Zakat Disbursement

There are eight groups of people on whom Zakat should be spent, as mentioned in the Quran:

“The alms are only for the Fuqara’ (the poor), and Al-Masakin (the needy) and those employed to collect (the funds); and to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allah’s Cause, and for the wayfarer (a traveler who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.” [Al-Quran 9:60] To apply for Zakat please complete the Zakat Application form and submit to the MAH office.

For more information please contact: Br. Abdul Latif Barih at

Again, on behalf of the MAH Board of Directors, Staff, Majlis-e-shura, Umar masjid committee members, Imam Sayed Tora, Imam Syed Abdullah Qadri and Sheikh Arafat Elashi we wish you a Ramadan full of blessings. We ask Allah SWT to grant us sincerity and strength to maximize and increase our efforts during this great month so we may be of the successful and righteous people during this month and after.
