Subject : It doesn`t avail to Give Zakah to Quranic Centers

Fatwa Number : 647

Date : 22-04-2010

Classified : Zakat Distribution Channels

Fatwa Type : Search Fatawaa


Question :

Is an endowment for teaching Quran considered among Zakah disbursement channels?



The Answer :

All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May Allah`s peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

It doesn`t avail to give one`s Zakah to Quranic centers as the latter isn`t among the eight categories eligible to receive Zakah as stipulated in Chapter At-Tawbah, Verse 60. However, a Muslim who borrows money to establish such a center and becomes indebted as a result is allowed to receive Zakah for, in this case, he comes within the category of debtors. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
