    With charity and giving to the needy being a key principal of Islamic faith, several Muslim groups and Islamic centers across the United States have been working hard to help the less fortunate during the hard times of COVIDx-19 pandemic.

    In Houston, Texas, a leading Muslim non-profit organization has been giving to Houstonians of all faiths.

    Starting its work in Houston in 2005, ICNA Relief, a branch of the Islamic Circle of North America, hosts food drives, medical assistance, transitional housing, and more.

    “If you look the logo for our organization, it says ‘Muslims for Humanity,’” said ICNA Relief Houston’s Seemi Bukhari, ABC 13 reported.

    “This is the backbone of our religion.”

    Though the majority of ICNA’s work focused on helping refugees, this all changed after COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in 2020.

    Partnering with the Houston Food Bank, people of all ethnicities and backgrounds received food from ICNA Relief.

    “We were giving food to around 450 families a month (before the pandemic),” said Bukhari. “In July and August it went to 1200 to 1400 people.”

    ICNA is one of the largest, non-profit, grassroots Muslim organizations in North America. It has many projects, programs, and activities designed to help in reforming society at large.

    Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services, and relief efforts.

    In 2018, 50,000 children benefited from backpacks with school supplies distributed across more than 110 cities, with over 220 partners, in 35 states and Puerto Rico.
