How we spend your sadaqah

We need your Sadaqah just as much as we need your Zakat. Here is why:

Your Zakat allows us to provide free treatment to 75% of our patients at Shaukat Khanum, every year. Without it, we would not be able to save lives. But to treat cancer patients we need medical equipment, hospital wards, doctors and medicine. These are things we cannot purchase with Zakat.

Transparency and Shariah Compliance:

At Imran Khan Cancer Appeal, we are very particular about the disbursement of the Zakat funds you entrust to us. Thats why the Zakat we receive is utilized exclusively for providing direct patient care to poor patients. For every other expense, we use Sadaqah.

Why give Sadaqah?

Your Sadaqah and Sadaqah Jariya will go towards hospital construction costs and essential equipment. It will help us diagnose, treat and support cancer patients for years to come. Here’s what your Sadaqah Jariya can achieve:

Give Sadaqah Jariya to our Karachi Hospital Project

The Prophet (saw) said, ‘When a man dies, his good deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which [he has passed on and] is beneficial; or a virtuous descendant who prays for him.’–Hadith Muslim

In December 2015, your Sadaqah Jariya enabled us to give new hope to patients in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region, with Pakistan’s second cancer hospital. Though only partially equipped, Shaukat Khanum Hospital (SKMCH) Peshawar started offering chemotherapy from the outset. Since then, our six-bed chemo bay has seen a turnover of 18-20 patients per day, six days a week. We now need your support to bring hope to Karachi. Find Out More

How does Giving Sadaqah benefit you

Why give Sadaqah when you will already be giving Zakat? This is a good question. Many of us forget that Zakat is a form of worship, that benefits the giver more than the receiver. It is in fact obligatory on every able Muslim, and not voluntary charity. In Islam, voluntary charity is Sadaqah, and among its liberal rewards are Baraka -the increasing of one’s wealth and health.

And treat your sick by giving charity… [Al-Bayhaqi, 3/282]

IKCA uses your sadaqah to save lives. Find Out More about the Islamic tradition of Sadaqah and its beautiful benefits to the giver.
