What is FAST-A-THON?
Fast-A-Thon is Islam on Campus’ biggest event of the year! We host over 500 people each year in an effort to raise money and create awareness for social issues around the globe. How do we do this? We invite people from all backgrounds to fast for a day and come together at sunset to break their fast. In Islam, fasting is an act that allows us to appreciate our blessings and motivates us to give in charity to those who are less fortunate. For every person that pledges to fast, IOC pledges to make a donation on their behalf.
Our theme for this year is gratitude, which we recognize is not simply limited to a feeling but is expressed in how we must use the blessings we have to benefit humanity and act as allies to the less fortunate and vulnerable. In order to be truly thankful for these blessings and genuinely worthy of them, we must not keep them to ourselves. Through active gratitude, we not only cleanse our own mind and spirit, but also support our communities—proving its worth as humanity’s greatest gem.
Our goal for this year is to raise $25,000, which would surpass any amount raised since the beginning of FAST-A-THON.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “I will be like this in Jannah with the person who takes care of an orphan. The Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ then raised his forefinger and middle finger by way of illustration
Every year, Islam on Campus unites with charities through Fast-A-Thon to give back to our communities. This year, we are happy to announce that we will be partnering with Baitulmaal and their orphan support program!
Baitulmaal provides life-saving, life-sustaining and life-enriching humanitarian aid to under-served populations around the world regardless of faith or nationality. Their goal is to work towards a world free of want through principles of integrity, creativity, and excellence.
Baitulmaal serves as a conduit between the compassion of our donors and the needs of our beneficiaries. By contributing to Baitulmaal’s orphan support programs, you can give an orphan a caring presence. A chance at an education. A sense of belonging. A better future.
