Help support Ulamas of India in crisis due to effects of the Coronavirus lockdown

Ulamas teaching our children Quran and Deeniyat in the remote villages of India have had no wages at all for the past few months due to the coronavirus lockdown. They are now in such poverty whereby they are in the position of being eligible for taking zakat to feed themselves and their families, that’s just to survive.

For the sake of Deen, they have been giving service to the poor and deprived children for many years in remote villages on nominal wages. They have given sacrifice for years, living in conditions that we would not be able to imagine. Due to these circumstances, they are unable to teach, receive a wage, and apart from their current living conditions, are struggling to acquire even the basics of necessary foods. They are now in need of our help and support more than ever in these difficult times.

£50 will feed an aalim and his family for a month.

£300 will feed an aalim and his family for 6 months.

They are now pleading to us to give whatever we can in Lillah, Sadaqah & Zakat.

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Zakariyya Jaam'e Masjid to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Zakariyya Jaam'e Masjid we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Zakariyya Jaam'e Masjid to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Zakariyya Jaam'e Masjid will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Zakariyya Jaam'e Masjid receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
