The Spirit of Shopping

Posted on Tue, 2014-12-02 13:22

“(The reward of) all deeds depend on their intention.” – Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Have you ever wondered how to convert a daily chore or even an act of indulgence into something that will aid you in the hereafter? We all strive to try and incorporate a spiritual aspect into our daily, material lives, but often forget to under the pressure of busy schedules.

The World Federation of KSIMC has started a new scheme at no extra cost to you that can help you turn the simplest of tasks – shopping – into an act of worship. Simply support us through easyfundraising and every purchase you make can contribute to a good cause somewhere in the world! is affiliated with over 2,700 retailers including Argos, Currys, Amazon, Tesco and Debenhams. Whether you want to shop for your weekly groceries or plan a family vacation, you can find a reliable provider on their list.

When you buy from any of these retailers, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to a cause of your choice and we hope that will be us!  If you support The World Federation, your donations will go towards empowering children with the education they need to fulfil their dreams, providing basic necessities to the needy in poverty-stricken and war-torn countries and helping improve the social, economic and health situations of thousands around the world.

Who knew that adding a simple click to your shopping trip could give so much to the world?
