Sadaqah Donation

Sadaqah, implying charity, is the concept of voluntary giving in Islam fi-sabillilah’ -for the cause of Allah. The term stems from the Arabic root word ‘sidq’, which means sincerity. Therefore, offering Sadaqah is thought about an indication of sincere faith.

As Muslims, we believe that providing Sadaqah brings Barakah to our wealth and can even prolong life.

EXAMPLES OF SADAQAH

From a kind word or smile, to a monetary present that saves someone from hardship -any kind deed that assists others can count as Sadaqah. Here are some of the most popular kinds of Sadaqah donation provided to KORT:

 

To provide care for poor patients.

To provide nutritious food to the poor.

Pay for vital medical tools.

Sadaqah towards constructing a medical facility.

Assist towards constructing a healthcare facility.

Sponsor orphan Muslim and other religions.

 

WHEN TO GIVE SADAQAH

Sadaqah can be provided at any time, for any reason at all. You might wish to provide Sadaqah to mark or bring blessings to unique events such as a wedding, birth, or other important milestone. On these occasions, Muslims give Sadaqah as an indication of appreciation to Allah (SWT). Sadaqah can likewise be offered in times of unhappiness, illness, and bereavement, or even on behalf of others, living or deceased. Regardless of your motivation, what counts when giving Sadaqah is genuineness and seeking the enjoyment of Allah (SWT). And keep in mind, offering Sadaqah does not reduce your wealth. Provide kindly and without worry!

Muslims comprehend that the best charity is offered in private. You can give Sadaqah online through KORT easily and discretely at any time.

WHAT IS SADAQAH JARIYAH?

Sadaqah is any act of kindness offered without the expectation of anything in return; Sadaqah Jariyah is a long-lasting generosity, a gesture that continues to provide after you have gone. This typically includes funding the building and construction of a water well or water plant, planting resourceful trees such as olives and fruits or supporting the building of a school or medical centre.

BUILD A MEDICAL FACILITY WITH YOUR SADAQAH.

Offering Sadaqah to develop a medical facility is a fantastic method to enjoy ongoing rewards. INDUS Healthcare Facility in Karachi has been conserving lives for over 14 years.

SADAQAH DONATION FOR ORPHANS?

Orphans have no home, no food, and no family to defend them. They are weak and helpless and in desperate requirement of nurturing. Without these fundamental requirements in life, they are susceptible and often wind up working as slaves, being mistreated and made use of, or pass away of poor nutrition and illness.

You help us to improve their lives and give them a function to live when you provide Sadaqah. From our Month-to-month Food Parcels to our Sponsorship Programs that provide constant assistance. Your Sadaqah contributions guarantee we can offer our orphans access to both education and life-improving medical care, setting them up for a stronger, brighter future. Whatever we do is to protect and benefit orphans all over.

By providing orphans with the possibility to be youngsters in a loving environment and offering them hope and assistance, we can establish thoughtful, devoted adults who return to their neighbourhoods and help strengthen society.

AQEEQAH AND ISLAM

WHAT IS AQEEQAH?

The word Aqeeqah refers to that animal which is slaughtered on the seventh day upon the birth of a child. Aqeeqah is a way of showing gratitude and being thankful to Allah for blessing us with a child. The practice of Aqeeqah is encouraged in Islam. This is understood from a hadith narrated by Ibn Abbas (RA) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) carried out the Aqeeqah of Hassan (RA) and Hussain (RA) by slaughtering one ram each in their names.

RULINGS OF AQEEQAH?

According to narrations in the books of hadeeth, the scholars of Islam have mentioned the following rulings regarding Aqeeqah:

  • 2 goats should be sacrificed in the child’s name if the child is a boy.
  • 1 goat should be sacrificed in the child’s name if the child is a girl.
  • The hair of the newborn child must be shaved.
  • Saffron should be applied to the newborn child’s head.
  • It is Sunnah to give charity on the amount of the weight of the child’s hair equivalent to the value of silver. (i.e., if a child’s shaved hair weighed 5 grams, it is Sunnah to give the value of 5 grams worth of silver to charity as Sadaqah)
  • The child should be named by the seventh day.
  • All the laws pertaining to Qurbani relating to the animal will apply to Aqeeqah.
  • If for some reason only one animal is slaughtered on behalf of a boy then the Aqeeqah would be completed.
  • There are no restrictions as to how the meat of the animal should be used i.e., the person can keep it for himself, feed his family, or share it amongst the poor and needy.

