Believing at home

Muslims believe that charity starts at home too! Islam teaches us to look after our community and to care for our neighbours.

The Messenger of Allah, (PBUH), said:

"Jibril kept recommending me to treat my neighbour well until I thought that he would tell me to make him one of my heirs"

(Bukhari: 6014).

At Human Appeal, we believe in giving where the need is greatest. Often that is in parts of the world that are experiencing war, hunger and natural disasters, but sometimes help is needed in our own communities too.

More than a million people in the UK are so poor they cannot afford to eat properly, keep clean or stay warm and dry. In a typical week, almost 85,000 households in the UK are reliant on charities for essentials such as food, clothes, shelter and toiletries.
