or donate via
For years, Al-Khaadem has been working at the grass roots level to educate, nurture and empower the local community through disseminating authentic knowledge and other beneficial programs. The aim is build a community that gives hope to mankind and makes them become better. Keeping this in mind, Al-Khaadem not only focuses on feeding the the poor and needy, but also focuses on development from various different important aspects.
This Ramadan, Al-Khaadem would request all donors to come on board and join hands in building a stronger community and making a better tomorrow for our children. Remember, it’s not the amount of money that is donated but rather the intention that really matters. Allah tells us, “Indeed, he who fears Allah and is patient, then indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.” [Surah Yusuf, 90]
The various different programs that you can support this Ramadan and make a direct impact include:
1. The Poor and Needy
30% of your help you will be devoted to the extremely poor and needy. These are beneficiaries that have been carefully vetted and identified by Al-Khaadem. To ensure that each Ringgit donated for charity makes a maximum impact, Al-Khaadem (AK) and SuperThinkers (ST) have joined forces since October 2019 under the banner of Skuad Prihatin Kemiskinan (SPK). Combining the strengths and experiences of ST and AK, SPK’s mission is to move families away from poverty to economic self-sufficiency. Look at the amazing work being done here.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever gives Iftaar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.” [Tirmidhi] After hearing this Abdullah Ibn Umar used to only break his fast with orphans and the poor and needy. Imagine, if you help feed ten fasting brothers and sisters. You would get the rewards for their fasting as well.
2. Youth Programs
12% of your help will be devoted to the personality development of our youth through highly engaging and beneficial programs such as Al-Khaadem Youth Camp (AKYC), archery activities, futsal, and so on. Your contributions can also help towards the expansion of our Youth Hub; a platform for youth to gather and engage in leisure activities in a safe space together. An example of this can be seen here.
3. New Muslim Community Program
11% of your help is devoted to the care, guidance, and support of our new brothers and sisters. This includes classes to teach them basic knowledge such as introduction of Islam for non-Muslims and also classes to teach fardhu ‘ain (necessary knowledge) for new converts. An example of such amazing classes can be seen here.
4. Dawah and Islamic Learning Programs
25% of your help will be channeled to continue the blessed work of the Prophets and Messengers of Allah. What is that? The convey the authentic message of Islam to different corners fo the world.

These programs include various classes delivered in a very comprehensive and easy to understand manner on topics like Shariah, Foundations of Islam, Fiqh (jurisprudence), etiquettes and manners, recitation of the Quran and many other classes that are needed by the masses.

Ramadan is a blessed opportunity for us to build our home in Jannah where even one small deed is also multiplied many many times. With this campaign, our donors have the opportunity to support not just one, but five different programs at the same time. The famous scholar and student of Abdullah Ibn Masud, Ibrahim an-Nakha‘i said, “Fasting one day in Ramadan is better than fasting a thousand days, and saying tasbeeh in it is better than saying a thousand tasbeehs, and one rak‘ah in it is better than a thousand rak‘ahs.” [Lata’if al-Ma‘arif]
Established in 1984 and officially launched in 1992, Al-Khaadem is a Malaysian humanitarian charitable body committed to helping those in need through effective charity and as guided by the Noble Qur’an and the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad.
‘Al-Khaadem’ means ‘The One Who Serves’. This philosophy of selfless service underpins the purpose behind the establishment of Pertubuhan Al-Khaadem, which is to help all mankind, spiritually and physically.
