For those who give in Charity, men and women, and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit), and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward. (The Holy Qur’an 57:18)
Sadaqah is a charitable act of kindness that comes straight from the heart. The Arabic word 'sidq' means sincerity, and when given 'fi sabillilah' (for the cause of Allah SWT), it can bring blessings to our wealth and even prolong life!
Our founder, Imran Khan, believed this when he donated the entire sum of his prize money from the 1992 Cricket World Cup to build our first cancer hospital in Lahore. Since then, millions more from around the world have given generously in the hope of reward from the Most High.

WHEN TO GIVE SADAQAH
Charity does not, in any way, decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation [of the people]. (Muslim)
Giving Sadaqah is a wonderful way to show gratitude to Allah (SWT) and increase the blessings in our life, especially at special occasions such as weddings, births, and other important milestones. But it can also be given in times of sadness, sickness, and bereavement, or even on behalf of someone living or deceased. Regardless of your motivation, what's important is that you give sincerely and with the aim of pleasing Allah (SWT). Remember, giving Sadaqah does not reduce our wealth, so let’s give generously and without fear!
We understand that the best charity can be given anonymously. Give Sadaqah with Imran Khan Cancer Appeal online, easily, and discreetly.Give Sadaqah
EXAMPLES OF SADAQAH
Here are a few ways your Sadaqah donations can make a difference to our cancer patients right now:
Hospital Running Costs
Sadaqah is vital to the running of our hospital. It allows us to purchase essential equipment, such as radiation therapy machines, chemotherapy drugs, and medical instruments for surgical procedures. It also helps us pay the salaries of our medical team, like our nurses Jennifer and Ammara, as well as our security guards, cleaners, and other employees. The Zakat you give to us cannot be used to cover these expenses, making your Sadaqah even more important in helping us care for our patients.GIVE SADAQAH WHERE MOST NEEDED
Feed a cancer patient
The ongoing global crisis and recent floods created extra hardships for our poorest patients. Accessing basic necessities, such as food, can be particularly challenging for those travelling long distances to unfamiliar cities to reach our facilities. With your Sadaqah, we can make sure they have the nourishment and care they need to get through their treatment journey.GIVE SADAQAH FOR FOOD
Build Shaukat Khanum Karachi
The inauguration date for our third and largest hospital in Karachi is set for 2024! Our new state of the art cancer hospital will provide much needed support to patients in Sindh and Southern Balochistan. Unfortunately, 40% of Karachi's population lives on less than 80 pence a day, and 75% of people in the surrounding rural areas face similar levels of deprivation. By upgrading your Sadaqah to Sadaqah Jariyah you can help us complete our build on time, ensuring the poorest patients in the region have access to the healthcare they need.GIVE SADAQAH JARIYAH FOR KARACHI
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SADAQAH & ZAKAT
Both Sadaqah and Zakat are forms of charity in Islam, but they aren't the same. Zakat is a mandatory payment from those who can afford it. It's given from surplus wealth and benefits the giver more than the receiver. Find out more about Zakat at Imran Khan Cancer Appeal.
Unlike Zakat, Sadaqah is completely voluntarily. Described in the Holy Qur’an as a ‘beautiful loan’ to Allah (SWT), Sadaqah is any good deed done out of compassion, love, friendship, and generosity. It has no limits or guidelines and can be given to anyone. Even a smile can be considered Sadaqah.Give Sadaqah Calculate your Zakat
