Q. Can I give my Zakaat to Muslim workers that are paid a measly salary? A. If these Muslim workers are struggling to feed their families with their “measly” income then it is permissible for you to give them Zakaat. Furthermore, it is necessary to ensure that they do not own excess items, such as TV, ornaments, etc., or items on which Zakaat is waajib, such as jewellery, to the value of the Nisaab of Zakaat.
The Jamiatul-Ulama Gauteng is not a fund raising organization. When depositiong funds, make us your unfettered “Wakeel”. If you are depositing Zakaat, do please ensure that a few extra Rands are deposited in order to offset bank charges.
