Are you Ramadan Ready? The Month of Giving and Multiplying Your Rewards is Here 

We all know giving charity is an important part of Islam, in fact, Zakat is one of the third pillars of Islam and there’s no better time to give, than to give in Ramadan.

Did you know that the best charity given is that given in Ramadan? Why? It’s because your good deeds are multiplied tenfold in Ramadan, this means that when you give charity, not only are you helping others, you’re reaping the maximum rewards you can gain, you’re also investing in your Akhirah and your future. 

 We at Save an Orphan wanted to remind you of the many ways you can give charity so you can receive all the blessings this month has to offer. 

Donate Zakat

This is your obligated giving. Zakat is to be paid on 2.5% of your wealth to ensure barakah in your life. We at Save an Orphan use your Zakat to transform lives, to make a difference, to help orphans in crisis. 

 Zakat purifies your wealth so as you give and help children and guardians in need, you’re also resetting the intentions of your wealth through a type of cleansing. 

Those in whose wealth there is a recognised right for the needy and the poor” 

(Qur’an 70:24-25)

Fidya and Kaffarah 

Fidya and Kaffarah are important payments you need to make for missed or broken fasts.

Fidya and Kaffarah are important payments you need to make for missed or broken fasts.

 Fidya is paid when you miss fasts for reasons such as old age or illnesses that you can’t make up. You must feed a person in need two meals for every day of Ramadan. 

 Kaffarah is paid when you miss a fast without a valid reason and you’re unable to fast for 60 consecutive days. This donation will feed 60 needy people two meals.  

Both Fidya and Kaffarah should be given to the poor and needy and Save an Orphan uses your donations to help feed the poor, provide access to clean water and help with education and emergency aid.

Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariyah

Sadaqah is a form of voluntary charity, highly recommended in Islam as it carries great reward and brings numerous benefits such as easing sickness, purifying sins and warding of calamities. Allah has promised that he will multiply the reward of giving Sadaqah by at least 700 times.

By donating Sadaqah Jariyah, you can give a gift that keeps on giving to a loved one by donating in their name so they can gain rewards even when they have passed. Sadaqah Jariyah is also amongst the good deeds that accompany you in the grave. Your kindness and voluntary donations will be used towards benefitting hundreds of suffering children and their communities. 


Fitrana is a charitable donation of food that should be given before Eid prayer and before the end of the month of Ramadan. Fitrana must also be given by every self-supporting adult Muslim who has food in excess of their needs, on behalf of themselves and their dependents.

When you donate your Muslim giving to Save an Orphan, you can choose where your giving is directed towards, such as:

  • Emergency aid
  • Water relief
  • Food provisions
  • Education 
  • Livelihood support

We pray your Ramadan is full of happiness, joy and blessings. We pray you can multiply your rewards this holy month by helping those who need it most.

Thank you for the donations and lives you have already transformed; we hope you can continue to save lives this Ramadan.
