About Ceylon Baithulmal Fund
Research studies continue to show that more and more Muslim families in Sri-Lanka are falling into the poverty trap. Unless immediate action and comprehensive programmes are put in place, to systematically help the poor Muslims of this country, improve their conditions, they are bound to be forced into compromising positions of servitude for their survival. Time is running out for affluent Muslims and leaders of the community, to meet this social problem head on. No condition is permanent, and poverty and richness are Allah’s choices in His infinite wisdom, of allocating his bounties, in this life.
Today many Muslims in the working and business circles have little or no time to spare. Although very concerned about their religious obligations and sympathetic towards the less-fortunate, there is no time or contact for many Muslims of Sri-Lankan origin (particularly working in foreign countries), to reach out to the deserving Muslims (back) in Sri-Lanka. The Ceylon Baithulmal Fund (CBF) can assist you to fulfill your religious Zakat obligations and other wishes to help the poor. The Ceylon Baithulmal Fund, with its ground network, involving other organizations and approximately fifty years of experience, will receive your funds and make you a partner in any project of your choice, from the projects listed here. You will then be kept informed of the progress and impact your contributions have on the life of the beneficiaries. May Almighty guide all of us, make our intentions pure and noble and accept our prayers and deeds. Ameen.
