Zakah is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is very important for Zakah to be distributed amongst the most deserving needy one. Al-Ikhlas Centre understand the importance of Zakat and how it must be distributed in accordance with the instruction given by the Quran and the Sunnah. Al-Ikhlas Centre strongly believe that it is our Islamic duties to look after the wellbeing needy in our local community especially asylum seekers and refugees. Therefore we anticipate to distribute Zakah income to our local community in Cardiff, unless otherwise. It is a duty upon a Muslim to help his neighbours, hence, by giving us your Zakah, we will identify those who are most in need and ensure that your ZAKAT gets to where it is needed the most.

Importance of an Islamic will (Wasiyyah)

Allah says in the Quran which means: “Prescribed for you when death approaches any one of you if he leaves wealth is that he should make a bequest for the parents and near relatives according to what is acceptable – a duty upon the righteous.” {Qur’an, Surah al-Baqarah, Verse 180}

Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) said, “It is the duty of a Muslim who has anything to bequest not to let two nights pass without writing a will about it.” (Sahih al-Bukhari)

It is very important for a Muslim to fulfil their Islamic duties before departing from this world going to the next. A Muslim must ensure the following duties are fulfilled:
1. Funeral expenses
2. Clearing any outstanding debts
3. Execution of the Will
4. Executor of the Will

Where to get help and advice writing an Islamic Will?
Your local masjid Imam is a suitable person to go for help and advice pertaining Wills. Imams will then direct you to a reputable trusted solicitor who deal with writing an Islamic Will in accordance with the Islamic law.

Can I leave something for charity in my will?
Yes, you can certainly give charity in your will, it is classified as your final act of sadaqah. You are permitted in Islam to allocate up to one third of your estate that can go toward charity; if someone has no qualifying relatives, it can be more.

We hope you would consider leaving a gift to help the Mosque after you die or perhaps make a “Waqf” which is a sustainable, ongoing charitable endowment (such as Sadaqah Jariyah) that the Mosque will continue to benefit after you die.

If you already made a will, and you wishes to include a gift to Al-Ikhlas Centre, you could simply add a codicil.
