How can I give Sadaqah?
The answer to this question is wholly dependent on intention.
‘Sadaqah’ has come to mean ‘voluntary charitable offerings’ in the usage of Muslims, but at the time of the Quran’s revelation and the Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) communication of its message, Sadaqah meant Zakat. So, Sadaqah encompasses the meaning of Zakat in God’s Divine Law, the Shari‘ah.
If you intend to give this gift as a part of your annual obligatory giving, then simply select Zakat from the menu of options.
If you intend to give this gift as a voluntary offering for the sake of God, then simply select from any of the other categories in the menu of options.
It is important to note that Islam imposes almost no restrictions in sadaqah, except that it come from lawful earning and be given to rightful ends with the intent of pleasing Allah.
All the donations to IMANA are spent on rightful causes; the funds are spent on healthcare of people around the world.
