Zakat

Zakat is a religious obligation, ordering all Muslims who meet the necessary criteria to donate a certain portion of wealth (2.5%) each year to charitable causes.

Our Promise!

100% of your Zakat goes to local eligible recipients in Luton. As a registered charity the government gives a gift aid contribution on all donations made by taxpayers, we intend to use the gift aid received from Zakat donations to support our other community projects such as, Sacred Study Fund, Community Fund & the Scholar and Student fund, all being used back into the community as a continuous charity.

If there is someone locally who is in dire need then giving the money to him or her will please the Prophet  the most. Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect them and benefit us by them)

Approved by our Teachers

The whole process has been checked and approved by our teachers and conforms to the parameters of the Hanafi Legal School . We continue to consult our teachers for each Zakat applicant to ensure clarity.

Distributing Zakat locally

Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Prophet (ﷺ) sent Mu`adh to Yemen and said, “Invite the people to testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and I am Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), and if they obey you to do so, then teach them that Allah has enjoined on them five prayers in every day and night (in twenty-four hours), and if they obey you to do so, then teach them that Allah has made it obligatory for them to pay the Zakat from their property and it is to be taken from the wealthy among them and given to the poor.”

Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari 1395, In-book reference: Book 24, Hadith 1
