AUTOMATE your DONATIONS and COMPOUND your rewards in the Akhira with SMALL BUT CONSISTENT sadaqah!

The Prophet (ﷺ) told us that “The MOST BELOVED of deeds to Allah are those that are MOST CONSISTENT, even if it is small.” (Bukhari).

And what better form of sadaqah jariyah than giving the gift of Islamic knowledge?

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“When a man dies, all his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity (sadaqah jariyah), beneficial knowledge, or a righteous son who will pray for him.” Muslim (1631).

“Whoever sets a good precedent in Islam will have the reward for that AND the reward of those who do it after him, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest.” Muslim (1017) 

Imagine getting the reward of educating over 270,000 students as well as everyone they benefit until the day of judgment! Allahu Akbar!

For as little as $1.60 a day (or $50 per month), you could become a backbone sponsor of our Scholarships program and get the reward of every single Muslim that benefits from IOU's scholarship programs.

Since 2007, IOU has benefited over 270,000 students through our various programs:

  • The General Diploma in Islamic Studies (GDIS) program
  • Islamic Studies and Islamized Certificates, Bachelors, and Masters degree programs
  • Quran memorization and tajweed programs through the Global Quran Memorization Center (GQMC)
  • Hosted lectures, webinars, and seminars by renowned speakers and educators around the world
  • Our free educational program to prisoners in the US and Africa
  • And more!

You could have a share in this reward by helping us keep authentic Islamic knowledge as affordable and accessible as possible - we CAN NOT do this without your support!

All you need to do is pledge a small monthly regular contribution and become a champion of sadaqah jariyah!

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“Take up good deeds only as much as you are able, for the best deeds are those done regularly even if they are few.” (Ibn Majah 4240)

Why Donate?

Did you Know?

Doing charity is one of the best deeds you can do and that teaching someone beneficial knowledge are among the best forms of ongoing charity.

1) Ongoing charity until the day of judgment

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever calls others to guidance will have a reward like that of those who follow it, without that detracting from their reward in the slightest.” [Muslim 2674].

“When a man dies, all his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity (sadaqah jaariyah), beneficial knowledge, or a righteous son who will pray for him.” [Muslim 1631].

2) Allah multiplies your rewards

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever gives charity equal to a date from Halal earnings, Allah will take it in His right hand and tend it for the one who gave it as any one of you tends his foal, until it becomes like a mountain.” [Bukhari]

3) Extinguish your sins

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Shall I not inform you of the gates to goodness? They are fasting which is a shield, charity which extinguishes the sins like water extinguishes a fire, and the prayer of a man in the depths of the night.” [Al Tirmidhi]

4) Shade on the day of judgment

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” [Al-Tirmidhi]

5) Protection from calamities

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity." [Tirmidhi].

6) Multiplication of your wealth

"Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned." [Quran 2:245]

7) You could be considered the best of mankind

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "The best of people are those that bring most benefit to the rest of mankind." [Daraqutni]

Who We Are

About International Open University

Founded in 2007 by Dr. Bilal Philips, the International Open University (IOU) has been one of the leading providers of affordable, accessible, and authentic Islamic higher education in the online space.

From our humble beginnings, offering only a free Islamic studies diploma, we now provide fully accredited undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate degrees across multiple fields of study; from Islamic Studies to Business Administration.

With over 270,000 students from over 195 countries, IOU continues to positively impact the Muslim Ummah through higher education.

Charity Has Always Been a Core part of IOU

As we strive to impact the lives of as many Muslims as possible, we inevitably run into charitable opportunities for us to come together to benefit the underprivileged.

Whether it is providing scholarships to the underprivileged or building learning centers to make education more accessible, educating the Ummah is not something that we can do alone, it is something we must do together as an Ummah.

In such cases, we open these opportunities to the Ummah to maximize the impact and to share in the reward.

Education is an Amanah and so are Your Donations

To ensure that your donations reach their intended recipients in an efficient, transparent, and legal manner, IOU has partnered up with Global Open Learning Foundation based in Malaysia to collect and distribute donations for our various educational initiatives.

Additionally, we strive to keep our donors regularly informed through our updates and reports so you can know exactly how your donations have been used and the impact it has made.
