Madrasahs, along with maktabs (or kuttab), trace their traditions back through nearly a thousand years of Islamic learning. Till today, they remain the single most vital tool for preserving Prophetic knowledge and cultivating it amongst the masses of the Ummah.

Ummah Welfare Trust continues to support and strengthen these indispensable institutions. Through subsidies, renovations and sponsorship programmes, the charity has helped establish hundreds of madrassahs and maktabs in recent years, alhamdulillah.

‘The world is cursed and what is in it is cursed, except the remembrance of Allah and what facilitates that, or one who has knowledge or one who seeks knowledge.’
[Ibn Majah]

You can support such maktabs and madrassahs through your Sadaqah and Lillah donations. By sponsoring a class or even full a maktab, you can ensure hard-working teachers are paid, while the children are given the books and stationery needed to learn.

Madrasahs and maktabs are integral to the health of any Muslim community. Support this project and play an invaluable role in safeguarding the iman of young learner Muslims who face ever-increasing tests in regards to their faith.
