  • Zakat al-Fitr is $10 per person, adult or child, in the household. Please pay your amount before the Eid prayers so that the funds can be distributed quickly. Please pay online today.
  • Do you still have Zakat ul-Maal left to donate? We are in the final hours of Ramadan, which is the best time to pledge or give your zakat to a charity of your choice or directly to someone in need. If you would like to give your Zakat to the Islamic Society of Baltimore for distribution, please click here now.

  • We thank the community for their continued support of the various programs and services at ISB. Help us in continuing improving and expanding with a donation today. This is a great time to contribute at least $20 towards operating costs or towards our construction fund – Donate!
