People to whom Zakah is paid and how it is paid


Junior Member
People to whom Zakat is paid are those that are entitled to it, and these are the eight groups of people that Allah Almighty mentioned exclusively in His statement: “As-Sadaqah (Zakah) are only for the Fuqara’(poor), and Al-Masakeen (the needy), and those employed to collect (the Zakah), and to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined towards Islam, and to free captives, and for those in debt, and for Allah’s cause (i.e. for those fighting in holy battles), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.” (At-Taubah: 60)
