Hifdh Sponsorship in the Philippines

    Hifdh Students

    Mindanao is located in the southern Philippines. The second largest island group in the country, its 23 provinces are home to roughly a quarter of the country's population.

    Alhamdulillah Islam has played an integral role in Mindanao's history, shaping its cultural and political legacy since it first entered the archipelago over a thousand years ago.


    'The best amongst you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it.'

    [Sahih al-Bukhari]


    Recent decades however have been difficult. A lack of Islamic effort has left many Muslims here in need of support and guidance.

    Huffadh and students of knowledge are today desperately needed. Ummah Welfare Trust, active in Mindanao for many years, has in response extended its Hifdh Sponsorship programme to the region.

    The Hifdh programme will support 150 poor students in Zamboanga city, giving them the full-time support needed to study Islam and memorise the Qur'an.

    Supporting one Hifdh student full-time costs £22 a month; or £264 for the year. This price covers food, lodging, resources and teaching costs.

    Sponsor a student today and help strengthen the Ummah with more huffadh of the Qur'an and carriers of the religion.
