LALMA, a non-profit Muslim organization engaged in Islamic educational activities (dawah), qualifies to receive zakāt.

 The Qur’an ordained eight specific beneficiaries of zakāt. Allah says, “[zakāt] is only for the indigent, the poor, those employed to collect it, to unify the hearts of those inclined [to Islam],  for [freeing] captives,  for [aid to] those indebted,  for [spending in]  the path of Allah [fī sabīli Allah] and for the wayfarer.  It is an ordinance from Allah.  Allah is all-Knowing, Wise” (Qur’an, 9:60).

LALMA qualifies for zakāt under the seventh category of beneficiaries described above, that is, fī sabīl Allah (“spending in the path of Allah”), because of its work to advance the real image of Islam.

No legal prohibition exists in Islamic law (shar’ia) that prevents groups like LALMA from receiving zakāt to conduct its educational activities and promote Islam in the Latino community. Allah knows best.

 The above statement is issued by DR. FIAZUDDIN SHUAYB (Ph.D. in Islamic Studies, UCLA 2012), former Islamic instructor of LALMA (2006-12). Email queries to:
