Fundraising charity events is from the ploys of the Ikhwaan Muflisoon

بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم

Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb – may Allah preserve him –


There’s a thing what some people do; either a group of women, or charity representatives, they refer to it as “charity dishes”, and it’s basically each participant brings what they have with them (to the event), then they gather to sell it, then the money raised they give it to particular charities, such as for the cancer illness or for orphans etc.

Is this action permissible?

May Allah reward you with good O Shaykh and bless you.

This method O Shaykh has become widespread between women especially in Ghaytha Al-Mahra.


This is from the ploys of the Ikhwanl Muflisoon to gather donations. We advise to keep away from it.
