Permissible to send Zakat for eShaykh?


Assalaamu alaykum Mashaykh,

Kindly advise whether it will be in order to forward zakat in support of eShaykh’s fundraiser request.

May Allah grant long life to Mwl Shaykh Nazim, Mwl Shaykh Hisham and family and all Naqshbandi mashaykh and staff of eshaykh for all the good work and dedication, amin.



wa `alaykum salam,

One of the zakat categories described in the Noble Qur’an is FI SABEELILLAH (On the way of Allah) which means that one can give his zakat to spread the knowledge of Islam. Therefore, it is permissible to give zakat to support EShayk activities. Allah knows best.
