British Muslims donate £301 per hour over Ramadan 2018
11th July 2018, London

The holy month of Ramadan is a special month in the Islamic calendar when Muslims around the world fast from sunrise to sunset, in the UK it was around 18 hours this year. It’s not only about abstaining from food and drink but also about giving to the poor and the needy. British Muslims donate substantial amounts of money towards charitable causes supporting projects at home in the U.K. and around the world.

This year during Ramadan British Muslims have donated an average £301 an hour over the month of Ramadan through MuslimGiving.

Managing Director and Founder of MuslimGiving Sadiqur Rahman was very impressed and said “It always amazes us to see the generosity of British Muslims, supporting and donating to vital life saving projects to support the needy at home and abroad”.

Co Founder of MuslimGiving Ebadur Rahman went onto add “The number of Muslims in the UK is approximately 4.1 million and the British Muslim community has been widely acclaimed for their generosity in charitable giving so this isn’t surprising.”

According to Third Sector, these numbers don't account for money donated to local mosques or non-Muslim charities. With projects like this receiving support, the long term impact of British Muslim giving will resonate for years to come.
