One of the UK’s oldest mosque, Masjid Ramadan (Shacklewell Lane Mosque), has announced that it has decided to accept crypto for donations for Zakar and Sadaqah.
The mosque is set to be the first to accept cryptocurrencies for donations during Ramadan for Zakat and Sadaqah.
On 21 May Monday, the Masjid Ramadan committee organised a meeting in relation to charities benefiting from crypto money in Ramadan, the Masjid Ramadan chairman Erkin Güney, Islamic Consultant Zayd al Khair and the Combo Innovation Founder Gurmit Singh were the speakers at the event.
Erkin Güney intends to put the crypto money toward philanthropic activities. “The zakat will be used to feed the poor in our local community and help others in need. We will also put a portion aside to help with the urgent renovations needed at the mosque,” said Güney.
He hopes that his example can inspire mosques and Islamic charities around the world. ”If the cryptocurrency campaign is a success and we do receive donations. If it works, I’m sure many other mosques and Islamic charities, not just in Britain but worldwide, will start doing the same.”
