Social & Welfare

The Social and Welfare Committee is responsible for providing programs and services to enhance living conditions of Muslims in adverse circumstances.
It manages the collection of Zakat and Sadaqah and makes sure that they are disbursed (according to the Islamic rules) to the needy people within the community including refugees, and also internationally, especially during times of crisis.
Within its charter to aid the local community, the Social & Welfare Committee also provides social services to help organize certain services such as Iftar during the month of Ramadan, Toys Drive at the time of Eid-ul- Fitr for the children of needy and refugees and Udhiyah/Qurbani at the time of Eid-ul- Adha.

With the blessings of Allah (SWT) the Social & Welfare Committee is able to help the needy including refugees using Sadaqah (Needy) funds, and those who qualify, with Zakat funds donated by the community.

Additionally, there are special fund drives to help victims of natural disasters and famine such as floods and earthquakes. Funds are also collected for the daily Iftar at Ramadan time.

May Allah reward you all and please continue to donate generously to help your brothers and sisters in need. And remember to make duwa for those in need and all the volunteers and staff.

Financial Aid Services
The Financial Aid Services are funds provided to people who are in time of difficulty and are in need of temporary financial aid.
Majority of the people seeking relief from financial need are either those who may have lost their job, or are in hardship condition because of change in family circumstances, or are new refugees to the US from foreign countries looking for help to get settled in the area.
This financial assistance is generally open to the local community (those who are residing in Greater Raleigh area) but can be extended to individuals residing in other Triangle areas on a case-by-case basis.
The financial aid services program is funded through the Zakat money given to IAR by the community for distribution.


How does Social & Welfare Committee distribute funds to the needy?

The AIC Social & Welfare Committee tries to reach and help as many needy individuals and families as possible in the area. Generally, financial aid is provided to individuals and families once a year, but specific need situations are also evaluated.
Additionally, funds are not given directly to people; rather, they are disbursed to the organization that the needy person owes the money. We write checks to the landlord for rent owed by the needy, utility company for unpaid bills, etc.
