Our Faith

We believe in the oneness of Allah that will unite the people

Our Values

We are guided by the timeless values and teachings of the Qur’an and the prophetic example (Sunnah), most specifically:

Sincerity (Ikhlas) - In responding to people need, our efforts are driven by sincerity to God and the need to fulfil our obligations to humanity.

Excellences (Ihsan) – Our actions in tackling economic matters are marked by excellence in our operations and the conduct through which we help the deserving people we serve.

Compassion (Rahmah) – We believe the protection and well-being of every life is of paramount importance and we shall join with other humanitarian actors to act as one in responding to suffering brought on by disasters, poverty and injustice.

Social Justice (Adl) – Our work is founded on enabling people and institutions to fulfil the rights of the poor and vulnerable. We work to empower the dispossessed towards realising their God-given human potential and develop their capabilities and resources.

Custodianship (Amanah) – We uphold our duty of custodianship over Earth and its resources, and the trust people place in us as a humanitarian and development practitioner to be transparent and accountable.
