‘Al-Khaadem’ means ‘The One Who Serves’. This philosophy of selfless service underpins the purpose behind the establishment of Pertubuhan Al-Khaadem, which is to help all mankind, spiritually and physically.
Established in 1984 and officially launched in 1992, Al-Khaadem is an international humanitarian charitable body committed to helping those in need through effective charity and enacting/carrying out the message of the Noble Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
We serve mankind regardless of colour or creed, to reflect Islam’s compassion. Our community-based work focuses on engaging the public through education at our centre, seasonal activities/outreach programmes and mission-based initiatives.
Worldwide, Al-Khaadem deploys aid and relief on a need-is-greatest basis to help the marginalised and vulnerable in communities affected by crises such as military and political conflicts, famine and poverty, and floods and earthquakes.
