Build a Mosque

The Al-Said Group is currently assisting in the construction of masjids around the world. What better barakat than to contribute to the building of a house of Allah (swt) even the smallest donation will bring ease to all inshAllah. Please specify if you have a particular country or masjid construction project you prefer your contribution to go towards. Non specified donations are split equally between as many mosque building projects as possible so that you contribute to building as many masjids as possible.

Help a Refugee

Refugees have for several years now been amassing on the edges of Europe, North Africa and the Balkans. Held in squalid conditions. Refugees flee a world of pain, hardship, war and torment to be held in detention centres and slums. Those who do make it into the EU often struggle to find work, training or education.

Working with a network of organisation we aim to provide not just on site essentials such as toys for children, medical supplies, food, clothes and hygiene supplies. We also aim to provide education, language courses and job training. This assistance gives a fresh start and a fighting chance to join main stream society in Europe. Not only benefiting the refugees but also the local communities they join and contribute towards for many years.

Medical Research

Working with individuals and organisations around the world we contribute towards research into the cures, preventions, treatments, devices and surgical techniques to make tomorrow a healthier, happier place that is that little bit less scary.

To specify a particular illness, procedure you wish to donate to please use the send a message section on the donate form. Eg. Cancer Research, Heart Disease, Mental Health Treatments etc.

Freedom of the Press

These donations are used to support independent news outlets and freelance journalists as well as causes to protect the legal framework that affords free press globally.

Please indicate the cause you are donating to in the donation form. If you forget to do this please contacts us via with your donation reference number and the name of the cause your donation is intended for and we shall ensure that your contribution gets there. 

All donations are sent directly to the relevant causes on a periodic basis. Paypal may charge a small handling fee which is outside of our control. To mitigate this we send our donations to the relevant causes on a monthly basis so that only one handling fee may be incurred each month.
