"A man's true wealth is the good he does in this world."
(Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
One of Noor Ul Islam’s main aim is the prevention or relief of poverty.
By working with reputable international aid agencies we have been able to collect much needed funds from our supporters and distribute this to those in desperate need of our help.
We have collected and distributed funds for Zakat, Fitra, Fidya, Qurbani and emergency disasters.
The aid agencies we work with furnish us with reports and photographs to give us and our supporters confidence that funds are being distributed correctly.
We regularly display reports and photographs of our overseas work at Noor Ul Islam mosque.
Below are a selection of some of the projects we have worked on recently.

In 2019, Br Zafar from our Head office visited the Thar region in Sindh Pakistan, where he distributed food packs and aid to the poor and needy on behalf of Noor Ul Islam. The region suffers from poverty, lack of clean drinking water, unemployment and high illiteracy rates. Much of the area is rural and inaccessible and it is one of the most under-developed districts in Pakistan with no electricity and no roads.
Muslims celebrate Eid Ul Adha by sacrificing animals including sheep, goat and camel during the month of Dhul Hijjah.
