The Qur'an states: 'And be steadfast in your prayer and pay charity; whatever good you send forth for your future, you shall find it with Allah, for Allah is well aware of what you do' (2:110). Charity is central to a Muslim's life.
The best charity is to satisfy a hungry person, said Prophet Muhammad (SAS). He also said "No wealth (of a servant of Allah) is decreased because of charity." (Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 2247).
Charity is a way of bringing justice to society. And justice is the essence of religion, Islam has therefore made charity that is Zakah, obligatory and binding upon all those who embrace the faith; it has been made into an institution in order to give in permanence and regularity.
Being a Muslim owned business, IslamiChina has been supporting poor Chinese Muslims since it the first day it was established in 2002 working with various organizations such as mosques, charity foundations and Islamic Associations of different levels since its establishment in 2002. China is a big country with rich areas and poor areas. To be honest, among those 30 million Chinese Muslims, majority of them live in the poor and remote areas: Northwest China’s Ganxu, Qinghai, Ningxi and Xinjiang. In order to help those poor Muslims living in those areas, IslamiChina is organizing Qurban Tours every year to some of the remote areas: we contact local Islamic Association; we pass your Zakkat to local Islamic Association; local Islamic Association shall take pictures of sheep or cattle with your name on it and send the picture to us; we will send the picture. Besides helping foreign Muslims to donate Zakkat to poor Muslims in Northwest, IslamiChina is also actively involved in charity programs: each year IslamiChina will donate certain amount of sheep and cattle to poor Muslims living in Zhangjiachuan county of Northwest China’s Gansu Province where many of them still live caves.
