Muslim people are known to be humble and generous when it comes to contributing for charity. However, the current socio-political scenario prevalent all over the world has spawned widespread fear and suspicion, making it all the more difficult for people to contribute for charitable causes. A number of organizations for islamic charity have shut shop on allegations of using funds to satiate terrorist causes. This is the prime reason why a majority of Muslims feels wary about contributing. It would therefore be advisable to research the market well before taking the plunge. Keeping such considerations in mind, here are a few organizations that have stood the test of time and earned repute as honest Islamic charity trusts.

Islamic relief is undoubtedly one of the most prominent development and relief organization for Muslims. The company has a global presence with offices located in thirty-five countries. For those who did not know, it has been given a prestigious four star rating by Charity Navigator.

LIFE is another noteworthy name in this list. It was founded by a group of Iraqi-American professional’s way back in the year 1992. The organization mainly provides humanitarian assistance to people in nations like Afghanistan and Iraq. Like islamic relief, this organization too is the recipient of Charity Navigator’s four-star rating. Muslim Aid is yet another organization that has been working relentlessly to provide relief for Muslims. The organization aims at providing long-term assistance and emergency relief to people. Their prime focus, as such, remains on sustainable development programs, which work to uproot poverty.

Red Cross is one name that has been offering relief services to people of nationalities for quiet some time now. There are, in all, 186 National Red Cross Societies around the world. They have formed a strong network of volunteers who provide humanitarian services globally. When it comes to Islamic charity, the Red Crescent is generally used in place of the normal Red Cross. The system of providing relief is extremely secular. As discussed already, it makes no discrimination on grounds of religious beliefs, race, political opinions or class. Every national society is more or less independent and fully supports public authorities in their respective nations, with local expertise and knowledge, access and infrastructure.
