Indeed, the men who practise charity and the women who practise charity; have loaned Allah a goodly loan - it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a generous reward.
Uplift and change lives this Ramadan
Direct your giving and duas to our Palestinian brothers and sisters during the holy month.
Your kindness has the power to change lives, mend hearts and bring comfort. It also has the power to increase your good deeds and benefit you in the hereafter.
The situation facing Palestinian refugees continues to worsen and the harm caused by the humanitarian crisis continues to deepen.
Over 80% of people in Gaza are living under the poverty line, and life in the refugee camps across the West Bank, Lebanon and Jordan is marred by poverty and food insecurity.
Your Zakat and sadaqah can help alleviate the suffering of thousands of Palestinian refugees and there is no better time to give charity than in the blessed month of Ramadan.
Donate today and help to support 15,000 families across the occupied Palestinian territories, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) said: “Whoever opens the fast of a fasting person will receive a reward equal to the fasting person’s with no reduction in the reward of the fasting person.” (Sahih At-Tirmidhi)
Whether at home, in a local restaurant or community centre, by sharing your iftar with family and friends, you can help us provide urgent relief to thousands of Palestinians in need.
Our Food Programme
During Ramadan Interpal provides hot, nutritious meals, food parcels and food vouchers to families in need. This programme safeguards families from hunger, ill health and further financial strain.
Our Zakat Programme
As one of the pillars of Islam, we collect and distribute Zakat with the utmost diligence. We ensure that your zakat reaches Palestinian families that are most in need in the form of financial aid. Relieving financial burdens on families means they are able to gain access to their basic needs without having to make tough choices that nobody should have to make.

Our Sadaqah Programme
Sadaqah Jariyah, or ‘ongoing charity’, is an act of charity which is of ongoing benefit, and of which you continue to reap the rewards over time-even after death. We offer several ways in which you can support Palestinians in the long-term and earn ongoing rewards.
Giving is a powerful act of love,
duty and solidarity
We need you
The climate has become hostile for all those who support Palestinians seeking their rights. Despite the obvious humanitarian crises facing Palestinians, certain groups are seeking to hinder the work of charities like ours. There are people who want to stop us delivering aid to those in need.
With your support, Interpal will continue to overcome the obstacles it faces, as it has done for 25 years. We may not currently be able to take card donations, but you can still donate in other convenient ways so we can continue to deliver impactful aid.
Zakat, Fidya & Kaffarah Explained
Zakat is a pillar of Islam and its reward, along with all other good acts, is multiplied during the blessed month of Ramadan.
Zakat is 2.5% of wealth that has been in one’s possession for a year. If wealth amounts to less than a threshold figure, termed the nisab, then no zakat is payable. If wealth amounts to or exceeds the nisab, zakat becomes obligatory.
Anyone who cannot fast during Ramadan and is unable to make up the lost days afterwards must compensate by feeding a poor person for each day of fasting missed. Fidya for one day is what you consider to be the average cost of two meals. For UK residents, this would be around £5 per person.
Kaffarah is the payment to be made if someone intentionally breaks or misses a fast without a valid reason. They must either fast continuously for 60 days or, if this is not possible, they must feed 60 poor people with two meals for one day. For UK residents, this would cost £300 per day.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) made it compulsory for every Muslim to pay their Zakat ul-Fitr prior to Eid prayer if they have the means to do so. The money is distributed amongst the needy so that they too may enjoy Eid. The cost of this is £5 per person.