WHAT DAY SHOULD AQEEQAH BE DONE?

The preferred day to slaughter an animal would be on the seventh day after the birth of the child. If for any circumstance someone forgot to do so, then he can do it on the following seventh day and so on (14th, 21st, 28th day). Although it is preferable to perform the Aqeeqah on the seventh day after the child is born, there is no harm in performing it before the seventh day or later.

Not everyone is fortunate to have children. Many couples try for years yet have no children. So, if you have been given the gift of a child from Allah, be grateful, and perform the Aqeeqah for the pleasure of Allah. May Allah accept everyone’s Aqeeqah and raise their children on deen and May Allah make our children follow the Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). Ameen!

HELP KORT SAVE LIVES

HELP KORT SAVE LIVES BY BUILDING THE LARGEST FREE-OF-COST HOSPITAL IN AZAD KASHMIR

INDUS-KORT appeal

The Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) said:

When a person dies, all their deeds end except three: a continuing charity, beneficial knowledge and a child who prays for them, (Hadith, Muslim).

With a population of 4 million people spread out over 5 thousand square miles, access to a healthcare facility is a major issue in Azad Kashmir. Those who do live near a healthcare facility are not able to afford expensive lifesaving treatments or find that the facility does not provide specialist services that they need.

To alleviate the pain of the suffering humanity in Azad Kashmir, KORT is building the largest hospital in AJK in collaboration with Indus Hospital to provide free quality healthcare for all.

This is a £10 million project which includes a 500-bed multidisciplinary hospital with a range of tertiary and secondary care services.

The hospital will be built close to the existing KORT Educational Complex along Jatlan Road in Mirpur Azad Kashmir.

This is the perfect opportunity for us to donate as Sadaqah-e-Jariyah (continuous reward) for us and our loved ones who have departed this temporary world.

Any amount of Sadaqah and Lillah is welcome.

For those who donate £1,000 towards this appeal, they will get a personalised brick tile in theirs or a loved one’s name installed at the hospital.

For those who donate a £5,400 share in a hospital ward, they can have theirs or a loved one’s name on a collective plaque which will be installed at the hospital.

Please donate Sadaqah & Lillah generously and help spread the word.
Please remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you are a UK Taxpayer as this will help with admin costs of the charity.

Sadaqah Jariyah

Allah invites us to this very specific investment through Sadaqah Jariyah. One of the most fantastic concepts in Islam is Sadaqah Jariyah. Sadaqah Jariyah is merely a one-time financial investment with repeating advantages and benefits. It is a one-off charity but with repeating and continuous reward. It is this type of Sadaqah which the Prophet (PBUH) stated will continuously benefit an individual even after their death. The Prophet (PBUH) said:

When a person dies, all their deeds end except 3:
a continuing charity, valuable knowledge and a child who prays for them,
(Hadith, Muslim).

Muslims are eager to offer charity which will continue to have the advantage to individuals after their death and continue to earn them a reward.

Any charity which continues to have positive results on an individual or community in the long-lasting can be thought about a Sadaqah Jariyah. Some examples consist of:

  • Building medical facilities, homes, and schools.
  • Setting up long lasting water
  • Cultivating crops which supplies food for several years to come.
  • Helping households begin a company which continues generating revenue for future generations.
  • Building a location to praise Allah.

In truth, we are encouraged in the Sunnah and from the practices of the Sahabah to consider Sadaqah Jariyah.

Sad ibn Abi Waqqas sought permission to donate his estate in charity, he was offered an allowance to do so, up to one-third of his estate. When a Muslim pass away, two-thirds are fixed for the needs of his inheritors.

These two-thirds are left behind for the worldly needs of others. Nevertheless, one-third is for us which we can take with us in the next life to help us for eternity.

This can take place through offering one third into Sadaqah Jariyah.
The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
[Qur’an 2:261]

This verse artistically narrates the multiplicity of reward for giving Sadaqah. Providing a single pound in Sadaqah draws numerous rewards. In truth, the impact of Sadaqah has favourable ramifications on the recipient as that pound travels through the system for the advantage of others. Also, this verse tells us that whatever we offer, has the possible to increase seven hundred times. That indicates the return on investment is 700%!

We should constantly try to find more opportunities and moments to get more benefit and the pleasure of Allah. Whatever we do now, will most surely benefit us in the Hereafter, and be a method to bless us in this world.

Free Medical Treatment

One's access to great health shouldn't depend on whether they reside in Bahria town or in the slums. One's access to quality treatment, shouldn't also depend on how much bank balance they have.

