Support a Zainabiyya

Empower Women to Establish & Sustain Holy works from their Homes

What is a "Zainabiyya"?

A Zainabiyya is a sacred space which acts in the same functioning manner as a Zawiyyah or Khankha. Our Zainabiyyas are owned and operated privately by individualls globally. Those operating in low-income communities require support to sustain acitivities and programs. The purpose of supporting a Zainabiyya is designed to empower female community leaders to hold space for women and girls in their respective communities.

SZF has a growing number of global Zainabiyya sacred spaces. As part of our campaign to spread the love and teachings of the Ahl al Bayt, SZF supports Zainabiyyas in South Asia amidst underprivileged communities in order to support women leadership, hold spaces for women to heal and connect.

  • Khatam of One Quran

  • 21- 40 Khatam of Yasin 

  • Salawat Shareef Khatams
