This is an incredible, outstanding organization that truly seeks to better the world for the right reasons. In a time when so much suffering is going on around the world (including our brothers and sisters in Burma, Syria, Yemen, and across the world), IRUSA is doing very very important work.
This Islamic relief charity is amazing! They are in places that are hard to reach to give aid to. I'm really glad they exist so I can help my brothers and sisters in Myanmar.. may god be with you and help your staff deliver aid for these oppressed people! Amen
I just donated to this great charity and I feel that I can certainly trust them that the donations will all go to where they were assigned to go just as I chose; they were transparent and clear about where the money will go. I hope they always keep that transparency and only go up from there about transparency.
I used to give zakat to IRUSA but discontinued several years ago because of their very high admin. expenses and much lower expenditure on relief programs compared to some other Islamic charities. Their CEO and other employees are too highly paid (including benefits) for an Islamic charity organization. Just look at their IRS forms 990 available on Charity Navigator. They should fear Allah swt and cease making this a money-making organization for their employees.
Do not forget to check out their IRS forms 990 for the past several years.
I am a regular donor of Islamic Relief USA and I have worked with this world's renowned charity in South Asia, Africa and USA. I have first-hand experience of how the services are delivered to the people who are in need in some of the world's difficult to reach areas that are affected by disasters, wars and conflicts. Hats off for IRUSA! Keep up the good work. At Islamic Relief, staff not only fulfill their responsibilities but in such a responsible way that most of times they go out of the way. Some times they put their own lives at risk but that is to save many other lives. They work in a professional manner so all the due diligence is done before deploying staff on the ground particularly in war and conflict zones.
I didn't know that the zakat amount includes 12.5% admin fee and other types of donation has 10.68% admin fee.
We as Believers have an Obligation to give, and with our Holy Month Of Ramadan, our giving should be so easy. When we take time to reflect on our daily Blessings, Allah has given us 86,400 seconds, per day, Our Hearts started beating , while we were still in our Mother's Womb, and If we never go into Cardiac Arrest, and we are blessed to live for 90 years, that means our hearts have been beating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, plus Womb Time, for 90 years . How could we ever feel, we don't owe Allah, and feel the need to RUSH AND GIVE, TODAY. RAMADAN MUBARAK. Hajjah Miniimah Bilal-Elahi
Inspiring to see people helping one another. In times of dire need we need organizations like IRUSA to step forward and help the umma. May ALLAH accept the donations of people and bless those who are in any way helping to bring about any difference in this world.
Blessed to find an organization that is making a difference in the lives of those who are in such dire need. I have volunteered with IRUSA in the past as well. Anything we can do to make the lives of others better is something we must do for "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop.
So please, give in whatever capacity you can!
I am glad that there are people like us out there who have offered support to Syrians, Palestinians, Yemens, Afghans, Iranians, Turkish, people of the Ummah basically who show the world leaders who are the cause behind this evil actions. I will continue include in my dua that this harm to humanity must stop for the Love of Allah. (s.w.t.)
I hope to give more and that is why I strive hard in life to find success in order to contribute donations. I have always struggled to find work, love, friends, and getting up for fajr.... Well my problems are nothing incomparably to them innocent people.
I lost my brother 5 months ago and I know the pain it brings... He was healthy young and full of goodness yet his life was taken away by the same enemies, corrupt people and evil doers...
May we find peace in this life and the next. And protection from Allah (s.w.t) against the punishment of hellfire the home of the evil ones resting place...
Great work being done for the kids there--program always expanding. Started as a feeding program, then orphanage and now vocational training center off the ground! Phenomenal.
This is a great organization doing charitable work around the world by a group of totally dedicated workers.
I'm an Islamic Relief volunteer and I love how much passion goes into doing the positive and crucial work that's done nationally and internationally!
The first thing I noticed about this organization was how passionate the staff and volunteers were. It was evident that the people there wanted to be there and were helping whole-heartedly. Some of the best and kindest people I've ever met, hands down! I volunteered a few times for them and enjoyed every minute of it!
I research the causes I donate to in order to make sure my money goes where I intend it, and trust Islamic Relief for this. Will continue to support them.
I have volunteered at numerous events with Islamic Relief and I truly love the work they do. I also trust Islamic Relief with my donations and know many people who feel the same.
I trust IRUSA with my donations..hands down! I trust that my money will be going to the exact fund I donate to. I also like how there is such a wide variety of funds I am always able to support. I have never had an issue donating and the website makes it easier too.. overall great organization!
Islamic Relief is dedicated to being involved in communities. They look to build relationships and make changes everywhere they go. They're also honest and open about their work and that's important with non-profit organizations. I love the work they do and appreciate all of their efforts!
I sponsor an orphan in Africa through Islamic Relief. They provided me an opportunity to really make a difference in a child's life and I am forever grateful.
I also volunteered for them many times on many different projects. They are extremely reliable and they really do this work for the sake of humanity. May God reward them for their efforts.
I've been using Islamic Relief USA for all my donations for the last five years. They are professional, dedicated and very organized.
