ZAKAT ASSESSMENT, COLLECTION & DISTRIBUTION
Our primary objective is to provide quality Zakat assessment, collection and distribution services to both private and public individuals as well as corporate bodies. We’re ever-ready to respond to any of your inquiries on Zakat assessment, sadaqat payment or distribution anytime of the year.
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT SUPPORT
Zakat collected are used to procure merchandise goods, vocational materials, and equipment among others. This, we do in order to assist the poor to establish small-scale enterprises or repositioning of existing one.
In fulfillment of the obligation of Allah to acquire knowledge, ZSF is seriously concerned about the education of Muslim students. We pay for their school fees, procurement of educational materials and research grants to both local and international students among others.
As a matter of priority, this is one area that touches our hearts deeply. We help those in need to off-set their bills, procure medications, treatment, undergo surgical operations within and outside the country as the situation demands.
ZSF is fully committed to putting a smile on the faces of widows and orphans. This, we try to accomplish through the sadaqat we collect from donors. During Ramadhan, Eid-ul-Adha festivals, ZSF usually provides food items, clothing materials and some monetary incentives to these people.
We support the building of new Mosques or renovation of existing ones. In addition, we provide utility materials to other ones as the case maybe.
IFTAR SAIM SUPPORT
Annually, we organise Iftar Saim (i.e feeding of fasting Muslims) across the southwest and some parts of the south-south and northern part of the country. We provide bags of rice, live chickens, beverages and fruits among others.
We encourage Muslims to revive the culture of executing projects that the less-privileged would continuously benefit from while the executor(s) too will continuously reap bountiful rewards from Allah. This can be accomplished by digging boreholes, building schools, provisions of good motorable roads among others.
INFAQ AFUW (DISPOSING FAIRLY USED MATERIALS)
Many well-to-do people have abandoned materials in excess and are left unattended to; thus, they get rotten away even as their fellow men and women suffer in abject poverty. To assist the have and have-not in this direction, we encourage people to donate used or abandoned materials to us for onward distribution to the less-privileged ones and hence get reward from Allah.
We collect donations of land, buildings or money as an endowment which are invested, the profits from which are given away as charity for indigents, or for construction of public utilities such as borehole, schools, hospital etc
SUPPORT SERVICES TO MUSLIM ORGANISATIONS
There are many Muslim Organizations’ propagating pristine Islam and in their endeavours, they encounter a number of challenges impeding their growth and development. To complement their efforts, we provide office needs, furniture, propagation instruments, food items for camping programmes, sponsorship of seminars/workshops among other.
DETERMINING & SHARING INHERITANCE
ZSF assists in the administration of deceased estates and in most cases, we offer professional advice on inheritance that is Shariah compliant based on request.
