    I kind of recall reading one of your posts discouraging people to donate at certain organizations (or maybe it was Fakhri-Ibn-Ali).

    Do you have anything against IslamicRelief or Zakat.org? What are some reliable charity organizations that I could feel comfortable recommending to others?

        I highly recommend listening to this talk because most people I know do not understand the Islamic criteria for Zakah and Sadaqah but this talk covers a lot of bases:

          Hour long lecture. I'll try to listen to it when I get home inshaAllah.

          Let's say someone approaches you and says they have $100 they're willing to donate to a charity. Which charity organization would you recommend? Do you favour one over another?

          Also, what are your thoughts on the charity ads that are promoted on YouTube? Do you guys get the skinny Muslim boy crying and the Syrian Niqabi woman as well? Would you donate to those organizations?

            I used to donate, when I could to Islamic Relief. From what I know, they are a good organization.

              I've istened to 26 minutes of the lecture and it doesn't really sit well with me. I understand that Sadaqa is not "the solution" to our problems, but the impression I'm getting from the speaker is that donating money to charity organizations is pointless. No one's arguing that our "spare change" is going to solve the crisis the Ummah is facing, however, we cannot overlook the desperate need of the Rohingyans, Syrians, Palestinians, Uyghurs, etc. These people are in need of basic necessities (i.e. food and water) and it is an act of worship to share from what Allah has provided us.

              Perhaps the lecture gets deeper as it progresses. Feel free to explain anything that I've missed out.

                I have used al-Khair etc. before too. Depends where you live to be honest.

                5pillars frequently attacks the dodgy charities, would recommend a quick search with any charity you are interested in. (They are in the UK though).

                    That's brother Maz. I've listened to a few of his talks over the years and he really knows his stuff especially in the context of current affairs and the Islamic viewpoint on that side of things. He's based around the midlands.
