This Ramadhan give your Zakat to sponsor a widow and/or sponsorship for a needy mother.

The Responsibility

The Islamic ruling is that after the husband, the responsibility of a woman’s assistance and maintenance falls on the son, father, and brother respectively. Failing that for whatever reason, the responsibility falls on the community around her and failing that the responsibility falls on the Muslim Ummah.

It is hard work for a widow or single mother anywhere in the world to financially support as well as raise their family. In countries like Pakistan, where government handouts are rare, it becomes almost impossible. A divorced or bereaved woman is often left to her own devices in an environment where a woman is seen as inferior. Life is so hard that some women will be very lucky to get even a semi-decent job.

Therefore Save the Mothers Trust aims to alleviate their difficulties by providing financial aid with the help of your kind donations. Living costs vary from location to location, however, are approx. £35/ Month to cover basic essentials.

The one who strives for widows and the poor is like the Mujahid in the way of Allah (swt), or one who stand in night prayers or  fasts durting the day.<

(al-Bukhari)

The Problem

I
t is very difficult for widows to financially support themselves if they have children to look after. This problem is aggravated in countries which do not offer any support to them.

By sponsoring a widow and her children, you can ameliorate their difficulties by covering their basic needs. Join our “Sponsor a Widow Program” today, your sponsorship will help a widow and her family by providing them with basic necessities so they are able to lead their daily lives without facing difficulty.

Buying a utensil for even a Daaniq (one-sixth of a dirham) and giving it to my brother as a gift for the pleasure of Allah is more beloved to me than spending a Dinaar in the path of Allah.

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR DONATION BY 25%
With Gift Aid, your donation of £10.00 would be worth £12.50 at no extra cost to you.

For every £1 you donate you can add an extra 25% at no extra cost to yourself through Gift Aid. By selecting ‘Gift Aid’ you confirm that you are a UK Tax Payer, and are eligible to boost your donation by 25%. Like every charity, we have basic operating costs which are an important part of ensuring your donations have maximum impact and reach those in need. We recover these costs through Gift Aid.

Gift Aid Guidance

In order for Save the Mothers trust to reclaim the tax you have paid on your donations, you must have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) equal to the tax that will be claimed by all the charities that you donate to (currently 25p for every £1 you give) in the same tax year.

The tax reclaimed will be used to help fund the administration costs of the charity so more of your actual donation can go directly to those in need.

Gift Aid can be added to your donation if you are donating your own money. We regret that Gift Aid cannot be reclaimed if you are paying donations you collected from others, even if everyone was a UK taxpayer. Neither can it be reclaimed on donations made by companies. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. Gift Aid can not be claimed on payments for any ticketed events.

Please notify us if you are no longer eligible, wish to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address or if you no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and / or capital gains.

By ticking the gift aid it box you agree that you are eligible to claim Gift Aid as explained above and that we can treat this donation, any donations made in the last 4 years and future donations as Gift Aid and that you understand that if you pay less Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
