Zakat is an act of worship and a means of purifying one's wealth. By giving Zakat it cleanses our hearts against selfishness and greed. By doing so we acknowledge it is in fact not our own but a blessing to be shared. If the individual’s annual wealth or assets equals to or exceeds a certain financial threshold (the nisab) they are required to donate 2.5% of their wealth to those in need. The Nisab is defined as 612.4g of Silver or 87.5g of Gold.
“And establish prayer, give Zakat and obey the Messenger so that mercy may be shown to you”
With the blessings of Almighty Allah and your trust, through the support of Zakat donations given by you over the years have allowed us to provide free cancer treatment for countless patients hailing from impoverished family background.
There are countless vulnerable communities across our country in financial difficulties, unable to get the desired cancer treatment to their beloved ones. Zakat given by you during this holy month of Ramadan can help those who need it the most, especially when they need it.
Your Zakat is a beautiful pillar of Islam that we will ensure goes to the neediest. This includes emergency medical treatment and care of cancer patients along with other social welfare activities.

Zakat in Islam
Zakat is one of the pillars of Islam that must be met by the Muslims who meet certain criteria.
It is a particular amount that need be paid from particular categories of wealth, to particular categories of beneficiaries, with a particular criteria. Zakat is a blessing, symbolising purity, kindness, and a contribution to the development of entitled recipients.
There are eight categories of beneficiaries who are eligible to receive Zakat, which are clearly stated in the Quran (Surah At-Taubah:60) Allah (swt) says in this verse: “Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect (zakah) and for bringing hearts together (for Islam) and for freeing captives (or slaves) and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the (stranded) traveller – an obligation (imposed) by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.”
Any Muslim who possesses the required nisaab (the minimum amount of wealth that one must have before zakat is payable) for one whole year is bound to pay Zakat on that wealth. According to Islamic regulations, Zakat is 2.5% of one year’s total cumulative wealth.
Zakat Al Maal can be paid any time during the year and many choose to pay their Zakat during Ramadan.
Last two year, we all were struggling because of Covid and the people in need had no ways to get help. Inspite of all these hardships we received tremendous support from everyone during Ramadan and we received good contribution as Zakat. We are proud to say that the total Zakat amount was used for the welfare of the deserving poor and needy cancer patients. Alhamdulillah, we have been helping cancer patients from the past many years and we have made tremendous impact in the field of cancer. In the past year we have not only helped cancer patients with financial and medical help but we have contributed in welfare of the people in need by providing food to those in need, Oxygen cylinders to covid patients, various hygiene kits amongst the marginalised people in the society. Together we could impact so many lives.

Zakat Patient Appeal
We always felt our son as the strength of our little world. I still think about the lovely moments when our child was born and the nurse exclaimed, “It's a boy!” We held our little one with love celebrating his birth. But we never ever imagined that our lives will take such a worst turn in just last one year. It started since last April’2022 Ibadullah began suffering from vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss and appearing pale. On consulting our Pediatrician we were advised for blood tests in which after ruling out certain changes like decreased hemoglobin and platelet counts with increased WBC count, BMT test was done, through which he was diagnosed of a rare type of cancer “Myelodysplastic Syndrome” during November’2022. Presently, our child is living on regular blood transfusion and the kind doctors examining him have given us a hope saying that an urgent Bone marrow transplant worth Rs. Rs. 22.50 lakhs approx can only save his life. Sadly, I am unable to meet his treatment estimate, as I am occupied as a Tailor and the only breadwinner for our family. Therefore, we have approached CARF, who ensured to help us in our child’s treatment. Now my son can live only with your generous support. Please, save my son with your generous zakat!”
Our younger daughter Nabiha is a very cute girl and her smile hardly leaves her face. Just like every parent, we also feel both our daughters as most beautiful and precious gift ever blessed by Allah. But sadly, our Nabiha’s childhood is arrested by a cruel fate. It was during November’2022, she often complained about severe stomach pain. Even after undergoing the Pediatrician’s prescribed treatment did not impact her health. So we rushed her to the hospital, thereafter doing multiple tests including Sonography and blood tests, wherein shocking revelations came up, making us numb, as Nabiha had a rare type of cancer “Germ Cell Tumour.” According to our kind doctors, Nabiha can be saved with an urgent medical care and the treatment estimate is worth Rs. 3 lakhs approx, which is far way beyond our means. We hail from a marginalized family. Earlier I worked as a Daily wage laborer. Currently, due to Nabiha’s medical emergency, I am unable to work. So, we have come in contact with CARF, and they have agreed to financially support us in her treatment. We plead with you to help us through CARF; the price of our poverty should not cost our daughter’s life!
Our children are our only treasures and the reason to live. I and my wife always dreamt of a small family of four members and by Allah’s grace it was complete. But our small world turned upside down when our elder son Ayan began falling sick quite often since September’2022 with unusual symptoms like recurrent fever, body pain and tonsils. We took him to our family doctor, who observed that he had a rare condition and suggested us a second opinion for the high-grade fever. So, we rushed him to the hospital and after performing multiple tests, what came next became the most painful moment of our lives, when it was revealed that Ayan is suffering from a type of blood cancer “T-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.” According to the doctors, he needs an urgent medical care, estimation Rs. 5 lakhs approx, which is way beyond our means. Basically, we hail from Uttar Pradesh, where I worked as a Dental technician and our family has been living with my meager income. But, unfortunately, since past few months I lost my job and currently there is no income. During these worst times, we came in contact with CARF and they have agreed to financially support us in Ayan’s treatment. Please help us with your generosity to them for saving my son!
Every parent feels children bring into their lives immense joy and pleasure. They raise their children facing every hardship with a smile and a lot of expectations. During 2019, our daughter- Mahek was first diagnosed of “Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (a type of blood cancer)” by the doctors after performing multiple medical tests. That moment left us wholly shattered. Even though the prescribed treatment costed us a hefty amount, Allah helped us to withstand our hopes. We utilized all our savings with borrowed funds and successfully completed her treatment. Sadly, the cruel fate is still following our daughter, since last year January’2022, she began falling sick again with recurrent fever, vomiting, nausea and weakness. After re-consulting our doctor and with further medical investigations, it was reported of “Relapsed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia”, for which the prescribed BMT treatment estimate is around Rs. 25 lakhs approx. Sadly, I have no means to reach this high amount. I am occupied as an auto-driver and our family lives with my petite income.Therefore, at this juncture, we have approached CARF, who promised us to help in Mahek’s treatment. All my daughter needs is a helping hand which will go a long way in saving her life. I plead with you to come ahead and support us with your kindness in saving my daughter!
