Hifdh Sponsorship

    The Qur'an is the beating heart of Islam. It is Allah's revelation - 'The Guidance' - transmitted through the Messenger of Allah Muhammad Salallahu 'alaihi wasallam to help people navigate their lives in accordance with the Divine Will.

    As Allah's Word the status of the Qur'an is unrivalled and for this reason Muslims from the dawn of Islam have striven to preserve its authenticity. The cornerstone of Islam, it also forms of the basis of all religious learning.

    The Prophet Muhammad Salallahu 'alaihi wasallam emphasised the importance of providing education stating: 'The best amongst you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it.' - Sahih al-Bukhari

    Hifdh is the Arabic word for the memorisation of the Holy Qur'an. Ummah Welfare Trust seeks to continue this religious tradition by sponsoring students in various countries around the world.

    Your support provides a student with the financial means to complete what is usually a three-year course. It is one of the best forms of Sadaqah Jariyah and the donor can expect to receive Allah's blessings so long as the recipient remains alive. If the recipient has passed on his learning before his death, then the rewards continue through the vehicle of his students.

    Ummah Welfare Trust will provide you with an annual progrees report about the progress of the student you sponsor.

    Note: Alhamdulillah, due to the generous contributions of donors, the quotas for one-to-one Hifdh Sponsorships in Palestine have been met. Ummah Welfare Trust is now only accepting 'renewal-donations' from donors already sponsoring a student in Palestine.
