential to uplift and transform lives in big ways for years to come.


Allah SWT tells us in the Qu’ran that that the reward of spending in charity is like “a grain of corn which grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains” (2:261). Our Education and orphan projects are a true example of how one act of charity keeps multiplying.
Reap immeasurable rewards this Ramadan with your Sadaqah.
Be the difference.