KORT has partnered with an organisation called INDUS they Offer Free Treatment to Individuals in Need in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir.

Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN) provides quality healthcare free-of-cost to countless deserving clients through its countrywide network of health centres in Pakistan. Starting with only one hospital in Karachi in 2007, IHHN is now handling multiple tertiary and secondary care medical facilities, Physical Rehab Centres, Regional Blood Centres, Neighbourhood Health Centres, and different Public Health Programs spread across Pakistan.

Indus Medical Facility & Health Network’s purpose is to offer indiscriminate, quality health care to all in state-of-art facilities across Pakistan. IHHN is a not-for-profit healthcare system that solely depends on public contributions. To achieve its purpose, IHHN is partnering with individuals, corporates, international donor companies, universities, global partners, and the provincial & federal government.

The lack of honesty in our federal governments and responsible authorities have caused an impaired health care system: causing unnecessary pain, suffering and vast deaths till now.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP?

There is an undeniable relationship between one’s income and access to good health care services. Income inequality has become a terrific barrier both on individual and systemic levels.

If we talk about our health care systems, it runs only to please the requirements of the rich and abundant due to the fact that they have the capability to pay for all the medical centres, pricey medicines and devices enabling the personal hospitals to grow in their medical organization and generate substantial profits.

If we talk about individual conditions, poor individuals have to invest a much greater proportion of their earnings on health care than abundant people do, and compromise on other necessary expenditures like food and education of children to manage within their restricted budget plans.

Medical trusts raise funds from the general public, to support the treatment and life-saving surgeries of poor clients providing a second possibility to live. The organizations are working on several objectives, including easing poverty and cravings, and concentrating on the application of their commitment to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other infectious diseases in the upcoming years. These organizations are likewise intending to develop national health protection and provide access to safe diagnosis and medications for all.

WHERE IS THE PROBLEM?

More than 70 million people in Pakistan are living below the poverty line, due to which they are unable to go through correct health treatment if they experience any disease. Estimated amount of surgical treatment backlog in Pakistan remains in millions every year.

– There are not lots of medical insurance prepare for impoverished neighbourhoods. They need to pay of pocket if they need any medical treatment but due to the restricted or no resources, majority is unable to go through surgical treatment.

– Beyond the expense of the surgery, they might have to pay for post-operative and pre-expenditures which consists of medical tests, medications, healthcare facility stay and other expenses. It is practically difficult for somebody who makes less than £2 a day to pay substantial amount for medical relief.

– There is absence of advanced medical centres and physician, due to which lower middle-class households are unable to get treatment centres.

– There are a minimal variety of beds in health centres but the variety of clients going to these health centres is a lot more.

– Every second patient including a child is put on a long waiting list and throughout the waiting duration, the client’s health further degrades. In many of the cases, patients end until their turn comes.

– There is no advanced healthcare services in run-down neighbourhoods, due to which bulk of individuals need to rely on doctors in their locations.

– Private medical facilities are out of reach for denied community, due to the high costs of assessment charges and surgery.

OUR VISION

Excellence in health care service free for all, to please Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

OUR VALUES

MUSLIM CHARITY

A Muslim believes that nothing in this life belongs to him/her and that everything will perish one day, even our bodies. We also believe that everything belongs to Allah. A Muslim also believes that on the day of judgement everyone will be questioned about how they spent their lives and how they spent their time as well as how they spent their wealth.

Allah mentions in the holy Quran:

“You will never attain closeness to Allah until you spend of what you cherish, and whatever you spend on anything, Allah indeed knows it.” – Quran 3:92

Allah also mentions in the holy Quran:

The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of God is as a grain of seed which grows seven spikes, in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies the reward for whoever He wishes, for Allah is all-Encompassing and knowing. –Quran 2:261

Muslim charity, which is also known as Zakat or Sadaqah in Arabic is the third of the five Pillars of Islam and a fundamental teaching. Giving charity and taking care of the fragile and poor are vital aspects of the Muslim character. Charity is so important that it comes after the declaration of faith (Shahada) and prayer (Salah).

Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him said):

“When a person dies, all their deeds end but three: a ongoing charity, knowledge which has benefit and a child who prays for them.” (Muslim).

From this we understand that after we die and we leave this world, the only things that will be counted and continue to benefit our souls will be our charity that we gave in this world e.g., building a well or water facilities for the use of people and animals, building a Mosque, a School, an orphanage, or a house for a needy family.

