Some of our Major Giving Projects

Build a Masjid

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ‘Whoever constructs a masjid for Allah, Allah will construct a house for him in Paradise’. (Bukhari)

A masjid is at the heart of any local Muslim community. It provides a place for its worshippers to pray and contemplate as well as being a hub for educational programmes and other everyday services. The role of the masjid is to help people learn more about Islam and to nurture their moral and spiritual development.

By building a masjid you will not only earn the reward of providing a community with a house of Allah, but your Sadaqah Jariyah will continue giving benefit for generations to come in sha' Allah.

Locations include PakistanSudanNigerMali and Bangladesh. For other locations and for more information please contact us at:

Build a Classroom

The Muslim Hands Build a Classroom scheme is an opportunity for you to construct a classroom which will be functional for many years to come. Each classroom will carry a commemorative plaque of the donor.

It is a unique Sadaqah Jariyah providing much needed educational facilities to disadvantaged communities.

Education is the key that unlocks countless opportunities. It is a way out of poverty, a driving force for social change and an important aspect of personal development and welfare. This is why it is at the heart of the work we do.

Without properly equipped classrooms many kids in deprived communities struggle to learn. A classroom will create a safe and comfortable learning environment.

Large Water Projects

'The best charity is giving water to drink'. (Ahmad)

With over 800,000 people dying from water-related illnesses each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities in the developing world. Access to clean water can transform the lives of a whole community.

You can make a difference to thousands of people when you give your Zakat or sadaqah to one of our Major Giving water projects.

These specialised constructions serve large communities suffering from a severe lack of clean water and include solar-powered boreholes which use the sun's energy to bring fresh water up from deep underground and filtration plants which make previously undrinkable water safe for everyday use.

You can choose from several locations across Africa and Asia. 

Safe Water


Many people in developing countries have the skills and enthusiasm to generate an income for themselves, yet lack the opportunity to put it into practice. Our livelihoods projects provide them with this opportunity by catering to the specific needs of the communities that we work with. 

You can provide support to whole communities across Africa and Asia through our large-scale Livelihoods projects.

What better way to use your Sadaqah and Zakat than to empower others with the skills and resources they need to help themselves out of poverty?

Training widows in tailoring, providing farmers with livestock and gifting female-headed households with chicken farms are just a few of the ways you can help.

You will receive a pesonalised feedback report and a commemorative plaque with your name on will also be installed.


It All Started With 100 Chickens: Empowering Widows in Afghanistan

For decades, the people of Afghanistan have been paying the price of political instability and a weak economy. This, coupled with times of drought has led to deepening poverty in the country. Widows and their families are amongst the most vulnerable members of poor communities. Without a main breadwinner to support them, they face an uphill struggle to survive. 

When one generous donor approached the Major Giving team wanting to support widows in Afghanistan it kick started a project that would help 200 women and their families by providing them with 100 chickens and cockerels each, farming equipment and training empowering them to support themselves and their families.
