The goal of this annual project is to raise funds for charity and at the same time help you, the donor, give charity on Lailatul Qadr (The Night of Power), which is better than 1,000 months!
Your donation (zakat or general charity) is divided into 10 equal parts and given to different charities on each night of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, thereby helping to ensure that you “hit” Lailatul Qadr Inshallah. Last year, the Montreal Muslim community donated over $40,000! We hope to make a new record this year, with your generous help and contributions, Insha Allah.
How it works:
The money you donate will be spread out equally over the last 10 nights of Ramadan. Zakat donations will only be distributed to the zakat eligible causes. Rest assured your donation will be distributed over each of the last 10 nights of Ramadan; therefore, part of your donation will be given on Lailatul Qadr Insha Allah!
