Muslim Philanthropy

There is general agreement that we don’t know as much as we’d like to know about Muslim philanthropy, a phenomenon broadly defined as giving ‘of any kind, which involves self-identifying Muslim individuals, institutions, communities, and societies as key agents’. This lack of knowledge is remarkable given that Muslims comprise almost a quarter of the world’s population, and give around $1 trillion per year according to some estimates.

In the new issue of Alliance magazine, out on 4 September 2018, guest editors, Tariq Cheema and Yunus Sola, argue that the potential of Muslims to contribute to the well-being of humanity would be greatly enhanced if their philanthropy was more accountable, strategic, professional, and better directed.
