Zakath (obligatory charity)
Crescent charitable Trust  collects and distributes Zakat donations per Islamic guidelines as mentioned in Al-Quran, Surah At-Tawbah, Chapter 9, Verse 60.
For further explanation on who should receive Zakat, please below
“The alms are only for the Fuqara’ (the poor), and Al-Masakeen (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-Know-er, All-Wise.” [Al-Quran - 9:60]

The eight categories mentioned in the verse above are:

  • Fuqaraa: Those who own property in excess of basic necessities but below the value of Nisab
  • Masakeen: Extremely poor who possess no wealth whatsoever
  • Aamileen: Those persons who are appointed by an Islamic Head of State or Government to collect Zakat; this person does not have to be a needy person to qualify for Zakat
  • Muallafatul Quloob: Those poor and needy persons who may have recently converted to Islam; Zakat is given to them with the intentions of solidifying their hearts or to bring them closer to Islam
  • Ar-Riqaab: slaves whose masters have agreed to set them free on a payment of a fixed amount; Zakat may be used to purchase their freedom
  • Al Ghaarimeen: A person whose debts exceed his assets; to qualify, his/her net assets (after deducting liabilities) must be below the Nisab limit
  • Fi Sabeelillah: Those who are away from home in the path of Allah
  • Ibnus-Sabeel: A traveler, who, whilst wealthy at his residence, is stranded and in need of financial assistance

How Crescent Distributes Zakat:

Zakat funds are mostly distributed directly by Crescent’s own team, however, it sometimes becomes necessary to engage other reliable organizations and partners in order to extend Crescent’s reach. Zakat funds are used to support orphans, widows, poor elderly, families in extreme poverty, poor women for marriage, deserving students, poor medical patients, and people affected by disaster.
Crescent   utilizes Zakat donations under the following projects:

  • No Orphan without Education
  • Job Skills Training, Spread Education
  • Support Crescent Schools
  • Crescent Institute of Farming and Agriculture
  • Clean Drinking Water
  • Medical Assistance
  • Medical Camps
  • Basic Computer Skills
  • Software Development Training
  • System Administration Training
  • Animal Farming
  • Farmer Assistance
  • Small Businesses for the Poor
  • Disaster Relief
  • Marriage Support
  • Widow/Orphan Support
  • One Million Meals
  • Zakat Distribution

The proper distribution of Zakat is a personal responsibility. Preferably, you are encouraged to give Zakat yourself to the deserving.  However, if you are not able to do so, you may give it to a reliable person or organization capable of distributing Zakat per Islamic guidelines.
