    1. Islam Does Not Say You Donate With Name and Fame.
      Charity is giving with One Hand and that your other hand should not know.
      Do it Silently.
      And why Not Donate to Aga Khan Foundation and the less Fortunate Muslims.

  1. As long as the donated money is truthfully,and honestly utilized for its original objective that really matters,Quran also encourages donation with the donors name announced ,if that would encourage others to do the same,AKDN budget is USD 925 Million ,that in itself is a matter to be proud of for all the Ismaies.
