Printing the Qur’aan is not one of the things that zakaah should be spent on
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
There is a charitable organization that distributes and prints the Holy Qur’aan, and translates its meanings into many different languages. Is it permissible to give zakaah money for this project?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.
The apparent meaning of the Qur’aan indicates that zakaah should not be spent on this project, because it is not one of the groups on which zakaah is to be spent, as mentioned in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):
“As-Sadaqaat (here it means Zakaah) are only for the Fuqaraa’ (poor), and Al-Masaakeen (the poor)…”[al-Tawbah 9:60]
The Council of Senior Scholars issued a statement saying that zakaah money should not be given to this project, as stated above.
And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
