Our Journey

Do you ever worry about your donation ending up in the wrong hands?

Syria and Yemen
After studying in Syria and Yemen prior to the break out of war, Shaykh Zaqir of Darul Arqam Educational Trust, Leicester heard from Syrian citizens in Damascus how large humanitarian aid agencies were accidentally providing criminal groups with aid. They would then trade with it, use it to oppress innocent civilians and fuel their crimes. Most aid agencies pulled out of the area as they lacked the networks needed to reach the innocent, leaving them unsupported and starving.

During the siege of Ghota, Damascus
During the siege of Ghota, Damascus, we were one of few organisations who used tunnels to get aid to a starving population, thanks to the guidance and network of Shaykh Zaqir. Revive was founded to serve those who have been left with nothing in a way which we can guarantee, your donation isn’t ending up in the wrong hands!

Yemen civil war
Soon after, Yemen tragically followed suit falling into civil war, rapidly developing into the world’s worst humanitarian crisis with widespread famine, starvation and disease. Shaykh Zaqir couldn’t rest at ease by serving one suffering land in which he inherited Islamic knowledge and not the other! Expanding his reach, Shaykh Zaqir used his network of teachers and friends in Yemen to deliver humanitarian aid to those who are most in need.

Charity working for Shaam, Syria and Yemen
In the past 10 years since the war in Syria first broke out and Yemen thereafter, the need has only increased. Revive has developed to become a specialist charity working to serve the people of Shaam, specifically Syria and Yemen in order to help the most needy in the world. Is it through this work that we seek to fulfil the words of our Master Muhammed ﷺ 'Oh Allah bless us in our Sham and in our Yemen' (Bukhari & Muslim) for the sake of Allah Most High."
