Zakat Money goes to Syedna or poor?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear who ever the money goes to moula,or spent on mumineen in taklif or problems.

Zakat Money goes to Syedna or poor?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 60:Zakat Collections are for the needy, and the indigent, and for those who are employed to collect them, and for those whose hearts are to be won over, and for the ransoming of slaves, and for helping the debtors, and the way of Allah, and for the hospitality of the way-farers.


Brother, if the money collected by the leadership goes to the poor and needy, or is spent in the Cause of Allah as guided in the Holy Quran, then it is fine. And if the leadership collects the money in the name of Allah, and does not spend that money in Allahs Cause, then they will be severely held accountable in the Court of Allah. If the leadership are spending the zakat funds according to the dictates of the Quran, then they should not object in making known the full accounts to the members of the community. The fact that they refuse any accountability raises doubts and concern about their disposal.

Allah has warned the believers about the priests and holy men who devour the wealth of others by illegal means.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verses 34-35 :O you who believe! There are indeed many among the priests and the holy men who devour the wealth of others by evil means, and debar the people from the Way of Allah. Give them the good news of a painful torment, who hoard up gold and silver and do not expend these in the Way of Allah. The Day shall surely come when the same gold and silver shall be heated in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their bodies and their backs. (And it will be said): Here is that treasure you had hoarded up for yourselves! Taste now the evil of your hoarded treasure!



Allah Alone Knows Best, and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
