Serving the humanity and alleviating their sufferings is an obligation on the Muslims, as well as our national identity. Allhamdullilah, since its creation in 2010, Baitussalam Welfare Trust is extending its efforts by supporting the deprived and underprivileged in the fields of both welfare and education, and thus has touched the lives of over 100 million people. These traits express the belief and define the culture of the organization and serve as a means of enlightenment of our hearts and achieving spiritual contentment.
We cannot educate the poor and eradicate poverty all by ourselves; it is an collective effort that necessitates the nation’s contribution. Together we can inspire and enable other humanitarians to respond rapidly to disasters and injustice around the world, fight poverty through our Islamic values and make a positive change for the entire Muslim Ummah.
The Trust serves in the fields of Education, Publications, Healthcare, Sports, Community Sustainable Development, Shelter, Safe Water Supply, Food Security, Non-food Essential Items, Transport, Event Management, Skill Development, Livestock, Agriculture, Livelihood, Recycling and Waste Management, Environment Conservation and Energy along with other Welfare, Relief and Charitable causes. It also provides specialised services to Muslims around the world including Aqiqa Qurbani, Iftari Programs in Ramadan, Waqf Qurbani during Eid-ul-Adha, Burial Services, Construction and rehabilitation of mosques and Muslim schools.
Currently, Baitussalam’s operations are spread across Pakistan as well as in Syria, Turkey and Bangladesh through our international partners.
Founded in December 2010, Baitussalam Welfare Trust came into being after the devastating floods in Sindh and Punjab rendered thousands homeless. Hadhrat Maulana Abdus Sattar (DB) and like-minded humanitarians from varying professional and social backgrounds, came together to lend a helping hand. Maulana Abdul Sattar envisions a world of peace, compassion, and justice where the needy and helpless achieve a fulfilled life. Together with working in all parts of Pakistan, we have also provided humanitarian help to Rohingya and Syrian refugees.
