“ICNA Relief does a great job of domestically distributing the Zakat funds and charity on behalf of the Muslim community.”

-Sh Abdul Nasir Jangda

Zakat is for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to Truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by Allah and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom. 

[Qur'an 9:60]


At ICNA Relief, we consult with scholars to distribute your zakat to those most vulnerable among us here at home in the US.

Hundreds and thousands within our own communities, including refugees, depend on ICNA Relief's 31 food pantries, hot meal distributions, Ramadan food baskets, udhiyah/qurbani distributions across our 25 chapters. The Prophet (pbuh) said that the best charity is to satisfy a hungry person.

Refugee Services

Hunger Prevention

Refugees face a ton of new issues ranging from language barriers to unemployment and hunger, to transportation issues and bullying in school. What aspects does ICNA Relief help with? All of them.

ICNA Relief has Refugee Services in 10 states across the country and our staff helped close to 18,000 refugees coming from such countries as Syria, Burma, Iraq and others in the past year alone. We provide monthly food baskets, car donations, case management, translation services, in-kind donations and more.

Since it first started in 2005, ICNA Relief has not only sheltered, but helped hundreds of homeless sisters get back on their feet. Our 16 transitional homes are more than just places where abandoned or abused sisters can sleep safely at night; they are centers of empowerment where they are encouraged to become self-sufficient individuals.

Womens' Shelter Homes

Financial Assistance

ICNA Relief helps those in need in our communities, including widows and orpahans, through rental, utility and emergency financial assistance. Our staff meets with the individual or family to verify their need to make sure that your donation goes exactly where you have intended it.
