A Muslim must know the details of the rulings on Zakaah, its conditions, those required to pay it, those for whom it is to be paid, and the properties from which it is to be paid. This is because Zakaah is one of the pillars of Islam. Zakaah is the major economic means for establishing social justice and leading the Muslim society towards prosperity and security. The purpose of this course is to teach the Fiqh of Zakaah in the light of the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah of the Noble Prophet (May Blessings of Allah and Peace be upon him).

This course is one designed basically to give Muslims from all walks of life a backing or foundation to empower them to do Da’wah.
