Organize a fundraiser. Involve friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, students, groups, social media. Whatever the result, you will have contributed something positive. Here are some of the real life examples:
Women in New York raised funds from their weekly dhikr circle to finance two wells.
A boy got his Boy Scout troop interested in helping Syrian refugees. They donated to our Ashura campaign in Lebanon.
College students hosted three fundraisers and a doctor raised funds from her colleagues for our Refugee Aid program for Rohingya refugees.
Young girls sold baked goods at their local mosque every night during Ramadan iftar and raised enough money to feed six families for a month through our Breaking Bread soup kitchen.
A college student asked his Muslim Student Association (MSA) to support our Ramadan Kareem Food Drive. Their contribution fed fifty needy families for a month.
A man collected generous donations from his family and friends that financed 150 monthly food parcels in Delhi, India.
(The righteous are those) who feed the poor, the orphan and the captive for the love of God, saying, “We feed you for the sake of God Alone: we seek from you neither reward nor thanks.”
[Holy Quran, 76: 8-9]
Jabir (r) reported: Rasulullah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, “The best of the people are those who are most beneficial to others.”
“Good deeds whose reward 'flows' to you after your death include: knowledge you taught and promulgated; a righteous child who lived after you; a copy of the Qur'an you left as inheritance; a mosque you built; a house you built for travelers and/or displaced refugees; a stream (or well) you dug or directed for others' benefit; a charity given from your wealth."
Zaid bin Arqam narrated: The Companions said: “O Prophet of Allah, what are these sacrifices?” He ﷺ said: “The Sunnah of your father, Ibrahim.” They said: “What is there for us in them?” He ﷺ said: “For every single hair of the wool, one goodness.”
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said the best charity is to give water. He also said to construct a well is Sadaqa al-Jaariya, an everlasting donation that rewards you or a deceased loved one continuously, even in the grave.
Establish Salat and pay Zakat and obey the Messenger so that you may be favored with mercy.
(Holy Qur'an, 24:56)