For a Muslim, charity is something that will increase in their book of deeds after their demise.

Wealth is a type of Amanah (trust) from Allah. We shouldn’t think that wealth is our right and only achieved through our hard efforts and sacrifices alone. Wealth is a test from Allah and the longer a person holds onto wealth and fails to share it with the needy, the harder it may become to part with that hoarded wealth. Hiding away one’s wealth and depriving the needy of kindness will not only come back to haunt the greedy, but their misfortune will increase, and they will be led down a misguided path. Let us save ourselves from any wrongdoing and donate to a Muslim charity today.

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him said):

“Stay away from doing unfairness to others, on the Judgment Day, it will turn into many darkness, and safeguard yourself against selfishness, for it ruined those who were before you. Prompted them to murder and treating the unlawful as lawful.” (Muslim)

So, remember that the poor and needy are all entitled to a portion of our wealth, and is our right as a Muslims to help them. Even if its £1 or £1,000, in the eyes of Allah it is the sincerity that counts and not the amount.

We ask Allah to grant us sincerity, grant us abundant wealth so we can spend in his path and take away greed out of our hearts. Ameen.

INDUS-KORT HOSPITAL – PROVIDING FREE QUALITY HEALTHCARE FOR ALL

Not all illnesses are what they seem.

Whilst the average Flu or cough could be averted by taking some medicine or rest, not all ailments are as simple to treat at home. The hospital buildings stand tall and proud as a place of restoration for the wounded, a place of safe deliverance for young mums and a place of rehabilitation for the troubled souls.

However, everything comes with its own expenses to pay for. Those who live in the UK will agree that the NHS is such a blessed privilege and bounty that others would fight for. It is a big blessing having all your medical needs looked after, especially if something tragic were to happen. Many Countries are unable to provide this free service hence citizens are forced to take out insurance or pay huge bills for everyday medicine like insulin shots.

Based in the highly populated area of Karachi lies The Indus Hospital, a hospital which provides healthcare to all who come to them completely free of charge! This is something which many hospitals can’t boast about. The Indus hospital gathers its funds from raising awareness to others within the community and internationally but also, like a charity, the hard work of volunteers and generous donors play a big part. The network itself has around 13 Hospitals but the one in Karachi has been situated amidst the slummed down streets of Karachi in order to tackle the concerns of healthcare for the poor.

The power of community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic, or hospital.
- Mark Hyman

With many people living below the poverty line, this hospital was considered a god send for the poor and terminally ill of Pakistan. They have partnered with others in order to keep treatment costs at zero and have even delved into education programmes both on-site and online for dentistry, midwifery, and medicine; all of this in order to grow the workforce and educate the country into becoming certified in the health industry.

With a population of around 4.5million people, Azad Kashmir is desperately in need of a hospital which is accessible for all and most importantly, provides ‘free’ quality healthcare. Majority of the people in Azad Kashmir live below the poverty line and must travel to the Pakistani capital of Islamabad for specialist treatment, a journey and expense that the poor simply cannot afford.

To alleviate the pain of the suffering humanity in Azad Kashmir, KORT will be building the largest free-of-cost hospital in Mirpur Azad Kashmir in collaboration with Indus Hospital to provide free quality healthcare for all.

The estimated £10million project will include a 500-bed multidisciplinary hospital with a range of tertiary and secondary care services to be introduced in stages including:
  • EMERGENCY MEDICINE (ADULT & PAEDIATRIC).
  • FAMILY MEDICINE
  • INTERNAL MEDICINE
  • PAEDIATRIC MEDICINE.
  • GENERAL SURGERY (ADULT & PAEDIATRICS)
  • OBSTETRICS & GYNAECOLOGY
  • ORTHOPAEDICS & TRAUMA
  • NEPHROLOGY & DIALYSIS
  • UROLOGY
  • EAR NOSE & THROAT
  • OPHTHALMOLOGY
  • NEUROLOGY
  • NEUROSURGERY
  • PSYCHIATRY
  • DERMATOLOGY
  • ENDOCRINOLOGY
  • MEDICAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT(MICU).
  • SURGICAL INTENSIVE UNIT (SICU)
  • CORONARY CARE UNIT (CCU).
  • PAEDIATRIC INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (PICU).
  • NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (NICU).

We can achieve so much when we join hands and work together.

Sadaqah, Lillah and Interest donations are accepted so please donate generously and help bring relief to the people of Azad Kashmir.
