Meet Our Imams

Our program and projects are imam focused in order to bring about the greatest impact and change in his community through the hand of an Imam. Your contribution will assist, support and develop the Imam, enhancing his position as the Imam; making him a better leader in his community.

Our Programs

IDP runs a series of innovative and need-sensitive programs across the communities our Imams serve. The programs belong to multiple categories: Zakat, Sadaqah, Sadaqah Jaariyah, Hardship Relief, etc. We also undertake the responsibility of implementing a number of programs for local and international charities. We invite you to explore and donate to various causes.

School & Madrasah

The fund is designed to provide financial support to students and families who face barriers in accessing quality education due to financial constraints.

Zakat Al Maal

Zakah is a pillar of the faith wherein Muslims are required to pay annually 2.5% on their specific Zakatable assets. This is given to 8 categories of recipients as outlined in Surah Tawbah, verse 60.

Zakat Al Fitr

A charitable donation that must be given before Eid prayer, before the end of the month of Ramadan, for the love of Allah. Let our Imams distribute to members of their community!


If one has missed fasts and is unable to make them up then one has to discharge the Fidyah. Fidyah is feeding a poor Muslim for each day missed. A day includes 2 meals at $3 each.


A charitable compensation made for intentionally breaking fasts during Ramadan or for breaking an oath. One broken fast = one meal for 60 people. Breaking oath = one meal for 10 people.

One Dollar One Meal

This Imam Program is to inspire and support Imams, their students by providng foods and meals.

Imams First

The expectations of an Imam are high, but the resources are few. Help us put Imams First this Ramadan by supporting and empowering these community heroes.

Hardship Relief

A fund aimed at alleviating the burden of unforeseen financial expenses to help Imams, their families, and the community.


Explorers aims to give Imams and their students the opportunity to explore places within their city they’ve never experienced before

Bonus Program

Through a year-round schedule of bonus events and activities focused on community upliftment, the Imam works towards receiving prizes, which include cash, gift cards, and home appliances as well as give him chances to improve the quality of life in his community

Economic Empowerment

Economic Empowerment was started with the goal of supporting Imams toward becoming financially independent.
